Two Nests

Two Nests

Two birds build a nest together and hatch a baby bird, but when they fail to get along the father bird moves to a new nest, and though baby bird is unhappy at first, when he learns to fly from nest to nest he sees that the situation isn't that bad.

There are so few good books on divorce that are not didactic and can be used with very young children.    Two Nests is at once both light-hearted and honest.  Two little birds fall in love, build a nest and hatch an egg.   “But the birds were large, and the nest was small” and it is decided that another nest is needed.  Everyone is sad when Daddy moves to the other side of the tree.  Baby Bird now has two homes and when she grows wings, everyone celebrates.

Andrew Drew & Drew

Andrew Drew & Drew

If you love to draw, if you love to imagine, you will love Andrew. Follow him has he doodles his way through the flaps and folds of this unusual book.

Any young person will love this picture book about Andrew and his love of drawing. Most preschoolers love to draw and in this story titled Andrew Drew and Drew the book unfolds before their eyes with Andrews’s drawings. He takes a blank paper and turns it into something fabulous. Stairs become dinosaur; a simple line becomes a kite and then a spacecraft. Children will learn that their doddles can turn into something magical. Barney Saltzberg author and illustrator do a fantastic job of capturing their minds.

Please Papa

Please Papa

Alice learns the importance of saying "please" as well as that this magical word will not lead to everything she wants.

Please, Papa by Kate Banks, illustrated by Gabi Swiatokowska and Wait! Wait! By Hatsue Nakawaki , illustrated by Komako Sakai are two charming new picture books that celebrate imaginative play and playful interactions between young children and parents. Please , Papa even gently encourages good manners.

Wait WaitBoth books have large text, and simple, evocative language that invites the most important feature of read aloud time – conversation about the stories. Children and adults will certainly want to talk about the slightly surreal, stylized illustrations in Please, Papa. The images of the little Alice and her parents look like paper dolls cut out from a turn of the century prints and on one page a small dog, a bat on what might be an owl, hang upside down from the top of the page. Alice is pretending to have a farm and is reminded to say “please” as she requests various animals. When Papa is tired of being her horse, a frowning Alice is convinced to give her horse a rest when he in turn, uses the magic word please.

Wait! Wait! follows a small child as he encounters various neighborhood animals on the sidewalk – a butterfly, a lizard, pigeons, cats – they all fly, wiggle or leap away. But when he is scooped up and placed on his father’s shoulders, the exploration of the park continues. “Here we go!”

What Is Part This, Part That?

What Is Part This Part That?

Song-like rhyming text invites readers to guess what different components add up to. For example, a secret's part whisper, part keeping mum, and a certain kind of fruit is part peach and part plum (a nectarine).

A book that combines rhyme with reason, shapes with colors, and with great word play? That is hard to find. This picture book also has surprise fold-out parts! The description in the inner cover describes it this way: “Just like dancing is part step and part swing, when you put parts together you get a new thing!” This book also offers plenty of opportunities for an interactive storytime.

My First Day – Staff Recommend

My First Day

Explore some of the fascinating things that animals do on their first day.

Human babies can’t do much on the first day they’re born. Can animal babies do more? This book talks about many different animals on their first day. The baby capybara swims and dives on his first day. The baby polar bear curls up in a snow den with his mother. The baby sifaka rides piggyback. This is a wonderful description of what baby animals do to survive their first day. It also has extra information in the back about each animal in the book.
