Two great books about fort building, it must be a thing!

I found this cool picture book that invites kids to build forts and also reviews the seasons of the year.
By Megan Wagner Lloyd ...
And then this great one for adults popped up with the second part of the title saying that "growing up is optional". Love it!
By Grackle & Pigeon...
We found that our tent at the library got a ton of use. Now we have switched to a rocket for the outer space theme this summer and kids love it, too. If you cannot find me at my desk, I might be hiding out in there! Haha

Bear, chair rhyme with ...

The pictures are so funny and the vocabulary is great (but not forced). Who knew there were so many great words to rhyme with bear and chair?! Bear and mouse are wonderful characters. This could definitely lead to a sequel or kids could write their own!

This book about PATIENCE made me smile over!

I keep thinking about this book which supports the basic adage that good things come to those who wait! Penguin repeatedly tells Mr. Panda that he is willing to wait for Mr. Panda's surprise whild the other curious animals do not have patience. This is a delightful book with a huge payoff for Penguin! (I say serve sprinkled treats when you get to the end. 😍

A circuitous route to a great book!

Oh, this book is so sweet. It contains the cautionary lesson of how too much of a good thing can go sour! It also works on parts of language such as alliteration and rhyme.
The Superintendent of Education in AZ was sworn in with her hand on this book! Read more about this impressive educator below!

A delight!

A delight...this book cleverly teaches some call numbers while the gingerbread man is running amok among the books. Also, the librarian is the heroine in the story. Gotta love it!

This book gives a big laugh

Pinky (a pig) is on his way to place an order for a pizza at the pizzeria. He is gathering snow as he walks through the snowy town. He doesn't even notice that he is turning into a snowman (!) because he is too busy trying to remember the ingredients he is supposed to say when he places his order. Very funny, both when he is a snowman as he places his order AND when he is back to being a boy when the order is ready to deliver home.
