This book, y’all.
With autumn pecking at my door and apples coming into season, I am nostalgic for beautiful fall picture books, and this one fits the bill.
If you have littles who love apples or are shy or have just started a new school year (at home or away), grab a copy of this book and settle in for a couple hours of true apple fun.
I love Uncle Rocky books, and Sparky Protects is no exception. I’ve said it many times, but James Brewster’s amazing picture books about everyday heroes are perfect for kiddos who dream of crime-fighting, firefighting, and saving lives.
We’ve met Sparky before when Uncle Rocky rescued him to be a firehouse dog. In Sparky Protects, we get to see Sparky in action and find out if he has what it takes to be a fire dog.
With plenty of action and detailed descriptions, Sparky Protects will have your kids cheering for firefighters and appreciating the work a fire dog does.
This completely adorable picture book, which won the Bronze Medal in the 2017 Wishing Shelf Book Awards, stole my heart the moment I viewed its first pages. Goodnight Wishes! is about a mouse family who has to relocate when the farmhouse they live in is torn down. It’s a beautiful story of hope and wishes coming true.
Your littles will completely fall in to Leea Baltes‘ watercolor illustrations which reflect the author’s love of Beatrix Potter. I can’t put into words how happy the illustrations made me as I read about Mama Mouse and her little babies. And when you see the craft I have to go with this gem of a book, you’re totally going to swoon.
James Brewster is at it again. Maybe I should say Uncle Rocky and his brave nephews are saving the day again. Picnic from the Glad to Do It! series is another winner that will have your kids celebrating everyday heroes even more than usual.
Because every little boy wants to be a firefighter. And Mr. Brewster knows how to make it exciting.
