23 January 2009 Jackie 2

I’ve come across a couple of books that Ian just love and I had to share them. The first one is Fisher Price’s Little People Let’s Go to the Zoo!.  It’s a great board book that doesn’t have a lot of reading content, but it has a ton of things […]

I’ve finally read another Dr. Seuss book that just completely took me by surprised. One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish is filled with more tongue twisters. I never knew that, but whereas Fox in Socks takes on a level of difficulty that even got me tripping up, I […]

It’s not often that I’ll misjudge a cover, but I actually did that this time with Lady Flatterley by Linda Wagner. When I first saw it, I thought it would be a little too girly for Ian, so I was hesitate to review it; but I’m glad that I did […]

I’m not sure what I think about The Tutu Ballet by Sally Lee. On the one hand, it’s a cute little book about a ballet class involving animals and I can see how a lot of kids will like that. It did actually keep Ian’s attention a lot longer than […]

For those of you who have been reading LE for awhile, you know I have a toddler at home and when an opportunity comes along to review a children’s book, I take it. With that said, I was given the chance to read The Dragonfly Secret by Clea Adams and […]

Back in March, I posted an article on Ian’s favorite books. It’s been a few months and while he still really enjoys those novels, he has added a few to the list. Right now, Ian is not at the stage where he’ll read on his own, however, he’s all about […]
