Bluebird's Nest

Written by Dorothea DePrisco, Illustrations by Jo Parry

A nice little story where we see an adorable bluebird that builds it's nest. As the nest is being built, we see the collection of "twigs" that help make the nest. Check out the book for yourself to see what the "twigs" look'll like it! =)

What Makes a Rainbow

By Betty Ann Schwartz, Illustrated by Dona Turner

I love this story! It is a very fun read where a ribbon of rainbow colors continues to build as you turn the pages so that at the end of the story you are left with a nice little ribbon rainbow. And, at the very end of the story, on the last page you are left with a pop up rainbow. Very cute!

Great Day for Up

Great Day for Up: By Dr. Seuss, Pictures by Quentin Blake I think this is my signature book! Read this story to find that it's a great day for up, being up, and getting up, however not necessarily a great day for the character at the end of the story to be getting up and out of bed! LOL!! I love it. You probably will too. This is a very cute, energetic story.
Happy reading.....

As promised....

Some book reviews.....


I'm headed out for a walk with Jenna and my doggies. When I return, I shall post a few book reviews. I'm looking forward to it....hope you are too!!
P.S. Feel free to share any comments regarding books you have recently read or any trips to the bookstore or library. I love reading and I love hearing about others and the books they read or the stores and libraries they like to visit. (Holy run-on sentence!!)
Oh, side note....who's looking forward to the Academy Awards Show, aka the Oscars tonight????

Bad Kitty by Nick Bruel

I came across this book while browsing through the children's section at a local bookstore the other night. The story is hilarious and is a great way to reinforce teaching your children the alphabet. I suggest this book to teachers, parents looking for a book to help supplement alphabet learning at home, and all kids, especially Pre-K and Kindergartners.
* Another tidbit: If you like this book, check out the author's website for more books including Bad Kitty in other adventures! Website:

The Napping House by Audrey Wood...

Illustrated by Don Wood. This is a very cute book. The illustrations are nicely done as well. The story is similar to "The House That Jack Built", in which each part of the story builds from the last thing that happened. And in the end, it all comes tumbling down. Check it out for your kiddos. They'll love the flea and how it all goes down in the end!
Happy reading....
