It’s Pumpkin Day, Mouse! by Laura Numeroff and Felicia Bond

Mouse from If You Give a Mouse a Cookie returns with a fall-themed board book.  Mouse has seven pumpkins to decorate for Halloween.  He paints a happy face, a sad face, then silly and surprised.  But when he discovers that one pumpkin is missing, he finds his own Halloween scare.  Perfect for older toddlers, they will enjoy Mouse, the pumpkins, and the surprise.  But if you give a toddler this book, they will ask to carve pumpkins.

Where’s Ellie? by Salina Yoon

In Yoon’s signature simple style, this board book offers hide-and-seek fun.  Young readers are searching for Ellie but there are lots of things that look like an elephant and turn out to be something entirely different.  This board book will work best for younger toddlers who will enjoy the search and turning the pages themselves.
