Elderly Eugenia Lincoln has always bossed around her younger sister, still known only as Baby. When Baby ends a lifelong tradition of obedience and declares she is taking “a necessary journey” against Eugenia’s wishes, the latter can only demand, Where Are You Going, Baby Lincoln? (Candlewick, $14.99). On board a train, Baby meets three strangers who help her see that the world is full of joy and possibility. Despite this fulfilling journey, Baby misses her sister and soon discovers that Eugenia has missed her, too. Two-time Newbery Medalist Kate DiCamillo’s latest installment of Tales from Deckawoo Drive extols the value of both independence and family as Chris Van Dusen’s dynamic illustrations convey the story’s warmth and humor. Ages 5-8.

Pedro is one very busy student: he is collecting bugs for a school project (and hoping that his little brother doesn’t let them all go), trying out for goalie of his soccer team, forming a mystery club with his friends, and even running for class president. If anyone can do it, Pedro, First-Grade Hero (Picture Window, $4.95), can! Fran Manushkin’s latest book has short chapters that act as self-contained vignettes, which are simple enough for young readers to digest but full of fun. Tammie Lyon’s colorful and expressive illustrations help tell the story and bring it to life. Ages 6-8.
