1. The Mitten

Read Review
The bestselling modern classic, in a sturdy board book edition perfect for little hands.

When Nicki drops his white mitten in the snow, he goes on without realizing that it is missing.

One by one, woodland animals find it and crawl in; first, a curious mole, then a rabbit, a badger and others, each one larger than the last. Finally, a big brown bear is followed in by a tiny brown mouse and what happens next makes for a wonderfully funny climax.

As the story of the animals in the mitten unfolds, the reader can see Nicki in the borders of each page, walking through the woods unaware of what is going on.

In her distinctive style, Jan Brett brings the animals to life with warmth and humor, and her illustrations are full of visual delights and details faithful to the Ukrainian tradition from which the story comes.

“Grandmother knits snow-white mittens that Nikki takes on an adventure. Readers will enjoy the charm and humor in the portrayal of the animals as they make room for each newcomer in the mitten and sprawl in the snow after the big sneeze.”
-The Horn Book

Read Review
The practical, comforting, honest, and hilarious bestseller for moms-to-be, with more than one and a half million copies in print!

Your doctor gives you medical advice. Your mother buys you baby clothes. But who can give you the real skinny when you’re pregnant?

Your girlfriends, of course—at least, the ones who’ve been through the exhilaration and exhaustion, the agony and ecstasy of pregnancy. Four-time delivery room veteran Vicki Iovine talks to you the way only a best friend can—in the book that will go the whole nine months for every mother-to-be. In this revised and updated edition, get the lowdown on all those little things that are too strange or embarrassing to ask, practical tips, and hilarious takes on everything pregnant.

What really happens to your body—from morning sickness and gas to eating everything in sight—and what it’s like to go from being a babe to having one.

The Many Moods of Pregnancy—why you’re so irritable/distracted/tired/lightheaded (or at least more than usual).

Staying Stylish—You may be pregnant, but you can still be the fashionista you’ve always been (or at least you don’t have to look like a walking beachball)—wearing the hippest designers and proudly showing off your bump.

Pregnancy is Down To a Science—from in vitro fertilization to scheduled c-sections, there are so many options, alternatives, and scientific tests to take that being pregnant can be downright confusing!

And much more! For a reassuring voice or just a few good belly laughs, turn to this straight-talking guide on what to really expect when you’re expecting.

Read Review
Publishers Weekly #1 bestseller, Jan Brett’s heartwarming story of Hedgie the hedgehog’s misadventures in the snow has become a family favorite.

When Lisa’s woolen stocking flies off the closeline, Hedgie can’t resist poking his nose in. He tries to pull it out, but the stocking is stuck on his prickles. At first the other animals laugh at the sight of him, but when they realize they might like something to keep their heads dry and ears warm, too, even more silliness ensues.

Like its companion The Mitten, The Hat is now available as a wonderful board book to share with young children.

“Brett’s signature art introduces animal characters as endearing and expressive as those who congregated in her earlier book’s expandable white mitten.” —Publishers Weekly

“A clever and appealing picture book. . . . The pictures, story, and subject matter make this a natural for sharing aloud.” —School Library Journal

Finally—A Pregnancy Book That Won’t Put Men to Sleep
My Boys Can Swim! tells real men everything they really want to know about pregnancy, such as: How much is it going to cost? Why does your wife primp before seeing her doctor when she hasn’t put a stitch of make-up on for you in months? And, most important, what’s it going to do to your sex life?
This rollicking, laugh-out-loud book is for expectant dads in search of bottom-line pregnancy information, without all that boring touchy-feely stuff you find in those books written for women. Inside you’ll discover helpful—and hilarious—information and insights on such topics as:
The Maternity Wardrobe: “A key part of the maternity wardrobe is maternity underwear—parachute-like undies big enough to fit an NFL defensive lineman.”
Baby Names: “Don’t give your kids mockable names like Thaddeus, which is Greek for ‘I’m a dork and should be beaten up.'”
The Birth: “No one told me it’s normal that babies’ heads can be misshapen at birth. I was convinced that my wife gave birth to Veldar, the conehead.”

Read Review
She’s hilarious. She’s also wise and full of empathy. And she helps new mothers maintain the one thing they can’t survive without-a sense of humor. Cynthia Copeland, a mother of three (and author of Really Important Stuff My Kids Have Taught Me, with 325,000 copies in print), knows the real poop-figuratively and literally-on being a new mother, and she has the wit, skill, and generosity to share it.

Illustrated throughout with the author’s wonderful cartoons, The Diaper Diaries chronicles the first year of motherhood, from the hospital stay (nominees for the world’s worst labor coach anyone?) to baby’s first birthday and contemplating the unimaginable-having another. There are lists, quizzes, timelines, charts, and real-life stories. Birth announcement faux pas. Names and nicknames and what they really mean. Pacifier tales. A guide to Nana-speak. How a 4-mile car trip can take 2 hours. Why it’s impossible to get to work without finding spit-up or rice cereal somewhere on your clothing. Ten reasons to be happy you’re up at 3:15 a.m.

And, with Mr. Phrenology-like illustrations, a section on the new mother’s brain before and after baby, featuring: The Travel Section (Then: How to flirt your way into first class. Now: How to sweet talk your jogging stroller onto the plane), The Television Section (Then: How to tell Carrie from Samantha from Miranda from Charlotte. Now: How to tell Laa-Laa from Po from Dipsy from Tinky Winky), and The Sex Section (Then: Exact location of G-spot. Now: ________).
