Lots of great new kids’ books out today!  Here are some of my favorites:

The Secret Circus

by Johanna Wright

(Roaring Brook, hardcover, $16.95)

In this beautiful, textural picture book, mice travel to a secret circus that only they know about.

Buy this book from your local independent bookseller!

Palindromania!

by Jon Agee

(Farrar, Straus, Giroux, paperback, $6.96)

I love this book! Kids will be totally amazed by how many palindromes are possible (“Salad? Alas!”).  Even the price is a palindrome!

Fancy Nancy: Explorer Extraordinaire!

by Jane O’Connor, illustrated by Robin Preiss Glasser

(HarperCollins, hardcover, $12.99)

It’s true, I love Fancy Nancy. In this newest installment, we learn just how fancy the outdoors can be!

    I’ll have to check out Palindromania! We’re big fans of “Mom and Dad are Palindromes!”

    My favorite palindrome is on a Potter Style card from Amy Krause Rosenthal:

    “Wonton?”
    “Not now!”

    (you need to see the drawing that goes with it).
