Monday Children’s Book Reviews for October 24, 2011

Did you know that October is National Adopt-a-Shelter-Dog Month? It’s also National Pizza Month, and National Cookie Month! So it looks like a good time to visit the animal shelter, and on the way home pick up some pizza – or pizza makings – then bake some cookies to end your day.
