Our favorite books this week

Or at least the ones I was able to add into an Amazon Widget, but some of these I’ll be writing about again later.

Actually, now that I look at those books, I lied.  Bear’s New Friend was a surprising miss.  We’ve loved all of the other bear books, but this one just didn’t work for us.

 

But, popular ones:

 

Mortimer’s New Garden- I love the story of this mouse who is putting his faith in that little seed growing.  It is a great lesson about faith and trusting God will do what he says.

 

Aunt Minnie and the Twister- a great story about a family and how they weather a tornado.  This is part of a series, I checked out two books from the series, but haven’t read this one yet.

 

Raising Dragons- a little boy discovers an egg, and raises a dragon from it.  His parents are convinced about the benefits of this dragon at first, but slowly come around.

 

Missing Sunflowers- the little boy in this story wants to grow sunflowers and finally gets to, but someone starts stealing his sunflowers.  I love the message about how to deal with tragedy without it breaking you.  My kids liked the little boy.

 

Ladybug Girl and Bumblebee Boy- had been recommended by several other blogs and I saw it in our book order and knew it would be popular.  And it has been.  It’s disappeared into both rooms and rarely been out of one or the other.

 

Well, that’s our books I can remember for this week.  Head on over to Mouse Grows, Mouse Learns to see some other great books.

  1. Bear's New Friend was a miss at our house too. It didn't flow well like her others and was even confusing to me at first. We LOVE the other ones though and Bear keeps asking if I could please get her Bear feels sick but our library doesn't have it yet. Have you read it?

  2. My youngest love the bear book. To them it was a surprise at the end. Little J found it too obvious. I'll have to look for Raising Dragons and the Ladybug Girl and Bumble Bee boy. They sound like something my crowd would enjoy.

  3. We love the Bear series books … haven't read this one yet but I'll remember it might not be as good. The Raising Dragons one sounds cute. We were reading “Good Night, Good Knight” this past week about a knight trying to put 3 little dragons to sleep.
