Picture Books At The Library 227 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. ONE GIRL: As one girl reads one book, the world opens up to her and she discovers other places, lives, and possibilities. Rhyme WE WILL LIVE IN THIS FOREST AGAIN: When a thriving forest is swallowed by wildfire, its animal residents brace themselves and look to new beginnings. ALL BECAUSE YOU MATTER: A lyrical tribute to a young black child, filled with heart, hope, and affirmation, saying, you, dear child, matter. COW BOY IS NOT A COWBOY: When Goat Girl calls Merle a cowboy, he protests, but when the chickens escape the coop and Humdrum Farm is in need of a hero, Merle decides to live up to his new name. Funny! WE BELIEVE IN YOU: Celebrates the power and joy of believing in yourself and in one another. Rhyme/Sweet! POOKA & BUNNI: When Pooka knocks down her older sister Bunni’s pillow castle, Pooka uses her big imagination to fix it before Bunni returns. Love the art! THE LIBRARY BUS: In Afghanistan, Pari accompanies her mother on her library bus rounds, stopping at a village and a refugee camp so that girls there can exchange books and have a lesson in English. LOUIS: Tired of dangerous adventures with his human boy, a teddy bear decides to run away, but reconsiders when bedtime arrives. DINOS DON’T DO YOGA: When a yoga-loving dinosaur named Sam moves to town, rough-and-tumble Rex disapproves of his yoga pants and silly chants, and anyone who prefers tree pose to tussling. ELLIE’S DRAGON: When Ellie is very small, she finds a tiny dragon just hatched from its egg, but as Ellie grows up, and moves from dollhouses to dance parties with friends, Scratch the dragon begins to fade.
