Monday Children’s Book Reviews for December 9, 2013

Some fun new picture books to check out:

How to Be a Cat by Nikki McClure

“A delightful picture book in every way. Beginning with the paw-print endpapers, youngsters will know that they are in for an adventure. The simplicity and flow of page design are beautifully done as viewers follow a kitten and his mother as she teaches him basic feline behavior.”         [JPB McCLURE]

Pete the Cat and His Magic Sunglasses by Kimberly and James Dean

Pete the Cat is back in artist James Dean’s picture book Pete the Cat and His Magic Sunglasses, written by Kimberly Dean. Pete the Cat wakes up feeling grumpy—nothing seems to be going his way. But with the help of some magic sunglasses, Pete learns that a good mood has been inside him all along. Fans of Pete the Cat will love watching him take his positive outlook and transform a grumpy day into an awesome day!”                  [JPB DEAN]

Tallulah’s Nutcracker by Marilyn Singer

“Just in time for Christmas, Tallulah is about to get her fondest wish—a starring role in a real production of The Nutcracker—and she works very hard to be the most marvelous mouse of all, but opening night brings some surprises.”       [JPB SINGER]

Zoomer’s Out-of-This-World Christmas by Ned Young

“Celebrate Christmas with the lovable, hilarious dog Zoomer! It’s the day before Christmas, and Zoomer and his brothers are outside looking for signs of Santa Claus—and then a spaceship from outer space lands in their backyard!

“They all have fun playing with their new alien friends. But a piece of the space family’s saucer goes missing, and they won’t be able to get back home in time for Christmas. It looks like there’s no hope for blastoff. Then clever Zoomer comes to the rescue with the perfect low-tech solution.

“With aliens, Christmas, and dogs, Ned Young’s picture book is definitely out of this world.”     [JPB YOUNG]
