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 am always on the lookout for books with sloths and I was excited to find this one. I love Willan’s character design. It is also a really fun story about two characters who approach things a little differently, but are still great friends.
My son seems to love books that are bilingual and this one is super fun. I love all the comparisons. I also thought that the illustrations were a lot of fun. We read this one multiple times before returning it to the library.
Oh my gosh, the premise of this one is great! I’ve lost count how many times my kids have asked “why” about something. I think it is totally plausible that a young child could derail anyone’s plans with this incessant need to understand the world. So much fun.
There are not enough books like this one. I love how it presents Henry’s behavior as normal and okay and not different. I think it does a great job of capturing how difficult it can be for anyone to make friends. This is an excellent book for those on the autism spectrum and neuraltypical children alike.
If you are looking for a fantastically fun, middle grade space opera infused with Korean mythology, you have to check this one out. See my full review here.
