Forever (2013)
language
English
4.05 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: This is a sweet story about the love that a mama polar bear has for her cub. Each page has a little bit of text that rhymes with the page after (or before) about how this mama bear loves her cub…forever. The illustrations are cute with the little one looking like a sweet cub read...
I Don't Want a Cool Cat! (2010)

review 1: On one hand, this book can be seen as a celebration of mixed-breed kittens over purchased purebreds: Most of the cats the girl brushes off as “not her type” are recognizable breeds: Siamese, Persian, Sphinx. At one point, the little girl also turns up her nose at a cat who’s bede...

review 1: I like the repetition of the text; the illustrations are clean and simple and convey the different meanings without cluttery detail. Points off though for the sappy ending. I would have loved it to end on the second-to-last line: "These things are big and long and deep, and stron...

review 1: This book will have your little one running out the door and wanting to become an outdoor detective just like the narrator of the story. The narrator, a little boy, is simply enthralled with the bug world and through large, vibrant, colourful illustrations his passion is passed ...

review 1: Jack's mother said he could get a pet... but what pet should he get? An elephant would be too hard to take on vacation. A polar bear won't like central heat, T-Rex - well they are extinct and the last page shows the pet Jack decides to get. Kindergartners and first grade could...

review 1: My sister lives at my house now and has a cat Dexter, and Dexter is obnoxious, and fits all of the 'don't want cat" Categories. I would like to say he is a "purry cat, a small and furry cat" Dexter is not it. Oh well, Of you likes kids this is a quick book. Nothing really specta...

review 1: The world around baby penguin is big and fast and steep, but the little penguin is small.Excellent book to share with a repetitive phrase everyone can join in and say together, "and I am small." I added the phrase, "Little Penguins says.." to give it a smoother transition for the...

review 1: I think parents and caregivers who come to our book babies and infant lapsit programs will really like this one. I don't know if I would bring it to our toddler group or preschool storytime, since it is on the small side, and our groups can get rather large.The illustrations are...

review 1: The rhyme and rhythm in this book is perfect for small children and toddlers. You can feel the movement of the insects in the words, "I love springy jumpy leapy hugs and slimy crawly creepy bugs." You can hear their sounds, "I love fuzzy sunny honey bugs and furry worry funny bug...

review 1: Meh.Surprisingly I do not love all the picture books, although I don't bother to read or review many that don't delight me. Despite the cat, the book didn't work for me. Perhaps it was just too rushed, but the premise has no internal logic to support it, and if your premise is fa...

review 1: You know you're reading a bad picture book when you can't even finish it. They're what, a dozen or so pages in length? If you have to stop, that's a sign. In this case, it's a sign that Dodd's writing is clunky, awkward, and embarrassing. Dodd attemped to write a rhyming stor...

review 1: The illustrations in this book are loads of fun! As are the rhymes which - aside from the last few pages - flowed incredibly well and would probably be super fun to read aloud!I liked the intent of the ending, and the sweetness that came along with it. But, I couldn't help but ...

review 1: I enjoyed the fact that it is something a little different than your normal princess story and the fact that it uses animals rather than people. I think this would help the little girls obsessed with only princess books to find something different that could also interest them an...
