Misc Children's Books Part 1
Be Bold! Be Brave! Chiquitos: 11 Latinas Who Made US History - Naibe Reynoso,Jone Leal
The Little Horse - Luke Helmer
Mosque - David Macaulay
Aesop's Fables Box Set 1 - Reading Eggs
Mama's Daycare - Swapan Debnath,Ngozi Edema
The Perfect Potty Zoo: The Funniest ABC ... The Perfect Potty Zoo: The Funniest ABC Book (Potty Training Book, Rhyming Book for Kids 2-5 Years Old, Toddler Book, potty training books for toddlers, potty book) - Agnes Green,Zhanna Mendel
The Big Splash - Ed Ouano
Arial the Chef - Mary Nhin,Jelena Stupar
It's Not Easy Being a Unicorn - Beatriz Rare
Kaulele The White Fairy Tern - Carleigh Vollbrecht

With the exception of Mosque, I picked these up for free.

 

Mosque is good, and if you have read the author's other books, it is like those.

 

Be Brave! Be Bold! is actually pretty good and is about famous Latinias.  While I know the book is intended for a young audience, there could have been a bit more in the bios about the women at the end.

 

The Little Horse is a Christian story about a horse who was present at Christ's birth.  It is actually one of the better ones.  It reminded me of Nestor the Long Eared Christmas Donkey or the Little Drummer Boy Christmas shows.

 

The Aesop Box Set  contains a few fables, but the illustrations are good.  It's nice.

 

Mama Daycare is a sweet book that presents the fear of going to school for the first time in a different way.  It was cute.

 

The Perfect Potty Book is extactly as advertised.

 

Arial Chef - not the best, but the bits at the end about how to make Sushi were nice.

 

Big Splash - good if you like Dinos

 

It's Not Easy Being Unicorn and Kaulele the Fairy Tern are the best two.  Wonderful story about unicorn that you can see being adapted by Pixar.  Interesting story about a bird.

Batman: Black and White (2013- ) #1 - Chip Kidd,Neal Adams,Joe Quinones,Michael Cho

So I picked up a bunch of Batman freebies.  I'm not a huge Bats fan.  I really only read him when Catwoman shows up because she's awesome.

 

So - 

 

DCeased is basically the DC universe vs. zombies.  It's an interesting idea but I didn't find it particularly "must know what happened next".

 

The Batman Black & White series are short Batman stories.  Somewhat Noir in feeling, sometimes by people associated with the cartoon series.  An Innocent Guy is the best one because it actually uses something I think some villain should have done before.

 

The Batman Adventure one features Batgirl.  It's entertaining, but Batgirl is drawn in such a way that she would have no room for a stomach.

 

(I believe most if not all, of these are still free for kindle).

Not by Jemsin
Harry The Christmas Mouse - Janelle Dimmett, N.G.K.

It is a cute Christmas story but it is not by the famed science fiction/fantasy author.

Good book about reading
Quint the Bookmobile: Barnabus Rides in Style! - Kathleen Quinton,Mousam Banarjee

Okay, I liked the use of the dog and the mobile library. The love of reading the children show is great.

But why are all the children, for the most part, blonde and blue eyed? It's spooky.

 

This was the reason why I at first gave it two stars on GR.  But then the author left a nice comment on the review saying that the children were her grandchildren.  She just wanted to put them in book. Okay, a little less spooky. Still would want some more diversity but it makes sense.  (FYI - she didn't ask that I change my review or anything, even thanked me. She just answered the question).

FYI - author's last name is Lin - also still free on kindle
The Emperor Who Built the Great Wall - Jillian Lin

This was a pretty good children's history of Qin Shi Huang. It includes facts and questions at the end. Really nice.
