Little Bo Peep and Her Bad, Bad Sheep by A.L. Wegwerth & Luke Flowers
This one made my son laugh so hard I thought he was going to fall out of his chair. He loves absolute ridiculous silliness and this fits the bill. It begins with "Little Bo Peep has lost her sheep" in the most traditional way, but the pages are quickly overrun by every Mother Goose rhyme and character you can imagine. Follow Bo Peep's sheep as they make all sorts of mischief with the other nursery rhyme characters and laugh as the narrator loses their patience. At the end you will even find four pages of nursery rhymes and characters to search for on the proceeding pages. A hooting hullabaloo that will tickle your silly one's fancy. 3+
Too Many Carrots by Katy Hudson
This book is hilarious in the sweetest way possible. Bunny loves carrots but he has amassed such a collection that his cozy burrow has become a little too cozy. To solve his problem, he goes in search of another home. Turtle, Bird, Squirrel and Beaver all offer to share their homes, but none of them can accommodate Bunny's impressive collection of carrots. Eventually they come to a solution that is both obvious and perfect. The illustrations are my favorite part of this darling book. The characters are soft and expressive. The colors are muted but cheerful. This book is pure Spring-time delight from cover to cover. 2+
Your Fantastic Elastic Brain Stretch It, Shape It by JoAnn Deak, Ph.D.
This is a completely fascinating non-fiction book about the brain for young children. My preschoolers have wanted this one on repeat for days now while they soak in all of the information and I have no doubt it would appeal equally to early elementary schoolers. The book describes the brain and its parts from the amygdala to the cerebellum in applicable, accessible ways for young kids. By describing the brain through your emotions, experiences playing soccer or the piano and wonderful illustrations this book eloquently introduces children to their most impressive organ. 4+
Honey Bunny by Charles Reasoner
If I still had infants this book would be going in their Easter basket. It is sweet, simple and full of Spring time cheer. The rhyming text is brief and bouncy. The illustrations are colorful and energetic. Honey Bunny is hopping when he suddenly spots an egg and stops. When out pops a perky chick, he is thrilled to have found a new friend. The perfect hoppity treat for Spring. 0+
