Oh, No! - Candace Fleming and Eric Rohmann

What do you do when you fall into a big black hole in the jungle? Ask for help, of course. When Frog takes a tumble (“ribbit-oops!”) into the darkness, Mouse tries to save him but ends up falling in too; the same fate awaits Loris, Sun Bear, and Monkey. Animal after animal cries Oh, No! (Schwartz & Wade, $17.99) while taking an accidental plunge in this rhyming, rollicking adventure. Eric Rohmann’s simultaneously gorgeous and comical illustrations add a special touch to Candace Fleming’s rhythmic text. Ages 3-7. JLM

Bear Has a Story to Tell - Erin and Philip C. Stead

The husbandand- wife team that gave us A Sick Day for Amos McGee, Philip and Erin Stead, are back with a new, beautifully illustrated tale about the quiet joys of friendship. Fall is coming to an end and Bear Has a Story to Tell (Roaring Brook, $16.99). He has many pals in the forest, but they’re all too busy getting ready for winter to listen. Being a good friend, Bear helps them prepare: he gathers seeds with Mouse, checks the direction of the wind for Duck, and tucks Frog away for his winter’s nap (Mole, as it happens, is already asleep). By the time Bear is finished, it’s his turn to hibernate. Will he finally be able to tell his tale when spring arrives? Ages 3-6. JLM

His Name Was Raoul Wallenberg - Louise W. Borden

In 1912, a baby boy was born in Sweden. As he grew, his mother, grandfather, and stepfather endlessly discussed possibilities for his future both amongst themselves and with him; however, world events would ultimately turn his steps away from any path they had considered for him. HIS NAME WAS RAOUL WALLENBERG (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, $18.99), and he is now known as the unassuming businessman who saved the lives of over 100,000 Jews in Budapest during World War II. Louise Borden vividly describes both his heroic acts and the life that led up to them in this biographical prose poem. Ages 11-15. JLM
