Big Bear Little Chair - Lizi Boyd

Big Bear Little Chair (Chronicle, $16.99) is not an ordinary book of comparisons. This delightful new offering from Lizi Boyd allows young readers to compare different sizes of animals and objects in various settings. From the “big lion” riding his “little wagon” to the “big penguin” atop a “little iceberg” who is wearing a “tiny hat,” the objects grow smaller and smaller as the book progresses. Illustrations that pop off the page will thoroughly entertain children as they learn important size concepts. Ages 3-5

Lizard from the Park - Mark Pett

One New York City day, a young boy named Leonard decides to cut across the park on his way home. In the “deepest, darkest part of the park,” he discovers an egg. Believing it to contain a lizard, he takes it home with him and plays with it all evening. He cuddles with it all night. In the morning, Leonard hears the egg “jiggle and crack,” and out pops his new friend Buster. He takes Buster all over New York and watches him grow and grow and grow until he no longer fits anywhere. Leonard, however, has a plan for the Lizard from the Park (Simon & Schuster, $17.99). Beloved author/illustrator Mark Pett brings Leonard, Buster, and New York City to life in this charming picture book. Ages 4-7
