Hooray Parade by Barbara Joosse-OPTIONAL

Joosse, Barbara Hooray Parade.  Illustrated by Heywon Yum, 40 pgs.  Viking Juvenile,  2013.  $16.99.  PICTURE BOOK. Grandma is coming to visit.  She often brings a surprise and this time is no exception.  With the help of a shadow-puppet guessing game, her granddaughter (and young readers alike) are thrilled with guessing which animal shows up behind the curtain: an elephant, ostrich, rhino and monkey.  On the last page, all the animals come from behind the curtain and join the grandmother and granddaughter in a parade. The colors in the illustrations are bright and inviting.  The story is simple but will thrill young readers.  Pre-K.  OPTIONAL.  Reviewer: SL
