Like High Fidelity for millennials. When no other book sounds good, look no further! A journey filled with humor is the perfect read.

Little Labors by Rivka Galchen

This genre-bending memoir on the first year of motherhood is the smartest, joyful-est book on the subject I’ve ever read. The perfect gift for any new mom–and anyone who likes really smart books.

Amelia's Notebook (series) by Marissa Moss

Section: Early Reader

This smart original series is perfect for anyone who’s ever had to move and start over and anyone interested in how to start recording their life in works and pictures. Inspired me a lot as a young artist!

A tremendously fun read for the independent reader, mystery lover or puzzler-solver.

Greenglass House by Kate Milford

Section: Middle Grades

A smugglers’ inn, unexpected guests, disappearing luggage, and many mysteries to uncover. A perfect summer read for a confident young reader, but also a wonderful family read-aloud for kids 5 and up.

The Dog that Nino Didn’t Have by Edward van de Vendel

Section: Picture Books

The gorgeous art in this book is matched with a simple, touching story about the imagination, loneliness, and growing up. The illustrations should not be missed!
