Who doesn't want to be a ninja, or a cowboy, or a brave knight in shining armor? Nothing gets those guys down, right? But wait -- just because you have super strength doesn't mean you never get scared. Or disappointed, or lonely . . . just like us non-superheroes. Read this and you'll see that when you mix sweet with tough, you get a fantastic book. -Emmy
This book was hilarious, which is how I like most of my kid's books. When Magnolia brings the most exciting thing she can think of for show and tell, she ends up getting more than she asked for. Magnolia can't just bring in sticks or shiny rocks to class, she wants to bring in an alligator, because what could be better than that? Pretty soon though, she starts to find out why no one else would want to bring one in. If you’re looking for that book that's fun to read out loud, this is it. -Jess
Want to get your kiddo into the world of Hamilton without exposing them to the adult language of the Broadway cast recording? Look no further than AARON AND ALEXANDER. This book gives a history of both the men’s lives and the incident that lead to the now famous duel, as well as the aftermath of said duel. Perfect for an elementary school history lesson or just for an entertaining and historical read, AARON AND ALEXANDER is already one of my favorite books this year! -Heather H.
Anyone who loves Press Here will enjoy this book too. It's absolutely brilliant. I like that it encourages the kids to really look at the world around them. I used LOOK! around my apartment with my cats and was amazed at how the book applied in every situation. Kids will have fun using this book around the house, outside, and even on road trips! -Brandi
Wow! There is so much to see in this gorgeous little book. My toddler and I can spend half an hour pointing things out, making animal noises, learning new words to go with the pictures, and giggling all the while. We can read the text or make up our own fun stories for each letter. You'll definitely want to share this smart little book with every small child you know. It makes a great gift for a baby shower or first birthday too! -Heather W.

Are you looking for the perfect way to get your youngster introduced to the realm of Star Wars? Look no further than STAR WARS EPIC YARNS. Jack and Holman Wang have managed to encapsulate the saga into thirty words over three books, starting with A NEW HOPE. The figures and sets are entirely crafted by Jack and Holman themselves and have exceptional detail. There's even a local connection; the cover for A NEW HOPE was photographed right here in Arizona in the Tucson desert. Check out the entire series! -Heather H.
Grownups aren't always perfect, and kids know it. In this picture book of opposites, a group of rainbow-colored munchkins judge whether their mommies are always polished, patient, and unflaggingly enthusiastic -- or, you know, actual human parents. Kids will delight in shouting out the less-than-flattering choice with every page turn. Marla Frazee's artwork has a lively, finger-painted quality that's the perfect fit for this great read-aloud book. -Emmy
This book is anything but the most terrible terrible. The story of Adam and his koala, who is simply known as Koala, is adorably hilarious. Ferrell and Santoso perfectly capture the absolute nothing that koalas do all day and how to a young boy it can seem like the biggest nuisance ever. The words and illustrations are simple but captivating, and the whole story itself is heartwarming and funny. You won't regret liking Adam and Koala. In fact, you will probably want your own by the end. -Meghan

I don't know how Edgar Allan Poe would have felt had he known his work would be transformed over the years in so many remarkable ways. I bet he would have smiled at the sight of this light-hearted story (in a dark room, by himself, of course). What could possibly happen when two baby ravens are left home alone while their mother goes out? I'll give you a hint: the boy accidentally breaks something, and the girl just can't wait to tell on him. Sound familiar? When their mother comes home the truth comes out, and this funny and legitimately touching story soon gives way to a strong message of forgiveness and understanding. -Josh
A truly adorable book for anyone who's ever felt like they don't fit in. We meet a little boy and his tiny elephant as they learn what friendship really means and share that gift with others. Beautiful artwork and a heartwarming message make this a must-have for your shelf. -Mira
Never underestimate the power of your goofy pony. This book was great, and not just because it had a gassy equine in it. It was also brimming with Vikings -- and a sweater-swaddled princess. Not to mention a lesson in acceptance. When life gives you lumpy adorable glob of pony, make lemonade! Or at least utilize the cuteness instead of trying to mash it to form a “war horse.” -Chris
I think this book was written for me. I am pretty sure I have a mild to not so mild case of undiagnosed arachnophobia. I can't even look at a photo of a spider without cringing. But I safely read this entire book and can now say I actually like a spider book -- book being the keyword here. This may not have cured my spider fears, but it certainly has given me some facts to appreciate about spiders. It's funny and informative and not at all scary. Finally, a book that will appeal to everyone, no matter their phobia level. -Brandi
This beautifully drawn and clever story has a little of everything. Mr. Squirrel and his animal friends are all so adorable and funny. This story had me actually laughing out loud. Mr. Squirrel throughout the story is jumping to conclusions and picturing the worst thing possible if he doesn't get the moon back to where it belongs. It’s a perfect bedtime/anytime story. -Jess
All Bruce wanted was some fancy hard-boiled eggs, but instead he is met with an unwelcome surprise! Despite his grumpy demeanor, readers of all ages will love Bruce. The illustrations are filled with details and the story is hilarious! Mother Bruce will not disappoint! -Amanda
