Garcia & Colette Go Exploring by Hannah Barnaby -- OPTIONAL

Barnaby, Hannah Garcia & Colette Go Exploring, illustrated by Andrew Joyner. PICTURE BOOK. Penguin Random House 2017. $16.99. Content: G.

Garcia wants to explore the outer reaches of space, but Colette wants to travel to the bottom of the ocean. Since they can't agree on their destination, they make separate vehicles, wish each other a safe journey, and go traveling. But exploring alone is, well, lonely. Perhaps if they come together again they can find a compromise after all.

This one is pretty predictable up until the last page or two. Their final compromise is delightful, however, and I could see sharing it with young children and asking for predictions. (Older children will likely have read plenty of similar stories, so they may not find it as enthralling.)
