Somebunny Loves Me by Parry Gripp ages 4-8, Hardcover - Parry is an Emmy-winning singer-songwriter whose quirky, popular tunes, including “Nom, nom, nom” and “It’s Raining Tacos” have made his YouTube channel a smash hit with over 360 million views. He is an avid animal lover and his bunny Bruno is often the inspiration behind so many of his songs. In Somebunny Loves Me, Parry’s sweet and silly rhymes are cleverly written to share how children can best understand, appreciate and interact with a variety of fuzzy, feathered or scaly pals. Paired with adorable, full-page photographs, Parry also includes a personal note in the back of the book giving kids and their parents more tips on how to be good pet owners — from how to keep pets safe, clean and healthy to how to best interact with them and even pointers on how to make a pet music video. Check out the Somebunny Loves Me music video and sing along as you and your kids turn the pages (hopefully with their favorite pet by their side!): https://kids.nationalgeographic.com/explore/books/somebunny/

A World Together by Sonia Manzano ages 4-8, Hardcover - Sonia Manzano, Sesame Street's beloved character Maria, brings warmth and wit to this timely picture book that looks across cultures and generations to celebrate what unites us, wherever we come from. Manzano's lyrical prose combined with stunning photography of people from dozens of countries around the world explores how all of our lives are enriched by our geographic and cultural diversity. Kids see how people around the world look, dress, and spend their day, and learn that what we enjoy and value--friends, family, food, play--may sometimes look different, but deep down is the same wherever you go. This lovely picture book from a first-generation American affirms our common humanity as it presents the glorious similarities and differences that connect us all. It has an inspiring message: With laugher and love, we can help bring a world together. Enjoy a fun video of Sonia reading her book HERE
