New Picture Books

We are always getting new books and materials in, and currently we have a great batch of new picture books!  Stop in the library to check out some of the following titles. All are available at the library or through interlibrary loan.

Dinosaur vs. the Library by Bob Shea
Dinosaur has previously battled bedtime and the potty, and now he is back to take on the library! Dinosaur is challenged to use his inside roar during story time...will he be victorious?

 I Want My Hat Back by Jon Klassen
A bear has lost his hat! He questions several animals in his search, and worries he will never see his hat again. Wait....he has seen his hat...

Don't Worry, Douglas! by David Melling
Hats are apparently the "it" accessory among bears! Douglas' dad has just given him a new woolly hat. Everyone, including Douglas, loves his new hat, but then something terrible happens. Douglas' friends try to help, but will they be able to return his nice hat to its original state? What will he tell his dad?

Introducing Limelight Larry by Leigh Hodgkinson
Larry is a peacock with a bit of an ego. He knows this book is fantastic by the mere fact that it features him! What he doesn't know yet is the book also features several of his friends. Will Larry be able to share the limelight?

Only Cows Allowed by Lynn Plourde
The cows want to keep all the other farm animals out of the barn. They tried their best (they even made legible signs!) but the sheep, horses, hens and pigs all move into the barn. Will the cows ever get some peace?

What's New at the Zoo? by Betty Comden and Adolph Green
The zoo is overcrowded. The (hatless) bear  is stepping on the kangaroo's pouch, the moose is stepping on the pelican's beak, and the pig is stepping on the porcupine's quills. As you can imagine, nobody is very comfy, and all the animals are chanting to be let out! A fun book, with lots of repetition and hilarious pictures.

Stuck by Oliver Jeffers
It all began when Floyd got his kite stuck in a tree. Then the trouble really began when he tried to knock his kite loose by throwing his shoe at it. His shoe gets stuck! Floyd diligently attempts to find the perfect solution that will get everything out of the tree and solve this problem once and for all. Will it be the orangutan who "surely has somewhere else to be," the whale who was "in the wrong place at the wrong time" or the array of other items Floyd tries?
