Picture Books At The Library 99

PB at the library 2

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.) Check your local library or bookstore for availability.

There are lots of awesome new titles in this batch!


Excavator, Bulldozer, Crane Truck, Dump Truck, and Cement Mixer will all need to work together as they tackle their biggest job yet–a massive building.


Kids hunt for clues in the details of the lineups to discover who stepped in paint, who forgot shoes, who got stuck in the tree trunk and more.


Two mice set off on a storytelling adventure that takes them through cavernous caves, atop crazy giraffes, and over palace walls.


Mouse is in for a surprise when he picks the wrong rock to stand on as he starts to paint.


A grandmother uses every creative means of transportation necessary to deliver cookies to her grandson on his birthday.


Born deep in the ocean, Kelp is not like the other narwhals and one day, when he spies a creature on land that looks like him, he learns why.


A perfect day means different things to different animals in Bert’s backyard.


More than anything, Lola wants a cat, but first she must learn how to care for one.


In a body of water warmed by the spring sun, a tadpole changes into a froglet and eventually into a frog.



A spirited celebration of the love and affection we feel for our most treasured books.

When the sun rises, a young boy prepares for his greatest adventure…morning.


With a drip drop plip plop the rain starts–just a sprinkle at first, but as the storm builds, one lone fox seeks shelter.

Ordinarily, famous explorer Sir Sebastian is in command of every adventure, but this time, something seems a bit fishy.


Bill a tugboat and Mabel a barge go up and down the choppy river together.


Being a family is hard when you’re homeless and you live with your mom in one shelter while your dad lives in another.


A young girl tells what it’s like to live with and take care of her dog Sophie.

    I have to thank you, actually, one of the libraians from my local branch thanks you as well. I place a hold on as many of the titles you list as possible. Even with reading everything from 12×12 and all the other blogs and sites, I always find some gems from your list. The librarian always comments on my check outs and then checks them out for her son’s preschool. Love your blog!
