Picture Book Reviews...

I have been reading some picture books to the littles lately so they can earn tokens for the library program. I have found some books I have really enjoyed and wanted to share them with you.
These 3 are excellent books with fantastic illustrations! Check out if your local library may have them to read to your littles, or even to your bigs :)

Adorable book about little Dinny Brown who is eager to get to the county fair. Mama is busy making pies for fair, Dad is chopping wood to sell at fair, Sis is getting her animals ready for showing. Grandma Patty sees Dinny's eagerness and off they go to the fair.
Gorgeous illustrations, full open out page of the whole fair. Maybe I am partial as we show at county fair, but this was a fantastic book about a good ole fashioned fair!

Miss Smith reminds me of Ms Frizzle on the Magic School Bus series. Instead of a school bus taking them places, she reads from her Incredible Storybook, and the stories come alive. They go on adventures of the sea with classics such as The Owl and the Pussycat, Moby Dick, Gulliver Travels and more. Introduces kids to classic sea novels in a fun way. Bright and captivating illustrations!

Simple words, conveying a big message.. All the World is All of us.
Cute rhymes, beautiful illustrations. Fast pasted and holds a childs interest.
Deeper than some kids may get, but meaningful for the parents to read as well.
Very nicely done picture book.

More to come in our quest for the great picture books of the summer!!
