Happy by Emma Dodd -- ADVISABLE

Dodd, Emma Happy. PICTURE BOOK. Nosy Crow (Candlewick Press), 2014. $12.99. Content: G.

This tender poem is a parent owl's wish for his or her owlet. With its gentle rhymes and foil-accented illustrations, this makes a lovely read-aloud for a younger child. Because genders are not specified, it provides a lot of flexibility for both reader and audience. Would make a great Christmas or birthday gift for a toddler or pre-schooler.

Pre-K, EL (K-3) -- ADVISABLE. Reviewer: Caryn
