The Penderwicks: A Summer of Four Sisters, Two Rabbits, and a Very Interesting Boy – Jeanne Birdsall

With summer vacation quickly approaching, I wanted to revisit this favorite. It is an excellent summer read and the firstbook of a five book series.  This review was originally posted on June 22, 2015.

The Penderwicks series was a delightful recent find during a library visit.  This series which features the Penerwick sisters reminds me a great deal of Little Women.  The stories focus on the adventures of the girls and their very distinct personalities.  There is a wholesomeness about these books that is really refreshing.

Can I Tell You a Secret? – Anna Kang

With summer vacation quickly approaching, I wanted to revisit this favorite.  This review was originally posted on August 19, 2016.

Can I Tell You a Secret is a precious book that features a little frog with a big secret – He is scared of the water and cannot swim!  This would be a problem for anyone to be sure, but it is a huge problem for a frog.  Ultimately, Monty the frog learns that conquering your fears is a lot easier when you have the help of a friend.  Can I Tell You a Secret is a darling book that would make a terrific read-aloud.

Chloe and the Closet of Secrets: A Book about Lying – Ginger Hubbard and Al Roland

Using a biblical framework, Chloe and the Closet of Secrets tackles the topic of lying in a manner that children can really see and understand.  Every time Chloe tells a lie a fluff appears.  At first she is able to hide the fluffs in her closet, but soon the closet is reaching capacity.  Further, Chloe is recognizing that lies impact relationships.  This book is a terrific means to start a family discussion about the importance of telling the truth.

Sam and the Sticky Situation: A Book about Whining – Ginger Hubbard and Al Roland

Sam and the Sticky Situation is a silly story about whining and addresses the fact that there are much better ways to communicate.  Bright colorful illustrations bring the story to life.  The book includes a parent resource page which provides discussion questions for families.
