April Recommendations for Kids


11 Birthdays by Wendy Mass - Amanda and Leo were born on the same day and have always celebrated their parties together and have been the best of friends—until their 10th birthday. Now, a year later they are stuck having their 11th birthday parties separately. They become stuck repeating their birthday over and over, and begin to experiment by making different choices hoping to escape the time trap.

Dinosaur vs. Bedtime by Bob Shea - A small, fierce, red dinosaur takes on the world, fighting against a big pile of leaves (ROAR! ROAR! ROAR!), a plate of spaghetti ("ROAR! CHOMP! CHOMP! ROAR! ROAR!"), or bath time and tooth brushing (ROAR! ROAR! ROAR!). The result of each battle is the proud announcement, “Dinosaur wins!” but what happens when Dinosaur faces the biggest challenge of all, bedtime? A delightful bedtime story for all dino-lovers.

What REALLY Happened to Humpty? by Jeanie Ransom - When Humpty Dumpty fell off of the Wall, everyone said it was an accident, but Joe Dumpty, a hard-boiled detective and Humpty's brother has his suspicions. Can he crack the case? An amusing romp through Mother Goose begs to be shared.


Who’s Haunting the White House by Jeff Belanger - Mary Todd Lincoln was the first person to see a ghost in the White House. Read about other spooky sightings in our country's most famous house.

Aesop’s Fables Retold by
John Cech - Classic fables with fresh, new illustrations. Be reminded why the reward for hard work is a treasure we can all find by reading the fable of “The Farmer & His Sons”
