Spend It! (Moneybunny)

My family loved the earlier book in this series, "Earn It," which helped children learn about cause-and-effect in earning and saving money. This delightful book takes that further and looks at prioritizing our resources which, like cause-and-effect can be a little...

Mario and the Aliens

What a charming book this is! I found the story to be truly delightful and well written. It tells a compelling story that will go further convincing your children to play outside more often than endless threats of device-time-outs or stern lectures about how things...

The New Neighbors Review

Years ago, I remember seeing a study which found prejudices increased as the size of a group increased. That is a big part of what this endearing "children's" book is about. It is a fast-paced story of an apartment building filled with different kinds of animal-people...

The Thing About Yetis 

There is so much to love about The Thing About Yetis. The story describes the different sides that people (and yetis) have — loving winter AND summer — and why that’s a good thing. It has some really good messages, like learning to be flexible and the limits of...

Loving Family Books

I hesitate to use the words "Instant Classic" -- but not when a children's book is as wonderful as this! Nowadays, it seems like our children (and grandchildren) are away from us more and more often. The demands of work, and distance we all seem to have to move away...

20 Ways to Draw a Tree has ideas for drawing items from nature, like ferns, acorns, flowers, shells and more and lots of space is given to practice and have fun. Each natural object has twenty variations of different styles and amount of detail. I enjoyed looking at...

The LEGO Neighborhood Book

Our family just loves The Lego Movie, and they are excited about the upcoming sequel starring Lego Batman. We're such fans, that we've have decided to work towards the coveted title of Master Builder and create our own secret Lego worlds in our basement. The LEGO...

Princess Party – A Scratch & Sketch Adventure

My family goes through lots of activity books every year -- all ages coloring, dots, doodling, puzzles, and more. It's something all of us seem to enjoy, and it affords some family togetherness time, as well as nice learning activities, too. I have to say that this...

Tomorrow I’ll Be Brave

Every day is an adventure -- or it should be. The goals we focus on impact our lives, abilities, and character, especially over the long term. Too seldom do we (and our children) hear of our more noble virtues. Only rarely do we hear people speaking openly of their...

How We Got to Now

This is a wonderful revision for young readers of the best-selling non fiction book, How We Got to Now, based upon research gathered during production of the BBC and PBS TV series of the same name. This book is very well designed, bound, and printed, with welcome...

Dr. Seuss’s You Are Kind

Like so many, I learned to read with delight and amazement at Dr. Seuss's books. And it wasn't just the clever and imaginative poetry and artworks -- in many of his books, it was the strong moral backbone the characters often showed in difficult circumstances. It was...

Korean and English Nursery Rhymes

This book offers a way to read and listen (via CD and digital download) to English and Korean versions of selected nursery rhymes in Korean. The text includes English and Korean versions with phonetic versions and in the original script. It's a great way to help...

Corduroy Takes a Bow

My kids and I have been huge fans of Corduroy for many years. We have lots of good memories of reading the books over and over again. We loved seeing Corduroy hiding under the blankets in the bed in the department store and we were so excited when he finally found a...

Baby Code Books

As someone who learned Basic on a computer the size of a desk, I find this book to be really an amazing thing -- and a relief. Yes, it really is a toddler's board book about computer programming. I think everyone behind this series is correct, and it really helps to...

Puppies, Kitties, Cars, And Planes

We recently adopted a new kitten, so my kids and I are really enjoying How to Look After Your Kitten. It has cute illustrations on every page, and it breaks up accurate and reliable information into kid-sized bits that are fun to read, and helpful. We’ve especially...

Favorite Crafts For Kids 

I was so excited to see that Martha Stewart had published a book filled with craft ideas for kids! I had been collecting her magazines that had ideas for children, but I was pretty sure that I had missed some of the issues, so I was thrilled to find Martha Stewart’s...

Robo-Sauce

Today I am sharing with you an amazing new book with a secret hidden in its cover! The illustrations are cute and the book is very well-made; I loved the silver and fluorescent printing, too. I found Robo-Sauce to be a simple, heart-warming story — with a big surprise...
