New Picture Books

 

Here’s a few picture books that you’ll be seeing on the NEW shelf!

Little Red Riding Sheep by Linda Ravin Lodding

Arnold, a sheep, (a Heidschnucke sheep, to be exact!), keeps inserting himself into this re-telling of the timeless fairy tale, Little Red Riding Hood.  There’s a few problems, however; he’s a bit too big and fluffy to be playing the part of Little Red, he’s afraid of the woods, and well, he’s not afraid to talk back.

The Mermaid by Jan Brett

Kiniro is a young mermaid that comes upon a house made of coral and seashells, and makes herself at home by eating a just-right breakfast, sitting in a pretty chair, and resting on a comfy bed.  When the octopus family returns home to find her asleep, she quickly leaves, but not without leaving a special gift for baby octopus!

Say Zoopby Herve Tullet

If you had fun with the author’s other books such as “Press Here”, “Mix It Up” or “Let’s Play” – you’re sure to love his newest creation.  Starting with saying out loud a simple “AH!” and “OH!”,  keep turning  the pages to take an incredible trip of sound, motion and imagination, culminating in the word “ZOOP!”  Sure to have you laughing out loud, and perhaps a bit breathless, by the end.

World Pizza by Cece Meng

When Mama searches the sky for a wishing star and sneezes while making her wish, her wish for world peace becomes world “pizza”.  When pizzas start dropping from the sky all over the world, love and kindness fill everyone’s hearts.

Grandma’s Tiny House by JaNay Brown-Wood

Counting from 1 (Grandma)  to 15 (hungry grandkids) this sweet rhyming story celebrates families, food, and fun.  Will everyone fit in Grandma’s tiny house! Count your way through to the end to find out.
