Bunster, an Easter Story is a board book targeting pre-k through early elementary children. It’s a cute story that has an Easter theme but could actually fit any time of year. I felt that the Easter concept was pretty light, so I think this could get read a bit more than just in the spring.
In the story, Bunster is getting ready for an Easter Egg Hunt, so he is collecting eggs on the farm to hide. In the end, the eggs hatch, and there are adorable little ducks!
This was an adorable story where we meet Olive, a little boy who is scared of the Valentine’s Day celebrations at school. He’s got it in his head that he’ll have to get married at this party, and he wants NOTHING to do with that! Olive’s mom helps him understand what Valentine’s Day is all about, LOVE, not getting married through a fun story!
I thought this was such an interesting concept for a children’s series! This book in the series follows Chance as he starts up a pool cleaning business. This chapter book for middle-grade kids takes the reader on a journey with Chance as he learns how to get people to work with him, how to figure out what people should pay for his services, and all the other things that happen to a business owner.
I am always on the lookout for ways to help my kiddos handle their anger. It’s hard for them (and for me) to know what to do when anger shows up. Finding books on the emotion is amazing! We have a little stack of books that we use as tools when someone is starting to feel mad or angry, and we can go sit and read them and remember ways to help handle the feeling!
Sometimes When I’m Mad is a great children’s book that helps children manage their feelings of anger. This is definitely a book that will be helpful to any child.
Larry the Lizard lives in Australia, but dreams of a day when it will snow and he can do all the things that critters do in that fluffy stuff! His friends all try to support him, but also know that this dream of his is so unlikely to come true…but then it does! We get to see Larry enjoy the lovely weather and do all the things he’s been dreaming of!
Emotions are hard for adults to handle, and for children, it definitely not any easier. I am always looking for books that can help my kids learn about why they feel the things they feel and how they can handle those emotions.
Sometimes When I’m Sad is a children’s book that focuses on feeling sad. I think that every child can benefit from this book. It helps kids understand that feeling sad is okay, and that it’s okay to talk to others about those feelings.
I love when a Christmas story focuses on the “true meaning” of Christmas. In The Christmas Blanket, we follow a young boy, EJ, as he learns that loving those around you is more important that gifts.
I thought this story was great! My daughter enjoyed it, and it is one that we’ll read again and again each holiday season. The illustrations were beautiful and fun to look at. They are colorful and really quite stunning!
Well this children’s book was absolutely adorable! It’s a great holiday read, but really this one is fun all year round!
When three siblings come home, excited for Abuela’s yummy gingersnap cookies, they find the cookies missing! Following the clues, or crumbs, they work their way through the mystery to find who snatched their gingersnaps!
When we take all of our ornaments out each year, we have lovely memories of them. They are each special and bring something unique to our tree. In The Living Christmas Tree the special ornaments are more than a little special. They come to life at night!
This is a great Christmas story that brings personality and fun to the ornaments on the tree. My daughter enjoyed seeing what kind of trouble the ornaments got into, how they played and spoke to each other, and how they kept their secrets from the family.
This was an interesting story. The characters are excited to travel to America to solve a mystery! They get to meet new friends on their adventure in Washington DC, and they learn some interesting facts!
The story is told through rhyme, which I always enjoy in kid’s books. The plot takes the characters on a mission to solve the case of the mission hot dogs and missing marshmallows, but they also get to learn about healthy food choices as well! Overall, this was a good story with a really fun resolution that my daughter loved!
Slothy Claus has instantly become a family favorite, and a book we will read over and over again! Christmas time has kids and adults alike excited and impatient for the big day to get here. We can FINALLY open our gifts and play! But what happens when Santa is a sloth? The speed and timing of delivering gifts is maybe not so fast. When Slothy Claus doesn’t make it to homes on Christmas Eve, families find the true meaning of Christmas.
