 *DISCLOSURE* Thank you to the Pavilion Children's Books for providing product samples in order to facilitate this post.  All thoughts are strictly my own.

Build a Skyscraper by Paul Farrell

Ages 3-5

Glass, concrete, windows, walls, roofs, and more—create your own metropolitan masterpiece. Build a Skyscraper is the second in a new series of graphic-designed cards that turn the image of a skyscraper into a work of art.

This pack contains 64 cards (4 x 2¾ inches) in a variety of graphic designs and bold, eye-catching colors. Clever paper engineering allows you to slot the cards together, building up and out in whichever way you like! Also included is a short 8-page booklet, with descriptions of the key elements of a skyscraper and suggestions of how to build your masterpiece. You can go traditional or get abstract and construct your own crazy high-rise!

Educational, creative, mindful, and fun for the whole family. The sky’s the limit!

David Roberts' Delightfully Different Fairy Tales

Ages 3-6

The fabulous illustrator David Roberts has joined forces with his author sister, Lynn, to produce a humorous, stylish and empowering retelling of three classic fairy tales -- Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, and Rapunzel -- in David Roberts' Delightfully Different Fairy Tales 

A treasury of fairy tales with a difference – feminist, spunky and set in different decades of the 20th century, with funky clothes and recognizable settings.

This special collection includes a 1950s sci-fi nerd Sleeping Beauty who pricks her finger on a record player, in a story populated entirely with women and girls (no princes needed here!), a 1970s Rapunzel who lives in a tower block and whose friend plays in a rock band, a 1920s Cinderella with flapper girls, a fashion-conscious fairy godmother, and a night in an art deco ballroom.

These are all deliciously, delightfully different takes on the fairy tales we all know in a gorgeous hardback gift book with lots of period detail—it will be treasured for years to come.

The Three Wishes by Alan Snow

Ages 4-8

From the creator of The Boxtrolls comes a haunting, beautifully told, and stunningly illustrated Santa Claus origin story: The Three Wishes by Alan Snow.

A young boy is herding his family’s reindeer when the boy is drawn into a mysterious cave. The cave is the holder of eternal summer, looked after by three strange characters: a wooden creature, a bird, and a fish. Once entered, the cave cannot be left without time in the outside world standing still. In his sadness at not being able to leave, the boy is granted three wishes and chooses freedom, happiness, and time. He is told that they will all be granted—eventually.

After the first year of working hard in the summer cave, the boy is allowed to see his family in the outside world. Time stands still as he visits his parents, and he leaves gifts behind to show that he has visited. As the years go by, this annual visit continues, and he begins to call on not only his parents but more and more other families…and Christmas traditions, as we know them, start to be created.

A new Christmas classic to read again and again, beautifully written and illustrated by Alan Snow, author of Here be Monsters!, the novel behind the Academy-nominated 2014 film The Boxtrolls.

Challenge Everything: An Extinction Rebellion Youth Guide to Saving the Planet by Blue Sanford

Ages 12-17

Challenge Everything: An Extinction Rebellion Youth Guide to Saving the Planet by Blue Sandford is a timely new book from a teenage environmental activist who has been called the "British Greta Thunberg" and named one of "the UK’s most impressive young activists" by The Times.

Time is running out to prevent ecological collapse. The main concern of many young people is climate change and how to combat it, and Challenge Everything offers them a purpose–what to do, when to do it and why to do it. This manifesto is the only official handbook from Extinction Rebellion Youth -- a global movement of hundreds of thousands of passionate activists from all walks of life, including splinter groups for young people, like XR Youth, XR Families and XR Kids -- and will help you to change your life and the world for the better.

Written by Blue Sandford, the 17-year-old coordinator of Extinction Rebellion Youth London who has left school to dedicate her life to preventing climate change, this book will ask you to challenge everything–challenge government (protest and take peaceful action where necessary), challenge business (decide who you want to support, decide who you want to boycott), and above all to challenge yourself–how can you change your life to make a difference.

Filled with stories, essays, slogans and inspiring illustrations, this book will cover consuming, actioning, boycotting, campaigning, striking, questioning, rewilding and reconnecting with our planet. It will help the reader to change their mindset, become independent, question everything, and challenge themselves.

Whether you have little readers or older readers, Pavilion Children's Books has some really great books this fall!  Get kiddos excited about reading and learning with these fun titles!
