This week, I posted:

Nonfiction Picture Book Challenge Wednesday– Read my reviews for:

Celebrate This Week– This week I celebrate love.

Good Night, Gorilla by Peggy Rathmann [***]- I can't believe I hadn't read this one before. So cute! Perfect for babies!

The Pearl and the Pumpkin by Paul West, Illustrated by W.W. Denslow [**]

The Pearl and the Pumpkin by Paul West, Illustrated by W.W. Denslow [**]- I didn’t particularly enjoy this book recommended and lent to me by a customer. It seemed like a poor imitation of The Wizard of Oz although really the only thing they shared was the illustrator. There were some enjoyable parts but overall it kept missing the mark.

I Am Cow, Hear Me Moo! by Jill Esbaum, Illustrated by Gus Gordon [**]- An overly confident cow faces some of her fears in this charming picture book about self-esteem.

Rating Scale

**= Liked it
***= Recommended
****= Highly Recommended
*****= Favorite

I’m hoping to finish another recommended/lent book Still Life by Louise Penny.

Have a great reading week!

    Goodnight Gorilla looks great. I am on the look out for books as we anticipate the birth of our first grandchild! Have a great week.

    I like the look and visual texture of the Henry Knox story. It reminds me of some of the Civil War calendars I have bought over the years. I hope I can find it in my public library.

    I love the covers for all of the books, they look amazing. ‘Goodnight Gorilla’ may be my favourite because the gorilla looks so cheeky! Thanks for sharing 🙂 I hope you enjoy all of them!

    I loved reading Goodnight Gorilla to a girl I used to babysit. Thank you for bringing back great memories!

    Happy reading this week! 🙂

    Earl, I always come on your website and look for a book I’ve read, but I never find one! You are always lightyears ahead of me with children’s books. It seems like you had a great week. 🙂 Thanks for sharing all of these great titles with us!

    I am barely just catching up on last week’s post, Earl. This is great, I have just pinned a few of your titles for my PBB (picturebook biography) research. Thank you for those titles! Definitely helpful. I haven’t read Goodnight Gorilla yet, will try to look for it in the library.
