Picture Book Round-Up

I have some fantastic new and upcoming picture books to share today! Little A (my four year old niece) and I both enjoyed each of these charming and wonderfully illustrated books...

Cookiesaurus Rex
By Amy Fellner Dominy & Nate Evans
Illustrated by A.G. Ford
September 26, 2017
As soon as Cookiesaurus Rex comes out of the oven, he declares that he is King of All Cookies. He should be frosted before all of the standard-shaped cookies, in a nice bright green. But the other cookies are getting sprinkles, or shiny stars, or even gumdrops . . . WAIT ONE STINKIN' STOMPIN' MINUTE! Cookiesaurus wants a do-over. Problem is, he might not end up with the kind of "do" he wants. Readers will love the funny back-and-forth between this cheeky cookie and the hand that frosts him. See who gets his licks in at the end!

Bruce’s Big Move
(Bruce #3)
By Ryan T. Higgins
September 26, 2017
After the events of Hotel Bruce, the curmudgeonly bear shares his home with not only his four geese, but three rowdy mice besides! Fed up with their shenanigans, Bruce sets off to find a rodent-free household. But as usual, nothing goes quite according to plan. . .

Twinderella: A Fractured Fairytale
By Corey Rosen Schwartz
Illustrated by Deborah Marcero
Setember 5, 2017
G.P. Putnam’s Sons BFRY
Have you heard the story of Cinderella? Well, you don't know the half of it.

Cinderella had a twin sister, Tinderella. They each did half the housework, half the mending, and half the mean step-sister tending. But when they meet only one prince, what will they do?

Ruby Rose, Big Bravos
By Rob Sanders
Illustrated by Debbie Ridpath Ohi
August 29, 2017
Harper Collins
Ruby Rose has a fantastic idea—a dance recital! But when Ruby Rose untangles her tights, fits her costume, creates the tickets, and makes her way onto the stage, it turns out the audience is caught in the rain! Oh no! Will Ruby Rose let a little thunder and lightning ruin her performance? With some swirling and twirling (and her best friend, Bearishnikov), Ruby Rose finds a way o star in the best recital ever!

Go Go Gorillas ( a romping bedtime tale)
By Patrick Wensink
Illustrated by Nate Wragg
August 22, 2017
Harper Collins
Ever wonder who the life of the safari is? It's go-go-gorillas!

All safari guide Jungle Jed wants is for the gorillas to go to sleep, but after they brush their teeth and comb their fur, it's an all-out jungle boogie, complete with baby gorilla doing the robot.

Brought to life with colorful and dynamic illustrations by Nate Wragg and bouncy text by Patrick Wensink, Go Go Gorillas is the perfect read-aloud. Fans of Giraffes Can’t Dance will giggle along at the silly antics of these not-so-sleepy gorillas in this lively, rhyming bedtime tale.

Through Your Eyes: My Child’s Gift To Me
By Ainsley Earhardt
Illustrated by Ji-Hyuk Kim
November 7, 2017
From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Take Heart, My Child and popular FOX news anchor Ainsley Earhardt comes a sweet new book that celebrates everyday wonders and miracles.

Ainsley Earhardt reflects on her experiences as a mother and viewing wonders of the world through a child’s eyes in this stunning follow up to Take Heart, My Child. So often as we race through life, we need the wisdom and perspective of a child to remind us what is important and what should be celebrated and remembered: the everyday joys and miracles and simple pleasures of life. Our children teach us and awaken our own inner child.

*I received copies of the titles above for review and feature purposes.
