Stories for Boys Who Dare to Be Different by Ben Brooks is totally not just for boys! It highlights all of the awesome dudes in the world who have done amazing things. From Jim Henson to Steve Irwin, this hardcover book is chock full o' fun mini biographies of over 150 men who have changed the world. Each biography includes a colorful illustration and a one page description of each person. I loved reading about all of these men and their accomplishments. It helps to encourage boys of all ages to reach for their dreams. Recommended for ages 8-12, 160 pages, hardcover.

You can't beat the quality of National Geographic Kids books. The Little Kids First Big Book of Why brings an interactive question-and-answer format to young kids everywhere. The Big Book of Why delivers relevant, fun information through hands-on games, simple recipes, crafts, and more. What makes a car go? How does mushy dough become a crispy cookie?

Guion the Lion by Rebecca Wilson Macsovits
(Fiction/Picture Book)

I saw Guion the Lion at a virtual Toy Fair this month, and I immediately fell in love with it! Here's a blurb from Amazon about the book: "Guion the Lion tells the story of an imaginative little lion who sees things a bit differently from his friends. That is, until they learn to appreciate his unique perspective and shift how they look at the world around them. Full of themes like empathy, curiosity, and adventure, Guion shows little readers (and bigger ones, too!) that appreciating differences and embracing others ideas can lead to unimaginable fun! There's beauty all around you if you open your eyes." It's filled with adorable, bright illustrations (I loved Guion's rainbow mane!). Hardcover, 28 pages, recommended for ages 5 and up. 

My Weird School Daze by Dan Gutman
(Fiction/Chapter Book)

My Weird School Daze is an awesome boxed set of 12 books by author Dan Gutman. Perfect for reluctant readers and word lovers alike, Dan Gutman's hugely popular My Weird School series has something for everyone. This set is a classic and has been around for a few years now, but never seems to lose its popularity! It features 12 paperback titles like Mrs. Dole is Out of Control and Mr. Tony is Full of Baloney. Recommended for ages 6-10, paperback boxed set.

The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes by Suzanne Collins
(Fiction/Young Adult Novel)

We finally had a chance to read Suzanne Collins' long awaited prequel to the Hunger Games, The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes. This story tells the tale of a young Coriolanus Snow, long before he became president of Panem and what his life was like before his rise to the top (it's not at all what you think). A surprise for us was the roll that Tigris, the eccentric cat-like shop owner, plays in the story. It definitely helps to read the Hunger Games trilogy before reading this one, but it really had us hooked (I read with my son, who is 12). Hardcover, recommended for ages 12 and up, 528 pages. 

Disney Baby Love, Hugs, Hearts - Jerrod Maruyama
(Fiction/Board Book)

I am a huge fan of Jerrod Maruyama's kawaii art, especially his Disney collaborations. Disney Baby Love, Hugs, Hearts is perfect for little hands and features Jerrod's adorable illustrations and simple, engaging text. This chunky board book is actually a set of three mini books and introduces babies and toddlers to the concept of seasons, hearts/shapes, hugs and emotions. New for Spring is his Hop, Hatch, Bloom, too! Recommended for babies to 2 years, 30 pages, board book.
