Don’t miss out on this year’s well-deserved Newbery Medal winner.  Your life in not complete until you’ve met Ulysses, the flying, typing, poetry-writing squirrel. This book has just the right balance of sweetness, humor, action sequences and oddball characters to appeal to loads of young readers.

Gorgeous scratchboard art to swoon over from the author/illustrator of the classic Corduroy.  Earl’s mom thinks he’s been spoiled by a little girl who feeds him acorns each day.  It’s time he set out and find some grub on his own!  But will he know how to get his paws on some?


One of my all time favorites and a perfect read-aloud.

It started out as a bad day for little yellow bird, little white dog, little orange fox, and little brown squirrel. Until . . .

A wonderful, uplifting story that gently teaches young children how to deal with life’s small disappointments.
