I Feel Happy by Salina Yoon
Explore emotions in this board book. The book comes with one puzzle piece that has a rotating wheel. The piece is the face of the child and children can rotate the mouth so that the face shows different reactions. Turn pages in the book, and different situations are explained. The child can then show the emotion that they would feel in that situation. The puzzle piece is attached to the book with yellow ribbon. It’s a novelty book that would work well in public libraries thanks to the durability of the piece and the pages.
It’s a Little Book by Lane Smith
A version of It’s a Book that is perfect for the toddler set. Here you have the donkey and gorilla in diapers, exploring what a book is. Is it for chewing? Is it for wearing? Is it for flying? Each time the donkey comes up with an idea, the gorilla gives it a “no.” Until the end, “It’s a book, silly.” None of the controversy of the first book but all of the charm. And yes, it did take a lot of effort to call the character “donkey” here.
