First is One Busy Day by Lola M. Schaefer. Little sister Mia wants nothing more than to do something fun with her big brother, Spencer. But he's always too busy! So Mia makes her own fun: painting, dancing, and building sand castles. Spencer soon joins in and the two spend the day together. This is a really nice book about sibling revelry that made me miss my own brothers! The illustrations are gorgeous.
Next is another great book about family, Sprout Helps Out by Rosie Winstead. This is a really charming story about a little girl helping out around the house. Things don't always go so smoothly, but it's the thought that counts - right? And Sprout is very thoughtful.
Last but not least: Peggy: A Brave Chicken on a Big Adventure by Anna Walker. Peggy the chicken is forced to break her cozy routine when a gust of wind blows her into the big city! How will our brave chicken friend fare so far from her country home? I love the sweetness and subtle humor of this story. A great reminder to get outside your nest and try new things.
