What is Children’s Book Week? It’s the annual celebration of books for young people and the joy of reading. Established in 1919, Children’s Book Week is the longest-running national literacy initiative in the country! To help us celebrate this wonderful event from November 9-15, Suma read through hundreds of books before deciding on her favorite characters and stories…And then it was time to paw through our costume bins in hopes of locating the purrfect outfit. The results?- See for yourself!
Ladybug Girl: When Lulu puts on her ladybug costume, she becomes Ladybug Girl, a superhero who uses her imagination to have adventures right in her own backyard. Her dog, Bingo the basset hound, is always by her side and the two prove that they are not too little to explore nature, build forts, and make their own big fun.
Harry Potter: Full of sympathetic characters, wildly imaginative situations, and countless exciting details, the first installment in the series assembles an unforgettable magical world and sets the stage for many high-stakes adventures to come.
Fancy Nancy: Meet Nancy, who believes that more is ALWAYS better when it comes to being fancy. She loves to wear fancy clothes, play with fancy toys, and most of all, use fancy words! But everyone in her family is just the opposite
Pete the Cat: Don’t miss the first and bestselling book in the beloved Pete the Cat series!
Pete the Cat goes walking down the street wearing his brand-new white shoes. Along the way, his shoes change from white to red to blue to brown to WET as he steps in piles of strawberries, blueberries, and other big messes!
But no matter what color his shoes are, Pete keeps movin’ and groovin’ and singing his song…because it’s all good. Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes asks the reader questions about the colors of different foods and objects–kids love to interact with the story.
Don’t miss Pete’s other adventures, including Pete the Cat: Rocking in My School Shoes, Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons, Pete the Cat Saves Christmas, Pete the Cat and His Magic Sunglasses, Pete the Cat and the Bedtime Blues, Pete the Cat and the New Guy, Pete the Cat and the Cool Cat Boogie, Pete the Cat and the Missing Cupcakes, Pete the Cat and the Perfect Pizza Party, and Pete the Cat: Crayons Rock!
Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Boys don’t keep diaries – or do they? Enjoy this fun-filled series narrated by an unforgettable kid every family can relate to!
The Cat in the Hat: He may be an old standby, but he never lets us down. When in doubt, turn to the story of the cat that transformed a dull, rainy afternoon into a magical and just-messy-enough adventure. There’s another, hidden adventure, too: this book really will help children learn to read. With his simple and often single-vowel vocabulary, the good Doctor knew what he was doing: hear it, learn it, read it–laughing all the way.
Where’s Waldo?: WALDO has wandered around the world, through time, and across the silver screen. Where is he off to now? Into a world of dreams and fantasies, of swarming scenes that could be invented only by the inspired mind of Martin Handford. Wilder and wackier than ever before, WALDO’s adventures now span a crazy cake factory, the Land of Woof (imagine 1,000 Woofs!), an endless maze of halls and doors (can you find the keys that match the keyholes?), a riotous fun fair of fruits and vegetables, and much more! Every teeming double-page spread features more than twice the characters—and twice the challenge—of previous WALDO books! WHERE’S WALDO? THE WONDER BOOK will make your eyes POP!
