Feathers Together

Feathers Together by Caron Levis, illustrated by Charles Santoso (ages 4-8)

An inseparable pair of storks, Klepetan and Malena, are spending the summer in Croatia when Malena injures her wing and can no longer make the annual flight to South Africa. A human relocates their nest and commits to looking after her. Klepetan vows not to leave Malena, but she tells him he must.   



Forgettery by Rachel Ip, illustrated by Laura Hughes (ages 3-5)  

In this sweet and heartwarming story, Amelia and Granny discover The Forgettery, a place where forgotten memories go. Filled with delightful illustrations, this gentle story introduces readers to the topics of memory loss and dementia.  


How Old is Mr Tortoise

How Old is Mr. Tortoise? by Dev Petty, illustrated by Ruth Chan (ages 6-8)

Told in graphic novel-style illustrations, this laugh out loud birthday story is about how Mr. Tortoise and his friends figure out how old he is. A story that teaches problem-solving skills, the importance of teamwork, and celebrates friendship.  


The Three Billy Goats Gruff

The Three Billy Goats Gruff  by Mac Barnett, illustrated by Jon Klassen (ages 4-8)

A more or less faithful retelling of the folklore classic, with a few aesthetic flourishes. The goats vary on a wider range of scale, and the Troll in addition to being an accomplished chef and gourmand, is also an aspiring poet.  


Zero Zebras

Zero Zebras: A Counting Book about What's Not There by Bruce Goldstone, illustrated by Julian Chung (ages 6-8)  

Counting is fun, but what's more fun is counting things that aren't there. A simple rhyming story that teaches the concept of zero and provides an entertaining perspective. A reminder that what's not there is equally as important as what is present. Check out more kids' books about math and problem-solving.
