Spring is here. Once you’re done with that happy dance, grab one of the season’s new picture books. Consider it sunshine for the mind.
A humongous hairy beast befriends a young villager, only to have the townspeople turn against him. Along with being full of chuckles, the heartwarming debut teaches the value of standing by the ones you love.
Without words, painterly pictures help you tell the story of a friendship blooming between a swim fin-clad girl and a web-footed stranger. When the pair starts to dance, you’ll have no trouble getting carried away.
When a crocodile interrupts the story of the ugly duckling, little readers take the action into their own hands. Engaging story prompts entice you to rock and shake the book until the big scaled villain “munches” his way out.
