The weekly post where I recap some of the KidLit books I’ve been reading. Ocasionally, I’ll also talk about some adult fiction books as well.
I love mix and match board books and this one is super cute. The colors are vibrant and the monster creations are wacky and funny. My toddler ate this up and even my 9yo enjoyed flipping through it.
I always enjoy Luke Flowers’ illustrations, and I think his style is a perfect match for Diana Murray’s unicorn story. Everything is over the top in this rainbow-glitter-party story. The book is able to be super fun while showing how to be inclusive of everyone.
This is one of my favorite picture books that I have read this year. It was originally published in the Netherlands, so it definitely has a bit different sensibility that many American picture books. The blurb on Goodreads sums up my feelings exactly: “A delightfully quirky celebration of the power of creativity and the secret magic of knitting.” How awesome is that?
Another great read. It is sort of a Death Becomes Her meets The Craft meets Mean Girls. You can see my full review here.
