Chuckling Ducklings and Baby Animal Friends by Aaron Zenz
Here’s a puppy, there’s a kitten . . . yawning fawn and chuckling ducklings
The perfect introduction to animal names and animal groups for the youngest of kids, Chuckling Ducklings features babies of every variety.

Busy-Busy Little Chick by Janice N. Harrington
Little Chick’s mother is all cluck and no action. Mama knows her old nest isn’t the cozy home she and her brood need. But whenever she vows to start building a new house, she’s distracted—by sweety-meaty worms, crunchy-munchy crickets, or picky-pecky corn. Luckily, her Little Chick is an industrious sort. While the rest of his family are stuffing themselves silly, he’s quietly working, bit by bit, day by day.
Janice N. Harrington’s retelling of a little-known Central African story is perfectly matched with Brian Pinkney’s jazzy depiction of a can-do little critter.

Easter Bunny Murder by Leslie Meier
Lucy Stone has always loved covering the annual Easter egg hunt for the Pennysaver. Hosted by elderly socialite Vivian Van Vorst at Pine Point, it’s a swanky event where the eggs are as likely to contain savings bonds as they are jelly beans. But when Lucy arrives, a man dressed as the Easter Bunny emerges, only to drop dead moments later. Lucy discovers the victim is VV’s grandson, and soon learns that not all is as it seems at idyllic Pine Point. Always a social butterfly, VV has been skipping lunch dates with friends, and her much-needed donations to local charities have stopped with no explanation. Maybe she’s going senile, or maybe her heirs are getting a little too anxious to take over her estate…
