New Books for Children: Thursday, August 4

The Macedon Public Library is fully open for in-person visits. Computers are available and the Discovery Room is also open. Masks are strongly encouraged for all patrons, even if you have been vaccinated. We will continue to offer “Grab and Go” services for those who prefer to place their books on hold online and then pick them up in the cabinet outside the library.

Here are a few of the new books for children that have come to the library recently. We invite you to check them out!

The Ocean

Join the Cat in the Hat and Things One and Two as they explore the ocean, from the sandy shore to the deep sea! Along the way, babies and toddlers will learn fun facts about fish, marine mammals (like dolphins and whales), mollusks (like clams), invertebrates (like octopus and jellyfish), crustaceans (like crabs and lobsters), and much more! Almost as much fun as dipping your toes in the water, this is the perfect book for summer reading, vacations at the shore, and trips to the beach! Illustrated in bright Seussian style and reviewed for accuracy by noted experts, there’s no better way to introduce informational texts or the natural world to pre-readers than with the Cat in the Hat—someone who knows a LOT about having fun! For ages baby-three years.

Little Pups in Big Trucks

Introducing an irresistible new board book series filled with cute pups, big construction trucks, and laugh-out-loud humor! It’s the first day of puppy school and Dig Doug, Puddles, and Cheddar can’t wait to start digging, building, and loading in their trucks. But when their teacher, Miss Polly, gets stuck under some rocks, they’ll have to come together and use teamwork to get her free! Closing their eyes to make the rocks disappear doesn’t work . . . so which of Miss Polly’s lessons can Dig Doug, Puddles, and Cheddar save her? Beloved children’s book author Bob Shea and illustrator Brian Won have created an endearing new board book series with the cutest construction workers around. For ages baby-three years.

Rumble, Rumble, Dinosaur

Wake up dinos, time to roar.


Follow along with a whole host of different dinosaurs as they go through one exciting dino day! Join the friendly stegosaurus, the gigantic diplodocus, the fearsome T. Rex, and others as they roar their way from morning to bedtime!
This text is set to the tune of Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star, making it perfect for storytime and reading aloud. With bright colors, playful rhymes, and plenty of dinosaurs, this adventure provides endless fun for dino fans both big and small. Little ones will love singing along to the tune of a favorite nursery rhyme! For ages baby-three years.
