New Books!

Dinosaur is going to one of his favorite places: the library! On the way, he encounters a series of animals--a cow, some baby chicks, a lonesome turtle, a sad owl--and shares his roars with each. When he reaches his final destination, he faces his biggest challenge yet: Storytime! Library wins! Well, okay, they both win when Dinosaur settles down to listen with his animals friends. 
Awesome Man can shoot positronic rays out of his eyeballs, fly as straight as an arrow, and hug mutant Jell-O! Even villains like Professor Von Evil and the Flaming Eyeball are no match for this caped crusader. But Awesome Man also has a secret. . . . Can you guess what it is? The first picture book from Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Michael Chabon perfectly captures the fantasy life of young superhero fans. 

There is one page in particular that made me fall in love with this book. It is just Awesome Man on the page and the text below reads "I'm just basically awesome". I want that emblazoned on a t-shirt. 

Look out, Richard Scarry! There's a new busy word book in town—and Ugly has never looked better! The wildly popular Uglydoll characters are sharing their bright and colorful Uglyverse down to the tiniest detail. Featuring over 563 labeled wacky and regular words, readers will have a blast with lots and lots to search for, point to, and wonder about.
What dat? Dat, folks, is a whole wide world of Ugly fun!
I know we're suppose to teach children proper English and all, but this book was cute + fun. It is basically like any word book, but with the awesome Ugly Dolls thrown in, so it's awesome.
