A Dog is a Dog by Stephen Shaskan
You will love the rhythm and rhyming of the words. They encourage children to anticipate which animal will appear on the next page! Lots of fun and giggles goes along with this story.
Little Owl’s Night by Divya Srinivasan
The sun sets. The moon rises, and little owl and his friends wake up! Little Owl’s Night is a wonderfully illustrated book about nocturnal animals and little owl’s adventures with them. This book gives you the chance to talk about different animals and their eating and sleeping habits. The story ends when the sun begins to come up. I loved this picture book.
Too Many Pumpkins by Linda White
Kindergarten-Grade 3-Golden autumn hues cast their warm glow throughout this humorous harvest tale. Rebecca Estelle, having survived on various pumpkin dishes during her poor childhood, hates them so much that when a pumpkin accidentally falls into her yard, she shovels dirt over it so she won’t have to see or think about it again. In spite of all her efforts to the contrary, she is “rewarded” with a yard full of bright orange globes the following fall. Not willing to let the windfall go to waste, she once again prepares the dishes she detested as a child, carves jack-o-lanterns from the remaining pile, and then thoroughly enjoys the fellowship of her neighbors lured by the glow of the mischievous carvings. And, of course, Rebecca Estelle saves seeds for next year’s planting. Lloyd snuggles White’s text into her rich watercolor-and-pen illustrations. Nature’s determined bounty spills from formal borders and is tinged with just the right touch of realism to contrast with the cartoon like Rebecca Estelle and her feline companion. The vocabulary and sentence structure calls for solid independent readers, but the large horizontal format packed with engaging fun makes this title an ideal harvest/Halloween read-aloud.
