Little Beauty is about the power and need of friendship and love. Anthony Browne needs few words to tell this story as he uses color and character expressions to help highlight his themes through the gentle giant gorilla and his unlikely friend the kitten.

Silly Billy tells the story of a boy who worries. The story and illustrations are easy to connect with as we have all worried about something and the illustrators contrast between light and dark colors helps create mood throughout the book. The attached true story of the worry dolls shared at the end is a nice cultral learning experience.
