If you love reading aloud to your kids, you'll love this book--and so will they. We've yet to meet a kid who didn't ROFL when listening to this book.
A delightful tale that both children and adults have grabbed onto since the Marcel film caused its internet sensation last year, Marcel the Shell is created by Jenny and Dean, a couple who live in Brooklyn and have a gift for creating magical world out of the every day. Marcel is a picture book of beautifully realistic drawings of all the things curious Marcel loves. Children will relish connecting their enjoyments with Marcel and finding all the hidden objects tucked in the pages. A stellar pick for that slightly precocious urban child. - Stephanie
Bright pictures, a sweet, reassuring message, and an adorable finger puppet fill this book with reading and playtime fun. This baby board book will have your newborns attentive and curious about the story of a cute little owl in his tree with the rest of the owl family. One of my nephew’s favorite picks! - Lauren
The phrase, “A picture is worth a thousand words,” is never more true than when reading these two gems. Through sparse language and gorgeous illustrations, Klassen is able to depict irony, humor, and suspense. I have seen children and adults laughing out loud as they paged through these books. - Teresa
