New Fiction

There are tons of new picture and fiction books that have just been added to our collection. Here are some of my new favorites:

Woof: A Love Story by Sarah Weeks. This is a charming little story about a dog who becomes enamored with a kitty. Of course, she doesn’t understand his terms of endearment because she doesn’t speak “woof,” but the language of love has no boundaries, especially when the dog plays his music for the kitty. She finally understands his feelings for her and she falls in love with him as well. The mixed media in this picture book creates a collage of cuteness.

I Can Help by David Hyde Costello. A ducky becomes lost and is helped by a monkey, who in turn is helped by a giraffe. This endearing picture book has sweet faced little animals that are polite and obviously helpful. If you want to introduce your little one to manners then maybe this book can be of service.

Henry in Love by Peter McCarty. Ah, first love. Little Henry has fallen for cute little bunny, Chloe, who can turn a perfect cartwheel. He chases after her during tag and even gives her his blueberry muffin for snack time. Imagine his thrill when his teacher seats him next to Chloe during class. The dreamy illustrations make this story absolutely adorable.

Milo Armadillo by Jan Fearnley. Tallulah wants a pink fluffy rabbit for her birthday, but her grandmother knits a pink armadillo instead. Tallulah is disappointed at first and makes the armadillo feel that he isn’t good enough for her since he’s not a rabbit. When he leaves, Tallulah desperately wants him back. The pair is reunited when she follows a pink string all the way to her grandmother’s house and then they go home together. The drawings are filled with pastel colors, yarn, fabric and sequins. This story is charming in every way.

We also have tons of Rainbow Magic Music Fairy books, such as Victoria the Violin Fairy, Fiona the Flute Fairy, Poppy the Piano Fairy, and Maya the Harp Fairy.
