Naptime with Theo and Beau
The only thing better than naptime is naptime with a friend. Theo, the puppy (part-Boxer, part-Shepherd, part-Labrador, part-Shar-Pei) was rescued by Beau, a twenty-three-month-old toddler, and his family from an animal shelter in Santa Cruz. The two of them instantly became best friends. At naptime, Theo waits for Beau to fall asleep, then curls up next to him—a beautiful image of friendship and trust. Theo and Beau are already a viral sensation thanks to the "unbearably adorable," "utterly charming" photos that author (Beau’s mother) Jessica Shyba has been posting on her popular blog Momma’s Gone City. Ages 2 to 5.

Red has a bright red label, but he is, in fact, blue. His teacher tries to help him be red (let’s draw strawberries!), his mother tries to help him be red by sending him out on a playdate with a yellow classmate (go draw a nice orange!), and the scissors try to help him be red by snipping his label so that he has room to breathe. But Red is miserable. He just can’t be red, no matter how hard he tries! Finally, a brand-new friend offers a brand-new perspective, and Red discovers what readers have known all along. He’s blue! Ages 4 to 8.
