Alphabet Boats

Samantha R. Vamos (author) Ryan O'Rourke (illustrator)

Publisher: Charlesbridge ISBN: 9781580897310

Set sail and learn the ABCs with a boat for each letter! Discover twenty-six types of vessels, from the more common -- canoe and motorboat-- to the unusual -- umiak and Q-boat. Just like in Alphabet Trucks and Alphabet Trains, colorful art includes the letters of the alphabet hidden (and not-so-hidden) in supporting roles in the illustrations. The text features familiar as well as unusual boats from around the world, packing in tons of instant kid appeal, and upper and lowercase letters are integrated into the action of the art rather than solely in the typography. Back matter includes age-appropriate facts about each featured boat.

Grandma's Tiny House

JaNay Brown-Wood (author) Priscilla Burris (illustrator)

Publisher: Charlesbridge ISBN: 9781580897129

This sweet, rhyming counting book introduces young readers to numbers one through fifteen as Grandma’s family and friends fill her tiny house on Brown Street. Neighbors, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and grandkids crowd into the house and pile it high with treats for a family feast. But when the walls begin to bulge and nobody has space enough to eat, one clever grandchild knows exactly what to do. Where there’s a will there’s a way when families grow and come together.

Everything is a Poem

J. Patrick Lewis (author) Maria Cristina Pritelli (illustrator)

Publisher: The Creative Company ISBN: 9781566604970

J. Patrick Lewis did not come under poetry’s spell until late in life—but when it struck, the former college economics professor was entranced.This collection celebrates some of his best poems for children—some silly, some serious, some historical, some invention, but all aimed to delight. The vibrant and playful illustrations of Italian artist Maria Cristina Pritelli lend a sense of vitality to the words, underscoring the idea that Everything Is a Poem.

Lazy Days of Summer

Judy Young (author), Kathy O'Malley (illustrator)

Publisher: Sleeping Bear Press ISBN: 9781627536400

From earliest times, the concept of "play" has been part of the human experience. And while some pastimes have gone in and out of favor over the years, some never change or lack for enthusiasts. Using poetry and prose, Judy Young relives many of the familiar games of childhood and invites young readers to join along as she plays Kick the Can, Monkey in the Middle, and Double Dutch jump rope. "The rope starts to turn and I jump with my feet As I sing out a song with the same rhythmic beat, Turn around, touch the ground, first jump slowly, then fast; How many more jumps do you think I will last?" Colorful artwork reinforces the underlying message of the importance of physical play in today's techno-driven world. In Lazy Days of Summer even "older" children will recall the welcome tang of lemonade after a rugged game of tag.
