Can’t bear to read the same book one more night in a row? We asked our friends at Harper Collins for their suggestions to help freshen up story time. Here, five different titles hand-selected by their editors. Add one or all to your repertoire.  Because reading with your kids should never have to feel monotonous.

Nose to Toes, You are Yummy!  by Tim Harrington

Sing and dance along with tigers and pandas in this colorful, interactive picture book. An accompanying free song is available online, and step-by-step dance moves (learn to do the Yummy Dance!) are outlined in the back. Needless to say, you probably don’t want to save this energetic story for bedtime.


If You Plant a Seed  by Kadir Nelson

Even the smallest acts of kindness can make a big impact. And there’s something endearing about learning about compassion and generosity (as well as planting and growing) from a bunny and his little mouse friend.


Louise Loves Art  by Kelly Light

This one’s for the creative kiddos. Meet Louise, who loves art. She also loves her brother, Art. Yep, things are going to get crazy.


Otter in Space  by Sam Garton

Teddy and Otter from I Am Otter are back. This time they’re headed to the moon—and they’re solving some problems along the way.


Cat and Bunny  by Mary Lundquist

In her debut picture book, Mary Lundquist introduces us to best friends Cat and Bunny. It’s always been the two of them, but now someone else wants to play. Navigating new friendships has never been so adorable.
