Jo Witek and Christine Roussey (Illustrator), Brave as Can Be | Abrams Books |

A polka-dot frocked toddler takes on an mountain of fears, from the neighbor's dog to the dark and thunderstorms, and overcomes her worries step by step. In this lyrical picture book, an older sister tells her younger sibling that there's nothing to be afraid of when you have the right mindset.

Timothée de Fombelle, Vango, Book 2: A Prince Without a Kingdom | Candlewick Press | Translated by Sarah Ardizzone

In the second installation of the Vango series, a young prince flees conspirators and danger in Europe to run across the globe in search of his true identity. De Fombelle drops crumbs along the way for the reader to piecemeal the prince's past and figure out when he can get his justice.

Stéphanie Blake, Super Bunny | North South |

An irreverent bunny doesn't want to go to school and instead dons a cape and seeks out adventure as a superhero. Lush with primary colors and filled with humor, Super Bunny is a treat for younger readers.
