I hope you take the time to read some of the posts above!

Countablock by Christopher Franceschelli, Illustrated by Peskimo [***]- It was like Christmas when I unboxed this book at work. I loved Alphablock and I didn't even know about this. Naturally, the art is still awesome. And counting to one hundred has never been so fun!

The Best Book in the World by Rilla Alexander [**]- A cute book about everything that makes reading awesome. Wonderful illustrations. Can be  gift for any voracious reader regardless of age.

Mix It Up! by Hervé Tullet [***]- The best way to talk about this book is not to talk about Press Here since we all loved that book and it was a unique experience for all of us. This follow-up is also good even though now there is a "been there, done that" kind of feeling. It does manage to be different though since it tackles colors and all the things that happen when you mix them up.

    Keep on reading!

    Glad you enjoyed going back to Narnia, Earl. I definitely will find countablock for the 3 year old grandchild. It looks great, & then I discovered there is alpha block, too! Thanks for sharing those, especially.

    Nice selection. The Lion, the Witch, and The Wardrobe had a big impact on me as a reader. It is the type of book that becomes part of you-a point in your timeline of life.

    Thanks for the new book scoop! 🙂 Enjoyed your top recommended bookseller titles as well. Ooohhh enjoy Daughter of Smoke and Bone, I loved it. I actually listened to the first and second audiobook in that series… powerful stories. Probably will relisten sometime soon. Happy reading this week!

    I’ve been waiting for my library to get Bear’s Sea Escape, but they’re a little slow on ordering it. May need to be a personal purchase! I can’t wait for Mix It Up, I’ve only just recently read Press Here!

    I STILL haven’t read Press Here. I see it at the library, pick it up, flip through, say “meh” and put it down. Will try to remedy that this week! I’ve also never heard of Alphablock but will look for it. Sounds like one to share in my Children’s Lit class. Thanks!

    I like your review of Mix It Up. That makes complete sense. Looking at a new book by an author through the lens of an old book is never good. I am also very impressed with your C.S. Lewis reading. Go, Earl, go!

    Oh no! I haven’t read Pete the Cat and the New Guy–a dud? Did you ever get to read the magic sunglasses one (with no song)?
    I cannot wait to play with Mix it Up! Thank you for reminding me about it.

    Hi there Earl, Countablock sounds awesome! I have to beef up my collection of counting and alphabet books – this one sounds like a definite collector’s item. Very happy to read that you enjoyed Narnia. I remember being enamoured with the novels too at one point. I am also looking foward to reading the Laini Taylor series. 🙂
