One of the best things about books, is that there are always new ones being released.  I am always impressed by the infinite amount of creativity that exists among the minds of children’s book writers.  The storylines and messages that exist within the pages of a children’s book are inspiring, incredibly clever, and have a special ability of touching our hearts in such a unique way.  Here are my personal picks for fun new releases to check out:

Cupcake, by Cherise Mericle Harper – Proves that being vanilla isn’t all that bad, especially when a colorful birthday candle enters the picture.  AGES 4-8.


Sweet Dreams Lullaby, by Betsy E. Snyder  – A peaceful, imaginative picture book invites your child to dream of comforting scenes from nature.  Rhyming text paired with dream-like illustrations make the perfect bedtime book.  AGES 2-4.


Lawn to Lawn, by Dan Yaccarino – Yard ornaments come alive and chase after the family that left them behind, proving that home is where the heart is.  AGES 9-12.


Amelia Bedelia’s First Valentine, by Herman Parish – Amelia Bedelia celebrates her very first Valentine’s Day, and she’s sure she’s going to love everything about it.  AGES 4-8.

Kisses, by Barney Saltzberg – Textures, flaps, pull tabs, a squeaky surprise, and loads of kisses will introduce little ones to the alphabet, animals, counting, parts of the body, and times of day.  AGES 2-4.


The Purple Kangaroo, by Michael Ian Black & Peter Brown – What will you think of when a monkey tries to read your mind?  Perhaps a purple kangaroo? AGES 4-8.


Walt Disney’s Alice in Wonderland, by RH Disney – Based on Walt Disney’s animated classic, this vintage Little Golden Book from 1951 retells the story of Alice’s wild adventures in Wonderland.  AGES 2-5.


A Very Big Bunny, by Marisabina Russo – Amelia is a very big bunny who experiences the ups and downs of standing out in a crowd.  Here is a perfect book for every little bunny who worries about fitting in.  AGES 4-8.
