-Celebrate This Week- This week, I’m celebrating teachers. Read my review for:
I got a kick seeing Pickles the fire cat as a friend of Jenny’s so I ended up reading this picture book in addition to Jenny and the Cat Club. Also divided into shorter stories but for the “I Can Read” audience, it’s amusing to see the animals interacting with their human friends- they don’t talk to one another in the same language but understand what the other is saying regardless.
Fans of Mo Willems’ Elephant and Piggie looking for longer tales will delight in the antics of these two friends who despite their differences are there for one another.
A hilarious book about siblings! A wolf cub is adopted into a bunny family. While Dot’s parents find him oh-so-adorable, she’s sure he’s going to eat them all once he gets bigger!
This board book is rather dark but super funny. A wolf gets himself ready to eat the reader!
A cheese wheel is mistaken for the moon in this hilarious tale about a squirrel and his friends trying to get it back up where it belongs. The illustrations are superb!
A cute story about an unlikely friendship. I’m glad it wasn’t another one of those books where a creature befriends a bird only to mysteriously lose him or her during wintertime and then is surprised when it comes back in the spring.
This was a book I’d only heard about since working at the bookstore. It’s been super popular which is surprising considering it is a much older title. This collection of stories features mild-mannered feline Jenny Linsky and her friends. Perfect for young readers and read-alouds.
There’s something screwy in Serenity, New Mexico.
Everything should be perfect. In fact, it is. There’s no crime, no poverty, nothing bad to speak of at all in this small town.
But five kids will learn a devastating secret that will change their lives forever in this fast-paced, exhilarating first book in a new trilogy.
Offering various points of views, the picture is completed piece by piece. Boys and girls will find something to enjoy in this adventure story.
It’ll be criminal to miss out on such an exciting read!
(Aside from some questionable vocal choices, the audio book was very good.)
Expect reviews for this book later this week.
