I often struggle to choose just one kid book each month, because I have so many I want to recommend! This is why I decided to pick three very different and wonderful books for my kid book picks this month. If you need or want more recommendations, then make sure to visit our online catalog to see staff picks for kids, tweens, teens, and adults.
Where is the Green Sheep?, by Mem Fox and Judy Horacek, is my children’s book pick for March. This book was first published in 2007 and since then has received numerous awards and recognition. This is one of my favorite children’s books and it will have you laughing the entire time. This book is a fun and silly read for kids and even adults. Where is the Green Sheep? is for kids who have enjoyed Lemons are not Red, Sheep in a Jeep, Sheep in Shop, Sheep Blast off, and Farmyard Beat.
Battle Bunny by Jon Scieszka and Mae Barnett is my children’s book pick for February. This book is amazing, ridiculous, and a unique read! Illustrator Matthew Myers does an incredible job drawing two overlapping stories on each page. Battle Bunny is for kids who enjoyed Mr. Tiger Goes Wild, Mo’s Mustache, Mr. Wuffles, and Do Not Open This Book.
We were very sad to discover that the latest book in Mo Willems’ Elephant & Piggie series, The Thank You Book, is also the last. It’s an end of an era, the perfect opportunity to celebrate how Mo Willems continues to make storytime better for families all over the world.
Read why Elephant & Piggie deserve a special place on your family’s bookshelf.
Thanks to our friends at Brightly for sharing this sweet, fond farewell to one of our favorite kids series.
Who doesn’t love to look at the pictures in a book and guess what’s going on? Children almost always seem to, and for that reason wordless picture books can be a fantastic resource to help develop early literacy skills.
