This Book is Full of Monsters is a silly and adorable story written and illustrated by Guido van Genechten.
Young readers are warned from the beginning and given a list of things they need if they dare to open the front cover of this book that is filled with small, stinky, loud, gross, sleepy and sometimes scary monsters. This book is a fun interactive experience that kids will enjoy. They might even be in for a surprise or two. With van Genechten’s superb artwork and such a zany story, youngsters will be going back to this one time and again.

In this charming and adorable book for preschoolers, a young girl has lost her name. Her brother agrees to help her find it and their journey takes them through their house and yard and into a wonderful alphabet forest where trees, birds, and animals of every letter play along the path.
The Alphabet Forest by Lori Galaske is such a sweet story. Galaske’s adventurous tale is filled with alliteration that helps children learning to read recognize recurring letter sounds. I’m already a fan of Eugene Ruble’s artwork and he did a fine job with bringing The Alphabet Forest alive for readers with excellent use of color and details. I’ll be sharing this one with my friends who have preschoolers.

I received a copy of this book from the author. This review contains my honest opinions, which I have not been compensated for in any way.
Vocabulary building has never been so adorable and fun! Squirrel Superhighway by Anna C. Morrison is a wonderful new addition to her other titles for pre-readers and early readers. Repetitive words and repeated sounds are blended together in this charming story about Duke, a dog who wishes to be a squirrel. As Duke watches the squirrel superhighway working above him, he wonders how he can best help the squirrels gather their nuts.
In addition to a wonderful story, the beautiful artwork by Vanda Lavar will keep readers eagerly turning the pages to see what antics these animals are up to next. I loved the sweet ending and the closing illustration.
Morrison has certainly found her niche. I look forward to reading more of her work.

The strong friendship, trust and love that was so visible in Naptime with Theo and Beau, is once again on full display in Jessica Shyba’s absolutely adorable and unbelievably charming photos.
