Skunk and Badger set off on a new adventure searching for Important Rocks, and they go camping in the woods. All Skunk wanted to do was eat a leisurely breakfast and read the Sunday “New Yak Times” Book Review, but instead he forces himself to trek miles through the countryside with a massive pack on his back. A simple rock expedition turns into a wild adventure with cats, rats, bears, and a very strange egg.
Skunk and Badger are so funny and adorable! I love the warmth of their friendship and how they laugh together. In this second book, their friendship is put to the test, and they have to prove their loyalty.Continue reading
Princess Naomi Helps a Unicorn: A Dance-It-Out Creative Movement Story for Young Movers
by Once Upon a Dance (Goodreads Author), Ethan Roffler (Illustrator)
4 out of 5 stars
Princess Naomi is fed up with everything, so she goes galloping on her horse. They find a unicorn who needs help. The unicorn leads them to a mysterious cave opening, and only Naomi is small enough to fit inside and find what the unicorn needs.
I loved this cute story! Naomi is so brave and smart to help the unicorn, and the whole fairy tale setting is so fun!Continue reading
There is a parade of animals all squeezing for more room in this book. They crowd onto the page from all sides, but how will they ever make enough room for the biggest mammal of them all, the blue whale, to fit in?
This is such a cute book! The first page starts with just one or two animals, and then they gradually pile in more and more animals of all kinds, until finally the page is filled with a hundred animals. I like that there is a chart at the end of the book that lists all one hundred animals, so you can hunt through the pages and find them all and count them up.Continue reading
In this retelling of Sleeping Beauty, the princess spends her childhood tending the palace gardens and learning about all the plants and flowers there. But when the evil witch introduces a thorny plant into the garden, the princess pricks her finger and falls into an enchanted slumber.
The reader learns all about flowers, herbs, thorny bushes, fruit trees, and flowering shrubs. There is even a vegetable garden in the palace!
Discovering the Underground with Snow White (Fairytale Encyclopedia, #4)
by Tom Velcovsky, Jakub Cenkl (Illustrator)
4 out of 5 stars
This book combines the fairy tale retelling of Snow White with information about underground structures, animal burrows, plant root systems, underground rivers, caves, subways, and mines. There is even a section about mythological creatures who traditionally live underground like trolls, gnomes, and dragons.
I love the design of the pages, where the main page has the fairy tale story, and then you can pull out the big folding page to reveal all the information about the garden plants and underground burrows.
The illustrations are all so delicate and graceful! I love the soft art style, and the beautiful colors.
The fairy tale retelling is delightful, and the information about the garden is organized into small paragraphs that make it easy to read.
Disclaimer: I received a copy of both these books from the publisher in exchange for a free and honest review. All the opinions stated here are my own true thoughts, and are not influenced by anyone.
This cute board book teaches all about how rockets can go to outerspace, how astronauts can land on moon, and how they reenter earth’s atmosphere for a safe return. The die-cut pages are layered to show the inside of the space ship, and all the different stages of space travel.
I love this such interesting little book! This is the perfect way to introduce rockets and space travel to little readers. The illustrations are bright and fun with a little mouse hidden on every page. The design is simple and clear, and the text is easy to understand.
This book tells the history of musical instruments around the world with short bios about famous musicians and composers. My favorite part is the development of the piano since I am a pianist. There are sections about rock bands, percussion, woodwinds, string orchestras, jazz bands, brass bands, and military bands. There are chapters about beautiful instruments from India, Russia, Scotland, Mongolia, China, Japan, and Africa.Continue reading
Hugo no puede dormir. Recorre la jungla preguntando a los animales si saben por qué no puede dormir. El elefante, el mono y el tigre están muy molestos porque los despiertan en medio de la noche. Incluso la gacela está molesta, aunque es educada con Hugo. Finalmente, el cocodrilo le dice a Hugo la verdadera razón por la que no puede dormir. ¡Es un murciélago nocturno!
¡Me encantó esta linda historia! Hay mucha repetición en la historia cuando Hugo despierta a cada animal, lo cual es perfecto para lectores jóvenes que aman la repetición.

Stuart is a mouse born to a family of people. His parents and older brother are not quite sure what to make of him. They ask the doctor if their new baby mouse is quite healthy, but Stuart proves to them that he is more resilient than they realize. Through all his adventures, Stuart keeps his courage and tenacity.
I just love this whimsical story! There is always something hilarious happening, and I especially love the story line about Stuart sailing a ship in Central Park. Margalo, the little bird, is a lovely character, so sweet and helpless and delicate.Continue reading
Five Children and It
by E. Nesbit, Edith Nesbit
5 out of 5 stars
Five siblings find a Psammead, a sand fairy, who agrees to grant them one wish every day. They wish for money, beauty, wings, and all manner of foolish things, and every wish somehow goes terribly wrong as the consequences catch up with them.
I always love this book every time I reread it! It’s so whimsical and charming. I just love the setting and the time period in the early 1900s.
The siblings are silly and cross and affectionate. They tease each other and fight and take care of each other. In other words, they are just like regular siblings.Continue reading
