Where is the Green Sheep?, by Mem Fox and Judy Horacek, is my children’s book pick for March. This book was first published in 2007 and since then has received numerous awards and recognition. This is one of my favorite children’s books and it will have you laughing the entire time. This book is a fun and silly read for kids and even adults. Where is the Green Sheep? is for kids who have enjoyed Lemons are not Red, Sheep in a Jeep, Sheep in Shop, Sheep Blast off, and Farmyard Beat.
Battle Bunny by Jon Scieszka and Mae Barnett is my children’s book pick for February. This book is amazing, ridiculous, and a unique read! Illustrator Matthew Myers does an incredible job drawing two overlapping stories on each page. Battle Bunny is for kids who enjoyed Mr. Tiger Goes Wild, Mo’s Mustache, Mr. Wuffles, and Do Not Open This Book.
