I’m celebrating Picture Book Month by reading at least one picture book a day, and going down the alphabet!
Part 1 of this series can be found here.
Nonfiction titles from E and F can be found here. I reviewed:
My H and I books can be found here. I reviewed:
***Apparently, I’ve accidentally deleted a lot of my book reviews on my blog through incorrectly editing captions for multiple posts.***
My J title:
This would make for a fun read aloud with all the parade of different animals a boy meets on his way to see the king. The end could have been stronger.
My K title:
I thought I would like this sweet story more than I actually did.
My L titles:
Little Owl explores the world around him in these books. Beautiful illustrations.
A cute story about a bear worried when the leaves started to fall and trying to put them back.
I loved the culturally diverse family depicted here. I ended up selling this to a teacher right away. He thought this would be great for kids to see technology has evolved over the years. I can’t believe typewriters have become retro!
My M titles:
I don’t think this sequel was as strong as the first book. I appreciate the realistic portrayal of close siblings and I’m sure there’ll be some kids tickled by the new “language” used.
I was impressed by the dedication and artistry that this surely required. I’m sure there are lots more stories to tell. Reminds me of Maggie Rudy’s books, The House that Mouse Built and I Wish I Had a Pet.
My N titles:
I thought the Pete the Cat books were suffering because of Eric Litwin handing the reins to James Dean and his wife and not having sings in them but this was as bad as those books.
This started out fine but became pointless by the end.
My O titles:
I’d been meaning to read this book and am so glad I finally did. What a wonderful story of accepting one’s difference. It’s such an important lesson to teach others to be more understanding of people who aren’t the same as them. It’s a delightful mix of the film and musical Billy Elliot and Tim Federle’s Nate books.
Expect a review of the following book during next week’s Nonfiction Picture Book Challenge post:
