Beverly Billingsly Borrows a Book – Alexander Stadler

So fun and clever, Ayla and I both enjoyed this one.  As a parent, the only thing I didn’t like was that Beverly wasn’t responsible for paying her late fee dues.  But overall Beverly is a fun little friend to have and I hope that one day Ayla can be a part of her very own book club.

Beverly Billingsly Can’t Catch – Alexander Stadler

I saw at the library that Beverly was a reoccurring character in a series so I couldn’t resist grabbing both.  Full of life lessons and the importance of doing research and practicing to achieve your goals, Alexander Stadler is quickly becoming an author I plan to keep around the house for years to come.

Memoirs of a Goldfish – Devin Scillian and Tim Bowers

If Ayla and I were forced to choose a favorite this week, this one would win.  Full of fabulous illustrations, Ayla made me read this over and over.  We actually skipped over other books we had in our library bag this week because we both like this so much.  Fun life lesson and fabulous illustrations!

Can You See A Little Bear? – James Mayhew and Jackie Morris

Ayla liked this one ok, but this was truly more my choice than hers.  The story is sweet and the illustrations are beautifully whimsical.  I highly recommend this book for bed time or nap times.  Its very soothing for both parent and child.

Mice Squeak, We Speak – Tomie dePaola

Tomie dePaola has been hailed as the go to picture book illustrator for years and years.  I remember enjoying her work as a child, but it wasn’t until I read this to my own daughter that I realized how wonderful dePaola truly was.  Ayla squealed and squealed, pointed at all the bright colors and at the end of the book demanded “more.”  We may choose Memoirs of a Goldfish together, but if Ayla’s vote were THE vote, it would be Mice Squeak, We Speak every time this week.
