October Recommendations for Kids


TIM, Defender of the Earth by Sam Enthoven - TIM (or Tyrannosaur Improved Model) is the product of a super top secret lab and is doing just fine in the lab under London where he lives. Life was nice in his lab until suddenly humanity is threatened by the evil, oh and demented Professor Mallahide and his horde of vicious nano-bots. It is up to TIM to team up with the fourteen year old Chris and his classmate Anna (who just happens to be the daughter of the mad professor!) to stop this disaster. Who will win in this titanic battle; Professor Mallahide, or TIM, Defender of the Earth!?!

What Will Fat Cat Sit On? by Jan Thomas - Everyone is wondering what will Fat Cat sit on? Will he sit on the horse or the cow or maybe the pig? Each time the question is asked another animal might be sat on by Fat Cat! In the end Fat Cat does sit down, but soon another question about Fat Cat leads to more panic! This book has simple but incredibly fun drawings that kids can easily relate to and enjoy. Perfect to be read out loud to children or just one on one.

Warriors: Cats of the Clans by Erin Hunter - The famed Warriors books are incredibly popular and with this companion book fans will have even more fun! This book depicts all the different clans from the Warriors series, giving details and information on the various clans and their members. Learn about Firestar of the Thunder Clan, or Onestar of the Wind Clan. The descriptions are told in a story manner as if you are hearing about them from a storyteller. This book is sure to be popular, be sure to request a copy today!


Those Amazing Musical Instruments! by Genevieve Helsby - There are so many instruments out there and each of them makes their own unique sound. This book takes the reader on a guided tour of an orchestra by each section. Pick up this book and learn about the wonders of a harp and a mandolin in the strings section, or the tuba and a saxophone in the brass section. Accompanying the book is a fantastic CD containing samples of all the instruments in use. If you are a lover of instruments, or just want to learn more about them, check out this book and take part in a musical experience.

Star Wars: Complete Cross-Sections by David West Reynolds - This book is actually four books in one! This volume collects all the cross-sections from the amazing vehicles of all six Star Wars Films! Ever wonder how an X-Wing works, or see the insides of a Naboo Fighter? The book is filled with detailed pictures of these fantastic vehicles and great information about how they work. This is a must read for any fan of Star Wars, young or old!
