STAFF RECOMMENDATIONS
Pam's Picks Discovery - The love of children's literature prompted Pam to purchase A Children's Place in 2003. These are five of her favorites.
River of Words by Jennifer Bryant
In this picture book biography, Bryant's engaging prose and Sweet's stunning mixed-media illustrations celebrate the amazing man who finds a way to earn a living and to honor his calling to be a poet.
Maybelle in the Soup by Katie Speck
Maybelle is a lovely, plump cockroach. She lives in her own cozy little home under the refrigerator of Mr. and Mrs. Peabody. Maybelle knows it's best to stay hidden away, but she simply adores food. Just once she would love to taste something yummy before it hits the floor! When the Peabodys invite a Very Important Guest for dinner, Maybelle can't resist. She takes a teeny taste--and splashes into the biggest adventure of her life!
Good Egg by Barney Saltzberg
An interactive board book with flaps, tabs, and pop-ups, "Good Egg" is that rarest of rare books where utter simplicity is utterly irresistible. No sentence is longer than two words, yet an engaging story is told.
Duck! Rabbit! by Amy Krouse Rosenthal
From the award-winning author of "Little Hoot" comes a clever take on the age-old optical illusion: Is is a duck or a rabbit? There's also a subtle lesson for kids who don't know when to let go of an argument.
Number Garden by Sara Pinto
In this follow-up to "The Alphabet Room," Pinto presents a delightful story-within-the-concept book. A resourceful pair of rabbits plant carrot seeds and celebrate in a garden that grows as 12 elements all add up to 78 items. Includes flaps to lift. Full color.
