Picture Books At The Library 214 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. I AM BROWN: A joyful celebration of the skin you’re in–of being brown, of being you, and all the amazing things you can do. MARGOT AND THE MOON LANDING: Margot loves talking about space and the moon landing, but nobody around her seems to care or will even listen, causing Margot great frustration. NATSUMI’S SONG OF SUMMER: When Natsumi’s cousin visits from America, she can’t wait to share everything she loves–summertime festivals, the seaside, fireworks, and especially the cicadas. BRICK BY BRICK: As a little boy watches his father, a bricklayer, work hard to build the city, both dream of building a house of their own. DO NOT EAT THE GAME!: A girl tries to play a game with monsters, but it quickly turns into chaos when they don’t follow the rules. I’M NOT A GIRL: Nobody seems to understand that Hannah is not a girl, but a birthday wish, a new word, and a stroke of courage might be just what Hannah needs to show the world who he really is. HURRY UP!: After rushing around all day long, at home and at school, a child learns to slow down, breathe, and appreciate the natural world before going to bed. Rhyme LONE WOLF: So many people think Maple is a wolf that she starts to believe them, but after exploring the world outside her home, she returns to her pack. THAT’S MY CARROT!: In the garden, each bunny works on its own side of the fence, but one day, something unusual grows between them and they both claim it as theirs. CORAL: A disagreement between Coral, Filly, and Manta, three young mermaids who work together to build and safeguard the reef that is their home, must quickly be set right, or else it’s the reef that will suffer. RUNAWAY SIGNS: When all the street signs decide to take a vacation, their absence causes chaos throughout town, and they soon discover how important their jobs really are. THE NIGHT IS FOR DARKNESS: Celebrate the wondrous beauty of the natural world at night as one family moves to a new home.
