New Picture Books about Friendship

Hoot and Peep is a gorgeously illustrated book about the very special friendship that can grow when there is mutual respect.  Hoot is proud to share his owly wisdom with his little sister Peep – except that she has her own ideas about how owls should behave!  Little ones everywhere will enjoy this magical story about finding your own voice and winning the respect of others.  Explore the nighttime landscape of Paris as the owls discover that everyone has an important contribution to make.  From the author/illustrator of the beloved Red Sled.

Suggested Activities:

  • Do one of these fun owl crafts
  • Take a nature walk (at night, if possible!) and listen to the special song of each creature
  • Come up with your own special song – what would you sing if you were an owl?
  • Use a photo of Paris or your favorite city and use this art activity to recreate it!

Poor Raybot is all alone, but one day he discovers that to have a best friend he just has to look for a creature that barks.  The problem is, he doesn’t know which creature that is or where to find him!  And so begin his adventures throughout the world, meeting creatures great and small in search of his best friend.  A wonderful story about friendship and what makes a good friend, with beautiful hand-painted illustrations.  Fun for young lovers of robots and animals alike!

Suggested Activities:

  • Have kids draw a picture or write a story about their best friend (real or imagined!)
  • This is a great story to act out with puppets or stuffed animals!
  • Do one of these fun robot activities
  • Try some paper plate animal crafts
