★★★★

Lucy and company includes, Marcel (mouse), Henry (rabbit), Dot (turtle), and new friend, Adrian (snail).  This collection includes three stories.  The first one is about friendship, snacks and sharing.  The second story is about a treasure hunt and the third is about Hatchlings.  The illustrations are well done and the stories are adorable.  A fun read for the Fall!

ON OUR WAY TO OYSTER BAY: MOTHER JONES AND HER MARCH FOR CHILDREN'S RIGHT
Written by Monica Kulling 
Illustrated by Felicita Sala
September 6, 2016; 36 Pages
Kids Can Press
Genre: children's, picture book, history, children's right

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

★★★★1/2

Mother Jones, Mary Harris Jones, was a teacher and also a dressmaker.  After the loss of her husband, children and dress shop, Mary started to work with labour organizations and became a champion for labour unions.  In this picture book we see how Mother Jones organized marches for protesting the lax laws of child labour.  The illustrations in this book are gorgeous and the story - while is for older tots - is a great one for teachers and parents.  It is a great learning tool to teach kids about history in a fun way.  I highly recommend this picture book!

A SQUIGGLY STORY
Written by Andrew Larsen 
Illustrated by Mike Lowery
September 6, 2016; 32 Pages
Kids Can Press

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

★1/2

 A super cute story about a young boy learning to write a story.  He wants to be like his big sister who reads and writes stories.  She advises him to try as every word starts with a letter - which he does know.  I thought the siblings were adorable and any book on writing and reading is great in my opinion.

MAX AT NIGHT
(Max: #2)
Written and Illustrated by Ed Vere
September 1, 2016; 32 Pages
Sourcebooks Jabberwocky; Puffin
Genre: children's, picture book, bedtime, cats

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

★★★★

Max is tired and it is his bedtime.  He has had his milk, brushed his teeth and said goodnight to everyone but the moon.  He cannot see moon and is unable to sleep until he find the moon.  This story is a modern version of Goodnight moon and just as adorable.  I recommend this book to any parent who read bedtime stories.
