Monday, February 1, 2010

February Recommendations for Kids


Never Ask a Bear by Louise Bonnett-Rampersaud - Ten rules you will want to know before asking a rambunctious bear over to play.

Goldilocks by Ruth Sanderson - A fresh, heartwarming rendition of the story of a curious girl who visits her furry neighbors, and ends up with blueberry muffins.

Waiting for Winter by Sebastian Meschenmoser - Deer, squirrel, hedgehog, and bear are waiting and waiting for winter and the first snowfall. Hedgehog finds something white and wet and cold—but it looks suspiciously like a toothbrush, and a sky full of toothbrushes is not quite right!

Skulduggery Pleasant by Derek Landy - Stephanie is just 12 years old when her eccentric uncle Gordon dies and leaves her everything. This is a bit of a surprise for Stephanie, and about to get stranger, when a mysterious skeleton-detective, Skulduggery Pleasant, enters into her life telling her that her uncle was actually murdered, and introduces a world of magic and intrigue which she never knew existed. Before long she is caught up in a magical, crazy adventure to save the world from an evil sorcerer who is trying to capture the Scepter of the Ancients and rule the world. Don’t let the “J” rating on this book fool you, it’s a sharp and intelligent book, propelled by quick dialog and great characters. Don’t miss this incredible beginning to the great “Skulduggery Pleasant” Series.


You Wouldn’t Want to Be a Skyscraper Builder: A Hazardous Job You’d Rather Not Take by John Malam - Peppered by amusing illustrations, a description of building the Empire State Building during the Great Depression.

Julie Andrews’ Collection of Poems, Songs, and Lullabies by Julie Andrews - Julie Andrews and her daughter have selected nearly 150 poems, lullabies, and songs into this rich and handsomely illustrated volume. The book includes a cd containing twenty one poems read aloud by Julie Andrews and her daughter, Emma Walton Hamilton.
