Picture Books At The Library 166

At The Library Too

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.


ANGEL IN BEIJING: A girl finds a white cat and takes her all over the city of Beijing on her bicycle.


LUCY AND THE STRING: When Lucy sees a string and gives it a yank, she’s surprised by what she finds on the other end.


HOW TO BE A LION: Leonard the lion and his friend Marianne the duck stand up for themselves against a pride of lion bullies.


T. REX TIME MACHINE: When two hungry dinosaurs jump into a time machine, they’re transported to present day.


NECK & NECK: Leopold the giraffe is the star of the zoo until a bobbing rival ruins everything. Funny!


THE DRAGON AND THE NIBBLESOME KNIGHT: Mistaken identity allows two sworn enemies–a dragon and a knight–to become friends. Great art!


A WEREWOLF NAMED OLIVER JAMES: One moonlit night, Oliver unexpectedly turns into a werewolf. Fun, and I like the use of color!
