Thoughts on the library books I’ve been reading to my kids this month:
Over in the Meadow
This one is a solid middle-of-the-road book for us. The kids don’t mind it, but they’re not crazy about it, and I feel pretty much the same. It’ll go back at our next visit and I doubt we’ll ever get it out again. I do like the illustrations though.
Roar!: A Noisy Counting Book
I thought they would love this one – there’s a lion! And lots of different noises! They like it, but they aren’t obsessed with it like I thought they might be. It’s fun though, and the illustrations are nice.
Olivia . . . and the Missing Toy
The favorite of the batch. Olivia is fun, even if this is one of my least favorites of her stories.
Gotta admit that I never even read this one to my kids – it went straight back into the library bag after I read it. The illustrations are great, but I had a clear vision of my son repeating all of the euphemisms in the book and I decided to pass.
Wee Rhymes: Baby’s First Poetry Book
My expectations were probably unrealistically high with this one because it’s by Jane Yolen. It seemed fairly blah, and I doubt I’ll ever check it out again.
