Two More Wonderful Picture Books

Two more picture books I read recently and LOVED!

The first is Bone by Bone: Comparing Animal Skeletons, by Sara Levine and illustrated by T.S. Spookytooth.
This non-fiction book is written so cleverly and illustrated so entertainingly that readers (including moi) will hardly realize they’re learning a whole lot about animal skeletons. No small feat! (I don’t mean no small feet – there are a few of those.)

One Cool Friend is deservedly a Caldecott Honor Book, as well as a NY Times bestseller.
It’s a hilarious and brilliant fiction picture book by the prolific Toni Buzzeo and illustrated by David Small. On a visit to the aquarium with his preoccupied dad, the “proper” Elliot brings home a penguin, with wild results, culminating in one of the most surprising and satisfying twist endings in the world of picture books.
