Don't forget to Pin this post for later! You can never have too many book suggestions as far as I'm concerned.

Picture Books: Senorita Mariposa

Senorita Mariposa by Ben Gundersheimer takes a look at the extraordinary journey of the beautiful monarch butterfly from Canada to Mexico. The book is presented in both english and spanish, giving young readers even more opportunities to learn. Recommended for ages 2-5 years (but I'll be purchasing a copy for myself!), 32 pages, hardcover.

Board Books: You're My Little Pumpkin Pie 

You're My Little Pumpkin Pie, illustrated by Natalie Marshall, not only has adorable and colorful illustrations, but it also features fun die-cut shapes that little hands will love. You can also purchase other books in the 'You're My Little' series (like You're My Little Latke and You're My Little Firecracker just to name a few). Board Book, 18 pages, baby-2 years.

Non-Fiction: Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls: 100 Inspiring Young Changemakers

Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls: 100 Inspiring Young Changemakers by Jess Harriton is not just for kids (and not just for girls!). Even adults will appreciate this beautiful collection of stories about inspiring women like Greta Thunberg, Bethany Hamilton, Bindi Irwin, Zendaya, and the Linda Lindas. They’ll also meet up-and-coming powerhouses like inventor Vinisha Umashankar, sustainable fashion designer Marine Serre, stuntwoman Sadiqua Bynum, filmmaker Taegen Yardley, poet Alexandra Huynh, and environmental activist Helena Gualinga. With a foreword by conservationist and TV personality Bindi Irwin, 100 Inspiring Young Changemakers features the work of authors, artists, and editors aged 30 and under. Each story is told in the engaging fairy tale style that has made this series a success. The stories are paired with bold, full-page portraits created by young female and nonbinary artists from around the world. Makes a great gift, in this mom's opinion, too! Recommended for ages 6 and up, hardcover, 240 pages.

Graphic Novel: P.I. Butterfly - Gone Guppy 

P.I. Butterfly (Gone Guppy) is a cute graphic novel from Karen Kilpatrick. It's a fun mystery told in graphic novel form (great for reluctant readers or comic book/manga fans). It's a unique book in that it not only tells a story through fun text and illustrations, it also encourages kids to problem-solve like real private investigators using analytical and critical thinking skills and observation skills. P.I. Butterfly herself is a lovable and funny character and readers will enjoy the surprise ending. Recommended for grades 1-4, paperback, 128 pages.

YA Chapter Book: Gravebooks 

Gravebooks, by J.A. White, is the sequel to the creepy hit story, Nightbooks, which was actually made into a Netflix movie (and you know I'm going to tell you that the book was way better).  I absolutely adored Gravebooks. Our favorite characters from the first story are back (especially Lenore, I just love her) and the plot is unique and creative. This time we actually get to read some short stories written by Alex that are included in the Gravebooks chapters. Some of them are quite spooky - like a modern day Tales from the Crypt collection! Perfect for fans of Goosebumps or other creepy tales, and of course, a must-read for fans of the first novel. Hardcover, 272 pages, recommended for ages 8-12.

Adult Fiction: Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow

Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow by Gabrielle Zevin is a brilliant book, and I fear that I'll ruin it by telling you too much. So here's the "official" blurb from the publisher about this story: In this exhilarating novel by the best-selling author of The Storied Life of A. J. Fikry two friends—often in love, but never lovers—come together as creative partners in the world of video game design, where success brings them fame, joy, tragedy, duplicity, and, ultimately, a kind of immortality. Hardcover, 416 pages.
