Last week I shared a rather long list of new books that the library has for adult readers. Now it's time for kiddie lit.

Picture books to look for:

Silly Lilly and the four seasons /Rosenstiehl, Agnes

How big could your pumpkin grow? /Minor, Wendell.

Secrets of the seasons : orbiting the sun in our backyard /Zoehfeld, Kathleen Weidner

.John Henry : an American legend /Keats, Ezra Jack.

Funny Farm /Teague, Mark.

The numberlys /Joyce, William

,No one else like you /Goeminne, Siska

Little Excavator /Dewdney, Anna

Plant the tiny seed /Matheson, Christie

Red and Lulu /Tavares, Matt.

What does the fox say? /Ylvis

Thunder Boy Jr. /Alexie, Sherman

A stowaway on Noah's Ark /Santore, Charles.


I am David /Holm, Anne    I am David (originally titled North to Freedom) was published in 1963 by the Danish author, Anne Holm. It tells the story of a young boy who, with the help of a prison guard, escapes from a concentration camp during World War II and makes his way to Denmark

Refugee /Gratz, Alan  This timely book focuses on three stories: a Jewish boy living in Nazi Germany during the 1930s, a Cuban girl in 1994, and a Syrian boy in 2015.  This new book is a likely pick for some major awards.
