Early Readers & Picture Books
Good Guys, Bad Guys
Here come the bad guys,
green and scary–
But here come the good guys
Wearing fancy capes,
Don’t even try it—
An ode to imagination, as a brother and sister play pretend with the neighborhood kids in their backyard—dressing up as pirates, swimmers, cowboys, and more! In the make-believe world, the bad guys cause mischief and the good guys save the day. And who knows who they’ll be tomorrow?
“Rocklin… offers jaunty verse whose energy is amplified with crayonlike mixed-media art by Carpenter…and both bolster the wry conclusion to this lighthearted tale.”
I Say Shehechiyanu
Follow a little girl and her baby brother throughout the year as she says “Shehechiyanu”, the beautiful blessing for expressing thanks when something takes place for the first time, or when it happens again after a long time. I SAY SHEHECHIYANU, written by Joanne Rocklin and illustrated by Monika Filipina, is a beautiful picture book suitable for all Jewish festivities, celebrations, and the proud “first times” of childhood.
