Recommended Books

  • Gus, Nellie, and baby Jake can't wait to go on a picnic!  You will follow them through the day as they gather and prepare their food for a yummy meal in the park. Funny, accessible, and filled with illustrations, conversations, and matter-of-fact text, this is a great read-a-loud to help you and your child explore how healthy food and drinks fuel our bodies and how being active is healthy and wonderful! (Ages: PreK - 2nd)

  • A look at the Presidents of the United States through the pets that accompanied them to the White House. A lyrical, often humorous poem describes the pets as each is brought to life by a cartoon style picture. Includes interesting presidential facts, accomplishments, and events. Would make a great read-a-loud as the pictures, poems, and facts make it fun and accessible for a range of ages.(Ages: 2nd - 5th)

  • The Fletchers have their hands full – 2 dads, 4 boys, a cat, a dog, (eventually) a kitten and a turtle, imaginary friends, and a very grumpy neighbor! But, not to fear: this loveable family faces everything together and works through all their growing pains, friendships, and hectic schedules with humor, patience, love, support, and, when necessary, notes! Makes a great read-a-loud or Audiobook to listen to for the whole family. And don't miss the continuing adventures in The Family Fletcher Takes Rock Island. (Ages: 3rd - 6th)
