New Children's Books!
Pancakes for Supper by Anne Isaacs: Based on The Story of Little Black Sambo, written by Helen Bannerman and first published in 1899. Setting the present story in New England, Anne Isaacs blends elements from American storytelling traditions and Bannerman's tale, while introducing animals indigenous to North America and an indomitable new heroine.

Chalk by Bill Thomson: A rainy day. Three kids in a park. A dinosaur spring rider. A bag of chalk. The kids begin to draw...and then...magic! Your kids will enjoy the story in this wordless picture book!

Rosie Revere, Engineer by Andrea Beaty: Where some people see rubbish, Rosie Revere sees inspiration. Alone in her room at night, shy Rosie constructs great inventions from odds and ends. Hot dog dispensers, helium pants, python-repelling cheese hats: Rosie's gizmos would astound - if she ever let anyone see them.
Iggy Peck, Architect by Andrea Beaty: Some kids sculpt sand castles.   Some make mud pies. Some construct great block towers. But none are better at  building  than Iggy Peck, who once erected a life-size replica of the Great Sphinx on his front lawn!
The Boy Who Cried Ninja by Alex Latimer: Cake-stealing ninjas! Tea-slurping pirates! Time-traveling monkeys! Mischief is afoot, and no one believes poor Tim's explanations for any of it. No matter what Time says, his parents just punish him with chores. To save himself, Tim hatches a plan to expose the truth. Will it work or will he have to spend all of eternity raking the yard?
