The Pirate's Bed

A pirate is sleeping snug in his bed, dreaming pirate dreams, when a great storm comes up at sea. The pirate sleeps on, but his bed is awake and scared of the thunder and the angry waves. The ship finally crashes, sending the pirate to a tropical island and his bed off to sea. At first, the bed is overjoyed. It's free from smelly feet, snoring and scratchy wool. But soon the little bed begins to feel like something is missing. This fanciful tale of a bed lost at sea will capture the hearts of little pirates everywhere.

I Don't Like Koala

What's not to love about a cute, cuddly... creepy toy koala? This is the story of a boy and the stuffed animal he just can't seem to shake. Adam does not like Koala. Koala is a little creepy. Adam tries explaining this to his parents. He tries putting Koala away--far away. He tries taking Koala on a long, long walk. Nothing works. Will Adam ever be rid of Koala? This darkly funny debut picture book from Sean Ferrell and Charles Santoso celebrates imagination and bravery while addressing a universal childhood dilemma: what to do about that one stuffed animal who just won't stop staring at you


How Do Dinosaurs Say Good Night?

In each playful spread of this read-aloud bedtime book, parents are ready to put their kids to bed -- but these youngsters just happen to be dinosaurs!

The Snatchabook

A brilliantly written, laugh-out-loud rhyming text about books and the joy of reading in the vein of New York Times bestsellers It's a Book , How Rocket Learned to Read , and Dog Loves Books . Where have all the bedtime stories gone? One dark, dark night in Burrow Down, a rabbit named Eliza Brown found a book and settled down... when a Snatchabook flew into town. It's bedtime in the woods of Burrow Down, and all the animals are ready for their bedtime story. But books are mysteriously disappearing. Eliza Brown decides to stay awake and catch the book thief. It turns out to be a little creature called the Snatchabook who has no one to read him a bedtime story. All turns out well when the books are returned and the animals take turns reading bedtime stories to the Snatchabook.

We also showcased TumbleBooks, a web-based story archive that provides hundreds of read alouds anywhere you have internet access! (User name and passwords available in the sidebar).
