New and Forthcoming Picture Book Reviews

All The Little Fathers by Margaret Wise Brown. The illustrations is what will really draw the reader in. They are quite simply beautiful. The textures will draw the eye of the adults, while the kids will love the colors. This book would be perfect for an early reader storytime and great for a Father's Day themed one.

The Most Magnificent Thing by Ashley Spires. This is really an inspiring book for kids. Throughout the book the little girl will inspire anyone to just keep trying. Sometimes it's best to take a step back from your work, but then you just might see what you needed to see all along. This could be great used in a STEM themed storytime.

The Snake Who Said Shhh by Jodie Parachini. A great picture book that teaches children it's OK to be different. Seth the snake has a lisp! This sets all the jungle animals to laughter. In the end though they learn maybe all Seth wants is quiet!

The Lion Who Lost His Roar, But Learned How To Draw by Paula Knight. I absolutely adored this book! The colors are very eye catching. For little ones just learning colors this could be a very useful book in teaching them!

What's In Your Pocket? by Ruth Symons and Laura Watkins. This was an adorable book. I could see it being used as a tool for teaching older siblings about the coming of a new baby.

When I Grow Gil McLean. What should I be when I grow up? That is the question Fergus wants answered. The only problem is that everyone gives him different answers. What's a puppy to do???? Find out what Fergus learns in this cute book. The softness of the illustrated animals will make the children want to pet the book!

What do you think of these new titles? Any out there you think I need to know about? Drop me a comment and let me know!
