Welcome to Super Powered Picture Books! In honor of our Summer Library Club theme Superheroes I will be posting a blog the second Saturday of the month in June and July that will highlight some of the picture books we have that celebrate all things SUPER POWERS!

To start us off we will look at picture books that feature Super Powered Kids! There are a lot of great picture books about kids with amazing super powers who fly through the skies, have super strength, band together with friends, face fears, and save the day in amazing ways. A couple top picks are: Do Super Heroes Have Teddy Bears? by Carmela Coyle, Superhero School by Thierry Robberecht, 10 Rules of Being a Superhero by Deb Pilutti, Ladybug Girl by Jacky Davis, Super Sam by Lori Riess, Super Princess Kitty by Antoinette Portis, Eliot Jones, Midnight Superhero by Anne Cottringer, The Amazing Adventure of Bubblebee Boy by Jacky Davis, and Supersister by Beth Cadena. For a sneak peak at Do Super Heroes Have Teddy Bears? check out the book trailer below.

 

For a list of these and other great superhero picture books see our Super Powered Picture Books list in our catalog.

And don’t forget to check back in June for a look at Super Powered Animals and Friends! And in July we will wrap things up with none other than Super Powered Parents!

The weather is changing and families are getting outside again to enjoy the new season.  Young children are just as happy and excited about getting outdoors as adults, maybe even more so because it means time at the park or a ride in the stroller.  The start of a new season is a great time to introduce the signs and symbols of that season.  Here is a list of books that celebrate spring and that are available in board book format so that even the littlest readers can enjoy them!

  • It's Spring! by Samantha Berger
  • Springtime Baby by Elise Broach
  • Wake Up! Wake Up! by Kathryn Lynn Davis
  • Welcome Spring by Nancy Davis
  • Planting a Rainbow by Lois Ehlert
  • Baby Loves Spring! by Karen Katz
  • Spring Joy by Liesbet Slegers
  • Mouse's First Spring by Lauren Thompson
  • Bear Wants More by Karma Wilson
