Guys! It’s 2015!

A New Year always brings two things: well-intentioned [but doomed] resolutions and fantastic new children’s books.

We’re thrilled to announce our Spring 2015 list, which is filled with award-winning talent, mischievous cow-folk, daydreaming chickens, and migrating toads!

NEW Picture Books:


Illustrated by Caldecott Honor Book winner Molly Idle, Rodeo Red is a rip-roaring story of sibling rivalry with a cheeky Western twist.

Julie Paschkis, inspired by traditional Ukrainian pysanky, weaves an original folk tale celebrating individuality and imagination in P. Zonka Lays an Egg.

Toad Weather’s lyrical text by Sandra Markle and stunning paintings by New York Times bestselling illustrator Thomas Gonzalez explore a remarkable natural occurrence that, when the weather is just right, happens each spring in rain-soaked Philadelphia.

In Kashmira Sheth’s Sona and the Wedding Game, a young Indian girl learns about her culture when she’s tasked with stealing the groom’s shoes at her sister’s wedding.

NEW Middle Grade:


Each quirky poem in Random Body Parts poses a puzzle in verse (with a sly nod to Shakespeare) and provides hints for uncovering the answers—all of which are biological.

NEW additions to your favorite series:


Love Stanley? William Bee’s hat-wearing hamster is back! Stanley the Farmer invites young children to the farm where they’ll explore processes, colors, and machines in a sweet, simple world.

Spectacular Spots, the charming companion to Stripes of All Types, features bright, beautifully detailed paintings of spotted creatures and their habitats.

A complex narrative of endings and forgiveness, Some Kind of Magic marks the finale of Adrian Fogelin’s award-winning Neighborhood novels.
