A genius boy and his talking dog
Mal and Chad: The Biggest, Bestest Time Ever! (Mal and Chad, #1) - Stephen McCranie

 

 

Mal is a child genius and Chad is a talking dog. Mal pretends to be just a normal kid so he can stay in grade school, either because he doesn’t want to grow up too fast or because he has a crush on Megan (a girl in his class). Mal and Chad do everything together from scuba diving in the kitchen sink to traveling back in time to the age of the dinosaurs. The story is fun and filled with mayhem and adventure. The drawings are simple and in black and white. They show the character’s emotions and portray a sense of excitement when the story calls for it. McCranie originally created Mal and Chad as a comic strip for a college newspaper. There are three books in the Mal and Chad series.

 

This one was very cute and funny. I actually laughed out loud at times. Another good addition for our elementary school library (at least I hope so).

The Biggest Valentine Ever
The Biggest Valentine Ever - Steven Kroll,Jeni Bassett

This is a great book to use around Valentine's Day. It is a short story about two mice who are best friends. They have the same Valentine and begin to compete against each other to make the better Valentine. The two finally decide to come together and make one giant Valentine for their teacher. I would definitely use this story as a read aloud during Valentine's Day festivities. Also, it could be used for a lesson on sequencing as well as plot elements.

Emotional story
Your Biggest Fan - Graylin Fox

I liked this story. There are a lot of ups and downs, and the ending is not what I expected. This story follows Mary from her youth to her adult life. She has an obsession with her favorite musician, even while in college. With some help from new friends, she learns to let go and tries to find happiness. She finds that one that she wants to build a life together but is not prepared for the rough road. Her unhappiness culminates with a very unhappy woman who feels she does not have any choice. I cried as I read, felt the emotions Mary experienced.

I received a copy of this story through Candid Book Reviews, and this is my unsolicited review.

Dan the Biggest Dump Truck by Chris Adams
Dan the Biggest Dump Truck - Chris Adams

Dan the Biggest Dump Truck by Chris Adams is a cleverly written story for children ages three to seven. I gave it five stars because my favorite little boy wanted me to read it again and again.

 

This huge dump truck looks everywhere for a job and is told he is too big to help build big houses or bridges. After searching everywhere he finally finds the perfect job.

 

I received a complimentary copy from Rowman & Littlefield, Muddy Boots and NetGalley. That did not change my opinion for this review.

 

Link to purchase: https://www.amazon.com/Biggest-Dump-Truck-Chris-Adams/dp/1630760560

 

This book is in pre-order status until February 1, 2017. I could not leave a review on Amazon or Barnes & Noble.
