Hoppy's Big City Adventure - Gabrielle Grice,Jubayda Sagor ,Eve Arroyo

Hoppy has a lot of friends who warn him on his travels.  There is a storm coming, and he does not seem to care.  He just wants to sit on his lily pad in the sun.  

 

If a storm is coming, where is the sun?  This story is a cute adventure about choices, paying attention, and listening skills.  I found that is was clever, funny, and has great pictures.  This was a great add to my bookshelves for reading to my favorite kids!  I give this book a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

A nice story about friendship with an important lesson in the end. 

This is a fun and simple book. Good team work and problems solving.

The illustrations were cute in a very computer-y sort of way. Overall, a good read.

Canadian classic storybook with lovely art
Baseball Bats for Christmas - Michael Kusugak

Disclaimer: review based off of NetGalley proof

 

I have a feeling I must have read this as a kid; seems to be a rerelease of a book from the '90s. Definitely has that nostalgic feel either way. There's a strong storytelling tone to it, and it's more storybook length than picture book. I'd recommend for early readers, elementary schoolers, or as a read-aloud to toddlers. Lovely, painterly art supports the story of a remote Canadian-Inuit community sometime last century. Fits in with other historical fiction efforts that convey a sense of a simpler time, making your own fun, community and family. The snowy landscape and Christmas references could make it a good holiday gift for children, and I could see it being a teaching tool as well for discussions of Canada's past, the experience of remote communities and First Nations.

5-Minute Disney*Pixar Stories (5-Minute ... 5-Minute Disney*Pixar Stories (5-Minute Stories) - Disney Book Group,Disney Storybook Art Team

A very cute collection of stories. There are stories with a variety of Disney Pixar characters (Monsters, Inc., A Bug's Life, The Incredibles, Ratatouille, Wall-E, Up) and two stories each for some of the more popular ones (Cars, Toy Story, Finding Nemo). The stories were well-done and I loved the illustrations. I especially liked the stories which speculated what minor characters where doing in the movie when the main character had their big moments, such as what the other cars were doing when Lightning McQueen was heading off to the big race or the story of Wall-E from the reject-bots' perspective. There were also many new stories that took place after the movie plot. I really enjoyed this collection of stories, especially since the majority of them were written and adapted by women. It is awesome to see so many women included in the process. Only one critique was that they used the wrong pronouns for Buttercup in the second Toy Story book. They assumed he was a she (probably because he is a fabulous unicorn). It is a tiny, tiny thing, but I like to think the people who wrote the stories like/know about the characters they are writing. Either it was just a typo or the creator of the story has been severely misinformed about Buttercup. Overall, a really good collection of Disney Pixar stories.
