Book 57/100: Goodnight, Goodnight, Sleepyhead by Ruth Krauss
Goodnight Goodnight Sleepyhead - Ruth Krauss,Jane Dyer

This is a fairly typical "goodnight" board book in which a child says goodnight to everything (goodnight toes, goodnight stuffed animals, etc.) before finally going to bed. Really cute illustrations.

Book 56/100: Pete the Cat - the Wheels on the Bus by James Dean
Pete the Cat: The Wheels on the Bus - James Dean

This is my first Pete the Cat book, and I know it's not representative since it's an adaptation of the Wheels on the Bus song rather than an original story. Still, it's tons of fun! The Wheels on the Bus is one of my favorite songs from childhood, and the rhythm it provides makes this a really fun readaloud (even if my month-old baby did start crying halfway through -- I'll force this book on him again when he's older.) Also, you can't really go wrong with these droll illustrations, which serve as a fun counterpoint to the actions you can do with your child at different points in the song. The illustrations seem to tell a subversive story all their own that is completely disregarded in the text -- like, why is there a lone dog riding this bus full of cats? Is he a dog on the outside but a cat on the inside? I look forward to exploring more Pete the Cat!

Getting caught up

I am way behind on posting my reviews/ratings on here. Plus I started to read some Netgally books, so you will see a bunch of posts from me back to back. I hope that doesn't bother anyone. (I know I have low followers, but still..) And now I have a youtube channel that I don't update enough for lack of space and proper filming equipment. All my social media links are in my profile.

 

I have been on a children book reading binge, even some picture books. We recently bought a bunch of nostalgic picture books and children chapter books.

 

 

There are so many that you can't see them all!

 

Here is some of the picture books you couldn't see in the last photo. Some of these I already owned from my childhood.(Harold and the Purple Crayon, The Fright Before Christmas, The House That Jack Built, and Frog and Toad Together)

Book 54/100: I Love You Like Crazy Cakes by Rose Lewis
I Love You Like Crazy Cakes - Rose A. Lewis,Jane Dyer

A beautiful, child-friendly book about Chinese adoption written in the second-person from a mother to her daughter. Illustrations are adorable. Couldn't manage to read this one aloud without choking up a bit!

Book 51/100: Twinkle Twinkle Little Star by Iza Trapani
Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star - Iza Trapani,Jane Taylor

A riff on the popular "Twinkle Twinkle" nursery song that sends a little girl reeling after her star friend through space. Some of the illustrations are a little awkward, like the somewhat lumpy-looking horse in its stable, but others are gorgeous -- the two-page spread of the little girl swinging off the rings of Saturn make the whole book.
