Good Night, Wheedle, by Stephen Cosgrove, illustrated by Robin James. The magic and playfulness of Wheedle on the Needle retold in a board-book format that will introduce the youngest of readers to Seattle’s very own blinking nose in the sky.
Three Bears of the Pacific Northwest, by Richard Vaughan and Marcia Crews, illustrated by Jeremiah Trammell. Adapted from the children’s book of the same name, this board book will allow readers to explore the Pacific Northwest with Black Bear and Brown Bear as they help their new friend, Blue Bear, find his way home.
Ages 4 to 8
Bartholomew Quill: A Crow’s Quest to Know Who’s Who, by Thor Hanson, illustrated by Dana Arnim. What’s more quintessentially Seattle than a crow with an identity crisis? Follow Bartholomew as he journeys through the animal kingdom in search of what kind of animal he is. Blending rhymes with fun science facts about a number of animals, Bartholomew teaches and inspires.
Ages 5 to 9
Journey: Based on the True Story of OR7, The Most Famous Wolf in the West, by Emma Bland Smith, illustrated by Robin James. Based on the 2,000-mile trek of California’s first wild wolf in nearly a century, Journey is the fictionalized tale of one wild wolf and one little girl who has selected the name that she hopes can keep the wolf safe. Suggestions for further reading, maps, timelines and other resources are icing on this picture-book cake.
