The True Story of the Three Little Pigs
The True Story of the Three Little Pigs! - John A. Scieszka

This is the TRUE story of the three little pigs. The story is told by the wolf's perspective. He tries to explain everything had a reason beside it and he wasn't actually trying to eat the pigs. I would use this story in my class to show my students that you don't know everyone's true motive.

The Polar Express
The Polar Express - Chris Van Allsburg

This book is about a little boy that is having a hard time believing in Christmas. The Polar Express picks him up and takes him to the North Pole. Once he gets to the North Pole he meets Santa and Santa gives him a bell off the reindeer. He looses the bell and then it shows up under his tree the next morning with a note from Santa reminding him to just believe. The little boy grows up and he can always hear the bell, but everyone else can't. I would use this book during Christmas time and to teach my students to just believe.

Click Clack Moo Cows That Type
Click Clack Moo: Cows That Type - Doreen Cronin,Betsy Lewin

This is a book about cows that type. How cool is that? These cows are smart and mischievous. They have a problem with the farmer so they decided to type about it. They are very mischievous. I would use this book in my classroom for a fun book for the kids.

Review: 6 activities for children (Childrens books: fun things to do Book 1)
6 activities for children (Childrens books: fun things to do Book 1) - Eitan Hana

6 ways to get your children outside instead of playing video games...

 

This is a good little book with some activities for children... I could see most of these as fun games for a birthday party or another child-themed event. The great thing is that the author gives you step by step instructions, with pictures, and also the ingredients if anything is needed other than the children themselves! The only downside is that the Author is either ESL (English as a Second Language) or the book was translated, since some of the sentences were a little stilted and formal. In a few cases, I found it difficult to follow the instructions based on the author's writing, however the photos included with each activity usually cleared up any confusion.

Slight syntax issues aside, I think this is a great book for the parents of children.... if nothing else, hopefully it will get them outside and into the sunlight, and several of the activities have physical components so they'll get exercise as well!

 

As always, you can purchase this book from Amazon by visiting http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00FMZ9VL2/?tag=shasworofboo-20.

 

If you enjoyed my review, I encourage you to visit the review on Amazon through the link located in the "source" section at the bottom of this review. Marking a review as helpful is useful to both the reviewer and the writer and/or illustrator of a novel since reviews that are more helpful are generally seen first by the public.

 

NOTE: I was requested to provide an honest review this book by the Author's Assistant in exchange for an electronic copy of the book.
