Bears and Rain and Skates…oh my!!

Published December 4, 2016 by One Page at a Time

Il Sung Na  who has written A Book Of Winter, A Teacup in the Storm and many others, has a new title coming out in March of 2017.  Thanks to Edelweiss and Knopf Books for Young Readers  for advanced access to this new book, Bird, Balloon Bear.  Bird is new to the forest and wants to make a new friend.  He sees Bear and decides to approach when just at that moment Bear makes a friend in Balloon.  Bird feels left out and wants to join in.  When Balloon disappears (pops actually), Bird and Bear then become friends.



Raindrop Plop! by Wendy Cheyette Lewison and illustrated by  Pam Paparone is a counting book told in rhyming text.  The little girl journeys outside and the counting goes from 1-10…..until it rains too much then she runs inside and the counting goes backwards.  A fun story I am looking forward to reading at storytime!



Little Red Gliding Hood by Tara Lazar  and illustrated by Troy Cummings is a “fractured fairytale”…or in my words a fairytale twist…..Super great illustrations and fun text tell the story of Little Red who wants to take part in an ice skating competition but she doesn’t have a partner.  Her Granny makes all kinds of suggestions and then one day Little Red meets Wolf out on the ice.  Will he eat her?  Will he follow her back to Granny’s house?  Will they become friends?  This is a little wordy for me to read at a storytime but it is worthy of getting added to the the collection at school!


For Just One Day……

For Just One day by Laura Leuck  and illustrated by Marc Boutavant  is an adorable book about a kiddo who imagines, for just one day, that they were are different creature.  Illustrations that remind me of the 60s with rhyming text, this will be a hit at storytime!

Princess Tales by Grace Maccarone

Told in rhyming text with seek and find pages, this story went above and beyond my expectations for a princess book.

Princess Tales: Once Upon a Time in Rhyme with Seek-and-Find Pictures

Advanced Reader Copies from Edelweiss

Thank you to Edelweiss and the publisher (Random House) for these great ARCs.

None of these are coming out before the beginning of the year.  All of these I would recommend however they won’t all work for storytimes.  Count on the Subway, Go! Stop! and Ten Eggs in a Nest will be added to my collection of storytime books.
