Anticipation August 2011 Picture Books

I’ve been anticipating a lot of young adult novels this year, but there have also been some picture books that I’m looking forward to.  Here are some coming up in August that I’m looking forward to:


Naamah and the Ark at Night by Susan Campbell Bartoletti illustrated by Holly Meade published by Candlewick

I love the way Bartoletti writes, especially in her nonfiction, so I’m looking forward to this story about Noah’s wife singing to the animals at night.

The soft illustration on this books cover is enticing and the theme of memories attached to a favorite piece of clothing is something so unique.

Ed Emberley has been a favorite of mine since childhood and now working with his daughter this team  never disappoints
