Stack-Buster #2

Miles to Go by Jamie Harper
A small car enthusiast wends his way to school in a book tailor-made for the kids who can’t get enough of the things that go. Subtle and quirky touches (like his shirt!) will make this an enjoyable one-on-one book as well. Parents will smile at Miles’ imitation of the adult drivers in his life.

Ten Days and Nine Nights by Yumi Heo
A little girl counts down the days until her new adopted sister arrives from Korea. Wordless interstitials show the mother’s journey across the ocean to pick up the baby sister. This book beautifully expresses the excitement of an older sibling, and it will speak to the thousands of adopted children in this country.

Wow! Said the Owl by Tim Hopgood
A little owl decides to stay up all day and is overwhelmed by the colors he sees. But as night comes back around, he decides that it’s just as beautiful as the day. I used this in a color storytime. The pages fairly glow with the hues of nature, each page focused on one particular color.
