A fun rhyming read-aloud. Could have used more of a story.

The WhaleThe Whale by Vita Murrow
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
The illustrations alone will make you pick up this mostly wordless picture books. Newspaper articles gives you a background on what the kids are up to and what happens on their search for an elusive whale.

Are We There Yet?Are We There Yet? by Dan Santat
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This book suffered the too-much-hype syndrome. I had too high of an expectation for it. With that said, it is absolutely a good and fun and entertaining read!

Tell Me a Tattoo StoryTell Me a Tattoo Story by Alison McGhee
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
There’s definitely an audience for this kind of book. A boy wants to know what his dad’s tattoos stand for and the dad happily tells a story of love that will tug at any reader’s heart!

This was too sentimental even for me. It’s a sweet predictable story.

    I’ll keep an eye out for that tattoo book — not something you typically see in children’s books!
