Tease Monster, a friend or a foe? That’s what “One of a Kind” has to figure out in this quirky tale that teaches young readers the difference between nice teasing and mean teasing. One-of-a-Kind is truly unique. Made up of multiple colors, One has big feet and loves eating popsicles while standing upside down. But when Purple laughs at One for being weird and Green playfully calls One a “klutz” after tripping on the stairs, One feels rotten and vows never to go back to school. For ages 4-8.

What To Do With An Idea, is a story for anyone, at any age, who’s ever had an idea that seemed a little too big, too odd, too difficult. It’s a story to inspire you to welcome that idea, to give it some space to grow, and to see what happens next. Because your idea isn’t going anywhere. In fact, it’s just getting started. “One day I had an idea. ‘Where did it come from?’ “Why is it here?’ From that first puzzled inkling, the little boy realizes that the idea was following him like a small egg waiting to be hatched. Finally, it does. Kobi Yamada’s What Do You Do With an Idea?, touchingly illustrated by Mae Besom, reminds us what we do with an idea: You change the world. For ages 4-8.

Peanut Butter and Cupcake, written by Terry Border Is one of the year’s most wonderfully oddball books. A piece of bread spread thick with peanut butter searches fruitlessly for a friend to play soccer with—until he finally meets his other half (you can probably guess where this is going). The silly rhyming wordplay is great fun, and the story of finally finding a friend who completes you is heart-warming. What sets this book apart are the pictures, which blend real food (enhanced with spindly paperclip arms and legs) with watercolor backgrounds into unique, low-fi works of art. It takes a warped, wonderful mind to imagine a hamburger taking two hot dogs for a walk, and a mad genius to illustrate it. Terry Border is both.

For ages 3-5.



How Full Is Your Bucket, is the story of a little boy named Felix, this charming book explains to children how being kind not only helps others, it helps them, too. As he goes about his day, Felix interacts with different people — his sister Anna, his grandfather, other family and friends. Some people are happy, but others are grumpy or sad. Using the metaphor of a bucket and dipper, Felix’ grandfather explains why the happy people make Felix feel good, while the others leave him feeling bad — and how Felix himself is affecting others, whether he means to or not. This beautifully illustrated adaptation takes the original book’s powerful message — that the way we relate to others has a profound effect on every aspect of our lives — and tailors it to a child’s unique needs and level of understanding. Ages 3-5
