And Some More New Picture Books!

I promise I will get back to regular reviews soon, there are just so many great books coming across my desk, and I don't want to 'hold up the line', so to speak!


Two familiar names in funny children's books (Dragons Love Tacos!) This is the first in a set of three, so far, including the rascally squirrels and poor Old Man Fookwire. A semi-traditional tale of a grumpy old man trying to get the best of some pesky varmints, but with plenty of twists and giggles along the way. (I knew squirrels were smart, but I had no idea they were such accomplished engineers!)


It was the perfect summer. That is, until Jeremy Ross moved into the house down the street and became neighborhood enemy number one. Luckily Dad had a surefire way to get rid of enemies: Enemy Pie. But part of the secret recipe is spending an entire day playing with the enemy!

The astute reader will quickly figure out the secret to enemy pie, which the narrator never quite does. A wonderful lesson in friendships and first impressions, without a second of heavy-handedness.


Bear is hungry. Gertie wants to help. But finding the perfect snack is harder than it looks. Will Gertie and Bear silence Bear's tummy grumbles before hunger gets the best of them?

Poor bear! Just look at that face! Kind of like mine when the kids walk in and catch me scarfing the last piece of cake. Make sure your young reader checks out every single page, beginning with the inside front cover, and don't miss the dedication at the end! This one has already been inked into my mammals story time this fall - it's one of those read-alouds that adults will get some chuckles out of as well! (And his earlier title, Nope!, will be appearing when we read about birds!)
