TC-VIB Picks for Kids (Very Impressive Books)

 
Every now and then we encounter a new children's book or series that we’re so excited about we want to broadcast it from the rooftop. We've created the Kids' TC VIB (very impressive book) to highlight real stand-outs among the many delightful and meaningful new editions for young readers.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Our latest selection for this honor is:
 
Otto the Owl Who Loved Poetry by Vern Kousky
"Otto the owl was an aesthete.  He didn't like to roost and hunt like the other owls; he liked to recite poetry and make friends.  When the other owls overheard Otto reciting, they made fun of him and so he ran away and composed a poem to the moon - a poem about their shared lonely states.  When this poem is overheard by the mice of the forest, Otto is cheered on and word spreads quickly of his passion for poetry.  Otto becomes brave and recites to the other owls; even a mouse recites a lovely cheese poem.  Poetry is meant to be shared with everyone." ~Kate
