Here’s a 5-minute video of a variety of our picture books and chapter books including some of the ones just released this month. Keep in mind this is only a sampling of our entire line. Contact me with questions or to schedule a shopping day to see these and others for yourself. No obligation and you’re welcome to have friends and/or children join us. Or not. 🙂
I can also help with book fairs, read-a-thons, fundraisers, you name it. If you can dream it, we can do it. Let’s talk!
Have you seen our Shine-a-Light series yet?
Pair these with a small flashlight and these make fantastic gifts. Each right-hand page has hidden secrets that can be discovered by shining your flashlight behind the page. What fun you’ll have gathering round at bedtime to discover the hidden pictures!
Children love learning about the habitats hidden in the foliage, a tree trunk, or underground. Train lovers and fans of construction vehicles get to see the inner workings normally hidden from sight. Get one or invest in several. Your kids are going to love these!
Our Shine-a-Light books are a great big hit with kids from ages 4-8. As you read the story they get to shine a flashlight behind every right-side page to reveal the hidden secrets of nature. What fun!
Let your kids guess what they’ll find hiding in each illustration. They won’t easily forget what they learn about habitats, tide pools, and tree trunks. Pair these titles with a small flashlight for a delightful birthday gift or a special treat for overnights at a grandparent’s house. Purchase one or purchase several in the Shine-a-Light series.
I’ve highlighted some of these new picture books already but it’s nice to hear when others shower praise on them. Pick on the book picture for detailed info about notable features of these titles.

BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR
“A diverting interactive introduction to several coastal species, from otters to oystercatchers.” – Publishers Weekly
This playful read aloud for preschoolers sports thick, coated pages to stand up to your toddler’s abuse. Kids who pick up on the rhyming, sing-song text will soon be joining along in the fun. Enjoy this video of a kindergarten teacher reading the book, then add I’m a Dirty Dinosaur to your library.
Or at least hug your kids and share this title which explores what to expect at the doctor’s office and the work that doctors do to help us stay healthy. One reviewer writes that this title is “ideally suited for reading to young children, for sharing ideas with slightly older children and being read by early readers.” From the First Experiences series, you can see more about this and others in the series here.
Told from the girl’s perpective and then the beast’s, A Tale of Two Beasts depicts what happens when a little girl rescues a strange beast from the woods. This wonderfully entertaining tale introduces children to the idea that every story has two sides and it’s important to consider the other side too. This is fantastic for reading aloud and for reading in groups as well.
