EDMOND — A sampling of new children's and young adult books now available in the market:

‘COLD SNAP’

BY EILEEN SPINELLI

It’s cold in the town of Toby Mills. The thermometer is sinking toward zero, and the icicle hanging from the nose of General Toby’s statue is growing closer to the ground.

The newspaper headline reads “COLD SNAP!” The people of the town are losing hope — and the feeling in their toes — until the mayor’s wife saves the day with a toasty treat.

With a fun snow-day recipe included in the back, this playful, heartwarming story about neighbors coming together is the perfect holiday gift.

Ages 5-8.



‘LEMONADE IN WINTER: A BOOK ABOUT TWO KIDS COUNTING MONEY’

BY EMILY JENKINS

A lemonade stand in winter?

Yes, that’s exactly what Pauline and John-John intend to have, selling lemonade and limeade — and also lemon-limeade.

With a catchy refrain (Lemon lemon LIME, Lemon LIMEADE! Lemon lemon LIME, Lemon LEMONADE!), plus simple math concepts throughout, here is a read-aloud that’s great for storytime and classroom use.

Emily Jenkins is the author of the Toys Trilogy, which includes “Toys Go Out,” “Toy Dance Party,” and most recently, “Toys Come Home.” She is the author of numerous other books for children, including “Sugar Would Not Eat It” and “Five Creatures.”

Ages 3-7.
