‘TAKING CARE OF MAMA RABBIT’
BY ANITA LOBEL
The ideal gift for baby showers and Mother’s Day, “Taking Care of Mama Rabbit,” by Caldecott Honor winner Anita Lobel tells the sweet and cozy story about ten little rabbits pitching in to make their sick mom feel better.
Poor Mama! Mama Rabbit is too sick to leave her bed. When Papa Rabbit leaves home to get her some medicine, the ten little rabbit children take it upon themselves to help her feel better.
One by one they bring her treats from around the house, including a steaming cup of hot chocolate, a cuddly toy, a good book, and a shiny necklace.
Before long, Mama Rabbit begins to feel better even without the help of medicine.
From Anita Lobel, a Caldecott Honor-winning artist and the author of “10 Hungry Rabbits,” this is a fun family story about working together to boost happiness when spirits are low.
‘CHEESIE MACK IS NOT EXACTLY FAMOUS’
BY STEVE COLTER
Cheesie Mack is back! In the fourth book of the silly middle grade series by Steve Cotler, “Cheesie Mack Is Not Exactly Famous,” Cheesie returns with another hilarious adventure perfect for reluctant readers and fans of comic books.
Cheesie and his best friend, Georgie, are exploring a construction site when they find a weird-looking…thingie…sticking out of the muddy ground. Whatever it is, it’s very old. And very valuable!
Before they know it, Cheesie and Georgie discover they’re in possession of an object that dates all the way back to Colonial times. They’re instant celebrities! At least at school.
Will Cheesie and Georgie hold on to the ancient artifact and the fame it brings, or give it away for the good of all? Only time will tell.
Featuring black-and-white illustrations from Douglas Holgate, the Cheesie Mack series is chock full of age-appropriate themes like friendship, honesty, and even evil older sisters!
Whether they are new to the series or committed fans, readers will jump right into Cheesie’s latest and not-so-average middle school adventure. Readers of “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” and “The Name of the Book is Secret” will love Cheesie’s wacky lists, drawings, and made-up words as he tells the story of the time he became famous! Sort of.
