Floyd's kite is stuck in a tree and he's determined to free it. However it remains elusive as he throws the most incongruous items to do his bidding, and they, too, become stuck. An absurdly funny story deftly handled--a book worth rescuing from any tree. ~ Reviewed by Jessica Wood

The House that Max Built

The other day I opened my email account at work. The amount of mail included some spam messages; some work related ones and a note from a friend and author, Karen Beil. This particular note was to tell me that she was going to make a quick stop at the bookstore to say “Hello”, sign books and shop. Almost before I could send a reply, she was here!

One of the benefits of working at the bookstore is you get to meet some amazing people. One such person is Karen. When the book, Jack’s House, came out a few years ago, she came for an official signing. I had been delighted by her other work and this was one salesclerk who could not wait to finally meet her. We talked and laughed like long lost friends; just like the words she penned. (READ MORE)

Books to Share with your Older Sibling

A few months ago I was putting together books for a new baby gift. Two weeks ago, the little tike entered this crazy world. In his thank you note, he informed me that he was looking forward to reading all of his new books. And, being the generous little guy that he is, he had already let his big sister read them, too.

First on the list is Caps for Sale by Esphyr Slobodkina. Which you might think is an odd choice for a baby, but clever Cousin Jae knows what she is doing (most of the time). I know that this book will be devoured on many levels (least of being the eyes; most being the mouth). So the board book has been added to his shelves. We all know the story of cheeky monkeys and their affection for a particular sellers hats, but in this easy to access edition will allow you to read to your youngster and he/she can hold it themselves without causing their own particular monkey business to come to the book.  This book is a great way to share this classic and since it will be a favorite for years to come you can grow with the needs of the child by adding the paperback and hardcover formats as they grow. Follow up with Circus Caps for Sale. (READ MORE)
