Once Upon A Starry Night: A Book Of Constellations by Jacqueline Mitton and illustrated by Christina Balit
At The Supermarket by Anne Rockwell
Baby Shower by Jane Breskin Zalben
¡Clemente! by Willie Perdomo and illustrated by Bryan Collier
The description in the book describes this as a “lyrical tribute to all the fathers everywhere who come home to their children—from the rabbit father who hops home to his little bunnies, to the dog father who comes home to his puppies.” This never-before-published book looks like another classic from the author of the classic Goodnight Moon.
The London Eye Mystery by Siobhan Dowd
Guinea Dog by Patrick Jennings
A patron came in the other day and mentioned that this was one of her favorite books growing up and was ecstatic to be able to share it with her daughter. It’s the tale of a doll and her adventures as she travels from owner to owner over the course of the century. In 1930 the book was awarded the John Newbery Medal for excellence in American children’s literature.
A novel about a 12 year old boy who’s hired as a consultant for the Atlanta Falcons because he’s a football genius. Combining a mixture of action, intrigue, and a little bit of insider knowledge from author Tim Green, this is a fun read for young readers, especially boys, whether they like football or not.
The Boy Who Climbed Into The Moon by David Almond and illustrated by Polly Dunbar
Taking a break from thrilling adults with his stories, author Jack Higgins delivers an action packed book that plays out like a movie and is a nice choice for young readers, especially boys who might have a hard time finding books that will interest them.
The Groundbreaking, Chance-Taking Life Of George Washington Carver And Science And Invention In America by Cheryl Harness
Are We Alone? Scientists Search For Life In Space by Gloria Skurzynski
Extreme Weather: Science Tackles Global Warming And Climate Change by Kathleen Simpson
A very insightful book for young readers about how women have served in every war the United States has fought, even when their contributions weren’t widely acknowledged. It’ll also give the reader a sense of not only how far women have come, but how far military science and medicine has come because of them. The book features a foreword by Walter Cronkite.
Tsunamis: Witness To Disaster by Judy Fradin and Dennis Fradin
