A few weeks ago, I was browsing through the clearance children’s section at Half Price Books (our Barnes and Noble and Borders have both closed down a year ago) and was delighted to find, “Make Way for Ducklings.” I first heard of the book through Amelie’s Bookshelf where I find a lot of great book recommendations for children. My pocket was equally delighted when I saw this lightly used book was only $1.00. Lil and Emmy loved the endearing story of a mallard duck family starting a new life in a Boston riverbank. They also loved the illustrations.
Also for $1 was this wonderfully illustrated, The Pout-Pout Fish. Cute story of a sad fish in search of his purpose.
Emmy has been obsessed with tooth fairy books ever since she read “Franklin and the Tooth Fairy”. I found this humorous book, “The Tooth Fairy Tell All”. The book walks the reader through what baby teeth are, to maintenance, what every tooth’s job is and what types of food are good for your teeth.
Finally, I found this heartwarming story of a sheep named, Russell who finds a lost treasure and discovers a greater treasure in the end. The girls loved the story and illustrations.
Quick book reading update, I finally finished reading novel, Moloka’i by Alan Brennert which was a compelling, highly imaginative and moving story. Definitely a must read for historical novel readers.
Right now, I’m in the mood to read some Tolstoy, Bradbury and Bronte. Well as soon as this guy’s makes them available to me. 🙂
