Rating:

Review: 

It’s bedtime on the farm. When pig goes to his sty, he finds cow there and tells him to “Go sleep in your own bed!” This sets off a chain reaction as animals are relocated to their own beds. The simple repetitive text encourages children to “read” along and the pictures are delightful

Book Review: Dive In! A Topsy-Turvy-Say-It-Out-Loud Underwater Adventure

Dive In!  A Topsy-Turvy-Say-It-Out-Loud Underwater Adventure
Author: 
Recess Monkey
Rating: 
5 stars = Bohemian Rhapsody Awesome!
Review: 

I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of fun and laughter we had with this book. I expected it to be lame, but it was a fun read-aloud. It's an interactive book where you end up sounding like you're an undersea explorer, holding you breath as you dive in, and participating in silly shenanigans. We had a great time with it.
