Cozy up with Tameka Fryer Brown’s Brown Baby Lullaby.  From sunset to bedtime, one very active baby keeps Momma and Papi busy…but yummy tummy kisses and warm snuggles make this bebito sleepy, just in time for bed. With Spanish words sprinkled throughout, this is the perfect snuggle up for snoozing story! Tameka’s warm family stories belong on every child’s bookshelf!

Unicorn or horse? In Jason Tharp’s It’s Okay To Be A Unicorn, Cornelius J. Sparkleseed is known among all the other horses in Hoofington for his beautiful and creative homemade hats. But Cornelius is hiding a secret under his own tall, pointy hat. He’s really a unicorn. When Cornelius is chosen to perform for this year’s Hoofapalooza, will he find the courage to show everyone his unicorniness? Kids will thrill to this inspiring story about the rainbow magic of kindness. Jason travels the country sharing the value of dreaming big, accepting ourselves, and having empathy for others.
