Staff Pick of the Month

When Pluto gets the call from scientists back on Earth telling him he’s no longer an actual planet, he’s heartbroken.  Pluto takes readers on a tour through the solar system to meet all the true planets and commiserate about his demotion.  During his humorous journey, fun facts are shared along the way.  You’ll be rooting for Pluto from beginning to end, because planet or not, he’s still special too!

Featured Book Trailer

Dr. Seuss's Horse Museum is based on an unfinished manuscript discovered by Seuss's widow in his studio.  The book is a tour of how different artists see horses and how those different visions lead to the creation of unique art.  Illustrator Andrew Joyner studied the late author’s sketches to create the illustrations that pay homage to Seuss’s artistic style and energy.
