How do Dinosaurs Clean Their Rooms – Yolen

This is Ayla’s first dinosaur book and the first thing we’ve read by Jane Yolen. Cute, clever, and rhyming this is great board book for a 14 month old learning to put her toys away before she leaves a room and goes to another. Its quickly becoming an afternoon favorite.

Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs – Barrett

Ayla and I read this recently for the first time. She seemed to enjoy it when I made the action loud enough, but its definitely going to be more exciting when she’s a little older. All in all, though, it does not live up to its hype.

Punctuation Station – Bryan P. Cleary

Ayla and I love Bryan P. Cleary books and are trying to collect them all. We checked this one out of the library this week, and as usual she found the rhymes exciting, even if she doesn’t quite know what they mean yet!

The Sea of Bath – Bob Logan

Ayla loves this one. She’s really into the illustrations and there’s the perfect amount of story per page, so she is able to sit still for just the right amount of time before she turns the page for you. We checked this copy out of the library, but I think I’ll have to go buy a copy soon.

Where to, Little Wombat – Charles Fuge

Ayla wasn’t sure about sitting through the first page, but by the second she was hooked.  The first time we read this she made me read it three times in a row and carried it around the house for an hour after that.  The illustrations are fun and she loved being introduced to new animals she hadn’t seen before: wombat, emu, and koala. Plus, the story is super cute too.

    Ouuu punctuation station sounds really wonderful for my nephew. I’ll have to look into that.

    Fun post! I wanted to go check out a few of them right now. So…a thought, since you mentioned wanting people to click from your site to Amazon, you could make each title a link strait to that book on Amazon, for interested readers or potential buyers alike! Though, it would be a little more time & work for every title reviewed in posts.

      On most posts they are, as they are adult titles that have full reviews dedicated to just one piece. We read kid’s books so quickly that if I only have a blurb, I try to combine so as to not tease my followers into reading a “new post” that is really only two sentences long. I hadn’t even thought to make the title themselves a link though. It usually just says “Buy Here” or something of that nature.
