Our latest library haul and post-read impressions. Reading like you would a book from left to right…
Emma & the Whale has gorgeous illustrations and clever imaginative inserts. Safe & Sound makes you feel all warm and loved. Nara and the Island is an unexpected treasure. Florette is visual beauty. A Bike Like Sergio’s reminds us to always choose the right.
Antoinette, who doesn’t love a good companion book. Noisy Night, we’ve got more to share with this one. Stay tuned. I Am (Not) Scared is a laugh. Little Blue Chair is an absolute charmer. On our to buy list and most probably featured again on our feed in the future. Egg is a lovely one for littles. All Ears, All Eyes, I wanted to like it, but it didn’t quite get there for us.
Hank’s Big Day: The Story of a Bug is a cute adventure. CY Makes a Friend is a quirky tale about putting yourself out there despite it being difficult or awkward at times. You Can Read is a wonderful tribute to reading and how wonderful it truly is. Delivery is all heart. One Day in the Eucalyptus, Eucalyptus Tree is a great read aloud, but not for anyone who has a weak stomach. Lol.
I Don’t Want Curly Hair! teaches us self-love. Billions of Bricks is a brill counting book for 2’s 5’s 10’s and 20’s. North, South, East, West is about choice and discovery, illustrated in dreamy colours. Tiger, Tiger is good rollicking fun. Henry and the Yeti, we all thought this one was “Awesome!” Ayto’s character representations are adorable, and you can never have too many stories that encourage kids to have courage and believe in themselves. Also on our to buy list.
This is a Serious Book is all silly. Max Speed is an imaginative adventure with bold colours and words. Tony is tender and timeless. I’m Going to Eat This Ant has great momentum and a crack up ending. And, Bunny’s Book Club is the sweetest. Every book lover must have a library card, even bunnies and bears, moles and mice.
