Monday Children’s Book Reviews for August 10, 2015

little white fish Little White Fish by Guido Van Genechten

“Little White Fish is in tears. It can’t find its mommy and asks for help from a red crab, orange starfish, yellow snail, green tortoise, blue whale, purple octopus. Look, there’s mommy with all the colors of the rainbow!”                                    [JPB GENECHTEN,G]

 roger is reading a bookRoger is Reading a Book by Koen Van Biesen

“All Roger wants is some peace and quiet so he can read his book. Unfortunately, the girl in the apartment next door has hobbies of her own — very loud hobbies! But when Roger gives the girl a book of her own, she discovers that reading can be just as much fun as playing basketball or banging a drum.

“This playful and engaging read-aloud from an award-winning Belgian author shows readers that shared activities can lead to rewarding friendships.”                     [JPB VAN BIESEN,K]

ellies story Ellie’s Story: A Dog’s Purpose Novel by W. Bruce Cameron

“Ellie is a very special dog with a very important purpose. From puppyhood, Ellie has been trained as a search-and-rescue dog. She can track down a lost child in a forest or an injured victim under a fallen building. She finds people. She saves them. It’s what she was meant to do.

“But Ellie must do more. Her handlers–widowed Jakob, lonely Maya–need her too. People can be lost in many ways, and to do the job she was born to do, Ellie needs to find a way to save the people she loves best.”                                          [J CAMERON,W]

spectacular spotsSpectacular Spots by Susan Stockdale

“With engaging rhymes and bright, bold images, award-winning author and illustrator Susan Stockdale introduces young readers to the many ways in which animals benefit from their spots. An afterword tells a little bit more about each animal and where it lives, and readers can test their knowledge of animal spots with a fun matching game at the end!”     [591.472 STOCKDALE]
