Monday Children’s Book Reviews for July 12

What’s Your Sound Hound the Hound? by Mo Willems

“Cat the Cat asks her friends what sounds they make. It’s an easy question for Hound, Chick, and Cow to answer, but what about Bunny? Thinking fast, Cat decides Bunny sounds like he needs a hug.” [JPB WILLEMS]

Annie and Snowball and the Magical House by Cynthia Rylant

“Annie takes her rabbit to the home of her new friend, Sarah, to play and enjoys seeing the pretty house full of frilly things, walking in the beautiful garden, and making a tiny garden house for a fairy tea party.”         [JE RYLANT]

We the Children by Andrew Clements [Benjamin Pratt and the Keepers of the School, Book 1]

“Sixth-grader Ben Pratt’s life is full of changes that he does not like–his parents’ separation and the plan to demolish his seaside school to build an amusement park–but when the school janitor gives him a tarnished coin with some old engravings and then dies, Ben is drawn into an effort to keep the school from being destroyed.”           [J CLEMENTS]

The Japanese Samurai by Louise Park [Ancient and Medieval People]

“Ever wonder what life was like for a Japanese samurai in feudal Japan?  Ancient and Medieval People explores the daily life of history’s most fascinating early warriors. Each book discusses the social, political, and economic climate that gave rise to a particular group of people – and why they fell from power. The books also feature profiles of famous leaders and warriors of the topic time period. Full-color photographs, timelines, and illustrations with informative captions enhance the text, which is presented in easy-to-read spreads. The series also features a glossary and index.”         [J355.00952 PARK]
