we are loving the feedback we are getting from you on facebook about your favorite first reads. we are excited to announce that based on your recommendations, we will be adding the following titles from sandra boynton: the going to bed book, opposites, and barnyard dance (a favorite of jennifers and my daughter matilda as well!). did you know that sandra is releasing a new book? happy hippo, angry duck is coming out this spring.

we were happy to hear that honora’s family loves harold and the purple crayon and good night moon as much as we do. we keep these books on stock at the shop. we also love the sweet story of the carrot seed by ruth crauss, illustrated by crocket johnson who also wrote harold and the purple crayon.

stephanie recommended tiki tiki tembo, an eastern folk tale, which you can check out here.

keep the suggestions coming!
