This week, I posted:

Flashback Friday- Sherman Alexie

New Releases

-Lifetime by Lola M. Schaefer and Christopher Silas Neal [**]
-Young Frank, Architect by Frank Viva [**]
Check New Releases for reviews of these two books!

-The Smallest Gift of Christmas by Peter H. Reynolds [*]- Usually Peter H. Reynold’s books are familiar yet surprising at the same time. This was just predictable.

-Bobo the Sailor Man! by Eileen Rosenthal, Illustrated by Marc Rosenthal [*]- The third book in this series finds the characters going outdoors for their latest adventure. I have to admit I’m only reading these books because the cat’s name is Earl.

-The Museum by Susan Verde, Illustrated by Peter H. Reynolds [*]- I think I may have just forgotten to include this in my list a week or so ago. I like any story that promotes creativity. And Peter H. Reynold’s interprative illustrations of famous art work were fun to see.

-Seen Art? by Jon Scieszka, Illustrated by Lane Smith [*]- A little bit of wordplay and a whole lot of fun is what’s in store with this Scieszka/Smith collaboration. I’m glad there are so many books out there for kids that introduces them to art in interesting and unique ways!

-Sherlock Holmes in the Hound of the Baskervilles (BabyLit) by Jennifer Adams, Illustrated by Alison Oliver [*]
-Jabberwocky (BabyLit) by Jennifer Adams, Illustrated by Alison Oliver [*]
-Anna Karenina (BabyLit) by Jennifer Adams, Illustrated by Alison Oliver [*]
This latest set of board book primers from BabyLit tackles sounds, nonsense, and fashion, respectively.

-Everything I Need To Know I Learned From a Little Golden Book by Diane E. Muldrow [*]- Very nostalgic looking at the illustrations from different Little Golden Book titles. Makes for a great gift book for readers. And, the message is sweet and simple.

-The Amazing Animal Alphabet of Twenty-Six Tongue Twisters by Robert Pizzo [*]

-Nicholas on Vacation by René Goscinny, Illustrated by Jean-Jacques Sempé [**]- I love visiting Nicholas and his friends. I enjoyed the serialized aspect of this collection and the running gags.

Rating Scale

*= It was OK
**= Liked it
***= Recommended
****= Highly Recommended
*****= Favorite

I’m still reading The Ghost Map by Steven Johnson. But as you can probably tell, I end up reading other books and that’s why it makes me seem like I’m the slowest reader ever.

Have a great reading week!

    I also enjoyed Have you seen art. It’s actually part of a series that Lane Smith and Scieszka did – which includes Math Curse and Science Verse? Have you read those? They’re also cool. 🙂

    Seen Art? sounds like something I want to see. I like Scieszka/Smith collaborations. Come see what I read last week here. Have a great week!
