2015 Spring Picture Book Round-Up: Part Two

What better way to end 2014 than by looking ahead to some new picture books due to be published in 2015? See a title that you like? Comment below to borrow our copy and take a look!

What This Story Needs is a Pig in a Wig by Emma J. Virjan

Simple text perfect for beginning readers creates a hybrid picture book/easy reader in this title. Rhyming text follows Pig as she embarks on a silly adventure - and finds that sometimes life is better with a friend or two along the way.

My Bike by Byron Barton

In typical, colorful fashion - Byron Barton follows a little boy on a bike ride... with a surprise twist!

First Snow by Peter McCarty

Ink and watercolor illustrations awash in pastels, taupes and pale grays carry this charming story of Pedro's first snowfall and all the magic that goes into a first day in the snow.

Finding Spring by Carin Berger

Precisely placed, gorgeously detailed collaged illustrations help tell the story of a bear named Maurice who is searching for Spring. But before he can find Spring - he stumbles upon something just as glorious - Winter!

Should You Be a River: A Poem About Love by Ed Young

An eloquent poem that reflects upon unconditional love, inspired by Ed Young's two young daughters and his late wife. Photographs, calligraphy, and cut and torn paper shapes create the striking visuals of the powerful text.

Grasshopper and the Ants by Jerry Pinkney

The artwork, done in the same style as Pinkney's Caldecott winning illustrations of The Lion and The Mouse - truly speaks for itself in this timeless fable that cautions against idleness.
