Exclamation Mark (2013)
language
English
4.23 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: A random library find. I am a language nerd, and this is the first picture book on punctuation for children that I would actually read to children. So many of them are boring or pedantic, but this one sorts out what different punctuation does without being preachy. It's very clev...
I Scream! Ice Cream!: A Book of Wordles (2013)
language
English
3.52 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: This is a great book for Phonemic awareness—it is a book of Wordles, or words that are spelled differently, mean different things, but sound the same. It is written so that one "wordle" is written on one page, and on the following page is an alternative, which gives you a chance...
This Plus That: Life's Little Equations (2011)
language
English
4.06 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: A few pages into the book I started thinking some of those equations were a little uninspired, even lame. However I really, really like the concept, and the colorful pictures are fun, so much that I'm going to rate it four stars even if the book could have been executed considera...
Plant a Kiss (2011)
language
English
4.1 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: The author was very creative on how she used just one or two words each page to tell the story. The words rhymed with each other, making the story cute and simple. I enjoyed how some of the text were written in different styles and the author made words bigger or smaller dependin...
Wumbers (2012)
language
English
3.7 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: Two favorites Rosenthal and Lichtenheld team up again this time with a clever word play book called Wumbers (words created with numbers). As an homage to William Steig's CDB, Rosenthal has written captions for Tom Lichtenheld's great illustrations with numbers embedded in words r...
Uni the Unicorn (2014)
language
English
3.79 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: I guess it would have helped reading the subtitle of this book, so that I wasn't as disappointed in the ending. Now I'm only slightly less so. It's great to believe, but there's not much resolution here. Not for me. I know that seeing isn't believing, but belief usually brings so...
Duck! Rabbit! (2009)
language
English
4.13 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: I read this book in one of my classes for a project and I just thought it was the cutest book ever. I think its great for children to explore their imagination and see what they think the image really is throughout the book. I enjoyed it so much I had to buy it and add it to my c...
Little Oink (2009)
language
English
3.94 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: Little Oink loves to be clean and tidy, but his parents say he must grow into a respectable, messy grown-pig. Gives fantastic vocabulary in the beginning (relish, dug, savor- for like!), but the end, to me, left something to be desired.However, I would definitely read this in a s...
Spoon (2009)

English

review 1: Originally posted on Sarahsbookshelf.com:I’m always on the lookout for new and funny children’s books. I came across two Amy Krouse Rosenthal books recently, this being the first. I really enjoyed this story. It’s a good introduction for kids about why being different isn’t a bad...
Siembra un beso (2014)
language
English
4.09 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: This manuscript must have made the editors weep. At all the SCBWI writing conferences and retreats I've attended, the agents and editors all plead for short, short, 500 words or less manuscripts for picture books...to the extent that many won't look at anything longer.I'm not sur...
Yes Day! (2009)
language
English
3.83 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: Aurora loves this book. We actually had instituted a "yes day" in our family before we read this book. Aurora was in a stage where she said "no" to everything and was pretty resistant. Yes day change that for us. We took turns to request something from the others and the other ha...

review 1: Duck RabbitRosenthal, A. K., & Lichtenheld, T. (2009). Duck! Rabbit!. San Francisco, CA: Chronicle Books.Tumble Book Duck! Rabbit! Is a wonderful book about perception, where a shape can look like a duck or a rabbit. This book is a great book to watch on Tumble. It shows how one ...
Ente! Hase! (2010)
language
English
4.13 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: This is a very neat book for young children because it is showing different ways that objects can be looked at. Basically one image can be looked at in multiple ways or viewpoints. This particular book focuses on figuring out the image of a duck or a rabbit. All throughout the bo...
Aujourd'hui, c'est oui! (2011)
language
English
3.83 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: My kids loved this book - even once they were conventionally too old for it. They are enamored with the idea of a Yes Day and beg us to grant them their own Yes Days. I have to say that I'm intrigued by but also a little scared of what they might come up with if I allow this to...
Allez, Au Lit Maman ! (2010)
language
English

review 1: PB 21: This book was really interesting because it's not the parents putting their child to bed its the child putting the parents to bed. I remember that stage in my life that I wanted to do everything on my own. Also when I wanted to be the boss and tried telling my mom when she...

review 1: Al Pha looks at the world around him and all sorts of things are being discovered and invented. Al wants to invent something too. The king announces that whoever can arrange the letters into what he believes is the best order, they are promised to be remembered forever. Al get...
The Wonder Book (2010)
language
English
3.81 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: So I'm going to call this poetry although it's not all, exactly. "Typical Day" asks some of the funny and unrealistic (or, realistic, depending on which meaning you are talking about) a kiddo might ask during the day and the "yes" and "no" answers they usually get.My favorite pic...
