Look for two new picture books on the shelves. Two Little Monkeys by Mem Fox and Trouper by Meg Kearney.
Two Little Monkeys is the story told in rhyme of two adventurous monkeys, named Cheeky and Chee. Just enough comedy and suspense for little ones.
Trouper is based on a true story of a rescue dog. There is something special about Trouper that makes it a great book to begin a discussion of special needs. The illustrations are lovely water-color paintings.
