This is a fun and engaging read
about a dog (Arlo) that is having a problem with his sight. Arlo’s owner takes
him to get glasses and he has to search for just the right pair! Children and
adults will get a kick out of the pop ups, and it sends a positive message to
kids about wearing glasses. (Ages 3+) --Reviewed by Melanie of Books Inc. Berkeley

This is one gorgeous picture book.From the endpapers, which look like natural
fibers and leaves have been pressed into them (a motif which is echoed in the
backgrounds of the illustrations), to the fully saturated coloring of the
protagonist bird hoarder, More delivers everything a picture book
should.It tells the tale of a bird who
lets his collection of salvaged treasures (some might call it “junk”) get out
of control and then pares it back down with the help of a concerned mouse

A story so sweet I was tearing up at the end of it.
A loving tale about a little bear who builds a boat, but as he gets bigger can
no longer fit in it. He passes it along to another little bear and tells him to
do the asme as he grows. This board book is perfect for the customer looking for
stories with siblings in them. The illustrations being so simple also don't take
away from the moral of the story. This book is one of my favorites to show
To say that I enjoyed this book is an understatement.
Enamored with it, is more like it. We’ve all read books with a love story; many
of them can be great, inspirational even, but few are quite literally magical. The Night Circus centers around two young magicians, Celia and
Marco, who are unknowingly in a competition with one another; their venue is a
traveling circus that seems to appear in towns out of thin air, whose doors
only open at night. This debut author packs the book full of eloquent scenes.
Scenes that not only kept me enthralled with the book, but also had me wishing
this particular circus really did exist. So if you’re ready to be swept away by
an enchanting love story, this is definitely the book for you!
