What's New?

August 26, 2016

I'm trying for a picture book review blitz today.

Two White Rabbits, by Jairo Buitrago, pictures by Rafael Yockteng, and translated by Elisa Amado, tells the story of a little girl and her father trying to get to the United States.

Before Morning, by Joyce Sidman, illustrated by Beth Krommes, is an exquisite example of an invocation and will get some heartfelt reading this winter.

I just love Grumpy Pants, by Claire Messer, a toddler-friendly story about a penguin who washes his grumpiness away.

And The Monkey and the Bee, by C. J. Bloom, illustrated by Peter Raymundo is a simple chase story with big expressions which is also perfect for toddlers and beginning readers.

Happy Reading!
