The Little Engine That Could (Watty Piper)

Olivia (Ian Falconer)
Preschoolers (and their parents) will see themselves in Olivia--a typical high-energy, over-the-top kid who likes the beach and Degas paintings, but hates naps. On the other hand, she combs her ears and is unusually gifted at sandcastle building. While we are certainly reminded of Eloise, Falconer's portrait is simpler in scope, less demented, and, as a result, less adult. Bottom line: precocious is fun, and we're tickled pink to have Olivia join the parade of, let's just say, individualistic youngsters. (Ages 4 to 8) --Karin Snelson.
One Mitten (Kristine O’Connell George)
This fun wintertime book shows the creative things you can do with just one mitten in a sweet, comical way. The child does eventually find her other mitten, so she shows what can be done with two. It's good-natured fun. Especially great for K-1st graders. Younger readers can certainly enjoy it with mom or dad as the reader.
