Book A Day: Day 17

Today's book has beautiful eye-catching illustrations by author Anita Lobel (which is part of the reason who I was drawn to it because I love anyone named Lobel!)
Nini ventures out and and away from her warm house to explore the interesting sights and smells of the outdoors. It's a great adventure until night comes and Nini is scared by the other animals lurking in the woods - "This is not so nice anymore," thought Nini. Of course she eventually makes her way back to her cozy home, but you get the idea that this won't be the last time she runs away from home. Any child who has exercised their independence be it through sleeping alone or visiting Grandma will see themselves in Nini! Found with other picture books on the New shelf. Ms. Eileen
