You know how much I love children’s books! Picture books with a rhyme and a cadence are my personal favorites. And since I read to five different preschool classes every week, I’m always looking for great new books.
I just received two such books and can hardly wait to read them to the kiddos. Blossom the Book Butterfly heartily endorses both books!
The Legend of Dust Bunnies, a fairy tale was the first book I received this week. The pictures are charming and delightful. But the story is what truly makes this book great. Did you ever wonder where the Dust Bunnies come from? Well, read this wonderful story and you will soon see. The cadence of this book makes it quite easy to read aloud. And the illustrations make it a complete picture book. I highly recommend this one for all your young ones. Five out of five stars
The second book was Dust Fairy Tales Absolutely Aggie also by Michelle Eastman. The description of Aggie made me relate to her so much (she definitely marches to her own beat). Again, the rhyming and cadence made this easy to read aloud. It will definitely entertain young children (it sure entertained me!). Another five star book!
I would also recommend you follow Michelle’s blog at MichelleEastmanBooks and her Amazon author page
A couple of really quick reviews:
The Secret Sense of Wildflower by Susan Gabriel was an easy read. It tells the story of Wildflower (Louisa May) and her sisters adjusting to life without their father. It begs for a sequel, which was indicated will be forthcoming. A light book, yet engaging. Four out of five stars
Thursday the Twelfth by Ionia Martin is a short story. It is a spoof for all of those “Friday the 13th” type movies and books. This book had me laughing out loud in several places. It was ridiculous, as are the movies it was spoofing. But I think one of the lines I laughed the hardest (no pun intended) was Master Bates. Really, this is the kind of humor you can expect from this story. I literally laughed out loud. Best 99 cents I have spent in weeks. Hilarious. Five out of five stars.
