If you've been into our children's section recently, you've noticed the array of wonderful illustrated books we have, many of them signed. We've entered a golden age of children's books, and here are some recommended titles from our current stock.
A Child's First Book Club
One of the best gifts you can give a child is a subscription to our monthly book club. Even adults are beginning to join this club for themselves. Each month you (or a child, of course) will receive a new signed picture book. Cost is the price of the book, charged each month, plus shipping. Parents love the renewed enthusiasm their kids have for books, and kids love the selections, as well as the personal pen-pal letter that comes with each package.
The Day the Crayons Came Home by Drew Daywalt and Oliver Jeffers
Kids love the sassy crayons that have been lost, stepped on, or otherwise abandoned by Duncan, the recipient of the hilarious letters in this follow-up to The Day the Crayons Quit.
Lizard from the Park by Mark Pett
One of our favorite illustrators tells the story of a kid who finds a mysterious egg in the park. He takes it home, waits for it to hatch, and discovers a tremendous surprise inside. Signed!
Last Stop on Market Street by Matt De La Peña and Christian Robinson
An inner city boy and his grandmother wander through the neighborhood on errands as she opens his eyes to the beauty of the world. This one reminds us of the great Ezra Jack Keats (Snowy Day).
Lenny & Lucy by Philip C. Stead & Erin E. Stead
A boy and his dog, anxious about moving to a strange new house, build themselves a new friend, Lenny, and then decide Lenny needs a friend, and so they build Lucy. Sweetly melancholic, like the best classic children's books. Signed!
Sidewalk Flowers by JonArno Lawson and Sydney Smith
One of the year's most acclaimed picture books, this intensely heartfelt, wordless story about tiny acts of kindness is a book that adults love as much as kids. Signed!
