This week, I posted:
-Nonfiction Picture Book Challenge Wednesday- Read my reviews for:
–Celebrate This Week– This week, I’m celebrating Endings.
[***] I forgot to include this last week. A charming companion to their If An Armadillo Went to a Restaurant this time asking what animals would do in school and answering with some special skill they do.
[***] At first, I was hesitant to read this picture book because the illustrations, while beautiful, seemed too polish. But it is a sweet story of a little girl looking for the present for her mom.
[***] A bunny shares his rules to become a ninja but he reconsiders when he meets a formidable obstacle.
[**] Templeton Gets His Wish- Another one of those “Be Careful What You Wish For” plots which I don’t really like since nothing really changes. It’s one thing to be grateful for what you have. It’s another to have to put up with things when you shouldn’t have to.
[**] I felt like this picture book had unnecessary fold-out pages. But it’s a cute sibling story.
[***] I loved the color scheme and cutesy illustrations and had high hopes for the book. I was fine with the message of friendship but the ending could have been better.
Quick Twitter Review:
Finished Beastly Bones by @Willothewords! Jackaby is my current fave #yalit series. Smart supernatural fun. Read it!
And so the problem is BB doesn’t come out til Sept so I have to wait even longer for the next book! Such is a reader’s life!
Literary puzzles. Codes. Lots of book fun. Some of the things I love in a story- and all set in San Francisco. Fans of Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library will enjoy this mystery where book scavengers roam the city to uncover hidden tomes. But there’s one book that someone is willing to go to great lengths to get!
I also love that one can go to http://bookscavenger.com/ to hide or seek their own book.
Better than Before offered a lot of A-ha moments. The fact I find myself agreeing with Gretchen Rubin more often than not is like living vicariously through her. She applies her research to her life and shares her experiences in a conversational manner that’s accessible.
