Picture Books At The Library 35

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 little boy identifies what makes his dog so special.

Illustrations and easy-to-read text relate a trip to the beach that features a man in a funny hat–or hat on a funny man, a sandy lunch and swimsuit, and a high-flying kite.

🙂 Duck is finally going on vacation. He has a beach chair, a book, and peace and quiet. Well, almost.

🙂 A little crab is in a bad mood, but his mother assures him that everyone feels a bit crabby at times, and that when his mood changes they will have all sorts of fun.

Part-dinosaur, part-truck monsters called Dinotrux take a vacation to cool off at the beach, where they have to work together to build a sand castle and to rescue a friend.

Billy’s wild imagination gets him into trouble at school, but a creative writing contest could be the perfect opportunity for him to shine.

🙂 Hello! It’s me–the housefly. Open my book and take a look inside. There’s never a dull moment!

A family can be many things, in this story that introduces numbered groups from one to ten.

Fox and her friends are building a playhouse. Everything goes smoothly until bossy Moose tromps in and tries to be in charge. When Moose’s bossing causes the project to go awry, can the friends work as a team to come up with a solution?

🙂 Fergus is only a little puppy, but he wants to know what he should be when he grows up. His friends all have different ideas and it seems there’s a lot more to being a dog than he first thought!

Cordelia spends a day at the beach with her dinosaur friends.

🙂 Find your own spirit and take a journey with Ally-saurus as she learns to navigate the wild world of school.
