In my position as a technical processing assistant at the DeWitt Community Library, I catalog a lot of new 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.)
🙂 A tall, strong and well-trained police horse, Bunny is sent overseas at the beginning of World War I.
🙂 Sometimes when you’re most in need of friends, they will flock to you–or at least to your hat.
🙂 It’s time for therapy dog Lola’s annual checkup. Can she be big and brave for her examination?
Change isn’t easy for young boys and girls. And when change means moving to a new school, a new house, and away from friends, well that can be downright complicated!
🙂 A hilarious Scottish twist on a much-loved rhyme.
🙂 Snowman and his friends are in for an adventure–and then, a surprise.
Bob wanted a dog for his birthday. Instead he got a ghost, and he calls it Fluffy.
Sam has a new pet. It’s a TEMPER, and he found it on the playground.
When Arlo reads about Paris and the one the French call La Dame de Fer, Or Iron Lady, he decides it’s time to strike out on his first adventure.
Join Max in his dreams of being a world-class athlete–and see if he and his friends can win a real tournament too!
When Hana announces that she’ll be playing violin in the school talent show, her brothers laugh so hard they nearly fall out of a tree.
🙂 This playful farmyard caper about a shortsighted but well-meaning little dog is sure to become a read-aloud favorite.
