This is my new go-to board book! Cute and practical, this book is fun to read, and babies can grow into it when they're toddlers learning numbers.
During the pandemic, my tastes have shifted from anything sad or depressing to all my middle school interests. Enter this amazing book about the past, present, and future of boy bands. It was so enjoyable!
This book was so enjoyable- if you liked Red, White, and Royal Blue, give this one a shot. It's got some really fun tropes, too- enemies to friends, fake dating, and buttoned up/messy match.
This book about worms is laugh out loud funny- it makes a great read-aloud book for a classroom! Good for fans of The Book with No Pictures or This is a Ball.
This graphic novel is a coming out story, a fitting in story, an immigration store, a loving family story, and a fairy tale, but it is so much more than the sum of all those parts. Read it- you will not be disappointed.
Lalli Music is a food director at the Bon Appetit Test Kitchen, and I love watching her videos- they make cooking seem like such an accessible, intuitive activity, and her first cookbook is no different. I think anyone could learn something from this book from technique, to recipe and laid-back do-what-fees-right cooking.
I really enjoyed this book that tackles sisterhood, insurance scam, and how to come back to a home you felt desperate to leave. Jayne and June are flawed to say the least, but so relatable.
This book checks off so many of my favorite children's book boxes: a girl marching to the literal beat of her own drum? Check. Parents who encourage creativity? Check. A wolf who's sorry he ate someone else? Check yes. Forsythe pairs a lovely, fairy tale-reminiscent story with gorgeous artwork. You'll want to join in Pokko's parade- just be sure to get behind the wolf.
If you're looking for a book you can pick up and put down that guarantees a laugh, look no further. Irby's wit and relatability grabbed me from page one.
If you read one picture book in 2021, let it be this one. It's so thoughtful and takes the time and space to let Milo's story and experience unfurl. It's completely wonderful.
