Varied experience is exactly what Lisa Mantchev’s protagonist seeks in Someday, Narwhal (Paula Wiseman/Simon & Schuster, $17.99). Poor tiny Narwhal, whose emotions are perfectly captured in Hyewon Yum’s expressive pictures, has grown tired of her fishbowl-confined landscape. Her friends thus help her find the courage to venture beyond the front door, where she discovers a whole world at her flippers. Ages 0-5.

Look closely at the Statue of Liberty—especially Her Right Foot (Chronicle, $19.99): “She is going somewhere! She is on the move!” In his casual, conversational style, Dave Eggers takes readers on a journey from France to New York and introduces us to little-known facts about this iconic symbol. Artist Shawn Harris uses cut paper and India ink to illustrate the story, drawing our attention to the details as Eggers asks us to pause, think, and discuss along the way.
