New Books for Children January 1, 2013

The holiday season blows through, bursting with family and friends! Gatherings, food, festivities, and joy…

But sometimes, we need a moment. We need a moment to be by ourselves. And that’s okay!

This week’s featured picture book Baby Penguins Everywhere! shows young children that, sometimes, a bit of alone time is all it takes to make togetherness a lot more fun!

New books continue to arrive at Richland Library. Look below for some of the latest arrivals, or stop by the closest Richland Library location to browse in person.

Amazon Says: Can there be such a thing as too many adorable penguins? One day a penguin sees a most unusual sight: a hat floating in the icy water. Even more unusual? Out of the hat pops a baby penguin. But not just one baby penguin . . . or even two. But a third, and a fourth, and on and on! At first the mama penguin is happy for the company. Until she realizes that taking care of a family is very hard, very tiring work, and what she could really use is just a moment alone. Yet as newcomer Melissa Guion reminds us in her adorable debut picture book, alone time is all well and good, but, it's together time that's best of all. Perfect for any mama penguin with a family, or classroom, full of mischievous little ones. less...

Amazon Says: Jamie Grimm is a middle schooler on a mission: he wants to become the world's greatest standup comedian--even if he doesn't have a lot to laugh about these days. He's new in town and stuck living with his aunt, uncle, and their evil son Stevie, a bully who doesn't let Jamie's wheelchair stop him from messing with Jamie as much as possible. But Jamie doesn't let his situation get him down. When his Uncle Frankie mentions a contest called The Planet's Funniest Kid Comic, Jamie knows he has to enter. But are the judges only rewarding him out of pity because of his wheelchair, like Stevie suggests? Will Jamie ever share the secret of his troubled past instead of hiding behind his comedy act? Following the bestselling success of the hilarious Middle School, The Worst Years of My Life, James Patterson continues to dish out the funnies in another highly-illustrated, heartfelt middle school story. (Includes more than 175 black-and-white illustrations.) less...
