The Week in Picture Books

These are the best, most interesting picture books I read this week. Without further ado:

30199433The Storm Whale in Winter by Benji Davies: I read this brilliant little picture book right after reading its predecessor, and both were moving and wholly engrossing. The illustrations are beautiful, the text is sparse and effective, and kids and adults will love how much these books reflect the beauty of life and friendship and family.

I seriously loved this one.

Mr. Fuzzbuster Knows He’s the Favorite by Stacy Mcanulty: This super cute book about a cat that’s sure he’s the favorite pet in the house will captivate readers with its bright pictures that could easily translate to TV screen and smart, funny, repetitive text that will engage early and beginning readers. This is super cute, super fun, and one that a lot of kids will be begging for again and again.

6527980A Book of Sleep by Il Sung Na: Na’s illustrations in this simple book are striking and definitely the best part of it. It’s a perfect bedtime book, and fit perfectly into my theme for storytime this week of “Animals at Night”.
