Today I’m turning the spotlight on three picture books that deserve more circulation. Each of them are well-reviewed and notable books, and they will go on display in the Inly Library the second after this is posted!
Mr. Gumpy’s Outing by John Burningham – Nearing its 40th anniversary, Mr. Gumpy ‘s Outing is an English classic.
That New Animal by Emily Jenkins (Boston Globe-Horn Book Honor Book, 2005) Told from the point of view of two dogs (FudgeFudge and Marshmallow) after the birth of their owners’ new baby, this is a good choice for storytime.
Halibut Jackson by David Lucas – an exuberant celebration of individuality!
