Favorites this week:
Spookley the Square Pumpkin– I liked this because it’s a cute tale about how it’s good to be different sometimes, and the moral is fun.
The Trojan Horse– Jeff caught Batman trying to sneak this on the camping trip. They were very intrigued by soldiers hiding and then defeating the bad guys.
The Grouchy Ladybug– This was my boy’s favorite story a few years ago. It was to the point I tried hiding the book. Now three years later I still remember reading it 5 or more times a day. Ugh. But, it’s a great book for telling time and we were learning about ladybugs, so out it came.
The Very Clumsy Click Beetle– quite disappointingly the battery was dead on the library copy. That kind of kills the gimmick of this book. Oh well. It’s still a good story about persevering.
Monster Mischief- can you tell from the list of books my kids have noticed Halloween is coming? This is a fun story about some monsters that are making a rather nasty stew, and then it spills, but the problem is solved and it’s a fun ending.
I forgot to put it in, but our big miss of the week was “Alphabet Stackers,” it was trying to be an alphabet acrostic book, but that made some of the poems very forced and confusing to my guys and to a lesser extent to me. So, that got a big no vote.
Now head on over to Natalie’s blog over at Mouse Grows, Mouse Learns to see more great book recommendations.
