Picture Books!

The Honeybee by Kirsten Hall and Isabelle Arsenault. Little Simon, 2023. 9781665904841 (board book). 44pp.

Hall’s mostly rhyming verse and Arsenault’s beautiful, charming drawings work together to create this compelling pageturner about bees! And as in excellent comics and picture books, the turning of pages is used to great effect. And the honey glows! (I gave this to my adult daughter as soon as I finished it.)

100 Mighty Dragons All Named Broccoli by David Larochelle and Lian Cho. Dial Books, 2023. 9780525555445. 40pp.

Dragons play, surf, take trains, get turned into things by a wizard, move to different states, fly off (sometimes in rockets), and more in this story that is a fun excuse to do a little addition and subtraction. Brilliant!


Bookstore Bunnies (Read To Read Pre-Level One) by Eric Seltzer, illustrated by Tom Disbury. Simon Spotlight, 2022. 9781665927932. 32pp.

The bookstore bunnies are on the job, helping their animal customers get the books they want. There’s even a storytime! It’s a perfect read-aloud.
