Three of the best from our New Picture Book collection:
Where Do We Go When We Disappear? by Isabel Minhos Martins and Madalena Matoso
Where we go when we disappear? Humans have been pondering this riddle since we developed the capacity to ponder. And we finally have the answer! In picture book format! Well, maybe not an answer but definitely some oblique metaphors! This brave new title is deep and awesome. Where Do We Go When We Disappear? is a playful reminder that life is a cycle that is at once beginning and ending. Ages 2 to Adult.
Zoom! Zoom! Sounds of Things That Go In the City by Robert Burleigh
This one’s got it all. Trains, buses, ambulances, and the occasional robot. Simple rhyming text and colorful pictures illustrate the sights and sounds of a bustling city. Vroom-vroom-vroom! Ages 2 to 4.
Chengdu Could Not, Would Not, Fall Asleep by Barney Saltzberg
Perfect for the “I’m not tired” crowd. Chengdu is a cute panda bear who can’t get to sleep (of course he eventually does). With its sing song text and dreamy illustrations this might be your family’s new favorite bedtime story. Ages 2 to 4.
