Picture Book of the Day

Uh-Oh!
by Mary Newell DePalma (Author, Illustrator)

Chapter Book of the Day

Little Wings #1: Willa Bean’s Cloud Dreams
by Cecilia Galante (Author) and Kristi Valiant (Illustrator)
112 pages

Booktalk: Most cupids have soft straight hair, rosy cheeks, and silky white wings. Not Willa Bean! She has a crazy mess of hair, a million-bajillion freckles, and bright purple wings with silver tips. And lately those bright purple wings with silver tips have been giving Willa Bean an awful lot of problems. They won’t fly!

Snippet: Harper was going to help Wllla Bean in a very special way.

She was going to teach Willa Bean how to get those purple wings with the silvers tips of hers to behave.

Because there was no way, nohow, nope-ity, nope, nope, nope, that Willa Bean was going to start at the Cupid Academy tomorrow without being able to fly.
