Bear’s Loose Tooth by Karma Wilson

In this Classic Board Book edition of Bear’s Loose Tooth, Bear’s friends help him deal with his first loose tooth!

From a cave in the forest
came a “MUNCH, MUNCH, CRUNCH!”
as Bear and his friends
all nibbled on their lunch.

Bear and his friends are munching on their lunch when all of sudden… Bear feels something wiggling and wobbling in his mouth. Oh no! What can it be? It’s Bear’s first loose tooth!

In this sweet story, Bear’s friends ease his concerns about his wiggly, wobbly tooth and help him understand that losing a baby tooth is perfectly natural. This funny and reassuring story–now available as a Classic Board Book–will delight little ones!


Good-bye Winter, Hello Spring! by Kazuo Iwamura

A beloved story, now available in English, from Japanese master of children’s book illustration Kazuo Iwamura

When spring comes, it melts the snow. Where will all the water go?

The first harbingers of spring can be seen in the forest–as the wet snow begins to melt. The little squirrels Mick, Mack, and Molly can’t believe that snow can turn into water. That is, until they discover a floating tree and use it as a raft.

This gentle adventure, told in rhyme, is a wonderful celebration of nature and friendship.
