2021 New Releases, Book Lists

New Releases – October 2021

So many great books came out this month! Sometimes it’s easy to miss these new releases because they now come out every Thursday. Here’s the roundup for October!

We’ll start with our youngest readers! These two new releases in these well-loved series are perfect for the upcoming winter season.

Don’t Tickle the Polar Bear

Featuring a walrus, seal, and a puffin alongside the polar bear and of course the dance finale is sure to get everyone smiling! Our youngest daughter loves the Don’t Tickle books, so we ordered this one right away. Ages 6 months +

Are you there little Penguin?

I’m a huge fan of our Are you there series and both my girls love them too! They’re short story books with a fun search and find, looking for an animal. Are you there little penguin? is sure to bring giggles all year long! And spoiler alert, s/he just might be cuddled up with dad at the end! (Each book in the series has the animal with mom, dad, or friends at the end.) Ages 6 months +

The Stormy Day Little Board Book

Storms can be scary, especially for little children. In sing-song text, this comforting tale about a stormy day by the sea tells children all about what happens in a storm. Loud wind, big black clouds, and grumbly thunder, but there’s nothing to worry about – all storms pass. After the storm comes the calm again – and lots of interesting things to find on the beach. (With online audio to hear the story read aloud.) Ages 18 months +

Peek Inside a Fairy Tale Aladdin

Enter the fairy tale world of genies and magic in this delightful new addition to the Peek Inside a Fairy Tale series. Aladdin is a poor boy, but by trusting his instincts, and with a little luck, he achieves his heart’s desire.

Lion is having trouble waking up. With the help of his new friends, Lion learns 13 energizing poses to help him make the most of his day.

Child-friendly illustrations clearly demonstrate poses, and notes to the parent are included. Ages 3+

Hey Jack!

Hey Jack! is full of down-to-earth, realistic stories, with word art or illustration on every second page.
