Last year I had the pleasure of discovering Pete the Cat which I have previously reviewed. This year he is back and headed to school. Pete takes readers on a school tour all the while “rocking in his school shoes”. As he visits the library, the lunchroom, and the playground he always has a positive […]

Little by Little – Amber Stewart

Little by Little is one of the best books I have found about learning to swim. Otto the Otter is able to do many things well including being kind to frogs. There seems to be only one thing he is not able to do – swim. The story follows his attempts to learn to swim […]

Tickly Octopus – Ruth Galloway

Tickly Octopus is just plain fun. Our daughter loved the idea that an octopus would be ticking his friends under the sea. As a mom what I love about this book, is that through going on an undersea adventure, the octopus learns that he has lots of talents beyond simply being able to tickle. It […]
