Monday Children’s Book Reviews for June 7

Can You See What I See? Treasure Ship: Picture Puzzles to Search and Solve by Walter Wick

“A pirate ship and a chest of gold take readers on a journey through time that leads to the location of purloined treasures. Beginning with a zoom of a gold coin, photographs pull back to reveal the story of the coin’s travels from the hull of a pirate ship in the 1700s to the shore of a beach town today. The latest in Wick’s long-running series centers on the story of a wrecked ship, the Bountiful.”             [JPB WICK]

Biscuit Visits the Big City by Alyssa Satin Capucilli

“The city is a big and busy place for a little puppy — there are tall buildings, honking cars, and all kinds of new friends to make!” A MY FIRST I Can Read Book [JE CAPUCILLI]

The Birthday Ball by Lois Lowry

“Princess Patricia Priscilla is bored with her royal life and the excitement surrounding her sixteenth birthday ball. Doomed to endure courtship by three grotesquely unappealing noblemen, she escapes her fate — for a week. Disguised as a peasant, she attends the village school as the smart new girl, “Pat,” and attracts friends and the attention of the handsome school master. Disgusting suitors, loveable peasants, and the clueless King and Queen collide at the ball, where Princess Patricia Pricilla calls the shots. What began as a cure for boredom, becomes a chance for Princess Patricia Priscilla to break the rules and marry the man she loves.” [J LOWRY]

Monarch and Milkweed by Helen Frost and Leonid Gore

“Every spring the monarch butterfly migrates thousands of miles in search of the ideal milkweed plant. When she finds it, she lays her eggs on the plant, so when each egg hatches, the baby caterpillar can feed on the milkweed leaves. The milkweed plant then provides the perfect protection as the caterpillar turns into one of nature’s wonders, a chrysalis, before transforming into an even greater wonder: a monarch butterfly. And once the newborn butterfly soars away, the milkweed seeds fly away on the wind and start this cycle over again.”     [J595.789 FROST]
