1. The Day the Crayons Quit
Words by Drew Daywals. Illustrated by Oliver Jeffers

For children ages 3 to 7
Here’s a book every child and parent wants on their shelf. This New York Times bestseller is beautifully illustrated with a funny, inspired story. It’s the story of Duncan and what he found when he opened his box of crayons--no crayons but full of letters! The notes are from his crayons, each saying they’ve had enough and they quit! It’s an absolutely enjoyable read.
The Day Crayons Quit (P484 – paperback) 


2. The Adventures of Beekle: The Unimaginary Friend
By Dan Santat

For children ages 4 to 7
Winner of the 2015 Caldecott Medal, this is the story of an imaginary friend who lived on an island until he traveled the world to look and patiently wait for a real child to give him his name and be his friend. Follow his incredible journey into the bustling city in this tale of friendship, imagination, and courage to find one’s place in the world. The stunning artwork alone makes this book worth it. With the story, it becomes a book to treasure.  
The Adventures of Beekle: The Unimaginary Friend (P849 – hardcover) 


3. A Perfectly Messed-Up Story

By Patrick McDonnell

For children ages 4 to 7
Introducing a new reader to the world of books? This interactive and engaging read-aloud is the perfect choice. It’s about Little Louie and the story he’s trying to tell. Trying because it keeps getting messed up! And what’s the point of telling it if he can’t tell it perfectly, right? The tale tells of embracing life’s messes and how something can be good even with imperfections included. 
A Perfectly Messed-Up Story (P849 – hardcover) 

4. The Lion & the Mouse
Art by Jerry Pinkney

For children ages 1 to 8
Every grown-up knows this beloved Aesop tale of a ferocious lion sparing the life of a cowering mouse. Not all, however, have seen it this beautifully illustrated. This adaptation purely uses illustrations that are both expressive, funny and imaginative. The book won the 2010 Caldecott Medal, and it’s perfect for little ones who have yet to learn how to read.
The Lion & the Mouse (P899 – hardcover) 


5. Waiting is Not Easy!
By Mo Willems

For children ages 6 to 8
Any book in the Elephant and Piggie children’s series makes a great gift and that includes this one. Gerald and Piggie are best friends, and in this episode, Piggie has a surprise for Gerald. But, the trouble is, he has to wait to have it! Wait, wait… wait! It’s quite a long wait, but will it be worth it? Patience (and learning the importance of delayed gratification) is what Gerald need, and what this Theodor Seuss Geisel Award-winning book can teach kids. 
Waiting is Not Easy! (P489 – hardcover) 


6. I Love My Mommy
Words by Giles Andreae. Illustrated by Emma Dodd

For children ages 1 to 5
This sweet book is just as much for a little one as it is for mom. In rhyming child-like verses, the toddler talks about all the things he loves about his mom, from being great to cuddle and hug, to being soft to touch and everything in between. When you, mom, are having a bad day, read this--for yourself.  
I Love My Mommy (P349 – board book) 

7. To The Sea
By Cale Atkinson

For children ages 3 to 5
Another visual stunner, this book may not be in the usual bright color palettes we see in children’s books, but the contrast in lights and darks are the perfect choice for this book on loneliness and friendship. It’s the story of Tim who sometimes feels invisible at school--until he meets a washed-ashore whale named Sam. However, Tim knows that whales belong in the ocean. 
To the Sea (P849 – hardcover) 


8. The Missing Piece Meets the Big O
By Shel Silverstein

For children ages 1 to 8
Sometimes, the simplest stories have the most impact. It’s definitely true for Shel Silverstein’s most loved children’s books. The story follows the missing piece as it waits for someone to come along that can take it somewhere. It’s a book meant for kids but any adult who reads this to their child is bound to love it, too. 
The Missing Piece Meets the Big O (P599 – hardcover) 


9. The Little Prince Graphic Novel
Adapted by Joann Sfar

For children ages 10 to 12
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s The Little Prince is a classic, and if you’ve read it you know how easy it is to fall in love with it. Let the child fall in love with it, too, by gifting her this comic book. The Little Prince is about life, love, friendship and growing up told through the tale of the Little Prince who comes from another planet only to land on Earth and meet a pilot stranded in the dessert.
