WHAT’S IN THE BOX: MAY 2017 PICTURE
Our first book this month, A Nest Is Noisy is a beautifully illustrated non-fiction book. The second book is A Horse Named Steve, a brand new zany hardcover.
A Nest is Noisy Dianna Hutts Aston and illustrator Sylvia Long have created six absolutely beautiful nonfiction books for children exploring seeds, eggs, butterflies, rocks, beetles and now nests. New in paperback, this book is full of facts and gorgeous illustrations that will interest readers at a variety of different ages. A simple poetic text through the book works for younger readers while there is much more for those who crave detailed information. Many creatures have nests including birds, alligators, frogs, sea turtles and the platypus. Lots to learn for adults too!
A Horse Named Steve by Kelly Collier from Toronto, Ontario. Kelly has hit a home run with her very first children’s book. You can’t help but fall in love with Steve, a horse who thinks he’s pretty fine. But he wants to be exceptional and he thinks he has achieved that the day he finds a gold horn, which he attaches to his head. He runs off to show his new horn to all his friends. He encourages his friends to find a horn too because they are looking kind of ordinary. Kelly has been drawing since she was a little girl and has a twin sister. She also has a dog that resembles Steve. Included in this box is an exclusive letter from Kelly to our readers. Stay tuned for our next blog, an interview I did with Kelly!
As an added bonus we included a sticker activity book with horses and other cute animals.
