Got Books?

Kovr_065_2 Monday morning on KOVR Sacramento Daybreak (Channel 13/ CBS)was great fun. I got to hang out with news anchors Michelle Kane and Cody Stark and talk about some awesome books. What’s not to love? Besides the middle grades books I talked about in my last post, I highlighted the following picture books: Cover_augarde

We’re Going On An Airplane a pop-up book by Steve Augarde, with lots of fun flaps and even a cock-pit for little aviators.

Cover_knufflebunny Knuffle Bunny, a "cautionary tale" by 6 time Emmy award winning Sesame Street animator/writer, Mo Willems. Trixie, Knuffle Bunny, and Daddy go to the laundromat and when they head home, Trixie realizes Knuffle Bunny is gone! Inside_knufflebunny

My favorite page is when Daddy still doesn’t know what Trixie’s trying to tell him. She had no choice….

"She bawled. She went boneless…"

Isn’t this great?

Last but not least is Wow City!Cover_wow_city by Robert Neubecker, about his daughter Izzie’s first trip from their small town in Utah to the Big Apple, NYC. Great visuals! Kids will love hunting for red-haired Izzie on each page, and a stray yellow dog that pops up each time too.  Neubecker is a NYTimes contributor.  Wow!

That’s it for today.

Have to PBIC and Write NOW!Kovr_003
