A Little Book of Sloth. Published March 5, 2013
A Little Book of Sloth by Lucy Cooke, a zoologist who fell in love with sloths during a 2010 visit to a “sloth sanctuary” in Costa Rica.
Learn more about sloths in this video that Cooke created in October 2012, while visiting the Aviarios Sloth Sanctuary in Costa Rica.
Sense & Sensibility: An Opposites Primer. Published February 15, 2013
Sense & Sensibility: An Opposites Primer is the latest in a long string of popular board books written by Jennifer Adams and illustrated by Alison Oliver.
This one, based (very loosely) on Jane Austen’s classic, Sense and Sensibility, teaches young children the concept of opposites.
Because there are so few words, the images have a lot to do with the success of these books. The humor in the book makes the reading experience just as fun for the parents as for the kids.
Nancy Clancy, Super Sleuth. Published April 23, 2013
Nancy Clancy, Super Sleuth (written by Jane O’Connor and illustrated by Robin Preiss Glasser) is the first in a series of mystery books featuring Fancy Nancy – previously only seen in picture books.
With her rhinestone-studded magnifying glass and a “professional pink trench coat,” Nancy Clancy is totally prepared to solve mysteries! Helping her is her best friend, Bree, who apparently is very good at breaking codes.
