Monday Children’s Book Reviews for August 26, 2013

Fly High, Fly Low by Don Freeman

Fly High, Fly Low, a Caldecott Honor book, tells the story of two San Francisco birds who hatch some eggs in a very unconventional place-the letter ‘B’ in the sign on top of the Bay Hotel. But what happens when the sign is taken down? Told with Freeman’s typical humor and simplicity, the book features breathtaking vistas of San Francisco.” Re-release of a book originally published in 1958.     [JPB FREEMAN]

Me Too! by Valeri Gorbachev

“Chipmunk and Bear have a lot in common, despite their difference in size. And Chipmunk is determined to keep up with his big friend. Warmth and humor fill the snowy day adventures of two friends who, despite their physical differences, share work and play and true companionship.”  Holiday House “I Like to Read”      [JE GORBACHEV]

Play it Again, Mallory by Laurie Friedman

“Mallory is excited about the six-week arts electives program at Fern Falls Elementary–until she gets stuck in her last-choice elective, band. To make matters worse, she is assigned to the tuba, and when she plays, it sound more like passing gas than music. She dreads the showcase at the end of the program. But with some good guidance from her mom and her band teacher, Mallory learns the meaning of ‘practice makes perfect,’ and that, in fact, making music can be lots of fun.” Book 20 of the Mallory series.       [J FRIEDMAN]
