The Gingerbread Man Loose at The Zoo by Laura Murray

61aaNXlMUdL._SX387_BO1,204,203,200_

Back of Book:
Is there anything more fun than a class trip to the zoo? The Gingerbread Man and his classmates don’t think so, and they get to solve riddles on a WILD scavenger hunt. They meet giraffes, monkeys, and even a fox (especially scary for a Gingerbread Man!).

But a zoo full of critters is a tricky place for a tasty cookie—even a very fast one—and the Gingerbread Man ends up separated from his friends. He needs to solve all of the riddles to catch up with his class and help someone else who is lost.

I’ll be a detective. I know that I can!
I’ll solve all these clues. I’m the Gingerbread Man!

Animals galore and a trail of clues make the Gingerbread Man’s latest adventure his wildest one yet.
My Review:
My students have always been fans of the Gingerbread man stories. They love watching him get into all kinds of trouble. The Day of the zoo is another terrific read aloud. The rhyming and vocabulary are perfect for younger readers. The word bubbles make the story unique and keeps readers attention. The illustrations are fun, and allow readers to see every aspect of the story. Great story to teach children predications.

Back of Book:
Bonjour! Escargot is a beautiful French snail who wants only two things:
1. To be your favorite animal.
2. To get to the delicious salad at the end of the book.
But when he gets to the salad, he discovers that there’s a carrot in it. And Escargot hates carrots. But when he finally tries one―with a little help from you! he discovers that it’s not so bad after all
My Review:
I absolutely fell in love with this story. It is among my favorite picture books have I have read this year. This is one of those books that will grab children, and keep then entertained for the entire story. I love that the book gives children directions on each page to follow. Escargot is a very loveable character and readers will fall in love with his personality. This story is sure to be a hit with everyone in your family. I can say that I didn’t expect that a book about snails would be so fun. The illustrations are so fun and colorful. Each page gives Escargot personality and depth. The text in this book is easy to read, and perfect for beginning readers. I highly recommend this book.

Cookiesaurus Rex By Amy Fellner Dominy

51wojmgT72L._SX383_BO1,204,203,200_

Back of Book:
As soon as Cookiesaurus Rex comes out of the oven, he declares that he is King of All Cookies. He should be frosted before all of the standard-shaped cookies, in a nice bright green. But the other cookies are getting sprinkles, or shiny stars, or even gumdrops . . . WAIT ONE STINKIN’ STOMPIN’ MINUTE! Cookiesaurus wants a do-over. Problem is, he might not end up with the kind of “do” he wants. Readers will love the funny back-and-forth between this cheeky cookie and the hand that frosts him. See who gets his licks in at the end!
My Review:
I have noticed a trend this year that many picture books have characters who speak to a third party or the reader. I believe that it is a very clever idea. Cookiesaurus Rex wants everything that all the other cookies have. He becomes very demanding until the person frosting the cookies has had enough. A battle ensues that will bring a great deal of laughter to readers. There is also an excellent moral in this book about not demanding things from others. AG Ford brings each change of the cookie to life. The final few pages are my personal favorite. This is a perfect book that combines laughter with the understanding that you can’t always get what you want the second you want it.

51-1YF8qmWL

Back of Book:
What’s Making Walter C. Laugh? is a whimsical story. Each page will bring giggles to children and adults as they wonder What is Making Walter C. Laugh? Is it a goldfish dancing with a banana on the kitchen table? Is it a snowman eating pizza in the bathtub?
My Review:
I was contacted by the very kind Ginny Jordan, and asked to review What’s Making Walter C laugh? The review is my own opinion. I love finding stories that make children laugh. To me, a child’s laughter is among the greatest sound in the world. So, when I picked up this story, I knew I and my students were in for a real treat. This is such a fun and imaginative story that is sure to bring on the giggles. The illustrations are beautifully done, and allow readers to picture the silly concepts that could be making Walter C laugh. My personal favorite picture was the one of the unicorns unicycling while juggling ice cream cones. As teacher, I can using this book as a writing prompt to see what else could make Walter C laugh. The book is a great length and is a great beginners book. I truly hope that Ginny continues to write more stories.
