How to be a T. Rex” byRyan North and Mike Lowery. An upROARiously funny take on following your wildest dreams, from the bestselling creator of Dinosaur Comics. 📚🌷 Being a regular old human is kind of a drag. That’s why Sal is not going to be a teacher or doctor or lawyer when she grows up. She is going to grow up to be an awesome Tyrannosaurus Rex. Her brother thinks it’s impossible, but Sal sure shows him! And in the beginning, being a T. Rex is AWESOME. But did you know that it’s kind of hard to make friends when you are a super-giant, super-loud, super-stompy dinosaur? If only there were a way for Sal to be 100% awesome, 100% of the time… ❤️ #books #penguinrandombooks #chapterbook#youngreader#bookdesign#bookdesigner #cover #coverart #art#design #bookstagram#bookstagrammer #igreads #instareads#nowreading #currentlyreading#bookstore #bookshop#lovebooks #bookworm #bookaddict#readingwithkids #kidsbookstagram#kidsbooks #ya #picturebooks#picturebook #fiction

“Do Frogs Drink Hot Chocolate? —How Animals Keep Warm” By Etta Kaner and John Martz @johnmartz .❄️❄️🎄When winter arrives, animals living in cold environments need to cope to survive. Do polar bears build homes? Do penguins snuggle with a friend? 🐧Yes! But their homes aren’t made of wood, and they don’t cuddle on a couch. Instead, these animals and many more have adapted in amazing ways to survive chilly weather. ❤️Written in a question-and-answer format, this interactive nonfiction book encourages kids to predict the answers and shout them out. Playful phrasing and comic illustrations make the content engaging for readers, who will gain newfound knowledge and an early understanding of adaptations in nature.⛄️📚
