Can I Give You a Squish?
Written & illustrated by Emily Neilson
Fun and useful. This book presents big ideas of consent, respect, and personal space in a way that is easy for even toddlers to understand. And it's really cute! The setting--the world of mermaids, under the sea--is a big draw for my kids as well.

The Seed of Compassion: Lessons from the Life and Teachings of His Holiness the Dalai Lama
Written by His Holiness The Dalai Lama & illustrated by Bao Luu
I love books that introduce my kids to worth heroes, and I especially love books that actually delve into those heroes' deeds and beliefs in ways that are accessible to young children. This book does both of those things, and, even better, it was written by the Dalai Lama himself! It's well done, and a great blend of learning about the world and learning and thinking about how we should treat others.

The Ocean Calls: A Mermaid Haenyeo Story
Written by Tina Cho & illustrated by Jess X. Snow
The pictures! The colors! The story is great, but the illustrations are what make this book breathtaking. It could work well for a lot of ages, but I'm especially excited to share it with my ocean-loving preschooler.
