Toddler-PreS—This new series features three friends—Glub-Glub, a fish; Clyde, a dog; and Bink, a bird—who learn different lessons about life. Calling itself "a little moral story," each book focuses on a specific issue. For example, in Rainy Day, readers discover that Glub-Glub does not like the rain. His face conveys his feelings perfectly as he gets dressed in his yellow raincoat. Once he is outside, he runs into his friends playing in the rain and puddles. Glub-Glub realizes that maybe the rain isn't so bad after all as he joins them in the fun. Bright graphic illustrations allow for the tales to be told without referencing the text. A good choice for both storytimes and one-on-one sharing.
