5 Must Read Kid Books in 2016



Snappsy the Alligator Did Not Ask to Be in This BookSnappsy the Alligator Did Not Ask to Be In This Book
by Julie Falatko
illustrated by Tim Miller

Oh, you are already aware that I want to read Snappsy based on my eleven-ty million posts about it?!  Well, good! Then you won't forget to buy a copy, right?!  Julie and Tim are both fabulous people who also happened to be amazingly talented.  I have so enjoyed watching this book come to life.


Red by Liesl ShurtliffRed
by Liesl Shurtliff
published by Knopf Books for Young Readers

I have loved Liesl's previous books, Rump and Jack, both fairy tale retellings for middle grade readers.  I will never forget how kind and patient she was when our Bluebonnet Book Club skyped with her--pretty sure all of those young ladies are fans for life.




Too Many Carrots
Too Many Carrots
by Katie Hudson

Rabbit has been hoarding carrots at his house...and now there's no room for him to live!  He moves in with friends and hilarity ensues. I absolutely love the illustrations in this one...so fun. Perfect for gifting in the spring, too!

The Terrible Two Get Worse





The Terrible Two Get Worse
by Mac Barnett & Jory John

Just when you think the Terrible Two can't get worse, they do!  "Terrible Two" always cracks me up because when I think about Mac Barnett and Jory John it's more like the Terrific Two or maybe the Dapper Mischievous Hilarious Talented Two. Alliteration limits me, people. Don't miss this book...I find myself in love with anything these two come up with!



Little Red
Little Red
by Bethan Woollvin
published by Peachtree Publishers

Little Red is headed to Grandma's when she sees a wolf!!  That might scare some little girls, but not Little Red! This cover alone makes me want to dive in!  Can't wait to get my hands on this one!
