With it being a holiday weekend and one usually spent with family while enjoying the last days of summer, reviewing a children’s picture book seemed like the perfect book review post for today. Different Like Me is written by Xochitl Dixon and illustrated by Bonnie Lui.
One Fish, Two Fish… Today is Dr. Seuss’ birthday. Theodor Geisel would be 116 years old. This master of the creative word left us a treasury of stories for both young and old. From learning one’s ABC’s to recognizing that a person’s a person no matter how small to the possibility that a grinch’s heart can grow three sizes in one day.
Candy Apple Blessings is a favorite book in our house, so when I saw that illustrator Maddie Frost had come out with a new book, I jumped at the chance to review it. Just like Candy Apple Blessings explores the wonders of fall, Jelly Bean Blessings highlights the joys of springtime.
Spring is all about new life. What better way to show that to little readers than an adorable touch-and-feel board book? An Easter Prayer, by Amy Parker and illustrated by Alison Edgson, wonderfully captures this spirit.
You’re my Little Sweet Pea is an adorable board book illustrating just how much a parent loves their little one. With delightful rhyme, it makes the perfect bedtime story for the baby in your life.
When do I Love You, illustrated by Marta Cabrol, is a charming twist off the popular children’s book Guess How Much I Love You. Instead of asking how much, this book asks when, or perhaps better, where. From riding in a truck to sailing in a boat, your little one will know that they cannot go any place where your love will not follow.
Do you have a good night ritual with your children? In How do you say Good Night, illustrated by Catalina Echeverri, Zoey the Zebra wonders how the animals around her say good night. The story is her search for the answer to her question.
For a fun children’s board book, take a look at The Cow said Neigh: a farm story by Rory Feek. It’s brightly colored pages, illustrated by Bruno Robert, will draw in young readers. Add a few sound effects and this story can make children giggle at its silliness.
It may not be popular, but I love it when the weather turns cold. I love wearing fuzzy sweaters, bundling in cozy blankets, and drinking hot chocolate. So when I had a chance to review a book all about winter chilliness, I had to investigate. Cozy, Snowy Cuddles wonderfully captures that cozy winter feeling in a touch-and-feel board book for little readers.
