What is the ONE item that gives my children and I hours and hours of entertainment and learning each day?? 


That I is why I am so so excited to let you know about the new picture book releases from July that we recently received from Random House Children's Books! My son sits down to read these every day and never tires of them! They are all fun to read, have great colorful pictures and fun words and story lines!


Duck and Goose are back and this time they are on a mission to find a pumpkin.

MR. NOAH AND HIS FAMILY by Jane Werner; illustrated by Alice and Martin Provensen
Fun rhymes and adorable toy animals fill the pages of this classic Little Golden Book—now back in print!

This classic Little Golden Book, now back in print, features adorable artwork of a child playing with her toy Noah’s Ark set, accompanied by a sweet rhyme that preschoolers will love to hear as they identify the animals.

JANE WERNER was one of the first editors of the Little Golden Book line. She wrote many of them over the years, including the bestselling classic My Little Golden Book About God.

Caldecott medalists ALICE and MARTIN PROVENSEN began to illustrate books together in 1946, many of them for Golden Books. Their Little Golden Book The Color Kittens, written by Margaret Wise Brown, is a beloved classic.

THE COW WENT OVER THE MOUNTAIN by Jeanette Krinsley; illustrated by Feodor Rojankovsky
Is the grass really greener on the other side? A Little Golden Book classic—now back in print!

Little Golden Books is well-recognized by readers young and old, with stories featuring farm animals as some of their bestselling and most beloved titles.

Little Cow thinks life will be better on the “other mountain,” and convinces a few animals that the grass will be munchier, the bugs crunchier, the water sploshier, the mud sloshier . . . but when they get there, they find that the grass isn’t really greener on the other side. This simple, witty tale, brought to life by Caldecott medalist Feodor Rojankovsky, was originally published in 1963 and is now back in print as a Little Golden Book Classic.

Born in Russia, FEODOR ROJANKOVSKY (1891-1970) immigrated to the United States in 1941. He immediately began working on books for his friend Georges Duplaix’s company, Artists and Writers Guild, which had just begun to produce a new line of titles called Little Golden Books. Rojankovsky went on to become one of the most prolific illustrators of Golden Books. In 1956, he was awarded the Caldecott Medal for Frog Went A-Courtin' (Harcourt).
