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.
NEON LEON: Leon can’t change color like the other chameleons and longs for a place to blend in.
WE LOVE DINOSAURS: Dinosaurs of all shapes, sizes, and colors are loved by kids.
BULLY: When a selfish bullfrog takes over a lily pond, the other residents decide to unite and take action. Love the cover!
STERLING, BEST DOG EVER: A little dog pretends to be a fork and other household things in order to find and keep a home. Adorable!
BRAVE ENOUGH FOR TWO: With Hoot by her side, Olive sets off on an adventure, even though she’s not brave. Excellent art!
TAKE A HIKE, MILES AND SPIKE: Miles and Spike take a hike through the forest, destroying the habitat as they go and rudely dismissing the forest creatures. Clever word play, and I like the colors!
TINY LITTLE ROCKET: A rocket takes a trip through the solar system, past the sun, and narrowly misses a meteor before returning to Earth. Striking art!
TESSA TAKES WING: Tessa plays and flies around her room while the rest of the family is asleep. Sweet!
