Are You My Mother? for a new generation
Max the Brave - Ed Vere

Vere captures the playful innocence of both cats and children in this tale of Max the brave kitten. Preschoolers will love correcting Max as he meets various animals on his hunt for the elusive mouse. Rich with color and feeling and just enough story make this a perfect read aloud. Max will be finding his way into multiple storytimes very soon.

 

And pick up a copy of Are You My Mother? while you're at it!  Always a classic, it has found its natural companion here.  

 

Thanks to NetGalley for the ARC!

A great little book
The Good Little Book - Kyo Maclear,Marion Arbona

A story about a boy and a book he didn't think would matter to him.

 

Ever seen that moment in life when a "reluctant reader" finds that book. The one that just clicks.  That finally makes them forget how hard reading is-because it is (See: Proust & the Squid); that becomes their almost constant companion; that opens the world of possibility and exploration that other Readers have been trying to tell them about.  This is a book about that book.  But what happens when that book is lost...? 

 

Lyrically written and intricately illustrated, this book has a long and glorious future in many a library collection and bedside table.  The joy of reading has never felt so uplifting.  Also a subtle lesson in book care.  Book jackets unite!
