From the same author as my children's current favorite book "Anansi the Spider", Gerald McDermott, comes another book from his folk tale series. "Monkey" has the same illustration style as "Anansi" using common shapes which kids really respond to. The story is about a trickster monkey that outwits his predator, a dull crocodile. The crocodile seems a bit too dumb to be a truly compelling story, but I'm not going to criticize an age-old folk tale. Although, I felt like I got a better glimpse of the Ashanti culture (which I knew nothing about) with "Anansi" than I do with Indian culture in this book. All in all, it's a fun read. We'll be reading more from this author in the future.

"Anansi the Spider" was an unexpected hit with my kids. Anansi is a spider that often gets into trouble and needs the help of his six sons. The book explains that the story is a folk tale from Ghana in Africa which helped expand my kids knowledge of the continents. Maybe it's the brightly colored pages or the characters made from common shapes, but my kids asked for this book everyday for a month. I have already put more from this author (Gerald McDermott) on hold at the library.

"'On to the next adventure?' Packrat asked.⠀
'Hope it's a good one!' Roy rubbed his hands together gleefully.⠀
As long as I had my two friends with me, I knew any adventure would be a cool one." ⠀

Cooper and Packrat go on the BEST adventures. Whether they're making new friends, exploring the outdoors, fending off bullies, doing campground errands, or protecting animals, they're always having fun and learning new things. ⠀

Quote from Mystery of the Bear Cub by @tamrawight. Get the #cooperandpackrat series at your local bookstore, or on our website, islandportpress.com. ⠀

This was the exact moment I met Jeff Kinney for the first time and when he signed my 'The Cheese Touch is just too much' t-shirt that I designed myself.

It had the slice of cheese from the first book on the front. I thought it was pretty cool!

Jeff was such a nice man, he was really friendly and chatty. This was the year that Double Down came out and was selling out every where!
I'd already reserved my signed copy at the Ballroom but couldn't resist actually meeting Jeff.

In the wee hours of the morning when other souls were fast asleep, the girl let the magic crackle beneath her skin and flow freely from her veins.
Today's I would like to share a quote I wrote on a spur of the moment for my interview with @thebookishbree. "IF YOU LOVE WHAT YOU ARE WRITING, THE WORDS WILL FLOW LIKE MAGIC FROM YOUR FINGERTIPS" ✨💖 In her interview, Bree had just asked me "are there any tips you can provide for writing a novel for a particular audience". Here is my full answer from the interview:
I’m a big believer in “finding your voice” as a writer. For example, I used to write little emo poems in my teens… and I tried to write a non-fiction novel about my journey through the ghettos of India in my 20’s. But truthfully, I wasn’t very good at either of those. Writing for kids comes to me naturally. So I encourage everyone to play around and find what they’re good at, but also what they ENJOY writing about. If you LOVE what you are writing, the words will flow like magic from your fingertips.
On a more practical level, I always find reading books and watching movies in the genre I am writing helps energise and inspire the brain for writing in that genre.
Gearing up for another checkup tomorrow 😍 Displayed on our book shelf are two doctor checkup books that my 3 year old is loving lately. Check out the one in my stories that has a page that I don’t think would help promote positive coping with medical experiences! 😬👀 #timeforacheckup #bravekids #medicalplay #needles #futurenurse #futuredoctor #booksforkids #kidbookstagram

Yippee! It’s “Geek Week” at the school my girls go to. Talk of designing rollercoasters and building spaceships have filled our rides home. My littlest has to dress up as a robot tomorrow, so we read this story (twice!) tonight before bed. The story has a lovely rhythm and I am in love with the divinely Jetson-esque illustrations. Check out those end papers! 🚀🤖❤️

🐞Lulu's reading accuracy and fluency is really blossoming these days!🌼
I love that she is actually reading me a bedtime story now! She is working really hard on sounding out and blending new words and is realizing that how a word looks is not necessarily always how it sounds! 🐞
Little Phoebe experiences this when learning how to sound out and spell her own name! Phoebe is convinced her Mama spelled her name wrong because the first letter of her name makes the, "Fffff" sound, and her Mama spelled it with the letter "P"! 😊So Phoebe comes up with her own creative way to spell her name!

„Wesoły Ryjek” Wojciech Widłak, ilustracje Agnieszka Żelewska. Nie wiem, czy sięgnęłabym po Wesołego Ryjka, gdyby nie fantastyczny audiobook z Anną Seniuk w roli lektorki. Wypożyczyłam go kiedyś Hubertowi z biblioteki i puściłam przed snem, gdy Leośkowe humory uniemożliwiły nam wspólne czytanie. Nawet nie przypuszczałam, jak bardzo przypadnie mu do gustu. Od tamtej pory słuchał Ryjka wiele razy, a gdy dowiedział się, że jest też „papierowy”, koniecznie chciał go zobaczyć. I po raz kolejny, bardzo charakterystyczne ilustracje, nie do końca wpisujące się w mój gust, Hubertowi zupełnie nie przeszkadzały, a wręcz przeciwnie, stwierdził, że są bardzo fajne. Piękna jest ta otwartość dzieci na różne style ilustracji, prawda 😍? Co do samej książeczki - jest to opowieść o małej śwince, mieszkającej z rodzicami (i nieodłączną maskotką żółwiem), która na swój dziecięcy sposób odkrywa świat i wyciąga wnioski. Książka składa się z jedenastu epizodów, w których narratorem jest sam Wesoły Ryjek, prowadząc coś w formie pamiętnika. Historie są ciepłe, sympatyczne, czasami lekkie, czasami z głębszym przesłaniem, ale zawsze bardzo fajnie podsumowane. Myślę, że przypadną do gustu wielu przedszkolakom 😍 Ja już czaję się na kolejne części #wesołyryjek #wojciechwidłak #wydawnictwomediarodzina @media_rodzina #childrensbooks #kidsbookstagram #kidsbooks #booklover #bestbooks #czytamdziecku #dzieckoczyta #ksiazkidladzieci #bedtimestory #books #bookstagram #picturebook #booksforkids #kidlit #bookish #bookshelf #booklove #ilovebooks #bookobsessed #favoritechildrensbook #favoritestories #boybooks #yeskidsbookstagram #bookreview #kidsreading #hubisiowabiblioteczka

Who does what?

Всем доброго времени суток! Хочу рассказать вам об одной замечательный книге формата "флип топ". 👌 🌕Как она устроена: вы с ребенком читаете вопрос на странице, но не торопИтесь сразу всё рассказывать, ваше сокровище тянет за рычаг и вверху появляется картинка и надпись с правильным ответом. Ваше дитя в полном восторге! Толкаем рычажок обратно и картинка прячется! Ну, не чудо ли? Обычно всем деткам нравятся такие "живые" книги. 🌕Конкретно эта книга познакомит ребенка с разными профессиями. Вы легко и непринужденно покажете и расскажете ему о том, что делает учитель, инженер, врач, космонавт, фермер, почтальон, пожарник, строитель, пекарь, автомеханик и маляр.
🌕Всем кому понравилась пишите в комментариях или директ куда выслать книжечку. 👛500р
