Picture Book Bonanza

Join Books of Wonder in exploring these sweet titles about learning to face your fears and how teamwork really can make the dream work!

  • In We Don’t Lose Our Class Goldfish, Penelope Rex faces her biggest (and fishiest) fear Walter, the class goldfish. So when Mrs. Noodleman tells the kids that they’ll be taking turns bringing Walter home, Penelope gets carried away by her anxious imagination. But then Walter goes missing! Penelope must face her fear to find him and realizes along the way that there’s more to Walter than his chomping jaws. Companion to the #1 New York Times best-selling We Don’t Eat Our Classmates by RYAN T. HIGGINS.
  • Hey Otter! Hey Beaver! we meet best friends Otter and Beaver, who both love their stream—but for two completely different reasons! While Otter loves to play in the water, Beaver works hard to build a dam. Hey Otter! Hey Beaver! is a funny and action-packed book about competition, cooperation, and friendship by the award-winning and bestselling BRIAN PINKNEY.
  • When Things Aren’t Going Right, Go Left by MARC COLAGIOVANNI reminds readers of their own agency and the power they have to direct their own path. With an enduring message of strength and perseverance that is both universal and personal, this book is one that readers will be drawn to over and over again!

*One book may be brought from home to be signed for every book purchased at the event.
