     Groovy Joe Ice Cream & Dinosaurs by Eric Litwin

    A colorful rhyming story about Groovy Joe, a fun-loving, guitar-strumming pup. He has a spoon and tub of doggy ice cream, which he shares with his unexpected three roaring dinosaur guests. He wrangles three hungry dinosaurs and soon has them singing, grooving, and sharing!

    Available in the library as a print book and as an eBook.

     

    Gorilla Loves Vanilla by Chae Strathie and Nicola O’Byrne.

    Sam's Sundaes is the best place on Jelly Bean Street to get your favorite ice cream flavor! Five animal customers make increasingly crazy demands, asking for ice cream treat of their dreams and the story concludes with a vanilla-loving gorilla whose basic order causes envy. A deliciously funny story and a catchy read-aloud.

    Dude! by Aaron Reynolds.

    "Dude!" is almost the only word uttered throughout the story. Sometimes it is printed in large capital letters, sometimes in smaller lowercase. A platypus and a beaver are the first two friends to call out to each other as they race to the beach with surfboards. After an encounter with sea-gull droppings, a shark is spotted. It is cajoled with ice cream! A charming summertime picture book with colorful illustrations.
