Editor's Letter

Someone said this beautifully 'we cannot open a book without learning something,' indeed I find the maxim to be true. Each time we pick a book and read, we improved our lives by living in the author's world, on how the writer perceives the world, learning the lesson the author wants to impart. Last Thanksgiving, I've been reading The Giving Tree, Shel Silverstein's classic children's book as an assignment, reading the book to my nephews and nieces. As you may remember, it's about a tree and a young boy who loves to climb it and rest in its shade. As the boy gets older, the tree gives him anything he wants―even the tree's  own trunk to be carved into a boat to sail away. Now, after many years, the 'boy' comes back as an old man and the tree despairs that he has nothing left to give.“ I do not need much now, just a place to rest .”  My voice always quavers each and every time I get to the last page; the idea that one could give so selflessly and get nothing in return is so inspiring.

In this Gift Giving season, in partnership with our trade partners, we also hope to give. We are currently running freemiums to the first 30 chosen titles. Cover Feature program is set to run until March 2021. For inquiry, please email Isa at [email protected]

“I've been reading Mr. Moon, Mr. Moon by Anna Arrigo to my 5 year-old  son. I find the book endearing. If not for the email sent to me by Anna's publicist at FPB, I wouldn't have found this book. I hope you can feature Mr Moon Mr Moon and help us find new books worthy to read!”― Jocelyn B.

Jack Prelutsky's My Parents Think I'm Sleeping


From acclaimed poet Jack Prelutsky and illustrator Yossi Abolafia, My Parents Think I'm Sleeping is the perfect book to get young readers excited about bedtime.

This Level 3 I Can Read book is a funny collection of poems about a boy who should be sleeping, but manages to find more than just storybooks and his model rocket kit to keep him awake.

From reading under the covers to watching shadows dance on the wall, these fourteen charming verses show that a child's life begins at bedtime!

The Day You Begin by Jacqueline Woodson.
