Little Elliot, Big City by Mike Curato. This one is a sweet tale of being little in a giant world, and is special friend Mike Curato's first book! A super, duper favorite of Arlo's! “Amid the hustle and bustle of the big city, the big crowds and bigger buildings, Little Elliot leads a quiet life. In spite of the challenges he faces, Elliot finds many wonderful things to enjoy—like cupcakes! And when his problems seem insurmountable, Elliot discovers something even sweeter—a friend.”
Hug Machine by Scott Campbell. Another lovey, dovey one. This story is about a boy who just has to hug everything–fire hyrdants, benches, trees! Spreading the love! No one escapes the hug machine.
Frances Dean Who Loves to Dance and Dance by Birgitta Sif. A special tale about sharing your amazing talents and overcoming shyness. We love Birgitta Sif! “Frances Dean loves to dance. She feels the wind and she dances. She hears singing birds and she dances. In her every waking moment, she is inspired to move. But as soon as anyone is around, Frances Dean’s knees begin to tremble, butterflies start to flutter in her tummy, and she forgets how to dance. Will she ever find the courage to share her talent with others and feel free?”
The Smallest Girl in the Smallest Grade by Justin Roberts, illustrated by our own Christian Robinson! Oh, how we love his work! This one has a wonderful message, about standing up for what's right–Love!–even when you feel very small.
Bonus points in Arlo's Book Club: sharing these stories with a special friend. We ♥ you all!
