My grandchildren spent the night, so two days together resulted in reading several books together. I have included their comments or reactions to them in my reviews. As well, I will be posting mini-reviews of the books we read over the last couple of weeks and on our sleepover. All the books were provided by the publishers upon my request. The ratings, ideas and opinions shared are ours alone. Continue reading “Mini-Reviews: Children’s Fiction, Picture Books”
I have not posted reviews of children’s books for a long time because I have not seen my grandchildren to read them to. I like to include their comments or reactions to them in my reviews. Well, we finally had some time together, so I will be posted mini-reviews of the books we read over the last couple of weeks. All the books were provided by the publishers upon my request. The ratings, ideas and opinions shared are ours alone.
This meme was started by Rae Longest at Powerful Women Readers. As I am a grandmother, who loves to read to her grandchildren, a mother who loved to read to and with her children, and a retired teacher librarian, this meme really attracted me. If you love children’s books, or have a favourite from your childhood, join us in introducing them to a new generation of readers. Feel free to use my logo above, but link back to my post as well.
I am going in a different direction today. I read this post on The Savvy Reader Blog and wanted to share it. I thought it was a great day to do that with my Saturday Morning For Kids. Continue reading “Saturday Morning For Kids (February 1, 2020)”
I am always on the lookout for good non-fiction for children. My grandson loves non-fiction books because he likes to learn things, (his words, not mine). Although I have not read these books to him yet, I do plan on getting many of this series for him for his upcoming birthday. All but two of these books come from the Little People, Big Dreams series. The publisher generously provided me with a copy of this book upon request. The rating, ideas and opinions shared are my own. Continue reading “Children’s Biographies – Mini Reviews”
The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate is being made into a movie, so I thought it was about time that I read or listened to this book. I am glad I did. As well, The One and Only Bob will be released in May 2020, and the audiobook is narrated by the amazing Danny Devito, who will be the voice of Bob in movie, The One and Only Ivan. I couldn’t resist listening to it.

I spent two days with my two oldest grandchildren, one at a time over the last week. We were so happy to see each other, that we read books, played games, did puzzles and watched movies. I loved being able to read with them in person and not just over the computer. All the books reviewed in this post contain comments and thoughts from them where applicable. The publishers provided copies of these books via Netgalley, upon request. The rating, ideas and opinions shared are our own. Continue reading “Children’s Book: Mini-Reviews”
