JUST ARRIVED  Looking for something to read aloud with your child?  We have a selection of new picture books and board books available.  The Whitney Museum of American Art has published two unique books with transparent pages to encourage your child’s exploration of the world around them: A Pile of Leaves and Find Colors, both by Jason Fulford and Tamara Shopsin.  Graphic designer Élo has created a lift-the-flap book, Birds of a Color, also aimed at helping children discover the world of color.  Christopher Danielson’s Which One Doesn’t Belong? encourages critical thinking about different shapes, while Jean Jullien plays a fun guessing game with expressions in Why The Face?.  Children can also interact with Who Am I? by Stéphanie Babin and Tristan Mory to discover a variety of animals.  Jonathan Litton and Thomas Elliott have two “Baby 101” books: Anatomy for Babies (to teach them about the parts of their bodies) and Architecture for Babies (to teach them about construction, and to introduce them to famous buildings all across the world.)  We have two new books about Diwali, the Hindu festival of lights: Diwali Lights, by Rina Singh, and Diwali by Hannah Eliot and Archana Sreenivasan.  Hannah Eliot also has a new book about the Lunar New Year, this one illustrated by Alina Chau.  Help children learn about manners with two books from Hilary Leung: Will Bear Share? and Will Ladybug Hug?, and teach them the basics of counting with Vroom Vroom Garbage Truck by Asia Citro and Troy Cummings.  Finally, enjoy some fun storytelling with Constance Van Kitzing’s The Chilly Penguin, Sandra Boynton and George Booth’s Here, George!, and Taro Gomi’s Little Boat.
