The Thank You Book by Mo Willems
Gerald and Piggie’s final book is filled with gratitude for everyone, but will someone be left out of the thank-o-rama?
Ghosts by Raina Telgemeier
Adjusting to a new town is hard enough for Cat. Not only is she trying to make new friends, figuring out how to get along with her neighbor, and creating a social life for herself without her little sister butting in, but she also is going to have to figure out how to live in a town filled with ghosts! The relationship between the sisters in this book is so realistic and the art, as always, is amazing!
The Airport Book by Lisa Brown
As a family takes to the friendly skies, no one know what happened to Monkey except the little girl who packed him (with his tail hanging out of the suitcase)! Follow along in this Knuffle Bunny-esque narrative to see if Monkey is reunited with his girl. More than just an introduction to the airport, the story is a look at the wide world itself.
Meltdown! by Jill Murphy
Parents everywhere can relate to this tale of the evolution of a child’s world-class tantrum. The illustration style is a bit old-school, but the interactions of Mom and daughter are spot-on, and my daughter clearly identified with the tantrum-ing Roxy.
