Next to You: A Book of Adorableness by Lori Haskins Houran- ESSENTIAL

Houran, Lori Haskins. Next to You: A Book of Adorableness, PICTURE BOOK. Albert Whitman and Company, 2016. 

Baby animals are beyond cute. You just look at them and your heart swells with their cuteness. But next to you? Garbage. 

That is the theme of this adorably illustrated picture book. It has a simple premise and doesn’t deviate from it. The pictures of the baby animals are really, truly cute with their big eyes and soft fur. There is definitely verbiage that lends itself better to being read aloud, but just like the narrator says about the animals and the reader, this book is very, very cute. This would be a good gift book as well.
