Grandfather Gandhi by Arun Gandhi and Bethany Hegedus, Illustrated by Evan Turk [***]
Rainbows Never End by Laura Lyn Disiena, Illustrated by Pete Oswald [***]
–Review: One Crazy Summer
– Read my review for:
One Crazy Summer by Rita Williams-Garcia [***- My Pick of the Week!]
–Celebrate This Week
I Wish I Had a Pet by Maggie Rudy [***]- An absolutely adorable book. I can’t wait until Maggie Rudy comes to our store in July!
The Grudge Keeper by Mara Rockliff [***]- I had to read this when a customer kept coming in to buy multiple copies. This beautifully illustrated picture book not only delivers a great messages of not needing to hold on to grudges but is a very entertaining read filled with a rich vocabulary!
The Hueys in None the Number by Oliver Jeffers [**]- This counting adventure is probably my favorite in the Hueys series. I actually laughed.
One Beetle Too Many: The Extraordinary Adventures of Charles Darwin by Kathryn Lasky, Illustrated by Matthew Trueman [***]
Expect a review for this during my Nonfiction Picture Book Challenge post on Wednesday.
*= It was OK
**= Liked it
****= Highly Recommended
I plan on reading The Chronicles of Narnia (in publication order) this summer. First up, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe!
I’m also reading Margi Preus’ West of the Moon.
Have a great reading week!
