Shape Game

The Shape Game by Anthony Browne (0-374-36764-7)
If you enjoyed Zoo by Anthony Browne, this book features the same quirky and very realistically presented family. This time the family visits an art museum, allowing the reader to travel right along with them listening to the comments of the family and enjoying the art along the way.
This book will remind kids that their family with all of its quirks is perfectly normal and that they can go to grand art museums and decode paintings or enjoy sculptures too. This book will get elementary age children inspired just as a visit to the art museum inspired Browne as a child.

Baby Business

Baby Business by Mittie Cuetara (0-525-47026-3)
This humorous look at babies through short four-line poems will get you giggling. Appropriate for parents and older siblings, the charm and different personalities of babies are captured with unerring accuracy. A great lap-share book for children who aren’t babies anymore.
