Book Review: There's a Dragon in Your Book

There's a Dragon in Your Book
Author: 
Fletcher, Tom
Rating: 
4 stars = Really Good
Review: 

If you’re a fan of interactive books, you should check this one out. It
starts with an egg which hatches into a dragon. That baby dragon sneezes and
sets the book on fire. Use your imagination (and follow the instructions) to
help save the day!

Book Review: Go Sleep in Your Own Bed!

Go Sleep in Your Own Bed!
Author: 
Fleming, Candace
Rating: 
4 stars = Really Good
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: Still Stuck

Still Stuck
Author: 
Yoshitake, Shinsuke
Rating: 
4 stars = Really Good
Review: 

While getting ready to take a bath, a little person gets stuck in their shirt and then imagines all the things that will happen if they never get out. Kids and adults will love the humor of Still Stuck, by Shinsuke Yoshitake, and it will certainly spark some creativity of their own on how to get unstuck! This is a crowd-pleaser for kids age 2 - 7.
