Book Time

Granny's Dragon by Lisa McCourt. If you have a child that is scared to got to bed this is a story that you probably want to read. The little girl does not think she should go to bed in her room because there are probably monsters. Her Granny teaches her how to overcome the fears.
Rotten Richie and the Ultimate Dare by Patricia Polacco. Trisha has a problem, her brother Richie. She thinks that he is the worst thing in her life. He is always teasing her about dance. That is until one day when she dares him to join the class and participate in the recital. He agrees as long as she joins in on one of his hockey games. Wonder what happens, make sure to read it.
The Frog with the Big Mouth by Teresa Bateman. The pictures in this book are wonderful. They are so bright and full of life. The story is a cute way to teach little ones to keep there ego in check (I certainly know my little guy needs to learn that lesson)

On a Tall Tall Cliff by Andrew Murray. Busby and Puffle live on a very tall cliff and are the very best of friends. One day Busby ask Puffle for some favors. Puffle agrees and says that he would do anything for him. The request start to get bigger and bigger. Puffle actually starts to wonder if Busby is trying to make a fool of him. Check out the book and see what the request are and why he makes them. A very nice story about friendship.
