A Bear of a Christmas - A.J. Cosmo

Welcome to Christmas In July and One Sentence Review for A Bear of a Christmas by A J Cosmo.

 

I have been collecting his wonderful illustrated children’s books for some time now, waiting for the perfect opportunity to share. If you are looking for something to entertain your youngster over the summer, consider some A J Cosmo reading.

MY REVIEW

 

When one of the cubs asks, “Mom, why doesn’t Santa visit bears?”, this cute story unfolds as mama bear tells them why Santa doesn’t visit them on Christmas Eve, and Bo Bo’s solution to the problem puts a smile on my face, making me believe the saying, Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

Animated Animals. Pictures, Images and Photos 4 Stars

The Red Pyramid ★☆☆☆☆
The Red Pyramid - Rick Riordan,Kevin R. Free,Katherine Kellgren

Boring with incredibly simplistic writing. Yes, I know it's middle grade fiction with children as the target audience, but so was the first Harry Potter and The Hobbit, which both offered immediately engaging characters, fascinating new-but-familiar worlds, and a sly humor that sucked me in immediately. This... didn't.

 

Audiobook via Audible. I gave it a full 30 minutes before I DNF'd.

Long overdue + Anniversary
The Phantom Tollbooth - Jules Feiffer,Norton Juster

"...the most important reason for going from one place to another is to see what's in between..."

 

There were several lines from The Phantom Tollbooth that I could have chosen to start this blog post but this one really stuck with me. It might come as a surprise for you to learn that this was the first time I had read Norton Juster's classic work for children. It has been on my TRL for years and I finally knuckled down and checked out a copy. I'm glad that I did because it was just what I needed. For those who haven't been initiated, The Phantom Tollbooth is the story of a little boy named Milo who seems to make his way through the world with a listless, bored attitude...until a mysterious package appears in his bedroom. What happens next is a pun lovers' dream. (If you're a fan of grammar and word play then this is the book for you.) Milo goes on an adventure which will totally change the way he looks at the world. This is the perfect book to create lifelong learners because it's all about critical thinking. (I realize that I'm making this sound like homework but I swear it's fun educational learning.)

 

A/N: Today marks 6 years that I've been posting my book reviews online. I can't believe that something that started as a fun little side project has turned into my second job (albeit unpaid). I feel very proud of how far I've come and I am very much looking forward to the future (and all of those books!). Thanks to those who have been around from the beginning and those just now discovering me (hello!). I hope that in some small way I've helped you to find your next great read and somewhat brightened your day.  Here's to the next 6 years! :-D

Book 36/100: I Just Want to Say Good Night by Rachel Isadora

I Just Want to Say Good NightI Just Want to Say Good Night by Rachel Isadora
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I was so charmed by an illustration from this book in the Hornbook magazine that I just had to see the whole thing.

The storyline is typical -- little girl doesn't want to go to bed, so she delays it by listing all the things she has to say goodnight to before she goes to sleep. The illustrations did not disappoint. Lala is adorable, the African scenery is stunning, and the details had me lingering on each page -- a cat peeking out from behind a hut there, mother cradling a younger baby in her arms as she tries to get Lala in bed, etc. And since I had it in the house, I decided to read it aloud to my baby (still in utero), so it also holds the distinction of being the book for baby's first storytime!

Mostly Monsterly ★★★☆☆
Mostly Monsterly - Tammi Sauer

Although the concept of a little monster who doesn’t quite fit in at Monster School because she’s a little too sweet is kind of cute, it really didn’t connect for me. I guess I don’t see the fun in a monster girl who likes stereotypical little girl things. The illustrations were cute, though.
