roaring into March

Somehow this book seems particularly apropros for this time of year. IN LIKE A LION OUT LIKE A LAMB (Holiday House 2011) by Marion Dane Bauer with illustrations by Emily Arnold McCully is a rhyming, jaunty story of how March opens with wintry bluster (said lion) and ends when the gentle lamb takes his place. <106>

Take a ride on MONKEY TRUCK (Holt 2011). It is a ride you will not soon forget. Michael Slack's exuberant illustrations and straightforward words combine in this playful tale of a monkey truck who can rescue animals in distress. <107>

All the rules you will need for THE BEST BIRTHDAY EVER (Disney Hyperion 2011) are here in this charming and funny book by Charice Mericle Harper. <108>
