Who is Crankenstein?
HE IS A MONSTER OF GRUMPINESS THAT NO ONE CAN DESTROY! MEHHRRRR!!! HE’S ALIVE!
Dylan is a playful and curious dog who has many things to do with his time, including the most important thing of all: finding the big fat cat that lives next door. This beautifully illustrated book follows Dylan as he chases, sniffs, catches and follows birds, flowers, pots, neighbors and more, all the while frantically looking for the big fat catuntil he finds it, that is. Dylans Day is a funny and endearing story that teaches kids its OK to sometimes be a little scared.
My Comments: What is cuter than a dog in pursuit of a cat – especially a big fat one? This is a great children’s book. The illustrations are outstanding! Anyone with a pet an relate to Dylan and his pursuit of the big fat cat. I reviewed this book because we just got a brand new puppy, so I had a special interest in this. After teaching for 22 years, I know that children are VERY interested in pets and especially dogs. Dylan is a sweetie! I can’t wait to read this book to my new class this fall! Thank you NetGalley!

Bob goes about his day with a booger in his nose. Bus riders, classmates and teachers see this booger, but neglect to tell him of his predicament. At the end of the day, Bob takes homework to his friend, Joe, who is also sick, but stayed home. When Joe sees Bob’s booger, he is quick to inform his friend. Ultimately, Bob learns a lesson about friendship. He learns that a true friend will always be honest, even if the truth is green and crusty…
My Comments: This is a great children’s book and very timely for April with allergies rampant! I believe most kids could relate to this book. They will see the humor, but also relate to the predicament. The illustrations are simple, but very cute. A great addition to your child’s library.
Thank you NetGalley for my review copy!
From the back cover: ” A for Amazing,
B for Buoyant, C for Charming,
Bad Kitty takes us on a mad and manic joyride through the alphabet. And if once is not enough, just watch out…
D for delightful.”
My Review: This is a very cute book. I like the way the author goes through the whole alphabet FOUR times telling the story of a kitty who turns from bad to good and it’s all wrapped around FOOD! The illustrations are great and children will relate to it – especially the food they would probably agree with kitty is yucky! I can’t wait to add this book to my second grade library. I know the children will love it! This book is leveled at 2.2 Accelerated Reader
