Picture Book Saturday

Chopsticks by Amy Krause Rosenthal 9781423107965
 
In a very silly companion to the popular Spoon, we're introduced to Chopsticks, a pair of best friends that do absolutely everything together. No one has ever seen them apart! When one of the pair is incapacitated, they must learn to function separately, though neither can imagine what he could possibly do alone. A sweet friendship tale mixed with wit and loads of puns, this one will please a child of any age!

Otto the Book Bear by Katie Cleminson
 
Otto is a book bear, but he also has a secret. He comes to life when no one is looking! When Otto is out on an adventure, his book is accidentally taken away and he has to find a new home. After much searching, Otto comes to a beautiful library where he makes wonderful friends, has fantastic adventures, and has lots of new readers! A lovely story for any book lover, young and old. Cleminson's illustrations are beautifully soft, making a wonderful book to share.

I really enjoyed Otto. I think my favorite part about it was the itty bitty dragon. He was so cute. :)

I can't wait to read Chopsticks. I've got it on hold at my library.
