Kids Nook Reads: Sniffles for Bear

Ah fall, the time for sweaters, warm drinks, and… the sniffles. As much as we may try to prevent it, sometimes getting the occasional sniffle and flu is just inevitable. At least that’s the case for the main character in this picture book, The Sniffles for Bear. But luckily for this bear, he has a great friend to take care of him!

Kids Nook Reads: Jack and the Beanstalk

“Fi-fi-fo-fum! I smell the blood of an English man!”

Ah yes. Goose bumps every time.

In case you haven’t noticed, we’re big fans of Jack and the Beanstalk at Kids Nook. It’s one of the very first stories we ever told, and it’s continued to be one of our staples. So when we found a retelling of this classic tale from one of our favorite publishers, Barefoot Books, we just couldn’t resist!

Kids Nook Reads: Cave Baby

When my mom was a little girl, her slightly taller twin sister would get down on her knees and color on the wall. Of course since it was right at my mom’s eye level she would always be the one getting in trouble. Pretty creative thinking on my aunt’s part, huh?

Today’s story is about another mischievous child who likes to get creative with the home decor. Meet Cave Baby by Julia Donaldson.
