Ballet Cat : The Totally Secret Secret by Bob Shea
[book cover]

Ballet Cat and Sparkles the Pony are trying to decide what to play today.

Nothing that Sparkles suggests -- making crafts, playing checkers, and selling lemonade -- goes well with the leaping, spinning, and twirling that Ballet Cat likes to do. When Sparkles' leaps, spins, and twirls seem halfhearted, Ballet Cat asks him what’s wrong.

Sparkles doesn't want to say. He has a secret that Ballet Cat won't want to hear. What Sparkles doesn’t know is that Ballet Cat has a secret of her own, a totally secret secret. Once their secrets are shared, will their friendship end, or be stronger than ever?

Gwendolyn Grace by Katherine Hannigan
[book cover]

Gwendolyn Grace, a preschool alligator in a pink tutu, wants to play.

Her mother insists that she pipe down, because the baby is trying to sleep. Gwendolyn Grace can't quite believe it, and in this funny call-and-response, all dialogue and action picture book, she questions her mother relentlessly about what is allowed (not much) and not allowed (a lot).

It all ends happily, though, when Mom, baby, and Gwendolyn Grace play a noisy game together. Lots of drama, lots of noise, and lots of funny moments make this picture book debut an ideal choice for story times and for families with new siblings.
