Wow, a book list...

See I am starting to get back to a normal routine. I actually got a book list up this week. Wow that has been a long time. I hope that you enjoy them.
First up is My Name Is Not Isabella by Jennifer Fosberry. This book is written really well in my opinion. It has beautiful drawings and a wonderful story line. A little girl tells her mom through out the day that she is not Isabella, but that she is different famous women through out history. It would make a great story read for next month during womens history month.
Next up is Pete and Pickles by Berkeley Breathed. I loved this book. I constantly found myself saying "ahhh, so sweet" through out the whole book. The book is about a "perfectly perdictable pig" named Pete. Everything was very simple and uncomplicated in his life. That is until he found an elephant named Pickles hanging out in his lamp. Then the most unlikely friendship starts.

With two boys the list would not be complete with out a truck book. Melvin Might? by Jon Scieszka fit the bill perfectly. In this story Melvin is a truck that worries about everything, and I do mean everything. That is until one day when his friend is in trouble and he is the only one that can save her. That is if he can stop worrying long enough to do it. Do you think that he does, check it out and see.
Ok I found out about Blackberry Banquet by Terry Pierce on this site. Any of the books that I found on here have been great. This one is a really cute story about animals that have found a blackberry bush and what happens when a bear unexpectedly joins them. The best part is if you want to expand on any of the topics in the books the back is full of different ideas. If there is not enough information for you though make sure to check out the website too. They have even more info on there.
