New Picture Books!

new books

A book with no pictures?? Who would want to read a picture book with no pictures?! You might be surprised, sometimes words are just as funny 🙂

Flora and the Penguin is a sweet story about an unexpected friendship. And unlike The Book With No Pictures this book’s got no words!

Scaredy Squirrel Makes a Friend……well, we all know and love Scaredy Squirrel

Lastly in Take Away the A, what happens when we take away just one letter? Dice become ice, plants wear pants and the chair has hair! Very funny pictures for a very funny alphabet book.

Come take a look!
