7 Animal Friend Picture Books

If you've been reading my blog or checking my fb page,
you know I'm on a search for books this summer! 

Deanna's Book Talk linky is the perfect time to share what I've found.
Each week, I'm going to share several books I plan to read with my kiddos next year.
Today, I want to share a few animal friend picture books on my list.
Here we go!

My New Friend is So Fun by Mo Willems
I'm a big fan of Elephant and Piggie.
In this new adventure, which goes on sale today,
Piggie has a new friend, and Elephant feels left out.
I love how these books serve several purposes:
They are fun read-alouds that children can read independently,
AND they have great messages, as well!

The Pigeon Needs a Bath by Mo Willems
Look who's back!
Love the pigeon, but this time he doesn't believe he smells badly! Funny!
This books is only available for pre-order right now.

Flight School is the story of a group of birds learning to fly,
including one very determined penguin.
A sweet story of friendship and persistence!

I posted this book on my fb page, but it's worth another post.
Memoirs of a hamster is all about the day in the life of one adorable little hamster.
For even more fun, read Memoirs of a Goldfish, too!

Not Norman is the precious story of a boy who wants a pet,
ANY pet except his fish, Norman. This fish makes me smile!


Scaredy Squirrel is afraid of many animals, but in this story, he's ready to make a friend. Perfect for those sweet kiddos who may be a little hesitant to make new friends.
Love Scaredy Squirrel!

That's it for this week, friends!
Check back next week for more favorites!
I'll post more books on fb, too!
