Fun books for fall, let’s go!

Hello, Paw Patrol fans, I know you’re out there. You will like these titles from Nickelodeon, friends. “Skye’s Time to Fly” (A Little Golden Book, 2023, $5.99); “Power Up, Pups!” (Step Into Reading, Step 2, 2023, $5.99); “The Junior Patrollers” (Random House, 2023, $5.99); “The Official Storybook” (Random House, 2023, $12.99); and the very cool “Official Activity Book,” with puzzles, posters and stickers (Golden Books, 2023, $7.99).

“Are You Mad at Me?” by Tyler Feder, with art by Cody Feder (sisters and best friends), is a helpful picture book about a twitchy ostrich, Opal. (Rocky Pond Books, 2023, ages 5 and up, $18.99.) You know when you feel like everyone is mad at you, even when maybe (definitely, positively) they’re not? That’s Opal. Her family calls it “the noodles” because Opal, when she worries (and she worries about almost everything) gets a wobbly neck. Vivid, sweet art, and a great story. Listen to one who’s been there — it’s never too early to start talking about good, strong mental health.

“See You On the Other Side,” written by Rachel Montez Minor, with illustrations by Mariyah Rahman (Crown Books for Young Readers, 2023, $18.99). This beautifully illustrated picture book is a loving, thoughtful book about saying goodbye to those we care about, while still feeling their presence.

Besos y abrazos and talk more this week!
