The Great Lollipop Caper | Dan Krall | Loving this cute story today! Caper was loved by adults but kids hated his acidic flavour. Why couldn't kids love him the way they love Lolliop. He devises an evil plan to get all the children to love him but it backfires and angers the adults too. My theory: 20% of people will love you no matter what you do, and 20% won't no matter what you do. Don't focus on the latter 20%. Just be a Caper. πŸ’š

Ronel & the Best Gift Ever! | Ronel D. Pierre | This Reader's Favorite Book Award Winner is based on the true story of the author and illustrator. A story about an orphan hoping for a family of his own, finding solace in his art and demonstrating kindness towards others even if they were not always the kindest to him. 
Ronel has helped raise over $9 million for NPHUSA.org (an organization that helps orphaned, disadvantaged and abandoned children) and proceeds of this book will also go to this cause. 
Thank you Ronel for sending this book my way and opening my eyes to what you do. Kindness created you kind and you are a loving example of this.✌️️

If... | Sarah Perry | My son saw this book and said that it was weird that the fish are a part of the branch. 😳 So I challenged him, what IF they were? πŸ€”

Sarah Perry encourages us to think outside the box. "If dogs were mountains...If music could be held..." Sometimes we get so used to something being the way it is that we can't imagine it anyway else. My favourite...."If ugly were beautiful..." See where it takes you. .

Sisters | Raina Telgemeier | I told my daughter her copy of Sisters would disappear if she didn't get up for school. It worked. πŸ™Š

I feel like Raina Telgemeier is the Judy Blume of this generation. Her voice is their voice. A funny and real story about two sisters and how their relationship grows and changes with a new brother in the picture and parents going through a rough patch. My daughter references this graphic novel constantly! πŸ‘πŸ»βœŒπŸ»οΈ

The Bear and the Piano | David Litchfield | A young cub finds something strange in the forest that makes an awful sound.  But for years the bear keeps coming back until the sounds that he could create were strong and beautiful. This alone would make a good story but there's more. The bear leaves the forest and his bear friends to perform in giant theatres in the city. He becomes a star. ⭐️But he misses his friends. And his home. When he returns he finds that his friends and family followed his rise to stardom and are his greatest supporters, and it is there in that forest that he performs for his most special audience. β­οΈπŸ’•πŸŽΉπŸŽΌ

Playground | Mies van Hout | We are still enjoying our white snowy playground! ❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️
Kids go on an adventure on their way to the playground! They encounter birds hatching in nests, yummy blackberries, huge monsters and more. A wonderful reminder that we should enjoy the journey as much as the destination. So cliche I know! But I believe we all need a reminder. For the kids, I'm reinforcing that all these exciting days leading up to Christmas should be enjoyed as much as the big day. πŸŽ„πŸ™β„οΈ .
