A Parade of Elephants (Greenwillow, $18.99) isn't something you see every day, but it's just life as usual for five little pachyderms. Their daily journey takes them through a panoply of landscapes, from hills to caves and everything in between. While the herd's daytime adventures will fascinate future bookworks, nightfall brings a starry bedtime ritual and a sleepy ending that will have grownups joining Kevin Henkes in wishing sleepers everywhere a gentlre "good night." Age 3-6.
