Book Post

Because I have so much on my plate at any given time, I have decided to do my book post a bit different than everybody else. I have decided that I will update my Shelfari with our new books and rank them there as we read them. (If you pass your cursor over the book it will give you my personal rankings and you can even read a brief description of each book, you can additionally leave you opinion as well or a comment) I usually will be adding books each Thursday, and will try to review at least one book a week in a separate post.

This week's book review is Little Pea, Gabby loved this book! It's a book about how a little pea loves to do all the regular little pea things; play at the playground, hearing stories, etc. But, like all little peas (people) he didn't like his yucky part of dinner "candy" but he learned how to eat the "candy" in order to have dessert... can you guess what his dessert would be? I won't spoil the end of the book you'll have to read it for yourself to find out.

Gabby really liked the simple uncluttered illustration and the way "Mama" pea, "Daaaadeeee" pea, and "baby" pea were all very distinguishable. She enjoyed pointing out all of the activities that she and baby pea both liked doing. I gave this book 5 stars simply because of Gabby's enjoyment and the simplicity of the story and illustrations. Let me know if any of you have ever read this one or if you check it out, and if anyone has any suggestions of something comparable please let me know, Gabby would love to have more books in this same style.

We read Little Pea too! Soph informed me she didn't like it because "it made no sense, even a pea would want to each candy" figures my child is a spoil sport. As far as simple books go, have you read "this is not a box"? It's a good one, I think we've checked it out from the library at least 3 times.

Little Pea is great! The same author/illustrator team has another book called "Little Hoot" about an owl who wants to have an early bedtime like his friends. We've read that one about 50 times in the last three days.

Daphne, my Gabby liks all food and doesn't distinguish between "candy" and "spinach", she's a bottomless pit... LOL

Daphne & mom and kiddo, thanks for the heads up on those books. I am off to my library's site to put them on order... keep them coming!
