 Baby's First Journal (Age: Babies - 1 year)
Record all of the special moments of baby's first year in this beautiful baby book. Includes sections for baby's "firsts", favorites, family tree, photos and more! Baby's First Journal makes a great gift for new parents! I have given this baby book as a gift at a few showers and I always get rave reviews from the new moms and dads. I can't wait until my daughter is old enough to looks through her copy and learn about her first year of life!

 Who's in the Garden? (Age: 1 - 4 years)
This adorable book asks your little one to answer the question "Who's coming to see how my garden grows?" By looking through the holes in the page, children are able to see which little critter is coming to visit the garden next. I love the bouncy, rhyming text in this book and the illustrations by Jill McDonald are so colorful and fun to look at. This book is a joy to read over and over again.

Jack and the Beanstalk (Age: 3 - 7 years)
A retelling of the classic tale about a boy who trades his cow for a handful of beans. The whimsical illustrations give us a new take on a traditional story without losing the old world charm.  This magical book is sure to be a favorite for your children! This book is available with or without a CD. The CD holds a recording of the story read by Richard Hope - complete with sound effects! Books on CD are a great way to keep the little ones entertained on long card rides!

Winter Shadow (Age: 7 years and up)
Maria finds a lone wolf cub on her walk to school and goes against her village elders wishes when she adopts the cub whom she names Shadow. It doesn't take long for Maria and Shadow to become inseparable. But what will happen when a mysterious storyteller comes to town and Shadow disappears?

This is honestly one of the most visually appealing chapter books I have ever seen. Each page has beautiful illustrations that work around the text. I think this is a great choice for a child who is just starting to get into longer, chapter books. The books explores the delicate balance between humans and nature and the ties between an individual and her community.
