Polar Opposites - By Erik Brooks

What an ingenious idea for teaching children about opposites! "Alex the Polar Bear" and "Zina the Penguin" ARE complete opposites, living on opposite ends of the world, but even they can still be friends! Lots of black, white, and gray coloring through the majority of the illustrations, but the characters are definitely cute.

Hello, Puppy! - By Jane Cowen-Fletcher

This is the perfect toddler introduction to puppies! The soft, beautiful illustrations compliment the text, showing young children how puppies sleep, stretch, eat, play, and give "kisses". If you don't have a dog already, it won't be long before your little one is saying, "I want a puppy, Mommy!"
