This is a fantastic introduction to how basic coding works. It's a simple story of a little girl, Pe(a)rl, and her robot friend Pascal, going to the beach to make a sand castle. . The book is made very well, with high quality printing and binding. And I have to say...

Treasure Island And Emma For Babies

We love the BabyLit book series, which are aimed at babies, toddlers, and young children but instead of focusing merely on the basic concepts they teach, alone, they are based on literary classics, which makes them enjoyable (and illuminating) for children and adults...

In Over And On The Farm

I really like the cute and simple artwork in In, Over and On the Farm, which explains the concepts of in-versus-out, on-versus-off, etc. It’s a charming book and would work well for the very young, especially toddlers, and even last up through the joke-loving,...

Dark, Dark Cave

There's a lot of fun shining out from the Dark, Dark Cave. It shows how all you need is an imagination and a blanket tent in order to have a wonderful time. I've read it to my children, again and again. I also found the watercolor illustrations to be...

The Paper Playhouse

I was excited to see The Paper Playhouse, as it reminded me of my favorite book as a child, Childcraft’s Things To Make and Do. Like that book, this one is filled with fun ideas that use items around the house that we would have either thrown away or recycled. I...

The LEGO Adventure Book 2 

The LEGO Adventure Book is such a clever and creative book! Instead of just text-based instructions on how to build with Lego blocks, the many projects within — from the delightfully ordinary (the retro kitchen is adorable!) to the fantastic (dragon trains, anyone?) —...

Lauren Ipsum: A Story About Computer Science 

When I was a child, I remember reading — and loving — “The Phantom Tollbooth.” I realized that it was trying to teach me something, but the story and characters were so imaginative and delightful that I kept reading (and learning) regardless. I believe that Lauren...

Shh! Bears Sleeping 

My youngest and I are enjoying reading Shh! Bears Sleeping together as a favorite bedtime story. The simple, sing-song rhymes are easy and fun to read, and help my little one get ready to rest at night. The story is educational, too, explaining how a mama bear and her...

Asian Learning Books for Kids!

When I was a child, I was taught that those brief poems, haiku, were a certain number of syllables. Today, I learned that the syllable count applies only to the Japanese versions of the poems, and in English, it's more appropriate to simply keep them to three short...

We have kids who love all stories, the more fanciful, the better. But the rest will only read non-fiction. So I was delighted to get this book for them. It's written at a young-adult level, which is to say, it really is a book for all ages. The phrasing is direct and...

Islandborn

When I was a child, I had to move, in an untimely and difficult way. It was followed up by other moves and, all in all, it took a harsh toll on my perspective on life, which followed me well into adulthood. It was many years before I could fully set that upending of...

Survive! Inside The Human Body
