Don’t miss out on these books – they are our new favorites!
The First Book: WE ARE GROWING
This book has a hilarious take on talking about how growing up isn’t always the EASIEST.
Walt and his friends are growing up fast! Everyone is the something-est. But . . . what about Walt? He is not the tallest, or the curliest, or the silliest. He is not the anything-est! As a BIG surprise inches closer, Walt discovers something special of his own!
My kids cannot get enough of this book. It’s humor is spot on for little ones and the images bring this story to life. Be sure to grab this one the second that it hits the shelves!

The Second Book: COOKIE FIASCO
This book is like one big math problem for your kids to figure out right along side the characters!
Four Friends. Three Cookies. One Problem.
Hippo, Croc, and the Squirrels are determined to have equal cookies for all! But how? There are only three cookies . . . And four of them. . . What’s more, they need to act fast before nervous Hippo breaks all the cookies into crumbs!
Will your kids figure out this problem before the characters do??
