The Recess Queen
by Alexis O'Neill
"I loved this book and read it a million times to my grandson when he was little. It's a terrific story about bullying, told in a fun, entertaining way.
It's perfect for October, National Bullying Prevention Month, but should be mandatory reading all year round.
by Jen Malia
The is a story about a little girl with autism who doesn't like to touch anything sticky. With the help of her teachers and friends, she gets the courage to try something new. Jen wrote this from an #Ownvoices perspective. I highly recommend this book.
What I Like About Me
by Allia Zobel Nolan
A great book about how we all might look different, but we are all the same inside. A perfect read for the current situation of our world.
Frog and Toad
by Arnold Lobel
I can't say enough about this book. It was my one of my favorites as a kid. And I still own my copy from back then-years and years before the Internet. I read it to my daughter and then my grandkids. It's one of the best books about friendship ever written.
The Story of Babar
by Jean De Brunhoff
I have to say this is my all time favorite book. As I child, I read it until it was dogeared. The of story of how Babar survives the death of his mother and makes a life for himself has stayed with me my entire life. The Old Lady, Celeste and Arthur have been by my side forever! A must read for every new generations of children.
Janie Emaus's debut children's book brilliantly blends Christmas and Hannukah together for a newly blended family.
