Check out a few of my favorites from this week's picture book binge!
It's Monday, Mrs. Jolly Bones! by Warren Hanson and Illustrated by Tricia Tusa
"It’s Monday, Mrs. Jolly Bones, there’s laundry to be done.
So gather up the dirty clothes and sort them one by one.
Wash them, dry them, iron them, and fold them nice and neat—
Then fling them out the window so they brighten up the street!"
A silly romp through the weekly chore list is sure to inspire some smiles. I especially loved the charming watercolor and pen illustrations. Suggest this to fans of the Amelia Bedelia series.
See Me Dig by Paul Meisel
A super-fun, high quality early reader. Large easy-to-read text with lots of repitition make this a fabulous choice for those just beginning to read.
A rowdy bunch of digging dogs encounter a scary bear, buried treasure, pirate ghosts and find a kindred spirit in a back hoe.
This title is head & shoulders above other early readers in its ability to tell a bigger story with its amazing illustrations. Engaging and fun!
