OpeningNext to you, the softest puppy in the world is only kind of cute.
Summary: (from my library catalog) When it comes to new babies, friends, or other loved ones, we should remind them of just how darling they are. But are they cuter than a piglet in a sweater? A basket of baby chicks? An elephant calf taking a bath? Of course! Sweet, funny, irreverent, but above all, CUTE, this keepsake-size book is perfect for both gift-giving and cuddly story times.

NextToYou1.pngWhy I like this book: Amazing how this one can be so funny and touching at the same time. You’re going to want to buy this one for someone you like to be next to!

NextToYou2Resources/Activities: great for learning how to draw a child’s face, esp a small child; I could see this being used in a biology class, discussing evolution and how we are wired to take care of our young.
