Do you have GUTS? We do! Stop by after school and get’em while they last. @goraina @graphixbooks @scholasticinc
We highly recommend this beautiful book about young Venezuelan pianist Teresa Carreno. “Margarita Engle’s free verse whirls and twirls, playful and vivacious, while Rafael Lopez’s vivid colorful artwork elevates this story to heavenly heights. Like a concerto for the heart.” - Kirkus Reviews. #covertocoverchildrensbooks
Thank you to the generous illustrator and author Will Hillenbrand and all the young readers who came to Cover to Cover to meet him and hear him read his new book this morning!
An impromptu mini-storytime today featuring the boys, Bryan and “Ball & Balloon!” Balloon is super special. What if Ball is not so special. Turns out Ball’s got some moves of his own.
Upper Arlington Public Library and Cover to Cover present NYT bestselling author Margaret Peterson Haddix at the UAPL Friends Theater. She will discuss and sign copies of “Remarkables.” It’s your chance to meet the esteemed author and hear about the creation of her latest book. We were fortunate enough to read an early copy, and we absolutely love it! Admission is free, but registration is required. The link to register for this event is in our bio.
New from author Mac Barnett and illustrator Greg Pizzoli, a hilarious early reader series about a mischievous rabbit, a cranky old lady and a lovable dog. A perfect read-aloud with rhythmic text. A good series to bridge the gap between picture books and chapter books. @penguinkids @macbarnett @gregpizzoli #covertocoverchildrensbooks
Feeling different, especially as a kid, can be tough. But in the same way different types of plants and flowers make a garden more beautiful and enjoyable, different types of people make our world more vibrant and wonderful. “Just Ask!: Be Different, Be Brave, Be You” is an affirmative, delightfully diverse overview of disabilities. Author Sonia Sotomayor engages the metaphor of a garden to explain how variation creates beauty: “Thousands of plants bloom together, but every flower, every berry, and every leaf is different... kids are different too.” Rafael Lopez’s beautiful artwork shows diverse children working together on a spacious garden. We love this book! It comes out Tuesday, September 3. (4 to 8 years)
So many new books in our expanding middle reader section. There’s no better way to spend time during a long weekend than reading!
