17th Ever Library Hop: Seattle Carnegie Libraries Edition– I recently went back to Seattle for a quick getaway. I’ll write more about it soon but this is just a quick recap of some of the libraries I visited.

My favorite podcast to listen to is Grace Lin and Alvina Ling’s Book Friends Forever.

On their most recent episode- Episode #35-, they answered my question about what they thought of Amazon.com. I really appreciated their thoughts. I should really do a post about why even though I think we should avoid the monopolizing, nonpaying of taxes, and undervaluing local businesses corporation, I find it almost unavoidable- I copy/paste my reviews from Goodreads, after all- because of its convenience. Until then, listen to that episode and feel free to share your thoughts with me.

The Upper Case: Trouble in Capital CityThe Upper Case: Trouble in Capital City by Tara Lazar
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Delightful with a capital D. Readers who love punny humor will LOL through this mystery of the missing capital letters.

Sunny Day: A Celebration of Sesame StreetSunny Day: A Celebration of Sesame Street by Joe Raposo
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The classic theme song from the beloved children’s television program is brought to life by many of today’s most talented illustrators in time for the show’s fifty-year anniversary.

Sofia Valdez, Future Prez (The Questioneers Book 4)Sofia Valdez, Future Prez by Andrea Beaty
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Meet Iggy Peck, Rosie Revere, and Ada Twist’s classmate Sofia Valdez as she takes on city hall to set up a park on the landfill site that injured her Abuelo.

Small in the CitySmall in the City by Sydney Smith
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This has been getting a lot of positive reviews and I finally read it. This would be a good example of a picture book to not read the summary before experiencing the story. It’s amazing what Sydney Smith was able to accomplish with this.

Come Next SeasonCome Next Season by Kim Norman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It’s a year in the lives of two kids as they savor each season and anticipate all the possibilities of what comes next. Beautiful illustrations pair well with the lyrical text.

  1. Thanks for the note on Small in the City, Earl. I haven’t yet read this one and, thankfully, I cannot remember what it’s supposed to be about. So I’ll plan to go in surprised. Have a wonderful reading week!

  2. I love Grace Lin’s books, so I’ll definitely have to check out the podcast. I’m also interested in Upper Case, sounds like fun!
