JUST ARRIVED This week we’re looking at books for our younger patrons. Pearl, written and illustrated by Molly Idle, tells a story about a mermaid and the importance of seemingly small tasks. Qin Leng’s I Am Small features the pitfalls and benefits of being the tiniest person in your family. Storm is the latest in author Sam Usher’s series where a young boy‘s grandfather helps him see the fun in all kinds of weather. (The other titles include Snow, Rain, and Sun.) Children who like vehicles of all types might want to try Kate McMullan’s I’m Tough, about a pickup truck, while dinosaur fans might try I Am A Tyrannosaurus by Tatsuya Miyanshi. Mo Willems is back with a new series, this one featuring squirrels. The first book is I Lost My Tooth – and, it appears, squirrels don’t know much about teeth. For children ready to read on their own, Dan Pilkey has an addition to his Dog Man series, this one titled Lord of the Fleas.
