This beautifully illustrated book is a collection of all the wonderful and magical occurrences in nature in a year. Full of mindful and insightful activities, creatures, plants, and all the magical events that happen during fall, winter, spring, and summer. This book helps us remember that there’s childlike magic and wonder about the scientific reasons why things happen in the natural world.
It’s no surprise that us booksellers love books, especially when they’re about other books! This one is a special treat, containing so many fun facts while still being very easy and fun to read.

If there was a book that embodies the Wild Rumpus staff, this would be the book. Full of whimsical wonder and silly little gnomes, mushrooms galore, and lots of creatures, this book is not only informational about the world of gnomes but also full of insightful wisdom for anyone reading.

This is such a fun book of poems! For every day of the year there is a silly poem with a great rhyming scheme attached. From nature, animals, and just random silliness this is a great book to have in any library. Whimsical read aloud poems that will make you laugh anytime of the day.
This is hands-down my favorite book of 2023. Best known for his work in children’s literature, Jeffers has made a piece of art that is geared towards older readers, telling the tale of our human story. So far. It’s the story of where we’ve been and where we are and, more importantly, where we’re going. Reminding us that by working together and thinking beyond our own lifetimes then we can write the greatest chapter yet, together.
First off, the illustrations in this book alone are enough to make me love it. Second, the content is full of tender and reassuring advice that I wish I had when I was in my love-obsessed teen years. This book is a very inclusive approach to thinking about all the many different kinds of relationships there are to experience and the joy they bring.
For the bookworm in your life, this charming reference to all things reading is sure to make the perfect gift! With creative titles such as “The Armchair Acrobat” and “The Time-Honored Tree Leaner,” you’ll truly have your pick of options when it comes to where and how you’ll leaf through these playfully illustrated pages. You can also treat this book like a checklist and work your way through all 101 bookish poses (though, as it cautions you at the beginning, some should only be attempted by adults under the close supervision of a child!).
