Book Fair Books

The kids schools are having book fairs this week so I went up to the girls school this morning to check it out. I left with 4 books for about $20. Not too bad. One of the books was for Anthony even though he is bringing me home his wish list today and it's not a book he asked for. I just thought he would like it.

The first book is Skippyjon Jones in Mummy Trouble by Judy Schachner. I really can't review these book because I haven't read them yet.....but tomorrow I will let y'all know what the kids thought of them.

I chose Me and My Mom by Alison Ritchie because it is a beautiful book. I have to admit that I am drawn to books that are pretty. A good story is a plus, but the illustrations get me.

Now Sara picked The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle. She LOVES Eric Carle books. I have to admit that I too am a fan. I find his artwork interesting.

And if you like Eric Carle's work, then you have to check out Lois Ehlert, because her stuff is so similar. I will list some of her books at the bottom.

And for Anthony I picked The Tapestry: The Hound of Rowan by Henry Neff. The story sounds really interesting and the boy will read anything you put in front of him so I'm betting he will love it.

Here are some of Eric Carle's books that we love:

The Grouchy Ladybug
The Very Busy Spider
A House for Hermit Crab
The Very Quiet Cricket
Polar Bear, Polar Bear What Do You Hear?
The Very Lonely Firefly
From Head to Toe
Panda Bear, Panda Bear What Do You See?
1, 2, 3 To The Zoo
Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?

And here are the Lois Ehlert books we love:

Eating the Alphabet
Wag A Tail (illustrated by Michel Slack)
Feathers For Lunch
Leaf Man
Red Leaf, Yellow Leaf

So if you haven't read any of these books, go check them out!!

**Just wanted to add that we have since read the books and they are adorable! I love Me and My's a sweet book and the art is so soft, I love it!
