When baby says "bah!" the rest of the family scrambles to bring him balls and books and bows and bottles, sheep and baby dolls and blankets and even a brother! But it turns out that all along, the baby was just trying to say "bye-bye."
A perect gift for baby showers, new parents, and new siblings.
Praise for BAH! Said the Baby:
"A nifty romp that doubles as a guessing game (with some phonics tied in), this has appeal for large read-aloud crowds as well as siblings who seek a lighter new-baby tale."--Kirkus Reviews
"Simple colorful backgrounds accentuate Plecas’s bright and playful illustrations; her cartoon style is humorous and expressive....Parents and children with younger siblings are sure to relate to the pitfalls and joys of communicating with pre-verbal babies."--School Library Journal
"Add this charmer to the lineup for a baby-themed storytime, or share it with the older sibs of an almost-verbal little one."--BCCB
Jennifer Plecas's bold artwork and lively text come together in a celebration of imagination and the love between a parent and child. Great for Father's Day, but wonderful for any day that parent and child spend together.
A beloved chapter book full of adventure, mischief, and chocolate popsicles, from Newbery Medal-winning author Betsy Byars! This chapter book is an excellent choice to share during homeschooling, in particular for children ages 6 to 8 who are ready to read independently. It’s a fun way to keep your child engaged and as a supplement for activity books for children.
One Saturday, Jackson and his best pal, Goat, hide treasures for each other to find with maps and clues—and it’s so much fun that the boys decide to do it all over again. Only this time, the hunts will be trickier, and the prizes will be outstanding.
But somehow, the best treasure of all disappears from its hiding place. Only one person could be responsible: the ogre, also known as Goat’s older sister, Rachel.
Can the two friends find the treasure before the ogre gets the last laugh?
Little kittens Olive and Emily have always been friends, ever since they were little. But now Emily has a new friend, and it makes Olive feel left out—especially when she realizes all of the things that Emily and her new friend Eva have in common--like ballet, and eating the same lunch, and wearing the same bows in their hair. Olive imagines her perfect world, where she and Emily can be friends without Eva there at all. But in the end, Olive realizes that being friends is about more than having things in common: it's about having fun together and cheering each other up when you're sad. It turns out that Olive's perfect world is the world that she's living in, where she, Emily and Eva can all be friends. (And dance the chicken dance together!)
This book is perfect for fans of Ladybug Girl and Bumblebee Boy, as well as kids whose friendships are changing and maturing as they enter kindergarten and elementary school.
Jennifer Plecas is the author and illustrator of the book Pretend, and the illustrator of Good Night, Good Knight by Shelley Moore, and Please is a Good Word To Say and Love is a Good Thing to Feel by Barbara Joosse, among others.
Fly is fed up with everyone studying butterflies. Flies are so much cooler! They flap their wings 200 times a second, compared to a butterfly's measly five to twelve times. Their babies-maggots-are much cuter than caterpillars (obviously). And when they eat solid food, they even throw up on it to turn it into a liquid. Who wouldn't want to study an insect like that?
In an unforgettably fun, fact-filled presentation, this lovable (and highly partisan) narrator promotes his species to a sometimes engrossed, sometimes grossed-out, class of kids.
Good Night, Good Knight, the first in the Good Knight series, was an ALA Notable Book and a Booklist Top 10 Easy Reader, among other honors.
Lulu prefers playing basketball to playing with dolls.

Bestselling and award-winning author Esmé Raji Codell has crafted an action-packed, slam-dunk picture book that will appeal to girlie girls and sporty girls alike.
The book includes a glossary of basketball terms.
