The Chicken Problem; Oxley and Aronson and Where's Ellie? Salina Yoon

Jennifer Oxley and Billy Aronson
Random House Young Readers 
 (Sept 2012 )
 The Chicken Problem, is a cute story about a little girl named Peg, her cat, and a pig, who are hoping to have a nice picnic on the farm.  Sadly, all doesn’t go as planned when someone leaves the barn door open and there are chickens everywhere!

This was a great book that will help young ones to work on their counting skills (chickens chickens everywhere), and a story that will help children to develop some problem solving skills as well, as they see new ways to solve the “chicken problem”.  There are also very colorful illustrations that look like something a young child would create. The Chicken Problem, is a fun book for children and adults.

 Buy this one! - a great addition for libraries or personal collections. (Ages 3 and up)

Where's Ellie?; Salina Yoon
A Hide-and Seek Book

(August 2012)

Very young children (from just a few months to about age 3) will love this book and enjoy searching for where Ellie the Elephant is hiding. You'll have to finish the whole book to find out, but that won't be a problem as this one is a visual pleaser. 

Very cute critters on each page, simple and colorful objects and bright colorful illustrations will make this board book the perfect addition to a newborn’s first library…..loved it.
