Two excellent, different surveys are good additions to any picture book collection and are recommended picks. Marthe Jocelyn's Sam Sorts (9781101918050, $16.99) is all about counting and making categories as it focuses on young Sam, who begins to organize things but quickly comes to realize that real organization by type of item is a challenge. As colors, shapes, and purposes conflict, how can Sam create a system that works for some one hundred things? Young readers help Sam sort as he faces up to the challenge. Linda Bailey and Kass Reich's Carson Crosses Canada (9781101918838, $16.99) tells of Carson the dog and his best friend, who set out from Canada's west coast to visit Annie's sister on the east coast, traveling through each province of Canada. While young Canadian picture book readers will gain the most from this geographic exploration, American kids will also find it an inviting survey that teaches much about Canada's countryside in the course of presenting a fine adventure survey.
