Hammock? Check. Glass of lemonade? Check. Stack of books? Double check! It's that time again–Arlo's Book Club Time! Arlo has some very important suggestions for your summer reading list. Whether you're hankering to learn your ABC's or have numerous birds landing on your head, we're sure you'll find something perfect for your reading palette. See below:
Gaston by Kelly DiPucchio, with illustrations by Red Cap artist, Christian Robinson. This is the adorable story of Gaston, a french bulldog puppy who stands out as different from his poodle brother and sisters–until he discovers that there may have been a mix-up when he meets a bulldog family. We love this little book, coupled with charming illustrations from a family favorite, Christian Robinson, this is a must-read!
There Is A Bird On Your Head by Mo Willems. You might know Mo Willems best for his pigeon books, but this one is about Gerald and Piggie. “Gerald is careful. Piggie is not. Piggie cannot help smiling. Gerald can. Gerald worries so that Piggie does not have to. Gerald and Piggie are best friends.” …Are you a Gerald or a Piggie? The eternal question! This one's an award winner as well–it won the 2008 Theodor Seuss Geisel Award and is a classic delight!
Number One Sam by Greg Pizzoli. “Sam was number one. He was number one in speed. He was number one at turns. Sam was always #1. Until…he wasn’t.” We love this new gem by writer and illustrator of The Watermelon Seed, Greg Pizzoli.
Adventures with Barefoot Critters, an ABC Book by Teagan White. Could these illustrations be any more lovely. Filled with whimsical woodland creatures and snuggly storylines, this one is perfect for beginning steps to reading. Definitely check out Teagan's site for more beautiful work.
