I was supposed to post these reviews on Tuesday but… better late than never.
Cat Says Meow by Michael Arndt [***]- With its bold designs and creative use of fonts and onomatopoeia, I’m sure this will be a big hit with kids and grown-ups alike. Can readers find the letters that spell out the sound the animal makes?
I Didn’t Do My Homework Because… by Davide Cali, Illustrated by Benjamin Chaud [**]- The illustrations are what really made me want to read this funny take on a very familiar excuse-generating problem. Benjamin Chaud also drew The Bear’s Song.
The Book that Will Make You Love Books by Francoize Boucher [**]- Book Lovers will laugh out loud while agreeing with all the reasons why books are great. Quirky humor and wacky illustrations.
Tiny Rabbit’s Big Wish by Margarita Engle, Illustrated by David Walker [***]- A tiny rabbit wishes to be like the different animals he sees but ultimately realizes he may be perfect just the way he is. Cute illustrations add to this sweet story.
