Best of 2016: Part One!

It's been a marvelous year sharing stories with you, and this week we're spotlighting our top picks for 2016! Catch the buzz on these great books...
Will's Words by Jane Sutcliffe is such a cool book. Not only is it interesting to find out how many terms William Shakespeare came up with, BUT the added bonus of locating him in every magnificent illustration is extremely entertaining. Watch out, Waldo!



Read Fairday's full review, plus catch our Author Interview with Jane Sutcliffe to find out the story behind the story.


I recommend Soldier to anyone who likes to celebrate what makes us each unique and those who understand that creating a better world starts with personal acts of kindness.
