Monday Children’s Book Reviews for July 15, 2013

Yoo-Hoo, Ladybug! by Mem Fox

Yoo-hoo, Ladybug!

Where are you?

There you are…

afloat in the bath, with Duck and Giraffe!

Ladybug loves to hide. Come along on a treasure hunt to find this sneaky little bug, wherever she may be!”  [JPB FOX]

Hero Mom by Melinda Hardin

“The moms in this book are superheroes. They may not leap over tall buildings, and they may not have super-human speed. But these moms construct buildings, fly planes, and make tanks roll. They do all kinds of things to help create a safer world. These superheroes are moms. Military moms. Hero moms.”       [JPB HARDIN]

Fred and Ted’s Road Trip by Peter Eastman

“In their latest adventure, Fred and Ted, beloved canine stars of P.D. Eastman’s Big Dog . . . Little Dog, pack a picnic basket, jump in their cars, and hit the open road—but as usual, things don’t go as the doggy duo plan. They encounter muddy roads, thunder and lightning, tire-piercing cacti, and overenthusiastic tire inflating that almost sends Fred into orbit! Series I can read it all by myself    [JE EASTMAN]

Outdoor Crafts: Lots of Fun Things to Make and Do Outside

“A collection of fun, beautiful projects that children can make and do outside, Outdoor Crafts incorporates natural materials that children can find in their backyard, or that they’ve grown themselves in a garden or pot.

“The book is divided into three sections — Make It, Cook It, and Create It. In Make It, children can create labels for the garden, decorate flower pots, and make a scarecrow. In Cook It, children can get recipes for muffins, blueberry cheesecake, lemon ices and more using the crops from their garden. And finally in Create It, readers can learn to make a path in their garden, make paper from corn and more. In Outdoor Crafts the projects are complete with easy-to-follow instructions and step-by-step photography so that kids of all ages can take part and create wonderful crafts they’ll be proud to display.”                                  [J745.5 OUTDOOR]
