What would it be like if the ducks got together and danced on Friday night every week? This rhyming, active book tells us all about it.

Title: Hey, Duck!
Author: Carin Bramsen

This cute book about an annoyed cat and a relentless duck will tickle your funny bone. The pictures make the cat and duck actually touchable.

This is a beautiful picture book about cross country skiing and the hibernating worlds that are inhabited beneath the snow and under our footsteps. This book is a great reminder that all of nature at rest will reemerge in the spring. Come on spring!

For old Mo Willems fans (& new!) this is a great take on the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. I used this as a companion to the original during story time and it was a huge hit! Fun for parents AND kids.

Title: All I See
Author: Cynthia Rylant

This is an older book, but it is worth a second look. It has lovely pictures and it is about Gregory, a painter, who takes Charlie, an aspiring painter, under his wing. It reminds us how we learn from those who have gone before!

This book rhymes (with challenging vocabulary) and gives a spin on why George Washington may have decided to go into politics. Amusing!

Benji looks a lot like Lincoln and he doesn't like it. His parents send him to a camp where people look like things and he discovers that he is proud of his looks and who he looks like. Fun!
