Children's Books ages 4-8: The Princess Who Wanted a Friend
Children's Books ages 4-8: The Princess Who Wanted a Friend - Dr. Orly Katz I received this book for free from the author in exchange for an honest review.

4 1/2 stars

I really enjoyed this little book. I loved the rhyming, the story and the little lesson at the end. The book, overall was excellent. The illustrations were a disappointment. They were boring, and unexceptional, some of them were repeated, and they actually distracted me from the story. The story and rhyming were so good that I feel this story deserved some wonderful illustrations to go with it (I think that some beautiful watercolor paintings would fit this book well.)

So, I liked this book a lot. The story was cute, the rhyming was good, and the lesson was wonderful, but the pictures were not good.

Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?
Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? - Bill Martin Jr.,Eric Carle

Who didn't love this book as a child?  Its very engaging for kindergarten children, holding their attention with vivid colors, animals, and easy to understand text.  I would use this book as a reading circle read aloud.  I would read the book aloud to my kindergarten class and lead an activity in colors and sequencing.

13 Monsters Who Should Be Avoided
13 Monsters Who Should Be Avoided - Kevin Shortsleeve

This book was a very pleasant surprise.  I found it for a deal, but it turned out to be very entertaining and clever.  13 Monsters Who Should Be Avoided leaves out the monsters we have all heard of.  Its a poem explaining details and precautions of 13 silly monsters, along with detailed and whimsical illustrations.  Grades 1-3 would really enjoy this book.  This book would be a great addition to Autumn fiction lessons.  I would bring this book to supplement poetry lessons as a read-aloud, particularly during Halloween.

The Girl Who Loved Wild Horses
The Girl Who Loved Wild Horses - Paul Goble

I loved this book when I was a child, and it's still great. It tells the story of a Native American girl who loved wild horses. When the herd living near her tribe flees in fright from a storm, she jumps on the back of one and is carried far away from her tribe. She is seen later, living as one among the wild horses. Tailored for students in 4th and 5th grades, this book makes a great addition to fiction lessons. I would read this book aloud to the class to supplement cultural fiction and native american mythology lessons.
