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.
ON GULL BEACH: A boy chases after sea gulls as they play with a star fish.
BIG BOX LITTLE BOX: A curious cat investigates every box it can find and makes a friend along the way.
SHORTY & CLEM BLAST OFF: Clem won’t let Shorty help him build his spaceship.
LORETTA’S GIFT: Loretta tries hard to find the perfect gift for her new baby cousin.
PICNIC WITH OLIVER: While on a picnic, Philbert gets caught in a storm and Oliver must make a daring rescue.
HOW TO KNIT A MONSTER: After Mrs. Sheep insults Greta Goat’s knitting, Greta knits a wolf that swallows Mrs. Sheep whole.
I FEEL TEAL: A girl experiences many feelings, represented by colors, during the course of her day. Nice art!
STEGOTHESAURUS: Stegothesaurus has little in common with his fellow dinosaurs until he meets an allosaurus that’s as hungry for synonyms as he is. Super cute and clever!
