A fun story that will delight young readers is what you’ll find in Don’t Cook, Mom by Jackie Myers.
When twins Ellie and Nellie smell burnt food again, they know Mom is cooking. They try all kinds of tricks to keep her from cooking, but she always seems to outwit them. So, they come up with one more plan they think will work.
I couldn’t stop laughing as I read this silly story about two girls trying to find a way to keep their mom out of the kitchen. With plenty of antics Don’t Cook, Mom will have everyone giggling. Jack Foster provided the artwork for this story. I liked how the pages without full artwork had artistic elements in the corners of the pages. It made for a little something special as the reader turned the pages.
Whether kids love their mom’s cooking or would rather she just ordered out, Don’t Cook, Mom will be enjoyed by all.

Simon’s Skin by Nidhi Kamra teaches is a funny way to teach youngsters to be comfortable in their own skin.
Simon thinks his skin is boring. So, he tries on a variety of different skins. He quickly comes to a surprising conclusion.
This is such a neat book. Between the catchy text and the vibrant artwork, children are bound to be thrilled with it. Though I try not to make many comparisons to other books, Simon’s Skin reminds me of a modern I Want to Be Somebody New! by Robert Lopshire. Artist Diane Brown’s colorful artwork will definitely make youngsters want to pick up the book, but it is Kamra’s engaging story that will keep them turning the pages. Having read books from Kamra before, I knew this would be a good one. This topic is also timely, because it teaches kids to be comfortable in their own skin.
A silly story with a good lesson hidden inside is what you’ll find in Simon’s Skin.

A fun way to encourage reading and play time that doesn’t involve sitting in front of a screen has just arrived with The Great Toy Revolt by Lance K. Ewing.
In this zany story, neglected toys send three brothers notes about being neglected. They hope to sway the brothers into turning in their electronic devices for books and their older toys they used to enjoy playing with.
The Great Toy Revolt is a really cute story with colorful artwork by Justin Green. A quick read, parents could use this story to encourage youngsters to swap out screen time for reading, enjoying time outside, creating music, or just having fun without devices. It sure beats lecturing them about it.
