Looking for a children's book? Check out a few of ours!

By Tony Buzzeo  and Sacheko Yoshikawa Tess has the adventure of her life, from Time Out!

When a misbehaving girl finds herself in-charge of a T-rex in the library, she discovers what all of those sayings about 'watching out,' and 'being careful' are for.

The art is colorful and playful, and the book gives a lesson without making it seem like its giving one.

The story is about the rules of the library, and about all the wonderful things that can be found there. For pre-schoolers and kindergartners.

Weezer Changes the World by David McPhail

Weezer is a dog who is struck by lightening and is granted the power of great intelligence. He cures diseases and works toward world peace.

When he's struck by lightening again, he's changed back into a normal dog. However, his goodness has touched others, and they vow to continue on with Weezer's good works.

By Jim Arnosky.

The biggest threat to manatees is humans. In this story, a manatee is hurt by a boat. It's saved by humans as well, who rehabilitate the manatee and take care of her and her pup until she is ready to go back in the wild.

This story teaches care and respect for the natural world, and the consequences of human actions. It can be a good conversation starter to begin teaching kids about conservation.
