Picture Books

This is the sweetest, silliest, cutest "I love you" sort of read aloud! The rhymes are skilled, funny, and charming and so are the lovely illustrations. Recommending for everyone! — Angela (RBB Staff)


Little Blue Truck is bringing Valentine's to all the animals, and each one is *just right,* making the animals so happy! A delightfully sweet book for Valentine's Day and for Little Blue Truck fans! Perfect to read aloud with ages 0-5. — Jaya (RBB Staff)


Middle Grade

Katie loves kitties! But is she ready for 217 cats, especially when some have special skills like knitting, creating mad beats, or computer hacking (used for ordering pizza—or jet engines—online)? And when the cats' person disappears, can they work together to find her, rescue her, and answer Katie's sneaking suspicion that she just might be the notorious super-villain, Mousetress (or even possibly the super-hero, Eastern Screech?) Great reading for middle school kids—and be sure to check out the cool end-pages! — Joan (RBB Staff)


Young Adult

It’s the summer before senior year of high school and Nala has many things to figure out. Where does she fit in? How does she navigate the changing relationships in her life? Who does she want to be in the world? Nala’s story includes a sweet romance, evolving friendships, wisdom from her elder family members, and many wonderful lists. All together they help Nala realize that the most revolutionary love of all is loving herself. Delightful, joyful, and inspiring. — Holly (RBB Staff)
