Thanksgiving Fun
Turkey Trouble - Wendi Silvano,Lee Harper

"Turkey Trouble", by Wendi Silvano is about a tricky turkey who doesn't want to be on the dinner table for Thanksgiving. Turkey comes up with numerous funny outfits to try to blend in on the farm, but the other animals call him out each time. Turkey comes up with a costume to look like a horse, a cow, a pig, a sheep, and a rooster, but he isn't fooling anybody! They all know it's Turkey. In this story there are repetitive lines so the students can join in while reading! This makes it fun and engaging for them and they are more likely to recall the story. Finally, Turkey has a brilliant idea which saves him from being served on a silver platter. WHEW! Turkey was safe for one more year. Some activities to do with this story would be sequencing of events charts to check for comprehension. Also, the students could do a reader's theater and assign everyone a part to act out. Another fun activity I did with a second grade class was having the students create their own menu and write it out. They were to choose an appetizer, main course, salad, soup, sides, and dessert. They enjoyed this activity and loved sharing their menu with their classmates. Any type of Thanksgiving activity would go along with this cute and fun story.

How not to organize your books

silly trend in bookshelves

 

Obviously, people can do whatever they want with their bookshelves, but this seems like an inane and silly interior design trend.

 

I love the colour on my shelves. Don't you?

Tyrannosaurus Ralph by Nate Evans & Vince Evans (Artwork)
Tyrannosaurus Ralph - Nate Evans,Vince Evans

This comic book is so silly, but I can't deny how fun it is. It is quick paced and action packed. It's just all around weird and not realistic at all, but that hardly matters. I think kids and adults of all ages could like it. I wonder where the series will go from here. I love the characters we have met so far.

 



I enjoyed the artwork.

Honey Moon Dog Daze by Sofi Benitez
Dog Daze (Honey Moon) - Sofi Benitez

A fun, cute book. It is fast paced and has a unique writing style. I found the names of the Moon characters to be a little silly, but in a good way. I have to wonder if the author knew about the Harvest Moon game franchise when they named a character that. Also the three dogs named Manny, Moe and Jack made me laugh out loud. Did the author see a Pep Boys commercial and get inspired or was the names a 100% coincidence? Funny, none the less.

 



I like how Honey is inspired to start a dog walking service after recusing Stormy. Honey seems to be a likeable character and I did enjoy how she got along with her family. I liked the hints that her Turtle backpack might be magical, or is it her imagination? I love the friendship between the three main girls and also how it ended with a possible 4th friend.

One thing that I wish would be different is more description. There seemed to be a lot of telling instead of showing, which could make some of the story a little lackluster. However, I will admit there were several times where I find myself smiling. There is something going for it, and I hope the author continues to write stories for children and adults alike.

Overall, I enjoyed reading this book.

The Last Kids On Earth by Max Brallier & Douglas Holgate (Artwork)

Recently I have been on a children's book reading binge. I found this at the library.

 

I liked it. I think it is a cute way to introduce kids to zombie/monster stuff, while the book is still simple, "clean" and fun. It is a quick paced read. I liked all the characters. I like the little comic bits that are in-between the text.

 

 

Since this is the first book in a middle grade (children's) book, I like to go with a rating that younger me would have most likely given it, which is 4 stars. Adult me would be more mixed between 3 & 3.5.
