  1. So many great new titles!! Thanks for sharing, Cathy! I am especially looking forward to MANHATTAN. I love Jennifer Thermes' maps! And of course, animal books are always favorites--looking forward to reading about beavers and tasmanian devils. The skunk book looks beautiful-loveKate Garchinsky's illustrations for her other books too!
