Like so many children, the little girl in MIRROR (Perseus, $15.95) is enamored with her image. In this complex wordless picture book, Suzy Lee (Wave) vividly captures the little girl’s array of emotions, moving from glee to bewilderment to sadness as she plays with and taunts her reflection. At one point, she completely disappears, only to return with her now-independent mirror image at her side. Lee's illustrations, including the Rorschach-like explosions, are extraordinary. Ages 5-7.

As a rule, TIGER AND TURTLE (Roaring Brook, $17.99) simply tolerate each other. Neither feels threatened by the other, and neither feels the need to be friends. This all changes when “the tiniest of flowers floated down from the sky.” In Tiger and Turtle’s fight over the flower, it’s every creature for himself. Find out how these two resolve their differences in this brightly-illustrated tale of friendship told by Caldecott medalist James Rumford as he heard it from a letter-writer in Old Kabul. Ages 2-5.

A naturally curious penguin, Edna knows there must be something more to the world than just the white of ice and snow, the blackness of night and the blue depths of the sea. In A Penguin Story by Antoinette Portis (HarperCollins, $17.99), Edna gracefully declines offers of lunch and adventure to seek “something else”. Her quest is rewarded when she discovers a scientific expedition whose members befriend the penguin colony and leave behind a small souvenir to remind the penguins of the possibility for “something else”, even if it is inedible. Unsatisfied, Edna stares wistfully into the horizon wondering, “What else could there be?” If you need a little more color in your lives during these cold and short winter days, try this book for inspiration! Ages 3-6, Kerri Poore
