Good News, Bad News

This brilliant picture book serves as a great tool for teaching kids about friendship, cause and effect, and the importance of staying positive, and it manages to do all this using just four words! Sweet and funny illustrations feature rabbit and mouse as they try to make the most of a rainy-day picnic. Because of the book’s open-ended nature, it provides fantastic opportunities for parents and kids to riff off of the illustrations and do some storytelling of their own. (Chronicle Books, $11.55)
