–Nonfiction Picture Book Challenge Wednesday– Read my review for:
–Celebrate This Week– This week I’m celebrating library hopping!
A sequel to Oliver and His Alligator, the said-boy has another adventure- this time involving a rock and his imagination. I didn’t have a particularly strong emotion about this book either way but I do like Paul Schmid’s illustrations.
I can see why everyone enjoys this book so much. Very funny and cute!
It’s been a long time since I first read this that it seemed completely new and fresh. There were definitely some things I didn’t remember- and a particular character was a big surprise!
I enjoyed the writing style. The style was very “Come children, let me tell you a story.” For some reason, I found the repeated warnings of not closing the wardrobe door to be hilarious. I’m sure it was a joke.
Edmund was a delightfully wicked character but with very understandable motives. The Professor was an interesting character as well. (Some editions of the books list a cast of characters which spoils who he is!)
I can’t wait to read more!
Reading this play was still an emotional despite having seen the film (which was amazing) and knowing what was going to happen.
Ned Weeks is such a very unique character for all his faults and imperfections.
Told in a simple verse-like structure similar, this would be a nice book for kids who are dealing with having to move or have recently moved. I like how the illustrator was able to depict movement.
Sweet and warm. My only drawback for these kinds of books is that they seem to only work for very specific people.
Everyone’s been talking about this book it seems! It’s a sweet message but maybe I had just read too much of the same theme recently that it just seemed repetitive. Reminded me of Mo Willem’s City Dog, Country Frog. And, maybe I had too high of an expectation since this was published by Enchanted Lion Books press.
Expect a review for this during my Nonfiction Picture Book Challenge post on Wednesday.
This was recommended by a librarian after I told her about What Would You Do With an Idea? It’s a cute story about how the right teacher can spark a student’s creativity.
A quick and quirky read to find out some fun facts of fifty famous people. Worth checking out!

This week, hopefully, I can finish another Narnia novel for my #SummerOfNarnia Reading Challenge. And, I need to get started with Shelby Bach’s Of Giants and Ice for my work’s Family Book Club.
Have a great reading week!
