HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Alpha Oops! H is for Halloween 

by Alethea Kontis and Illustrated by Bob Kolar

Ack! It's time for the Halloween show, and A isn't ready yet. But then again, Halloween can only start with one letter; no matter how the A-B-C's normally go. The misbehaving alphabet is putting on a performance full of tricks and treats, and there's no telling who-or what-will take the stage next. 

A is for -- Psssss! A! You're on! A?
Ack! I'm not ready. H has top billing, make her go first.
Yes, ma'am ... H, you're on!

This delightful Halloween book is quite a TREAT!!!!! 

The illustrations, colors and shapes are bright, cheerful, and funny! This book was such fun to read and share with others...

This is one of the most adorable Halloween books that I have read in a long time! It will bring a smile to your face and warm your heart!!!!!!!!!!!
I recommend this fun feast for the eyes for all school, public, private, and home libraries. 

Until the next time!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Happy Reading!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Little Red Writing by Joan Holub and Pictures by Melissa Sweet

Little Red Writing 


by Joan Holub and Pictures by Melissa Sweet

ONCE UPON A TIME IN PENCIL SCHOOL, a teacher named Ms. 2 told her class, "Today we're going to write a story." 
"Yippee!" said the birthday pencil.
said the basketball pencil.

"Sharp!" said Little Red.

So begins a hilarious and exuberant retelling of "Little Red Riding Hood," in which a brave little red pencil finds her way through the many perils of story-telling, faces a ravenous pencil sharpener (the Wolf 3000) ... and saves the day.


I couldn't put this book down! My favorite part was when Little Red said, "I'D ALSO LIKE TO REPORT I HAVE JUST NOTICED WHAT BIG SHARP TEETH YOU HAVE!"

You''ll have to read the rest of the story to see how it ends.............

Until the next time!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Happy reading!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

DOJO DAYCARE by Chris Tougas


by Chris Tougas

SIX LITTLE NINJAS arrive at Dojo Daycare, ready to raise a ruckus. Snack time or story time-- it's always time to tussle! Can Master tame this full-blown riot?

When ninja moms and ninja dads 
Leave their hidden ninja pads, 
They drop their children off to play
At Dojo Daycare for the day.

Shoes removed, the children bow




This children's book was so much fun to read. 

The ninjas kept the dojo master quite busy in this nice read!

The text is poetic, short, and easy to follow. The colors are great! The pictures are created so well that they really don't need text to explain what is going on in the story!

This book will make an exciting story time! The story, pictures, and text are fun!

I would recommend this book for children of all ages in public, school, private, home and of course, daycare libraries!

I'LL SAVE YOU BOBO!!!!!!!!!!!


Eileen & Marc Rosenthal


Willy wants to write a storybook starring Bobo—and act out revenge fantasies on Earl—but Earl keeps wrecking the story (hence the desire to act out revenge fantasies!). Quit it, Earl…and stop stealing Bobo!

But sometimes it only takes a small thing to realize that even sworn enemies have something in common.


I absolutely loved this book!

This book is so well written. I giggled the whole time that I read this book. I just couldn't put this book down. 

Willy, Bobo, and Earl.... They will keep wanting more...

I recommend this entertaining book to all libraries... home, public, private, school.

Happy reading..............

Until the next time....................

Before There Was Mozart: The Story of Joseph Boulogne, Chevalier de Saint-George

Before There Was Mozart: The Story of Joseph Boulogne, Chevalier de Saint-George by Lesa Cline-Ransome and Illustrated by James E. Ransome

JOSEPH BOULOGNE, LOVED MUSIC: the singing of birds, the beat of drums, the peal of church bells -- and most of all, the the soaring notes of his violin. But as the son of a white plantation owner and a black slave, newly arrived in France from the West Indies, what chance did Joseph have for success with his music? Here is the true story of an extraordinary boy who overcame the prejudices of his peers to become one of the finest classical musicians in all of Europe.


This lovely true story of Joseph Boulogne will bring a smile to your face! This incredible story tells the story of the finest classical musician in 18th century France through dynamically wonderful words and pictures! 

 We are taken on a wonderful trip through the extraordinary life of Joseph Boulogne from his birth in the West Indies to his move to France and overcoming racism to be the best classical musician in France in the 18th century and finally performing for the King and Queen of France! This beautifully written, illustrated, and designed book is a gem! I 

As a classical music and history lover, I couldn't put this book down. I have been recommending to many people. Who read the book and loved it as well. The pictures are so realistic that you feel like you are there. There is an "Author's Note" at the end that you must read! 

This book is a must have for all school, public, private, and home libraries! I recommend this picture book for students and adults young and old who love history, music, and a well done book! You won't be disappointed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

 Until the next time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 
 Happy reading!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
