Thank you to Disney Hyperion for providing a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

Arnold has a plan.

The evil genius Zorgo-disguised as Mr. Zachary-will never stop him. That's because Arnold is . . . SUPER SAURUS! No kindergarten in the universe can hold him.

Or can it?

Perfect for kids who are anxious or unsure about going to kindergarten. Super Saurus Saves Kindergarten will chase their worries away. They'll find Arnold has a lot of the same worries they do, but once he puts on his cape, Arnold can do anything. He soon realizes that Kindergarten is a lot more fun than he thought it would be. Even without his cape,Arnold is still a hero. He proves that heros not only come in all shapes and sizes, they also learn to overcome their fears. 

What a fun read. Underwood's combination of superhero, and dinosaurs theme was a perfect match for this book. Paired with Young's equally fun illustrations, make this book a must read for kindergarteners. This is one book we really enjoyed reading, and look forward to passing on to a kindergarten class to enjoy. I highly recommend picking this one up!

6 has a problem.

Everyone knows that 7 is always after him. Word on the street is that 7 ate 9. If that's true, 6's days are numbered. Lucky for him, Private I is on the case. But the facts just don't add up.

It's odd.

Will Private I put two and two together and solve the problem . . . or is 6 next in line to be subtracted?

A really fun read with a great who-done it mystery for all ages! 

Detective I is on the case of the missing number. Did 7 eat 9? If so, who's next? Could it be 6? 6 is really worried 7 is out to get him next. Or could another number be responsible for 9's sudden and suspicious disappearance. With Detective I hard on the case, readers will enjoy trying to solve the mystery as letters and numbers are question over 9's disappearance. Just be warned, not everything is at it appears... See if you an solve the mystery before Detective I can. 

7 Ate 9 is an engaging story that makes for the perfect read aloud, as it invites readers to join in the mystery. It's fast paced storyline, and fun illustrations make it easy to follow along. This is an entertaining read worth checking out.

FALL IS FOR SCHOOL by Robert Neubecker / Book Review

An unbound book was provided by the publisher in exchange for my honest review

Fall is time for turning leaves,
The weather's growing cool.
Fall is here! Come on with me!
It's time to go to school.

In this exuberant sequel to Winter is for Snow, the two seasonally-opposed siblings face the end of summer with both joy and dread. But as Sister shares her enthusiasm for fall, school, and everything they encompass, Brother's own excitement grows in this celebratory picturebook. Robert Neubecker's expressive illustrations and buoyant rhymes will encourage even the most reluctant school-goers to embrace the start of a new season!

"Fall is time for school! We'll learn, and we'll be cleaver. A great big world will open up and change our lives forever."

Fall Is For School is a fun reminder about the excitement of the beginning of the school year, and all the fun the fall season brings with it. When a young sister's brother isn't as excited about the approaching school year as she is, she tries to ease his reluctance by telling him about all the things she's looking forward to. From colder weather to the the things they learn in school, to playing on the play ground, celebrating Halloween, music, art, sports and so much more. Through her sharing the things she loves about school, her brother's reluctance starts to disappear. 

I liked how the sister went about trying to ease her older brother's fears in going back to school. I get why he was sad about summer vacation ending, and loved the enthusiasm the young girl had with the beginning of the school year, and the excitement of the approaching fall season. As she tries to ease his fears by getting him excited about school and fall, including celebrating Halloween, he slowly starts to realize there are a lot of things to enjoy, and be excited about.  I liked how the author showed the different interests and learning abilities the brother and sister have.

This is a cute story, and perfect for those who are a little reluctant to go back to school. With some rhyming scattered through the book, and diversity illustrated through out the story, a lot of young readers will be able to identify with this book. Definitely worth reading for those with back to school jitters.

THE TEACHER'S PET by Anica Mrose Rissi / Book Review

An unbound book was provided by the publisher in exchange for my honest review

When a class pet proves to be more than a handful, the students agree they cannot keep him, but how will they convince their teacher, Mr. Stricter, who loves the strange creature?

On the day the tadpoles hatch, the whole class is amazed—they've never seen their teacher so excited. Mr. Stricter has always wanted a pet, so he tells the students they can keep just one. The class chooses Bruno, the smallest of the bunch. But Bruno doesn't stay small for long. Soon he's grown into a giant, classroom-wrecking creature: He eats desks, farts for show-and-tell, and sneezes slime all over everything! Everyone can see that Bruno is trouble. Everyone except Mr. Stricter.

With their teacher blinded by love for the pet, the students must step up and take matters into their own heroic hands.

A fun story, matched with great illustrations makes for a great laugh out picture book. What starts off as a fun science project with tadpoles, quickly goes hilariously wrong, when Mr. Stricter's new class pet isn't what he thought it was. The trouble all starts when Mr. Stricter decides to keep one of the tadpoles as a class pet. That would have been fine, but their pet, Bruno, doesn't stop growing. Only Mr. Stricter has failed to acknowledge that Bruno is definitely not a frog. In fact, Bruno gets so big he starts to outgrow the classroom. 

Things only get worse when Mr. Stricter fails to acknowledge his beloved class pet is better suited outside the classroom. There's more than Bruno's size that causes problems. There's a few hilarious mishaps that happen as well. It's a good thing Mr. Stricter's class is full of smart kids, or else Mr. Stricter wouldn't have been able to get himself out of the sticky situation he finds himself in, literally. Thankfully the class all works together to solve the problem, and find a solution for Bruno.

The Teacher's Pet is such a fun read out aloud. With hilarious, well paced storytelling, and Ohoa's illustrations, and color scheme that are reminiscent of classic easy readers from back in the day, make for a great read. We enjoyed this picture book, and all the laughter that ensued from it. The Teacher's Pet definitely makes for a fun story time read both at home and in the classroom, and invites young readers to predict what's going to happen next.

Thank you Chronicle Books for sending a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review

Mr. Crocodile loves his job. Every morning he gets up with an alarm. He brushes his teeth. He chooses the right tie to match his outfit, eats a quick slice of toast, and heads off to work on a crowded train. But what exactly is his job? The answer may surprise you! Readers will want to pore over this witty, wordless book again and again, finding new details and fresh stories with every reading.

Professional Crocodile is a brilliant book! It is witty and fun while being beautifully entertaining. Mr. Crocodile has a morning routine similar to anyone. He has to get dress, catch the subway, and get to work on time. Of course, it is more amusing to watch a Crocodile fit in with the human world, but his demeanor and attitude are similar to anyone headed to work. The climax of this book is figuring out what he does for a living and in that, lies the humor of this well-thought out book.

This wordless book contains wonderful illustrations that are just colorful and full of life. Some of pages are in a comic-style, with multiple picture sequences on one page. With so many things to look at, this book is entertaining for all ages. You definitely don't want to miss out on this great book!

What’s a town to do when not one, not two, but hundreds of adorable, wriggling puppies invade? 

This is especially a problem in Strictville, where no one has ever seen puppies before. And where there are rules against such things. In fact, cuteness of any kind is considered downright criminal. 

But one boy is brave enough to face the adorable doggies, and he just may turn things around for this narrow-minded town. A true treat for the funny bone! 

Strictville is strict about everything (fun is forbidden) and there is absolutely no cuteness allowed. One day a puppy shows up and no one knows what to do. It soon turns into a town emergency when hundreds of adorable puppies flood the town. The townspeople try everything to get rid of the puppies (throwing sticks, chasing them, and even feeding them) but everything they do only encourages the cuteness and increases the happiness of the puppies. Little Teddy is brave and approaches a cute puppy and the town quickly realizes how fun having a pet puppy can be. Strictville soon learns they don't need to be afraid of cuteness ever again.

We loved the originality of this story! This book is humorous and absurd and really cute. The illustrations are great and entertaining. Even the puppies look so cute and cuddly. The townspeople are equally fun to see in their reactions throughout out the book. It was a fun read!

Pet lovers and dog fans will love having this book in their library. Any young reader will enjoy this story because it is silly and full of bright-bold illustrations. Strictville is somewhere children will want to visit again and again to hear about the Great Puppy Invasion.

Tie your laces. Zip your zippers. And tap your toes. It’s…SHOE TIME!
This lyrical beginning-reader by multi award-winning artist Bryan Collier turns the closet on its heel and redefines what it means to be a pair. Beautifully rendered art paired with rich, rhyming dialog creates a powerful reading experience.
We're getting ready for back to school! What better way to kick off the beginning of the school year, than by spotlighting a few books that will be out later this fall. First up, It's Shoe Time by Bryan Collier!

A fun, inter-active easy reader told from the shoes point of view. It's Shoe Time! will not only make learning to read enjoyable, kids will learn matching when it comes to the variety of shoes in the little girls closet. Which shoe goes on which foot, and which shoes will the young girl choose? There are so many choices. Be prepared for a few laughs as well. 

Great for early readers, this book also makes a great read aloud. Kids can make the noises the different shoes make when they walk, as well as match up shoe pairs from the story. This would also be perfect for a "wacky Wednesday" kind of theme at school, because of the mismatching pair of shoes the girl picks. We loved that this is an easy reader with diversity. 

It's Shoe Time! is another great addition to the Elephant and Piggie Like Reading series. It not only teaches kids to read, and makes it fun, readers will also learn what it means to be pair vs what a matching pair is. 

About the Elephant and Piggie Like Reading Series

Elephant & Piggie Like Reading is a great early reader series, which was created and co-edited by Mo Willems. Each title in the series features an exciting new story from renowned, award-winning children's book authors and illustrators.

When a lonely fisherman finds an injured bird on his boat, he nurtures it back to health and—since the bird can no longer migrate with its family—charts a course to head south for the winter. Together, the two form a special friendship and enjoy life at sea until both the healing process and the journey must come to an end. In the tradition of the classic Amos & BorisSouthis a story about making new friends and the bittersweet process of saying good-bye to the ones we love. It beautifully depicts the power of new beginnings and the freedom in coming home.

A touching story about friendship, and home. Duncan's picture book debut has definitely made our favorite picture book list this year. We loved this book, and it's beautiful illustrations. Not to mention the simplicity beauty of both the story telling, and the message, that even young children will be able to comprehend/understand. 

The friendship that forged between a lonely fisherman, and a lost & injured seagull, really pulled at our heartstrings. We loved the emotion that was felt through both the story, and the imagery. The journey at sea about finding home, and never forgetting those you met along the way, is priceless. This is one picture book that is definitely worth picking up.

Thank you Penguin Random House for sending a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review

Exploring outer space and the ocean is exciting, but what if you left something very important at home?

Best friends Garcia and Colette are eager to go exploring, only they can’t agree on where to go. Garcia loves everything about space (Stars! Planets!)­ and Colette is obsessed with the sea (Waves! Fish!).

Staying home is not an option, so they each get busy. Garcia builds a rocket ship that’s snazzy and silver. Colette’s shiny submarine is perfect for deep-sea dives. And they wish each other well on their travels.

It turns out the Milky Way really is amazing and the ocean floor is truly spectacular, but Garcia and Colette both realize they left something very important back home.

Exploring your favorite place can be terrific, but maybe the company is more important than the destination.

This book is as cute as it looks! From the cover, we were in love with the illustrations and the adventure of Garcia and Colette. This is a wonderful book about friendship and adventure. 

As can happen in friendships, Garcia and Colette could not agree on their next adventure together. Instead of a compromise, they decide to separate and go their own ways. Garcia builds a spaceship (out of everyday objects like a yo-yo) and Colette builds an amazing submarine. While one explores space, the other explores the Ocean. They both discover very similar things but most importantly, they discover how lonely it is to take adventures alone. The shared experience was more important than reaching the stars or seeing the Ocean floor. Once they are reunited, they decide on a desert adventure. Colette can sit in the sand and Garcia can perfectly see the stars.

Kids will love the story and illustrations and parents will love the focus on friends, adventure and imagination. It is a playful book that will quickly become a family favorite!

A great introduction to opposites, and comparing. With repetitive words, rhyming, and adorable woodland animal illustrations, young readers will enjoy learning about opposites from Bear, Mouse, and a few of their friends. What a fun read out loud picture book!

We really enjoyed this book. The illustrations, and color scheme are perfect for capturing young readers attentions, as they learn opposites like; big to small, fast to slow, loud and quiet, and more. I liked how the author and illustrator making learning fun, in the form of a picture book we'd definitely recommend picking up. It's the perfect length book for short attention spans.

The Princess and the Pea gets a fresh twist in this charming bilingual retelling.
El príncipe knows this girl is the one for him, but, as usual, his mother doesn’t agree.

The queen has a secret test in mind to see if this girl is really a princesa.

But the prince might just have a sneaky plan, too . . .

Readers will be enchanted by this Latino twist on the classic story, and captivated by the vibrant art inspired by the culture of Peru.

A classic fairytale with a delightful twist. We absolutely loved this charming book. Elya's bilingual verse, and Martinez-Neal's vibrant Peruvian inspired illustrations, make for, what's sure to be, a new favorite children's picture book. 

I'm not sure what we loved more, the illustrations or the verse story telling. Elya's creative story telling effortless capture her readers attention. While Martinez-Neal's illustrations mixed with her rich color scheme, make you enjoy every little detail she adds on each page. The illustration match the story perfectly. I love it when illustrations can tell the story all on their own.

La Princesa and the Pea just may be our favorite telling of this classic children's story. We loved finding out just how the Prince's picky madre would trick the Maiden. To match her mood and feeling, was her cat, which made for a few laughs. Not to be out down, the Prince definitely knows how to out smart his mom. 

This book is definitely a must have! I loved the diverse setting, and the notes the illustrator included in the back of the book about Peru and it's beautiful cultural. Also included in the book is a glossary of bilingual words, however with the rhyming and illustrations, it is extremely easy to understand what is being told in the story. I highly recommend picking up this book.
