Snack Time for Confetti by Kali Stileman


From the author of Roly-Poly Egg comes a story of one hungry little bird on the search for something to eat. Confetti is hungry, so she asks her animal friends what she should eat. But everything they suggest sounds yucky.

Snack Time for Confetti by author/illustrator Kali Stileman is absolutely charming. From the storyline to the artwork the details blend together to create an engaging story that will entertain your child ages 3 – 7. Confetti visits with a giraffe, a zebra, an elephant and more trying to find out what she should eat. The book teaches children what various animals eat, even though it’s a story to simply be enjoyed. With a great and funny ending, Snack Time for Confetti will be read time and again.

I received a free copy of this book from the publisher. This review contains my honest opinions, for which I have not been compensated in any way.

One Little Blueberry by Tammi Salzano

Who knew one little blueberry could cause so much trouble? When one little blueberry falls to the ground, all the hungry insects are eager to have it for themselves. Who will end up with this tasty treat?

Counting has never been so much fun as with One Little Blueberry by Tammi Salzano. Coupled with the charming artwork of Kat Whelan, this hardcover with spot laminated cardstock pages, will be a popular read in your house. I found the spot lamination to be quite an intriguing feature, as the glossy spots immediately capture the reader’s eye.

I truly loved this story. It takes a great deal of imagination to create a simple book that teaches counting, but Salzano makes it seem easy. Whelan’s bright and colorful illustrations in some ways matched the simplicity of the text: the angular lines of the ants’ faces, the insects’ dot eyes, the wispy lines of the antenna. Yet, there is so much going on in these zany pictures of insects chasing after the coveted blueberry, that you’re captivated by them as much as you are by the story.

This might just be my favorite book of the spring season!
