October Kids Picks

We rounded up some more kids books that we loved (and you will too!):

The Very Cranky Bear 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.

Tooth Fairy Wars 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 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 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.

Silly Sally Silly Sally
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 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
