We rounded up some more kids books that we loved (and you will too!):
The Very Cranky Bear
by Nick Bland
Moose, Lion, Zebra, and Sheep take shelter in a cave on a cold and rainy day, only to realize that a bear is there. The bear roars loudly and says that he is trying to sleep. Not understanding why the bear is so cranky, the other animals come up with ways to cheer up the bear.
The Tooth Fairy Wars
by Kate Coombs
It’s the Tooth Fairy against Nathan, a boy who’d rather keep his tooth than get the cash, thank you very much! Nathan’s lost his first tooth! And he’s thinking he’ll hold on to it, so thanks-but-no-thanks, Tooth Fairy. This is one tooth that is staying with its owner. Except the Tooth Fairy has other ideas. And we’re not talking about some run-of-the-mill garden fairy here.
Papa’s Mechanical Fish
by Candace Fleming
Clink! Clankety-bang! Thump-whirr! That’s the sound of Papa at work. Although he is an inventor, he has never made anything that works perfectly, and that’s because he hasn’t yet found a truly fantastic idea. But when he takes his family fishing on Lake Michigan, his daughter Virena asks, “Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be a fish?”—and Papa is off to his workshop.
The Invisible String
by Patrice Karst
When Liza and Jeremy run to their mother during a scary storm, she comforts them by telling them about the Invisible String, which connects people who love each other no matter where they are and means that they are never alone.
A Treeful of Pigs
by Arnold Lobel
Delightfully illustrated story of a farmer’s wife who outwits her lazy husband.
The Book with No Pictures
by B. J. Novak
Psst–hey kids: Check this book out and make your grown-up read it to you. Trust me on this one!
by Audrey Wood
A rhyming story of Silly Sally, who makes many friends as she travels to town–backwards and upside down.
by Roald Dahl
Captured by a giant! The BFG is no ordinary bone-crunching giant. He is far too nice and jumbly. It’s lucky for Sophie that he is. Had she been carried off in the middle of the night by the Bloodbottler, the Fleshlumpeater, the Bonecruncher, or any of the other giants-rather than the BFG-she would have soon become breakfast.
Treasure Hunters: Danger Down the Nile
by James Patterson
Bick, Beck, Storm, and Tommy Kidd travel to Africa to track down priceless artifacts that will keep the family’s treasure-hunting business afloat long enough to rescue their kidnapped mother. Book #2

by Francesca Gould
