Picture Book Selection: The Boy and the Moon

A young boy has a nighttime adventure dancing under the moon with his animal friends. They play, they dance, they howl. But, when the moon gets stuck in a tree the boy must find a way to help the moon return to the sky. A beautiful, dreamy, magical story reminiscent of Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak. (Recommended ages 4 to 6 years)

Picture Book Selection: Morris Micklewhite and the Tangerine Dress

Morris has a great imagination. He paints amazing pictures and he loves his classroom's dress-up center, especially the tangerine dress. It reminds him of tigers, the sun, and his mother's hair. The other children don't understand and tease Morris. But, inspired by a dream, Morris paints a fantastic picture, and when he takes it to school and shares it with his classmates everything begins to change for the better. Recommended for grades PreK - 3rd.

We've got a brand new copy of Battle Bunny by Jon Scieszka and Mac Barnett to give away!

Have you ever wished you could change the words in a book? Add a plot twist? Get rid of a character? Jazz things up?

Battle Bunny

 That is exactly what Birthday Bunny Alex decides to do when “Gran-Gran” gifts him a gentle storybook about a sweet bunny who worries that his friends have forgotten his birthday. Alex turns his new Birthday Bunny book into “Battle Bunny” by erasing, crossing out, and adding new dialog, description, characters and drawings right into the book. 

This hilarious, and very creative, book will interest even your most reluctant reader. Recommended for children ages 5-9 (or 10 or 11 or 87, according to Alex).  

Drawing will take place on February 12th, 2014.  We will contact the winner that day.  Winner must be able to pick up this book at the Tremont location of the Upper Arlington Public Library 2800 Tremont Rd. Upper Arlington, OH  43221; we cannot deliver or mail this item.

Picture Book Selection: Love is My Favorite Thing

Plum, a lively dog, loves everything.  She loves wind, treats, Sam and Gracie, Emma and Rupert, and in fact, she loves everything but rain!  But, what she loves most is being loved.  In her efforts to do things she loves, she sometimes does things she shouldn't.  Several incidents end up with a scolding and Plum feeling really bad. The illustration of Plum, on the page where she truly wonders whether she will be loved again, is truly heartwarming.  This is a fun, heartwarming picture book that just begs to be shared.  Recommended for grades Prek-3.

“Run, run as fast as you can. You can't catch me, I'm the Gingerbread Man!” I recently read a variation of the classic Gingerbread Man tale, but this Gingerbread Man was loose in the library! I thought it might be fun to read some other variations, so here are some you might want to try.
