Monday Children’s Book Reviews for August 19, 2013

Some Monsters Are Different by David Milgrim

“A warmhearted celebration of individuality describes the many differences found among monsters, from beasts who are picky or will eat anything to creatures who chatter or remain quiet, explaining that all monsters are wonderful just the way they are.”    [JPB MILGRIM]

You’re Wearing THAT to School?! by Lynn Plourde

“’Oh, yes, yes!’ Penelope is so excited about the first day of school that she’s doing her happy hippo dance. She can’t wait to wear her rainbow sparkle outfit, bring her favorite stuffed toy for show-and-tell, and share a big picnic lunch with all her new friends.

“’Oh, no, no!’ says her best pal Tiny, who started school last year. He has a few tips for Penelope about fitting in without sticking out.”              [JPB PLOURDE]

Twinky the Dinky Dog by Kate Klimo

“The world treats Twinky like a dinky dog. The only problem is that Twinky doesn’t feel dinky. What can a little dog do to prove the age-old adage that size doesn’t matter?  Twinky The Dinky Dog is an ideal Step 3 reader for children who are ready to begin reading on their own.”               [JE KLIMO]

Remember Dippy by Shirley Reva Vernick

“Between helpings of mouthwatering shortcake, mysterious ferret disappearances, and a romance that misfires, twelve-year-old Johnny discovers an unexpected, improbable friendship.”        [J VERNICK]
