Willow the Armadillo longs to be a hero. A hero in her very own book. She takes classes.

She bravely auditions, but Willow is told, “Not what we’re looking for. Next!”.  Willow keeps trying but finds rejection at every turn. Eventually, on the verge of giving up for good, Willow is able to use her own resources to come to a happy resolution.

Every child (and adult) will be able to relate to this fun story and ode to childhood imagination. 

A World of Opposites book review.

A World of Opposites by Gray Malin

New York Times bestselling author and photographer Gray Malin shared his beautiful photography in this fun and modern book of opposites. I really enjoy this book because of the striking photography.

This is not your average opposites book.

One of my kids, however, pointed out that “feathers” and “fur” are probably not technically opposites. While I agree, it is still a great book with beautiful photos. 

This Way Charlie book review.

This Way, Charlie: Inspired by a Real Animal Friendship by Caron Levis and Charles Santoso

This is a beautiful story of an animal friendship that is based on a true story. Charlie the horse and Jack the goat got off to a bumpy start.

This Way Charlie book review.

Charlie was blind in one eye and Jack was grumpy and didn’t like meeting new animals. Over time, their bond grew and Jack began leading Charlie around the ranch…and eventually saves his life.

A wonderful book for any child who struggles with friendships, shyness, or disability. This is also a great read for a child who loves farms and animals. The illustrations are beautiful and your child will love pouring over them.

    Home in the Woods by Eliza Wheeler is a great new picture book. And we really enjoyed both Balderdash! by Michelle Markel and Life by Cynthia Rylant. The last two are a couple of years old. All have beautiful pictures, and the first two are true stories.
