Editors’ Picks: Honeybee & Firefly November

As Editors’ Picks Week comes to an end, we’d like to send you off with some wonderful reads for this month, selected by Honeybee editor Julia Kleinman and Firefly editor Laura Demoreuille! Also, a special thanks to our hardworking, awesome editors who took the time this week to share their picks!

HONEYBEE

 

Animals ABC Pack

Encounter close-up introductions to all different types of animal friends, from the pug you want to adopt to the cheetah you want to race. Pairing an animal with each letter of the alphabet, these books showcase some pretty wild animals (pangolin, anyone?) and some irresistibly wacky headshots.     

 

Christmas Tummies Set by Debbie Rivers-Moore, illustrated by Janet Samuel

Ever have the urge to reach out and touch Santa’s big tummy? Here’s your chance! From snowmen to reindeer, touch and feel the soft tummies of winter’s favorite stars. When you’ve had your fun, snuggle up with hot chocolate and bring on the holiday spirit with these festive little stories.

 

Llama Llama Zippity-Zoom by Anna Dewdney

My favorite toddler is back—and he’s got wheels! Rhyme and run as you try to catch Llama Llama, who is zooming though the schoolyard. Even the youngest readers can follow along in this simple story with a whole lot of zip!

 

Ten in the Den by John Butler

John Butler’s cuddly forest friends could double as every preschooler’s dream stuffed-animal collection. Join the party as readers count each animal in a cozy rendition of “Ten in the Bed.”  

 

Brave Little Owl by Penny Little, illustrated by Sean Julian

I fell in love with Little Owl, a timid owlet, whose difficulty in learning to fly beautifully reflects the hardship of learning something new. Her brothers can already fly, so why is it so hard for Little Owl? This exquisite tale of accomplishment inspires readers to confront their challenges, even when it feels a little scary. As Little Owl learns, once you’re brave, you can soar. 

 

FIREFLY

 

 Who Has These Feet? by Laura Hulbert, illustrated by Erik Brooks

Can you guess which feet belong to which animal? Do you know why frogs have sticky toes? Simple and fun nonfiction just right for preschoolers!

 

Llama Llama Holiday Drama by Anna Dewdney

Llama Llama can’t wait for the big day! First time in paperback.

 

 Rabbit’s Gift by George Shannon, illustrated by Laura Dronzek

When Rabbit finds an extra turnip, he shares it with his friends. A sweet lesson in generosity.

 

 The Littlest Elf by Brandi Dougherty, illustrated by Kirsten Richards

Oliver may be small, but he knows how to spread Christmas cheer!

 

The Gingerbread Bear by Robert Dennis, illustrated by Tammie Lyon

Run, run, try if you dare! You can’t catch me, I’m the Gingerbread Bear! An irresistible spin on the classic story.
