Chick ‘n’ Pug by Jennifer Sattler

Tuesday, April 5th, 2011 in Books/Reading, Tuesday: Weekly Book Review

We are on a book roll over here! We have found a lot of fun children’s books lately. Chick ‘n’ Pug by Jennifer Sattler is another one that has been added to our list. Chick has this book that he LOVES about a super-hero Pug. He reads it over and over while he’s stuck in the […]

The Apple Pip Princess by Jane Ray

Thursday, March 31st, 2011 in Books/Reading, Tuesday: Weekly Book Review

The Apple Pip Princess by Jane Ray is a beautifully illustrated and UNIQUE “princess” story that we love. Quick summary for you…the queen has died and the land has become barren and depressing. The king, a pretty depressed man who is starting to become ill, tells his three daughters to do something to “make their […]

Chalk by Bill Thomson

Thursday, March 24th, 2011 in Books/Reading, Tuesday: Weekly Book Review

Chalk by Bill Thomson is an awesome picture book. Three kids are walking in the rain together and come across a toy dinosaur in the park with a bag in its mouth.  The bag contains chalk. The first child draws a sun and all of the sudden it pops out from the ground and goes […]

Bark, George by Jules Feiffer

Tuesday, March 8th, 2011 in Books/Reading, Tuesday: Weekly Book Review

We have checked out Bark, George by Jules Feiffer five times now from the library, so I finally put it in my Amazon cart to buy! The girls find this simple story hilarious and the copy we check out has the story on CD as well. It is about a dog whose mom gets him to […]

Presenting…Tallulah by Tori Spelling

Alright…any celebrity can write a children’s book and they make some nice bucks off of it. But really…lots of them should not be writing children’s books. I mean, have any of you read “The English Roses” by Madonna? It’s one of the WORST children’s books out there. Alex Rodriguez’s and Sarah Furgerson’s newest children’s books […]

Birdie’s Big Girl Shoes by Sujean Rim

Tuesday, September 14th, 2010 in Tuesday: Weekly Book Review

I found this book in a random bookstore at Gardner Village in Utah AND it is a gem! Anyone have a girl that loves to wear your shoes? Then you need this book, Birdie’s Big Girl Shoes by Sujean Rim. If you like the Freckleface Strawberry or Ladybug Girl books I think you would especially […]

The Ugly Pumpkin, by Dave Horowitz

Tuesday, September 7th, 2010 in Tuesday: Weekly Book Review

Yesterday we drove a bit to go to a big bookstore in the area where we usually find new favorite books. We read through a huge stack of Halloween books in hopes of finding *THE* one. You know, we read a lot of lame Halloween books.  Only about three out of fifteen were really good!  When we […]

Seasons by Blexbolex

Tuesday, August 31st, 2010 in Tuesday: Weekly Book Review

Yesterday I went through all the children’s books in the house.  I remembered that, boy, do I have quite the obsession with them.  AND I realized that I really love books about fall and the changing of the seasons. This book is a new favorite.  It is very full, with tons of pages and illustrations. The book feels […]

“Tiny and Hercules” by Amy Schwartz

Friday, October 2nd, 2009 in Tuesday: Weekly Book Review

You need to check this one out from the library this week- Tiny and Hercules by Amy Schwartz. My biggest complaint with kid’s books (and adult books for that matter) is that they tend to tie up every loose end.  They complete the story to such a T that there is no room left to think […]

Carmen Agra Deedy

Tuesday, September 15th, 2009 in Tuesday: Weekly Book Review

(If at all possible, this woman is even more beautiful in person- just stunning!) Carmen Agra Deedy is an author and a story teller.  We are just entranced by her at my house since attending the Timpanogos Story Festival. On the way out from the festival, we picked up her audio of Martina the Beautiful Cockroach […]
