review 1: Honestly, I can't say why this one charmed me. There are plenty of picture books about following the crowd, and many of them use penguins, of which I am inordinately fond. This uses strangely egg-like beings called Hueys. And where I admire the ability of artists like Mo Willems ...

review 1: As I read The Great Paper Caper I thought it was clever that on almost every page while the other creatures are investigating you see the bear in the background cutting down branches and trees, carrying stacks of paper, and making paper airplanes. Also, in the illustrations all t...

review 1: This was book was regarding conformity. It reminded me of those teenagers who rebel against their parents and try to be their "own person," yet end up looking exactly the same as every other rebellious teenager. Not a bad book, just not one I like enough to add to my picture bo...

review 1: This was a Conor favorite, as are many of Jeffers' titles. It has characters that are fun to voice when reading aloud, a series of pages for counting fun objects up to 10, and of course the deep philosophical question: Is none a number? We had fun discussing what none means. Th...
