Kern County Library Staff Suggests...: November Recommendations for Kids

Monday, November 1, 2010

November Recommendations for Kids


The Boss Baby by Marla Frazee - From the moment he arrives, the new baby makes it quite clear he is the Boss. He holds lots of meetings and has a multitude of demands, and receives plenty of perks including 24/7 service and a spa. Sure to elicit giggles, especially from new parents!

Brontorina by James Howe - A dinosaur who wants to be a ballerina?! How is that possible? Where would Brontorina buy shoes? Where is a studio large enough? Bring this home for some toe-tapping fun.

Palace Beautiful by Sarah DeFord Williams - A secret attic room with the words Palace Beautiful painted above the door, and an old diary mark Sadie’s introduction to her family’s new house in Salt Lake City. As Sadie, her younger trantrum inclined 9 year old sister Zuzu, and neighbor Belladonna delve into the diary found in the hideaway, the history of the influenza epidemic of 1918 comes alive. Sadie discovers the diary’s author Helen shares some of the same fears and challenges. As the girls unravel the mystery of the author, Sadie’s tenacity and optimism will appeal to all who desire their own secret hideaway.

The Very Little Princess by Marion Dane Bauer - Zoey is exploring her grandmother’s house and discovers a perfect dollhouse with a tiny 3 ¼” princess doll who magically comes to life in her hands! Princess Regina believes Zoey is her servant and as both females deal with the absence of someone who leaves them, Regina learns to cry and becomes real. Zoey’s mother drops Zoey off at her Grandmother Hazel’s home (who Zoey had never met or heard of). Zoey’s mom leaves her with her grandmother, who loves Zoey, and Regina and Zoey become good friends.


How to Clean a Hippopotamus by Steve Jenkins - A fascinating look at animal symbiotic relationships. African helmut turtles help clean the algae from hippopotaumses, coyotes and badgers sometimes hunt together, and woodpeckers pick parasites from giraffes.
