Chu. That's my Name, Man.

Chu's Day by Neil Gaiman & Illustrated by Adam Rex: A day in the life of a little panda bear named Chu and what he can do.

Chu's Day is a great introduction into the world of this picture book.  You get to go with Chu and his parents to the library, a diner and to the circus. It is such a cute little book and a delight to open up and read.  It exudes happiness.

Adam Rex is also fantastic illustrator.  Every animal and scene in the book is so lovingly drawn that it steals your breath for a moment.

Chu's First Day of School by Neil Gaiman & illustrated by Adam Rex: It is Chu's first day of school and he is worried about that one thing he can do.

In Chu's First Day of School, we get to see a little panda bear who is not only nervous about meeting other animal children but also worried about that special thing he can do.  It's a hopeful book and I love how it ends with saying goodnight to little Chu.  The perfect book for parents to share with their kids who are about to enter kindergarten.

Adam Rex is again the illustrator of this book and it really would not be the same without him.  Gaiman and Rex make a great team and I hope they never part where Chu is concerned.
