Toddler Toots and Teens on a Thursday!


As school is about to begin, or has begun, for the little kiddies here are some books you might be seeing in the libraries and book shops.

OXFORD ROAL DAHL DICTIONARY
Written by Roald Dahl and Susan Rennie
Edited by Susan Rennie
Illustrated by Quentin Blake
September 1, 2016; 288 Pages
Oxford University Press
Genre: children's, nonfiction, reference, humour, roald dahl's books

(I received an ARC from the NETGALLEY in exchange for an honest review.)

 

I love that this book exists! It takes words and gives it a Road Dahl twist...including novels and characters as examples.  It is not a book you can sit down and read cover to cover...it is a reference sort of book you can pick up here and there.  I highly recommend this book for fans and future fans of Roald Dahl.  A fun book to look at with kids.

HERBIE'S BIG ADVENTURE
Written and Illustrated by Jennie Poh
September 1, 2016; 41 Pages
Capstone Young Books
Genre: children's, picture book

(I received an ARC from the NETGALLEY in exchange for an honest review.)

 

We see Herbie come into the world and grow up to be old enough to go on a foraging adventure.  The illustrations are great as is the story.  This is a great book for those little tikes going to school (or leaving their parents) for the first time.  Herbie is a bit hesitant to leave the nest but with his mother's assurances he sets off on an adventure.  Perfect for the fall and winter - the pictures are great. A fun book to look through.

NEVER FOLLOW A DINOSAUR
Written by Alex Latimer
September 1, 2016; 32 Pages
Peachtree Publishers
Genre: children's, picture book

(I received an ARC from the NETGALLEY in exchange for an honest review.)

 

Joe and Sally find some mysterious footprints and wonder who could have made them.  They start to follow the footprints and look at the clues around to solve the mystery.  A fun creative mystery book for all ages. It is one you will want to read out loud!
