RobinThe Robin Makes a Laughing Sound:  a birder’s journal by Sallie Wolf

Sallie Wolf has written a sweet little children’s book that will help your kids (and you!) identify birds and their unique behaviors.  Line drawings and water colors share the page with short     poems and other insights.  This non-fiction treat is ideal for a trip to the park or tucked in a backpack for a walk in the woods.


In This Book by Fani Marceau and Joëlle Jolivet

I am in the poppy, said the bee. I am in the nest, said the bird. I am in space, said the planet . . .

 Best-selling author and illustrator team Fani Marceau and Joëlle Jolivet bring delightful linocut inspired art to life in In This Book. The illustrations are fabulous:  straightforward, page-filling, bright colored fun.  This unparalleled concept book will start all kinds of conversations with your favorite kids.

Funny-Farm_TeagueFunny Farm by Mark Teague

Everything really is funny when Edward visits Hawthorne Farm for the first time.  Little ones will giggle at sheep brushing their teeth, Edward running from hens with his basket of eggs, and all the good-natured animals living on the farm.  And, with a little luck, the American Gothic parody on the cover will remind you to tell your kids about Cedar Rapids’ own Grant Wood.
