Monday Children’s Book Reviews for September 2, 2013

September 2, 2013 is LABOR DAY. All Alameda County Libraries are closed.

Patch by David Slonim

“Patch is a good dog. At least he tries to be—but sometimes he finds it hard to remember commands or resist chasing rabbits. Three very short stories of a boy and his dog are combined in this adorably illustrated picture book that honors the special bond between dogs and their people and between friends of all species.”                    [JPB SLONIM]

Are We There Yet? by Sam Williams

“The grass is always greener near the other pond in this fun picture book!

“Eeny, Meeny, Miney and Little Mo, four adorable ducklings, swim with Mama Duck on the pretty pond where they live. But every day Eeny, Meeny, and Miney whine about how bored they are. So clever Mama takes them on a journey—and where they end up is a big surprise! This delightfully told and beautifully illustrated picture book gently teaches toddlers that happiness doesn’t depend on where you are…but how you see the world.”                     [JPB WILLIAMS]
Pete Won’t Eat by Emily Arnold McCully
“Everyone is mad at Pete! Even Mom! But Pete can’t eat that green slop that Mom made for lunch. He won’t even taste it. Mom makes Pete stay when his siblings go out to play, but she feels bad. She is about to make him a sandwich when Pete decides to try the slop. Will he like it?”  A Holiday House ‘I Like to Read’ book.    [JE MCCULLY]
