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 never learned how to hula hoop–my hips always try to go the wrong way. I was super excited to find this one at the library and it was wonderful. I especially enjoyed the ending. And my daughter always gets a kick out of anything involving a hula-hoop because I am so terrible at it. This is a beautiful book.
I am so incredibly thrilled to find this one at my local library–and that it was on hold. It is currently my kids’ favorite picture to read. They will randomly walk around the house singing the song while shimmying their shoulders and stomping their feet. The illustrations are so fun and vibrant. It is a fun take on the original nursery song.
