Last Night

Hyewon Yum

A little girl doesn’t like her dinner and is sent to her room. She seeks comfort from her friend Bear and falls asleep. So begins a fantastic dream voyage deep into the forest, where the girl and her friend dance and play all night. And in the morning, mother and child make up.

With brilliant linocut illustrations and not a single word to break the spell, this picture book marks an impressive American debut for Hyewon Yum.

Book:I Love My New Toy!

I Love My New Toy!

Mo Willems

Mo Willems continues his best-selling Elephant and Piggie first reader series.  

The books feature two lovable and funny characters: an optimistic (and sometimes reckless) pig and a cautious, pessimistic elephant.  Children who sat on their parents’ laps to have Pigeon read to them will eagerly take the plunge with these books to start reading on their own.  Each book has been vetted by an early learning specialist.  These sweet and surprising stories are a much-needed breath of fresh air in the early reader arena.

In I Love My New Toy!, Piggie can’t wait to show Gerald her brand new toy.  But will an accidentally broken toy accidentally break a friendship?
