Small and Tall Tales of Extinct Animals by Helene Rajcak and Damien Laverdunt
This book is a quintessential gift book: it’s over-sized, it’s beautiful, and it’s a topic that perennially fascinates budding scientists.  Extinct animals from all over the globe are featured in this book as the author presents scientific facts alongside myths about each one. Adults and children alike will enjoy spending time examining the details of the drawings as they learn about the passenger pigeon and the giant moa, among other animals.
A Gold Star for Zog by Julia Donaldson
From the author and illustrator pair who brought you Room on the Broom and The Gruffalo comes a new and equally wonderful book: A Gold Star for Zog.  Zog tries really hard at all his endeavors at dragon school but he always manages to get a bump or bruise. Lucky for him, each time he needs help, a young girl appears and knows just what to do. You have to read it to find out if Zog gets his gold star– and to find out more about the helpful girl!  Told in rhyme, this one is sure to delight a variety of youngsters.
