If you like fiesty pricess or books featuring kids with glasses I found one for you. Princess Peepers Picks a Pet features a a little princess with glasses who isn’t afraid to stand out.

Nervous about the hospital?

If you or your little one is nervous about a hospital visit, come to Salmon Arm branch and read I Don’t Want to Go to Hospital!” by Tony Ross.

Great Picture Book For Adopted Kids

A Mother For Choco by Keiko Kasza is a heartwarming story of a bird who is trying to find it’s mother and discovers that a mother doesn’t have to look like you to take good care of you.

a mother for chocoThis is a nice picture book for families with adopted children, especially if they are questioning why they don’t look like their parents.

For the whole family

If there is someone in your family learning to tell time and a toddler The Clock Struck One is the book for you. The rhymes, counting and silliness are great for the little ones. 

That the clock in the pictures changes throughout the story helps kids learn to tell time.

This is a great book for older kids to read to younger siblings.

Learning to share space

memoirs of a goldfishWe received a new book at the SA Branch today called Memoirs of a Goldfish by Devin Scilloan and Illustrated by Tim Bowers.

Apart from the truly adorable illustrations on every page, I think this is a great story for kids.

If you have an expanding family, or if your little one’s having trouble adjusting to sharing space this little fish who learns to like having company is a good way to breach the topic with them.
