Books for KC

"Guess Again" by Mac Barnett, illustrated by Adam Rex - The rhyming text in Mac Barnett's debut picture book asks readers to fill in the obvious blank to guess what the obvious picture is, but when the page is turned, what's revealed is anything but obvious! You can't help but laugh at the wonderfully absurd and hilarious result of this book that makes plays on words, pictures, and your expectations! --rec by Jon Scieszka

"Little Oink" by Amy Krouse Rosenthal, illustrated by Jen Corace -- From the creators of "Little Pea" and "Little Hoot" comes this tidy tale of a decidedly different pig. Little Oink is a neat little fellow. Clean, clean, clean, that's all he wants to do. But Mama and Papa won't have it! They say in order to be a proper pig, he has to learn to make a proper mess. Readers who hate clean up will love this humorous twist on a universal dilemma. --rec by Jon Scieszka

How Rocket Learned to Read by Tad Hills, also Duck and Goose
