Monday Children’s Book Reviews for November 7, 2011

James Mayhew Presents Ella Bella Ballerina and Swan Lake by James Mayhew

“When Ella Bella stays after her ballet class to listen to music from Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake, she is magically transported into the story where she meets the characters and watches as the tale unfolds.”                             [JPB MAYHEW]

The Sniffles for Bear by Bonny Becker

“Bear has a terrible cold. In fact, Bear is quite sure that no one has ever been as sick as he is. So when Mouse comes tap, tap, tapping on his front door eager to make Bear “as good as new” by reading a sunny story, singing a rousing chorus, and plinking a twangy tune on his banjo, the pitifully coughing Bear—growing weaker by the minute—is convinced that his tiny friend does not appreciate the gravity of the situation. Can there be any saving Bear from his certain demise?”                       [JPB BECKER]
