“More laughs the little guy, more more more!”

blurb
Allierd22

When I was a kid I would always love it when my mom or dad would bounce me up and down and pretend to be a horse. I would always ask them to do it over and over again. Just like these kids all have something they love that they want done over and over again such as swinging them around or chasing them

This book was full of colorful and attention grabbing illustrations that are surely award winning. This book was full of cute stories about the different kinds of child and caregiver relationships. It could have been a mom, dad, or grandma. Even though they were different their love for these kids is all the same and the kids all love their families

Chanticleer and the Fox | Geoffrey Chaucer

“She was never sick from overeating. Her table was usually set with only white and black-milk and dark bread, of which there was no shortage-and sometimes there was broiled bacon and an egg or two, for she was, as it were, a kind of dairy woman” this quote shows how she lives modestly and kindly and still is satisfied in life with what she has

Chanticleer and the Fox | Geoffrey Chaucer

This book makes me think of when I would watch little house on the prairie with my family and how the family in the show was always so happy even when they only had small pleasures every so often in life

This award winning book was uplifting and sweet. It showed the simple pleasures in life, and how even the small things can bring such joy to the people around us. We must cherish it all and not be overly taken by flattery from others or else it could become our demise

I loved the part where she lost her sweater and then found two just like it, but she knew which one was hers because her mom wrote her name in it like she was supposed to

This book was definitely one of my favorites so far. This award winning book was not only cute and fun to read, but it will teach children how our names are a part of who we are. They are our identity and we should be proud of what we are called and what our names mean to us and to our loved ones. We hear our names so often that we should appreciate what they symbolize

Funny Little Woman | Arlene Mosel

When the monster came out and took her away to cook for him and his fellow oni monsters, I couldn‘t help but think back to the children‘s books I read when I was a kid about monsters and how I was always afraid of them!

This award winning book was very unique in the use of words, pictures, and overall style. This book definitely shows the uniqueness of cultures and beliefs as well as making it cute and interesting to read. Children may not find this book quite as exciting as some of the others I have reviewed, but still something definitely worth sharing!

Once a Mouse... | Marcia Brown

This book made me think about when I was a child and I would try to show off my accomplishments or something extremely cool that I had which nobody else I knew did. One thing I never thought about was that even though the things I had technically belonged to me, I would not have had them if it were not for my parents, or friends that had given them to me

This award winning book was not only interesting to look at, it also was a great lesson to share with young readers because it embodies the way human nature tends to be. We are prideful, and sometimes forget the people in our lives who have helped us get to the places we are at today. When the mouse was turned into a tiger, he was so prideful that he forgot the hermit was the reason for it all, so in the end he became a mouse again.

This award winning book was full of beautiful, colorful illustrations that are such joys to look at. This story talks about the ways in which books, literature, writing, and story telling can be used to make messages heard and become one with the world even if you are unfamiliar with your surroundings. It is a positive and lighthearted book about starting a new life

This book was definitely one of my favorites so far. It is an award winning book for so many reasons! This book is all about kindness and being willing to share and give to others when you can. This book will teach kids about selflessness and the willingness to help one another which is a lesson that will carry them through life. It also shows kids that giving to others who have given to you is a fine idea

During this book when McCloskey was talking about all the sensory things you will experience on the island such as the rain pouring on you, the birds chirping, the sun on your face, it was all so calming and relaxing

This award winning book contains beautiful images, lovely descriptions, and amazing writing by Robert McCloskey. This book is about the adventures of a family trip. All the things you will see, feel, do, smell, and experience. This book makes you feel as if you were really there on the islands with the family

When I was a child I would go to my grandparents house and spend hours on their porch swing. We loved watching the people walk by in the neighborhood while sitting on the swing having snacks and telling stories. It was so cute to see the child having that experience with this window

This award winning book was cute, sweet, and very relatable for children since every single child loves going over to their grandparent‘s house and exploring. Children would be able to see so many things from this book in their own lives and would think about the kinds of things they do with their grandparents when they go visit

This is Not My Hat | Jon Klassen

“Well someone has seen me already, but they promised they would not tell” this quote was so funny because the little fish seems so sure that he is in the clear after stealing this larger fish‘s hat

blurb

This is Not My Hat | Jon Klassen

When the author uses only pictures to convey the large fish‘s displeasure with the situation he is making children think about what the art is trying to say. He is asking children to read artwork instead of words which involves using their imagination and inference skills

This book kept my attention and made me laugh the whole time. I love the way his father seemed so oblivious to the idea that there was a real penguin in his house and not a stuffed one!

“One Cool Friend” was a charming, funny, adorable, and hilarious book all in one! One of my most favorite children‘s books I have read! This book dives deep into the imaginations of children and what they would want to do if they saw their favorite animal at the zoo! They always want to take it home with them!

This would be a great story to read to kids because it shows them healthy ways to deal with anger other than hitting or throwing a fit. It‘s a great story that they would enjoy

“When Sophie Gets Angry-Really, Really Angry” is a very accurate representation of what happens when you‘re young and have to learn how to share. It‘s a cute way to show how small issues can later be forgotten and all is well at the end of the day!
