Monday Children’s Book Reviews for March 19, 2012

Just Because You’re Mine by Sally Lloyd-Jones

“Little Red Squirrel tries to guess the reason that his daddy loves him — is it because he is a good High Climber, and Brave, and Fast, and Completely Handsome? Could it be because he’s so Friendly? Or maybe it’s because he’s so good at finding Top Secret Berries?

“The answer is a heartwarming testament to a parent’s love for a child. From New York Times bestselling author Sally Lloyd-Jones and illustrator Frank Endersby comes a classic story about the nature of unconditional love.”                 [JPB LLOYD-JONES]

Fox and Phoenix by Beth Bernobich

“The king of Long City is dying. For Kai Zu, the news means more than it does for most former street rats in the small mountain stronghold, because he and the king’s daughter are close friends. Then the majestic ruler of the ghost dragons orders Kai to travel across the country to the Phoenix Empire, where the princess is learning statecraft. In a court filled with intrigue, Kai and his best (female) friend Yan must work together to help the princess escape and return to Long City.”         [J BERNOBICH]

Inside Stars by Andra Serlin Abramson and Mordecai-Mark Mac Low

“Clear, accessible, and fascinating information about stars – what they’re made of, how far away they are, how scientists study them – has been collected into one volume created in partnership with the American Museum of Natural History. With dazzling photographs and diagrams, plus 10 eye-popping vertical and horizontal gatefolds, Inside Stars is a must-have for any budding astronomer.”              [J523.8 ABRAMSON]
