Picture Book Preview: More fall reads

Believe it or not, we’ve got more beautiful picture books releasing this fall.  Sweet, quirky and and tons of fun — these three reads are sure to charm readers young and old.

Boot & Shoe

An endearing story from Caldecott winner Marla Frazee, Boot & Shoe is about two adorable dogs who were born into the same litter, and now live in the same house. They eat out of the same bowl, pee on the same tree, and sleep in the same bed. Their lives are just perfect… until a crazy neighborhood squirrel arrives and everything goes topsy-turvy!

Have a look at some of the beautifully detailed illustrations:

Christmas Parade

Tried, tested and true, Sandra Boynton picture books are family favourites and this year, we’ve got a new one just in time for Christmas.  Written with the irresistible rhythm of a lively marching band and chock-full of signature Boynton characters, Christmas Parade is the perfect Christmas gift for budding readers.

Santa from Cincinnati

New from the author of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs comes the life story of Santa Claus himself.

As you might imagine, the early life of Santa Claus was a liiiiiiiittle different from the childhood of your average kid. His first words were “ho ho ho!” By five he was wearing a fake beard and mustache, and could rarely be found without his favourite stuffed reindeer. It was clear from a very young age that he was destined for uniqueness…

Full of Barrett’s quick wit, Santa from Cincinnati will delight readers young and old.
