I'll hug you more
I'll Hug You More - Laura Duksta,Melissa Iwai

by Laura Duksta

illustrations by Melissa Iwai

age range: 2 to 5 years old

Sourcebooks / Jabberwocky

 

There are so many opportunities during the day for a good hug! When the days starts, when we read a book, to say hello and to say goodbye, to say thank you and good night. And tomorrow we can find ever more opportunities for more hugs.

 

Flip sided book full of beautiful illustrations you feel like touching, and calming rhymed text. Ideal for a bedtime story, right before a huge hug. 

 

I received this copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Flora and the Flamingo
Flora and the Flamingo - Molly Idle

by Molly Idle

 

Flora is so sweet. Flamingo is so elegant.

Flora gets closer to him. She imitates him.

They meet. They agree. They disagree. They communicate in a beautiful danced friendship.

Flora and the Flamingo is different from many picture books I have read. It's simple and beautiful. Wordless, the story is told through the body language of this two adorable characters. It made me feel like dancing!

 

There are two more books in this series: Flora and the penguin (2014), and Flora and the peacocks  (expected publication May 2016). I'm eager to take a look at both of them.

 

Age range: 4 to 8 years old.

Wow It's a cow!
Wow, It's A Cow! - Trudy Harris,Paige Keiser,Jay Harris

By Trudy & Jay Harris

Illustrated by Paige Keiser

 

How do you know the animal you are seeing in the farm is actually the cow? 

In each page of this beautiful picture book you'll find a rhyming description of an animal you mustn't mistake with a cow. A picture on the tab shows the cow acting like that animal, but when you flip the tab you can see the true animal. The kids love to shout the animal's name at the same time they discover it under the tab. Thankfully the cow is finally found at the end of the book where cows usually are, doing what cows usually do. Everything seems to be back to normal then!

The book is really interactive. Some of the rhymes feel a little forced to me, but in the overall it's a funny text, and some pictures are hilarious. Can you imagine a cow swimming belly up, or sitting in a branch?
