I catalog hundreds of new picture books each year, and I read as many of them as I can. Unfortunately, I can’t review them all, but I can share them. Below are a few recent titles. (Summaries have been taken directly from the books whenever possible.)
Through 20 life lessons, Miss Moon imparts her wisdom on how to raise happy, healthy, well-mannered dogs and humans.
Using die-cut pages, the story explores the shapes and colors of an apple tree through the passing of the seasons.
Little Monkey slips from the safety of the tall, green rain forest trees. Will she remember what Papa taught her about how to stay safe?
Sally tries to tell her family that a hippo, a tiger, zebras, and koalas are in their yard, but no one believes her.
While Bear enjoys a day at the beach, Chipmunk does not, but spending time with his good friend Bear makes it all worthwhile.
Little Why wants horns like Wildebeest, long legs like Giraffe, and spotty fur like Cheetah. Will he learn that he’s special just the way he is?
Tiger and Bear want to play a game of tag, but Lion just wants to finish the painting he’s been working on.
When the whole family gathers together, adventures are sure to follow–rowing down the river, telling ghost stories around the campfire, and learning to fish.
Blanche does not want to go to sleep. She wants to tumble and hop and horse around.
Members of a large group of animals, including a penguin, two rabbits, and a koala, disappear at an alarming rate, but the hungry lion remains.
