Terrific Spring Picture Books!
Spring Into the Season With These New Titles!
These delightful tales will spark joy and laughter! From a young boy who just wants to play on the playground with the other kids (and not asked about his leg!) to an avocado that needs a little help finding her IT factor, to a boy that just wants to be big already!
Tune in to enjoy:
I Want to Be Big! by TIFFANY GOLDEN. Jaiceon wishes he was big — bigger than his whole family, bigger than everyone! If he were big, he could reach the cookies on the counter, or stay up really late. When Jaiceon’s wish is granted, rules shrink away, and he dives into a world of enormous fun. But as he grows, the situation grows out of control along with him, and Jaiceon starts to wonder if being small wasn’t so bad after all.
What Happened to You? by JAMES CATCHPOLE. What happened to you? Was it a shark? A burglar? A lion? Did it fall off? A boy named Joe is trying to play pirates at the playground, but he keeps being asked what happened to his leg. Bombarded with questions and silly suggestions, Joe becomes more and more fed up... until the kids finally understand they don't need to know what happened. And that they’re wasting valuable playtime!
Bravo, Avocado! by CHANA STIEFEL. It’s a delightful day at the farmer’s market, but Avocado has a pit in her stomach. She longs to be Today’s Special. Avocado asks her farm-fresh friends to help her discover what makes her stand out. Tomato offers to teach her salsa. Garlic suggests she add some zing! Nothing seems to work until — Ding ding! — Toaster inspires Avocado to reflect more deeply.
Bing! Bang! Chugga! Beep! by MICHAEL SAMPSON. This old car has been everywhere from the backyard to the sky, from the hills to the water. Bouncing between the mud in the ground and the clouds up high, the old car is loved by a clever young boy, just as readers will love this singsong story from an iconic children's author duo.
- Tiny T. Rex and the Grand Ta-Da! by JONATHAN STUTZMAN and illustrated by JAY FLECK. Tiny and his friend Pointy really want to win their school's talent show. And they think they know just how to do it: They will become great magicians, and perform the grandest trick of all: to make something disappear. But it isn't easy to become magicians, and just when they've mastered their skills, they face the even greater challenge of performing in front of an audience!
