Book Lists

Ok, so I work in the children’s department of Barnes and Noble most of the time. This means that I get interesting questions like “I need a book for a seven year old girl obsessed with the weather channel. Can you suggest something?” I finally decided that I was going to write down my suggestions and what the customer or I find in the store for some of these questions and post them here (mostly for my own reference, but also because it could be interesting to other people). These lists now have a page of their own in the Books section of the site. I will also post lists or additions as blog entries as they are added. Here are tonights two new lists!

Books for kids who recently became big brothers/sisters

A Baby Sister for Frances by Russell Hoban, illustrated by Lillian Hoban
Angelina’s Baby Sister by Katharine Holabird, illustrated by Helen Craig
Arthur’s Baby by Marc Brown
Big Sister Dora by Alison Inches, illustrated by Dave Aikins
The Berenstain Bears’ New Baby by Stan and Jan Berenstain
The Berenstain Bears and Baby Makes Five by Stan and Jan Berenstain


Books with no words or easily covered words

The Mysteries of Harris Burdick by Chris Van Allsburg
Dinosaur! by Peter Sis
Window by Jeannie Baker
The Spider and the Fly by Mary Howitt, illustrated by Tony DiTerlizzi

If you have any suggestions for any existing list (or if I missed your favorite or your child’s favorite or something) I would love to hear about it! Post suggestions in the comments please!
