The second one is a super cute book about dealing with a new baby. Leon has a new baby at his house and he's not too sure about how that's going to work. In Leon's way of thinking, there really isn't room for a new baby, until Leon has a really great and loving idea of where the baby can go. The pictures are black crayon and oil, which gives them a lot of texture and interest, in spite of a limited color palette. The penguins have more human faces than you might expect. This will be a nice addition to all the books about dealing with babies like "The New Small Person" by Lauren Childs or "Peter's Chair" by Ezra Jack Keats.
The last one is a circle story called "Leap!" by JonArno Lawson. It starts off with a flea who takes a leap and sets in motion a series of actions, involving a large array of animals leaping. The story is written in rhyme and it has the most amazing array of language-such lovely words and descriptions of what the animals are doing and how that leads them to end of the book, (I don't really think this is a spoiler but it you don't want to know the ending before you read it, skip to the next paragraph please) where the dog and the flea finally go to sleep.
The art is watercolor and collage and the pictures are modern and exuberant and lots of fun. The horse looks REALLY scared, which might make for a good conversation about understanding others feelings and body language. I liked this one a lot.
