more picture books

At the office playing some catch up with shelving and weeding books. Took a break to read some of the new books sent to me by Holiday House (thanks, Terry!). Here are a handful of some of their new titles for the fall.

Yo Mama Goose pulls together an array of animals for a barnyard slam. Charley Horse recites a poem about his distaste for hay; cow's rhyme tries to dispel rumors about cows. Lamb's selection is entitled "Lamb I Am." Lots of fun and language at play here.

When a boy is captured by a ghost, he delays his untimely end by telling the ghost he has a fabulous recipe for boy dumplings. Of course, there is much trickery involved and a happy ending.

Bridget yearns for a wee cabin to call her own. Unfortunately, it does not seem to be in the cards for the woman abandoned as a child. Wee men come to her rescue on Christmas evening, though.
