I helped set up for the library’s Children’s Book Fair yesterday morning and got to see a wonderful performance to kick-off the event. It was a very interactive interpretation of Anansi and the Moss-Colored Rock. I was really impressed and I hoped it got the kids-and their parents- excited for some literary fun!
Tables were set up to do all kinds of crafts. A reading area promoted all kinds of books in different languages. Plus, there were a couple of caped crusaders going by the names of Bookman and Bookwoman! And,every child got to take home a free book!
This week, I posted:

–Celebrate This Week– I’m celebrating the happy moments that transpired during the past week.
A delightful new series (Mini Myths) that introduces the youngest of readers to mythology in fun relatable ways! Information about the actual myths are included. I love how playful the illustrations are. For example, in the Hercules book, the blocks depict the different tasks he undertook!
Sweet story about a very independent resourceful girl who opens up her home to wayward creatures. Cute illustrations, very expressive. I really wanted more from this- perhaps it can crossover to a graphic novel?
Expect a review of this on Monday for Hobbit Day!
Delightfully dark picture book about a dog and a rat that stumble upon a “flat” rabbit. Think Weekend of Bernie’s for kids.
I decided to read this because we were having a Grandparents Day Celebration at work. This was a super touching story about a boy visiting his grandmother in the city. The illustrations are superb.
A retired elementary school teacher was so excited to find a copy of this book that she made me read it before buying it. A fun picture book that will have readers guessing along! This would be a hit during a Halloween themed story time. The illustrations were something else!
I read these two titles for our upcoming Family Book Club:
Expect reviews for them later this week!
