Goodnight lagoon 2

Goodnight Lagoon by author Lisa Ann Scott and illustrator Paco Sordo

Age Range: 4 – 8 years

Publisher: little bee books

Publication Date: June 4, 2019

A mermaid says goodnight to the living and nonliving elements in her habitat in this rhyming picture book. She acknowledges things above and in the lagoon. Scenes that depict above and below water simultaneously are attractive. A glossary about illustrations expands readers knowledge. My Book Eyes was delighted to learn about a narwhal.

Stanley’s Train by author / illustrator William Bee

Age Range: 3 – 7 years

Publication Date: August 1, 2019

In this picture book, Stanley and his buddy Charlie share train maintenance duties prior to picking up their friends. They take a day trip. Guess where they are going from the items they bring with them. My Book Eyes adored the turn taking element inserted in this story. Vivid colors allow distinct views of items in illustrations.
