Great Picture Books for Summer and Beyond

I’ve had the pleasure of reading some great picture books recently that I want to share with you.  In no particular order they are:

1. DOG GONE by Leeza Hernandez follows the antics of a naughty dog who, when scolded, runs away.  Will he repent?  Will he find his way back home?  Read this delightful book and find out.

2. THE MONSTORE by Tara Lazar, illustrated by James Burks, is a fun-filled story about a boy named Zack who decides to buy a monster that to help scare his pesky little sister. The only catch is, be careful which monster you choose. At the Monstore, there are no refunds, no returns, and no exchanges.

3. CREEPY CARROTS by Aaron Reynolds illustrated by Peter Brown, tells the tale of Jasper the rabbit who loves eating carrots from Crackenhopper Field.  He eats them all the time until…they start following him home. The illustrations in this book won the Caldecott Honor this year.
