Moose cannot wait for his turn during the Alphabet Photo-shoot to take center stage. As each letter, A, B, C, D, parades by, Moose can barely contain his excitement. But when the alphabet rolls on to M, Moose finds himself passed over for ‘Mouse’. His fury unleashed, Moose begins disrupting many other letters’ photo-shoots, in this hilarious, new alphabet book. Paul Zelinsky’s detailed illustrations ask to be pored over, only eliciting more laughs.

Yay! A multi-culti Richard Scarry! Marc Boutavant has all the brightly-colored Japanese-style illustrations your kid will love instantly, packed with cultural references to surprise and delight. However: don't be fooled by the stickers; despite having very little text, this book is so chock-full of details it may take the patience of an older kid to fully appreciate.

A friendly story-book bear comes to life, has adventures, meets new friends and finally finds a home.  This book probably could have been written solely for librarians and booksellers in mind but fortunately it's just so appealing, most pre-schoolers will love it and Otto, even more.

Watch and wait, hopeful seeds seem to whisper, but of course the hardest thing about gardening is patience. As a little boy and his dog bide their time, fretting over their fledgling garden, winter browns give way to the lush greens of spring and a bountiful harvest. This satisfying picture book, illustrated by none other than the 2011 Caldecott medal-winning Erin Stead (A Sick Day for Amos McGee), reminds even the most impatient of snow bunnies that brighter days are just waiting to bloom.

3. I love the adventures of Amanda, her Alligator and their new, surprise friend. You will too.

You've heard of Mother Goose of course.  Spinster Goose is her more demanding sister who specializes in ill-mannered children and improving their dreadful behaviors.  Did you know that Georgie Porgie was a bully? That Jack and Jilly played hooky? And that Little Miss Muffet was a chalk-eater?  These disrespectfully twisted verses are sure to delight and surprise.
