Monday Children’s Book Reviews for September 13

Sleepy Oh So Sleepy by Denise Fleming

“The illustrator of the Caldecott Honor Book, In the Small, Small Pond , depicts a number of sweet animal babies sleeping as a human mother puts her own tired baby to bed.

“Take a colorful look at all the tired babies who are closing their eyes, and start a new bedtime ritual with your own sleepy little one.”                 [JPB FLEMING]

Marley and the Runaway Pumpkin by Susan Hill and John Grogan

“Marley’s family has spent months growing a giant pumpkin to take to the fair and when the big day finally arrives, Mommy, Daddy, Cassie and Baby Louie try to be extra careful with their blue-ribbon pumpkin, but with a dog like Marley around, being careful isn’t always enough!”

I Can Read Level 2                                                           [JE HILL]

Gruffen by Chris d’Lacey

“When Lucy Pennykettle suspects there’s a monster in her bedroom, her mom knows exactly what to do. She creates a new dragon – Gruffen the guard dragon. But can Gruffen discover the mystery behind the monster?”

From the series The Dragons of Wayward Crescent                 [J Moving Up D ‘LACEY]

Peterson Field Guide to Birds of Western North America by Roger Tory Peterson

“With all-new range maps, updated text, and 40 new paintings, the completely revised editions of two classic Peterson Field Guides are sure to be valuable additions to any birder’s pocket or daypack. At a trim size of 5 x 8, they are portable but also beautifully illustrated. Photographs, while modern looking and colorful, capture just one moment in time. The paintings in these guides, however, show all of a bird’s key field marks and use the Peterson Identification System to make bird identification easier for beginning and intermediate bird watchers.”         [J598.0978 PETERSON]
