HEY, DUCK! by Carin Bramsen. Random House, 2013.
If the adorable fuzzy duck on the cover does not lure you into the book, then the gentle rhyming story of an unlikely friendship between a duck and a cat (see his tail on the cover) will surely win you over. Both characters show some spunk that is perhaps more bravado than anything else. Perfect for reading aloud.
RIBBIT by Rodrigo Folgueira with illustrations by Poly Bernatene. Knopf, 2013.
What can you do with a pig who says RIBBIT and sits on a lily pad? That is the question that causes quite a bot of consternation among the animals. How dare a pig do this? After squabbling, the animals decide to consult with the wise old beetle who offers an explanation none of them had considered: perhaps the pig was simply seeking some new friends?
SNIPPET THE EARLY RISER by Bethanie Deeney Murguia. Knopf, 2013.
Snippet's family prefers sleeping in. Unfortunately, Snippet wants to rise and shine. Readers get to follow along and see how Snippet spends his day. End papers contain cool facts about snails.
