The weekly post where I recap all the KidLit books I’ve been reading. Occasionally, I’ll also review some adult fiction books as well.
This past week I’ve been taking care of sick kiddos and now I have got the stomach bug too. So a short list for this week.
Plant a Kiss
written by Amy Krouse Rosenthal

Like so many picture books, I grabbed this one off the shelf because of the cute cover. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The cute illustrations have actual glitter! And rhyme in pictures can be a tough thing to get right. Amy Rosenthal did an amazing job and was a joy to read aloud to the kiddos.
Sad, the Dog
written by Sandy Fussell
illustrated by Tull Suwannakit
I picked this one up because we are a house full of dog people. I liked that the story was from the perspective of the dog and how his interactions with people shaped how he viewed himself. Overall, a good story.
