UH-OH, DODO! by Jennifer Sattler. Boyds Mills Press, 2013.
Poor, Dodo is having a tough day. He keeps getting sidetracked and distracted by the things going on in the world around him. A run-in with a skunk is the last straw! Minimal text but plenty to read in the expressions of the baby Dodo, this is one young kids will appreciate as things go wrong in their world, too.
HOW MUCH DOES THE GRAY IN AN ELEPHANT WEIGHT? by Elle Van Lieshout and Erik Van Os with illustrations by Alice Hoogstad. Lemniscaat, 2013.
On a visit to a zoo, Grandpa and child wonder about the different animals. Do polar bears seek out frosty treat3es when the temps climb? How does someone tame a lion's mane? Lots of wondering questions will delight readers.
