Busy Elephants by John Schindel and Martin Harvey
The latest in the Busy Book series from Tricycle Press, this book features wonderfully crisp and clear photos of elephants. Nicely, the photographs are also dynamic with elephants of different sizes interacting, running, splashing and blowing. Get this into the hands of the smallest animal lovers.
Grandma Calls Me Gigglepie by J. D. Lester, illustrated by Hiroe Nakata
A third board book from the pair who gave us Mommy Calls Me Monkeypants and Daddy Calls Me Doodlebug. The book moves through human and animal grandparents interacting with their grandchild and calling them a variety of suitable endearments. This is an adorable concept that continues to work well due to the sweet illustrations and sentiments inside.
The Little Composter by Jan Gerardi
This lift-the-flap board book not only promotes composting but has an intriguing premise where the flaps conceal the remains of the eaten food. A jaunty rhyme moves the book forward to the end where the worms start to do their work and the garden work begins.
