The Most Magnificent Thing by Ashley Spires

I was given a cute picture book to read and here a short review to go with it.

 

18383325

 

 

I am so glad that I love to read books targeted for all ages. I loved this little book. It was really cute.

 

This is a great picture books for kids, even adults. It tells you to keep trying and never give up, no matter what. This book is told in a simple way to get the point across to young readers. However, people of all ages can get something from this story.

It has a good message. It is okay to take a break when you are trying to do something, but don't stop fully. Practice does make better, if not exactly perfect.

I also really enjoyed the artwork.

The Christmas Sweater: A Picture Book by Glen Beck
The Christmas Sweater: A Picture Book - Glenn Beck,Brandon Dorman,Kevin Balfe,Jason F. Wright,Chris Schoebinger

My family and I enjoyed reading this Christmas story over the holidays. It has a wonderful moral that any age can resonate with. Brandon Dorman’s illustrations had a vintage feel that were quite beautiful and captivating. I would recommend The Christmas Sweater to young and old. I look forward to reading the full novel this book was based on.

The Berenstain Bears and Too Much Vacation
The Berenstain Bears and Too Much Vacation (First Time Books(R)) - Stan Berenstain,Jan Berenstain

What was supposed to be the best vacation ever began going downhill quickly when they realized that their mountain cabin was a crumbling old shack in the woods. There were weeds growing inside the "cabin" and the rowboat was half sunk in the muddiest lake that you have ever seen. Things went from bad to worse. But they did not forget to take pictures with their camera and a few days later, when they had the film developed, they passed the pictures around and laughed so hard they almost cried. Every so often they look at those pictures and have an absolutely wonderful time enjoying the worst vacation that they ever had. One good activity would be to have students write about their worst vacation, or break from school, that they experienced. Ask them if they can laugh about it now.

Clifford's Manners
Clifford's Manners (Clifford 8x8) - Norman Bridwell

This story is about how well behaved Clifford is and how he is so loved because of it. This book tells about many, many good manners. One thing that I like about this book is how out in the margins of the pages it list the manner that is also in the story on that page. This is a great book for younger students. You could read this at the beginning of the year and have a class discussion about the types of manners and behaviors you expected.

Scaredy Squirrel
Scaredy Squirrel - Mélanie Watt

Scaredy Squirrel lives in his tree and follows a very strict schedule. He is scared of everything. One day he finds himself out of his tree and in the unknown. He learns that everything isn't so scary and it can be exciting to try new things. This would be a good beginning of the year book for younger students. You could teach them to branch out and meet new people. One activity would be to have the students add a page to the book about something that they were afraid of.
