"Baby Shark Chomp!" by Pinkfong


Kids will love pulling the tabs to make Baby Shark take big bites in this sliding board book inspired by the Baby Shark global YouTube phenomenon with over 4 billion views!



"Underwear!" by Jenn Harney


Bare bear! Stop right there! Underwear! Under where? So begins the dialogue between a tired bear dad and a rambunctious bear cub who would rather play with his tighty whities than get into bed. Underwear makes great hair. It can even turn one into a superbear, or a goggle-wearing swimming bear. But beware of a big scare!



We also have Easy Readers available to check out!


"Facts vs. Opinions vs. Robots" by Michael Rex


Do you know the difference between a fact and an opinion? It can be a hard thing to understand. Some things are facts like the number of robots in this book. Other things are opinions like which robot would make the best friend, or which robot dances best. And sometimes to tell the difference between a fact and an opinion, you need to wait to get more information that's because facts can be proven true or false, and opinions are things you feel and believe but that you can't prove.


Mike Rex introduces young readers to the very important distinction between facts and opinions, and he reminds us that it is nice to listen to one another's opinions, and to stand up for the facts!


"Catch That Chicken!" by Angela Brooksbank


Lami is the best chicken catcher in the whole village. Her sister may be speedy at spelling, her friend fast at braiding hair, and her brother brave with bulls, but when it comes to chickens, nobody is faster or braver than Lami. That is, until the day when Lami chases a little too fast, up the baobab tree, and reaches a little too far . . . ow! How can she catch chickens with an ankle that's puffed up like an angry lizard? Could it be, as Nana Nadia says, that quick thinking is more important than quick running? Award-winning author Atinuke celebrates Nigerian village life in a story vibrantly illustrated by Angela Brooksbank with a universal message at its heart.


"Nesting" by Henry Cole


Award-winning author-illustrator Henry Cole soars to new heights in this stunning picture book about robins: their homes, their lives, and their families.


In this black-and-white picture book highlighted with robin's egg blue, the reader will follow two robins as they build a nest with twigs and grass. Then mother robin lays four beautiful blue eggs and will keep the eggs warm in the nest until they hatch into four baby robins. The father robin protects the babies until they can fly on their own. The perils the babies encounter are many, including snakes and storms. The nest is always their safe place.


Nesting provides introductory biology and animal science concepts for very young children, and also makes a spectacular springtime gift.


"There's a Dragon in my Closet" by Dorothea Taylor


In this funny and imaginative salute to mischievous little kids, a young boy blames mishaps on the dragon in the closet only he can see.


The dragon in the closet can be a bit fickle. One minute he’s dancing like a goof and being sweet to the little ones, and the next he’s sneaking treats out of the cookie jar and leaving dirty footprints on the carpet. The worst part is that after the dragon causes heaps of trouble, he goes invisible and leaves a little boy to answer for all his bad behavior…But did the dragon really do it?


"Mulan" by Disney


With narration from Grandmother Fa, original character voices, and sound effects from the award-winning film, Mulan, this thrilling read-along brings all the action to life. To save her father from death in the army, Mulan secretly goes in his place and becomes one of China's greatest heroines in the process. Readers can turn the pages at the sound of the chime and follow along with the word-for-word narration on the CD as the adventure begins!


"Soaked! by Abi Cushman


A Hula-Hooping moose, a badger with a bumblebee umbrella, a rabbit in a cashmere sweater, and a very wet bear star in this unpredictable and laugh-out-loud picture book in which having fun gets the best of a grumpy bear.


It looks like a wet and dreary day for Bear and his trio of friends. How could he possibly have fun when he is soaked? But Badger, Rabbit, and Moose don't seem to mind. In fact, Moose can still hula hoop! And it looks like so much fun. Might Bear like to try?


Here is a story that shows that fun is not dependent on sunshine and blue skies. In fact, it might be more fun to be soaked!
