Thanks to Unleashing Readers and Teach Mentor Texts for this meme!


Apparently, I already read these board books back in November 2021 but didn’t review them on my blog. These were great “bite-sized” versions of the picture book biography series. Maybe I’ll end up actually reading those books one of these days?

BananaBanana by Zoey Abbott
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Delightfully quirky. Fun story featuring a father and daughter duo and what happens when the dad gets himself a distracting new plaything.

TidesongTidesong by Wendy Xu
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Wendy Xu has created a wonderful magical world readers would want to live in. I wish there were more. Perfect for fans of The Tea Dragon Society series.

Glassheart (Thirteens, #3)Glassheart by Kate Alice Marshall
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A satisfying conclusion to the Thirteens trilogy. Readers who love a dark fantasy that’s not too scary will enjoy this. Perfect for fans of The Land of Stories.

Thanks for visiting my blog. Happy Reading!

A silly story about counting squirrels. Told in rhyme.

The Night FrolicThe Night Frolic by Julie Berry
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Dreamy illustrations. Perfect for fans of Where the Wild Things Are and Dream Animals. Fantastical read for bedtime.

When Things Aren't Going Right, Go LeftWhen Things Aren’t Going Right, Go Left by Marc Colagiovanni
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A feel-good picture book of letting things go for a better life. If only life was that simple!

Stitches: A Handbook on Meaning, Hope, and RepairStitches: A Handbook on Meaning, Hope, and Repair by Anne Lamott
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A spontaneous read while browsing the library shelves. My word of the year is Meaning and I enjoyed Bird by Bird so this caught my eye. I think you have to be in a certain mood to read this otherwise it’ll just seem like a Chicken Soup for the Soul entry.

Well, as usual, WordPress proves to be difficult by not being able to edit things properly. So pardon the weird format of this week’s post.

  1. I’m watching squirrels out my window so “How Many Squirrels. . .” looks funny. I bookmarked Tidesong & Banana, too, Earl. It’s interesting to me about those Board books. They don’t seem to fit my idea of books for very young readers! I have a copy of “Go Left”, enjoyed it a lot! Happy Reading this week! Thanks for all you shared!
