It’s always the right time for making new friends!

This book tells a new story every time you open it, with so much to discover in the playfully packed illustrations and silly suggestions. It's the perfect memory-making experience for story time. —Jenny

The Sea in the Way by Sophie Gilmore

Badger and Bear are the best of friends despite being separated by time zones, sputtering phone lines, and THE SEA. When the sea asks for more and more and then one thing too many, Badger finally sees that what divides the two friends also joins them together. Awash in ocean colors from edge to edge, these lovely pages beckon us to truly understand the distance between one another. A very thoughtful story for kids and parents alike. —Michelle

Patchwork Written by Matt de la Peña

Illustrated with a precious palette of pastels, this picture book portrays our lives as patchwork quilts woven from our experiences, emotions, strengths, and weaknesses. Though they make up who we are, these patchworks inevitably change shape and color with time, yet they remain beautiful. Coupled with incredible illustrations, this story conveys a beautiful message that makes a great book for the whole family. —Eli

Dear Wild Child: You Carry Your Home Inside You Written by Wallace J. Nichols & Wallace Grayce Nichols

What a gift. Nichols and his daughter have turned the emotional letter he wrote to her after their family home burned down in the CZU Fire into this special book, celebrating what was built and what will endure. Breckmeyer’s colorful illustrations add reverent intimacy in their many details. While the book’s framework comes from devastating loss, its message of how we create a sense of home and carry it forward is gracious and universal. —Melinda

One Sky by Aaron Becker

With his signature tinted windows, Becker’s newest board book One Sky invites readers to hold the pages up to a sunny day and see how light plays with the colors. Atmospheric and ethereal, this read-aloud celebrates the sky in a fun and interactive way. I love books that you can engage with in multiple ways! Like Becker’s You Are Light and My Favorite Color, this one is especially great for infants because of its tactile nature. —Eli
