Would you imagine that a path as well-worn as learning about shapes still has some surprises to offer? It does! This charming board book is the perfect blend of repetition and surprise, injecting the unexpected into the mundane. This should offer plenty of giggles for babies one year old and up (and for the parent, too.) ~ Reviewed by Jennifer Armstrong

Little bear and all the other small creatures of the forest will be your child's new bedtime friends. Check out the endpapers for a special treat. ~ Reviewed by Jennifer Armstrong

This colorful and inventive flap book with a simple (and durable!) single pull on each page introduces numbers with a surprising twist. Each spread shows 1 of something, but pull the right-hand edge and the page opens up to reveal that what was originally two halves of one thing (one strawberry, one donut, one carrot) turns out to be two parts parts of several other things. One chocolate ice cream pop opens up to reveal 9 tortoise, one lemon becomes ten yellow chickies. Great fun, and easy for even little hands to operate. ~ Reviewed by Jennifer Armstrong

Published: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers - October 4th, 2016

The second book by this dynamic duo that features real animals on a Vermont Farm. Little Finn is born too early and too weak to stay in the cold, late-winter barn so Farmer John brings him home where he's nurtured and taught how to drink from a bottle by Maisie Grace, the fabulous border collie puppy. Soon Finn is strong enough to join his barnyard friends, but it's a big, scary world out there! With a great display of encouragement from the other animals, Finn begins to feel brave, empowered and completely loved. Warning: there's so much genuine compassion and kindness on each and every page, it may make you tear up. The photo illustrations are perfection and you're even treated to a Behind the Scenes look at farm life and The True Story of Finn. ~ Reviewed by Gail Cosgriff
