Book cover Red: A Crayon`s Story New Review
Michael Hall (2015) , under 40 pages
Audience: Preschool, Primary (k-3rd grade)
Category: Concept, Read Aloud
(This book has outstanding illustrations)


Red`s label says he`s red. But no matter how hard he tries to color strawberries, foxes, and firetrucks, they just don`t come out right. His family and friends try to help him color red through encouragement and advice, but it doesn`t help. Nothing helps until Berry asks him to color a nice blue ocean for her boat. And Red discovers that even though his label says Red, he`s really Blue! A wonderful and subtle book about being true to ourselves no matter what label we`re given.

Book cover 1 to 20, Animals Aplenty New Review
Katie Viggers (2014) , under 40 pages
Audience: Preschool, Primary (k-3rd grade)
Category: Concept, Humor, Read Aloud
(This book has outstanding illustrations)


One fox in a pair of colorful socks starts “1 to 20, Animals Aplenty” with a cheeky grin; he is quickly joined by other familiar and unusual animals who introduce themselves with quirky charm through rhyming couplets. Readers will delight in the humor of the pictures and text which subtly teaches by labeling animal groups. No matter how many times you read this book, you can number it as one of those that counts for a great time!

George can be brave all day. He climbs the biggest trees and yells at bullies. But not at night. This is a book about George conquering his fear of the dark. His father is tired of checking to make sure there`s nothing around to scare George. He must find a way to go to sleep. He can be brave for others- in this case his teddy bear and that`s how he becomes brave. The great, eye-catching illustrations delight in this short book with a big story.

Book cover Hi, Koo! New Review
Jon J. Muth (2014) , under 40 pages
Audience: Preschool, Primary (k-3rd grade)
Category: Concept, NCCBA, Poetry, Read Aloud
(This book has outstanding illustrations)


What is a haiku? Open this clever book and begin by reading the author’s note describing the poetic form known as haiku. As you continue reading, you’ll experience the four seasons in a year made up of twenty-six beautifully illustrated poems. Alongside drawings of a panda bear named Koo are poems that celebrate falling leaves, drippy icicles, crocus blossoms, and much more. While the book is an enjoyable read from cover to cover, it could also be opened to any page for a single inspiring haiku. Look carefully, and you’ll notice a capitalized word in each poem, from “Autumn” to “Zero”, making this a fun alphabet book too!
