This week I’m celebrating new picture books released this week. There were just so many that came out this past Tuesday that I only got caught up now.

I reviewed two titles in a previous post.

Wish by Matthew Cordell

Wish by Matthew Cordell


[**] There’s just something about elephants that make them so easy to draw as cute. This picture book is no exception about how one baby elephant came into the lives of two grown elephants. Sad and sweet at the same time.

Counting Crows by Kathi Appelt, Illustrated by Rob Dunlavey

A playful, rhyming counting book about a dozen crows and one hungry cat.

Polar Bear's Underwear by Tupera Tupera

Polar Bear’s Underwear by Tupera Tupera


[***] This is a delightful tale about a polar bear searching for his missing underwear. In fact, to read the book, you must first remove his red underwear. He and his mouse friend find different underwear throughout and die cuts reveal who they belong to with a hilarious surprise at the end.

In by Nikki McClure

[***] This picture book tells the story of a boy’s day who lets his imagination dictates whether he wants to be indoors or out. I love the paper cut illustrations.

Special Delivery by Philip C. Stead, Illustrated by Matthew Cordell

[****] Truly special. A girl is set on sending her aunt an elephant. I love the refrain of Aunt Josephine “who lives completely alone and can really use the company.” Sadie is such a great character- kind-hearted, determined, and willing to go with the flow.

Farewell Floppy by Benjamin Chaud

[***] After deciding having a rather useless bunny for a pet is childish, a boy decides to leave his floppy-eared friend in the forest. But he has second thoughts seconds too late because when he comes back, the bunny is gone! A sweet friendship story.

My Audio/Video of the Week is the first episode of a new podcast- Happier with Gretchen Rubin. She’s the author of The Happiness Project and Happier at Home. Her next book Better than Before is on my TBR List and comes out March 17th.

What are you celebrating this week?
