FEATURED PICKS FROM CHILDREN’S BOOKSELLER BRITTANY!
Adventures for Breakfast
Luna and Milo’s grandmother believes that everyday should start with a hot bowl of oatmeal, but her grandchildren are tired of it. Rather than suffer through another bowl, the sneaky siblings write her a letter of apology, explaining the incredible, hair-raising, hilarious, and unbelievable occurrences that are preventing them from joining her at the breakfast table; including, suddenly being swept out to sea, getting inside a giant ant farm, and even floating adrift in space! Breakfast will never be the same, but hopefully Luna and Milo will make it back in time for lunch! Filled with page after page of hilarious, colorful illustrations guaranteed to make kids and parents roll with laughter.
Goodnight Little Bookstore
Amy Cherrix, E. B. Goodale (illustrator)
Join the Little Bookstore’s friendly staff as they draw the curtain on another busy day of browsing and matchmaking. Choose a bedtime story, say your good nights, and pet the shop’s feline mascot on your way out. Snuggle up to a loved one for a read-aloud, then drift off to sweet dreams of adventure and enchantment to come. Drawing on the best tradition of classic bedtime books, Amy Cherrix’s lilting text brims with sound play, soothing patterns, and repetition, while E. B. Goodale’s bright, inclusive artwork offers people-watching at its best, conjuring the bustling, ineffable mood of a homespun hall of treasures. Penned by a bookseller and illustrated with warmth and zeal, this cozy homage to the neighborhood bookshop ends with a gallery of bookstores around the world, encouraging local engagement and offering a gentle reminder that books are gifts that keep giving, the most comforting treasure of all.
New POW! Book Alert
Pout Party is a story that playfully portrays how difficult it can be to put your best foot forward when you’ve woken up on the wrong side of the bed. Poor Rue wakes up on the wrong side of the bed. Nothing makes her happy. Even her socks aren’t cooperating. When she gets to school, all her friends want to play, but she’s not in the mood. Instead, she invites everyone to join her in a pout party. “No games, no cake. Don’t be happy or excited.” Unfortunately, everyone thinks Rue’s party sounds fun, and they all come to show off their biggest pouts. In no time at all, everyone is laughing, but will Rue find the humor when all she wants to do is grumble? Illustrated in beautiful, bright pastels, Pout Party is a sweet, funny story for every kid who has ever felt out of sorts and needs a smile.
