What I Read This Week- 10/17/2017

We've been getting a ton of new picture books in at work lately. Here's a few of my favorites from this week:

LMNO Pea-quel by Keith Baker
Just as funny as Baker's other books. I like that the letters in this one are lower case, so it adds a level of interest for kids who already know the alphabet (as well as still being fun for kids still learning).

This book has fantastic illustrations, as well as a heart-warming story. Ocean lovers, animal lovers, and detail lovers will all enjoy this one.

Pickwick's Picnic by Carol Brendler
I'm always on the lookout for a counting book for older kids that's a little more involved, and this one is perfect. Detailed drawings make it even more fun to investigate.
