For Just One Day by Laura Leuck

For just one day, I'd like to be a busy, buzzing bumble...BEE!

In this beautifully illustrated book, kids can imagine the fun of being a variety of animals from around the world. They can be a bee, a snake, a whale, a porcupine, and, on the book's final page, an attached mirror reminds little ones that the very best thing they can be is exactly who they are. It's a book to be read and reread with wonder and delight.

Tell me a Story

Eeboo's awesomely illustrated set of 36 story telling cards features 36 different and intriguing images that prompt kids (and adults!) to make up their own stories, and the results are different every time!

You can purchase a set of your very own HERE. 

"Doug Unplugged" - by Dan Yaccarino

Doug is a robot who learns everything he knows through a database his parents plug him into each day. But one day, he unplugs himself and goes on an adventure. Traveling by jetpack, he learns about pigeons, trash, and dark manholes. He plays with a human boy at the playground. And most importantly, he learns that there are things in the world you can’t learn through a computer.

The illustrations are super graphic and pop off the page. "Doug Unplugged" by Dan Yaccarino is a delight. 

Books by Hervé Tullet

We love the interactive, playful books by Hervé Tullet. Known in France as ‘The Prince of pre-school books’, Tullet takes the concept of reading to a new level, teaching young minds to think imaginatively, independently and creatively. Here are a few of our favorites:
