In my position as a technical processing assistant at the DeWitt Community Library, I catalog a lot of picture books. Unfortunately, I cannot review them all, but I do read them all and have assigned a 🙂 to my favorites. Below are a few I’ve cataloged recently. (Whenever possible, summaries have been taken directly from the books.)
Meet a cat named Tim and his friends in four short, fun, adventure-filled stories told with very few words, but lots of pictures and imagination.
🙂 Tabi, the little mouse who lives in the general store and cares for the toys, wants his friend Max, the blue dog, to find a good home.

🙂 From award-winning author Jerdine Nolen comes a tale of a little girl who wishes for her father to be home more, but she never expects her wish to come true the way it does.
🙂 Ruthie Tober’s family is known for the beautiful, warm mittens they knit so when she and her mother meet a deaf woman and her baby and give them shelter, Ruthie decides to design very special mittens for them.
Mousey diligently watches the cookie for his best friend Sam and protects it from pigeons and ants. But what will happen when a hungry cat appears and he’s not after the cookie?
🙂 Share a nighttime stroll down cobblestone streets with the charismatic gentleman bat.
