Wolfie the Bunny by Ame Dyckman and Zachariah OHora: Funny, sweet, with just a touch of danger to keep the story going.
Hug Me by Simona Ciraolo: I found this one fairly predictable, although the theme of finding the people who fit in your life is nice.
Murilla Gorilla and the Hammock Problem by Jennifer Lloyd, illustrated by Jacqui Lee: This is kind of an adorable story, about a gorilla detective. It’s a nice early chapter book for those readers transitioning from early readers.
Finding the Music by Jennifer Torres: I really like the sense of history and community in this one, and the connections with family and creativity; I think it’s one that will resonate with kids who have strong relationships with their grandparents.
