The Snurtch

Sean Ferrell

Some days are Snurtch days. Ruthie is having one of those. Ruthie has a problem at school. It is not the students. It is not the classroom. It is not the reading or the writing or the math. It is something scribbly, scrunchy, grabby, burpy, and rude. It is the Snurtch. From the team behind I Don’t Like Koala, this clever picture book takes a discerning look at the challenges of behaving and controlling your emotions—especially when your own personal monster keeps getting in the way. Ages 4 to 8.

They All Saw a Cat

Brendan Wenzel

In simple, rhythmic prose and stylized pictures, a cat walks through the world, and all the other creatures see and acknowledge the cat. This glorious celebration of observation, curiosity, and imagination shows readers the many lives of one cat, and how perspective shapes what we see. When you see a cat, what do you see? Ages 3 to 5.
