This week, I posted:
–Nonfiction Picture Book Challenge Wednesday– Read my reviews for:
There was a fifty-fifty chance I was going to like this picture book based on her other two books but unfortunately I didn’t like it. The message is one of friendship, which I appreciated.
I read this for this year’s Read for the Record. At first, I was iffy about their choice but I realized what a great read-aloud this is. I also like the fact that it incorporates sight words.
Told in verse, and based on real life situations in Sudan, this is the story of a country and family ruined by war and a girl who wishes she’s able to go to school. This can be recommended to people who are inspired by Nobel Prize winner Malala Yousafzai’s story- of how education for everyone is important to fight for. Illustrations decorate the pages.
A sequel to Hank Finds an Egg, Hank Has a Dream is equally charming in the dioramas it uses to tell the story. Unlike the first one, though, this isn’t wordless, which I wonder if I would have like more if it were!
I love paper engineering and Robert Sabuda is definitely a master of this art form! It was fun to see the characters pop up!
Recommended to me, and I’m surprised I hadn’t read this yet considering I love Frog and Toad. Charming but not my favorite.
I was taken by the illustrations but wasn’t impressed by the story. In fact, I had read this last week and just forgot about it until now!
An old-fashioned tale told in verse about some rather fancy bats.
Expect reviews for these books during Wednesday’s Nonfiction Picture Book Challenge post:
