Back to the Library They Must Go

Another installment of Back to the Library They Must Go. Here is a variety of books that I recently read, but haven't had a chance to write a review. I have included a rating and summary for each. They range from picture books to non-fiction.

Cool Cats Counting by Sherry Shahan - Summary: Animals count in English and in Spanish. Includes pronunciation guide. Preschool to 2nd grade.
Turn The Page - Jazzy way to count

The Hello, Goodbye Window by Norton Juster - Summary: Tells the story of a little girl who finds a magic gateway in the kitchen window of her grandparents' house, and the voyage of discovery she takes. Kindergarten to 3rd grade.

Turn The Page - Imaginative

Almost Gone: The World's Rarest Animals by Steve Jenkins - Summary: Thousands of animal species have vanished in the last two centuries, and many others are almost gone. Youngsters can find out about these animals as they are introduced to basic science concepts. 2nd grade and up.

Turn The Page - Great non-fiction book

Peggony Po: A Whale of a Tale by Andrea Davis Pinkney - Summary: Peggony-Po, carved out of wood by his father, a one-legged whaler, determines to catch the huge whale that ate his father's leg. 2nd grade and up.

Turn The Page - An original tale

A Father's Song by Janet Lawler - Summary: A father and child react to one another with delight as they play together. Kindergarten and up.
Turn The Page with Caution - Its okay, but wouldn't be a first choice

The Room of Wonders by Sergio Ruzzier - Summary: Pius Pelosi has a Room of Wonders, where people come from miles around to see his treasures, but when the visitors convince him to throw out the very first item he ever collected, Pius no longer gets pleasure from his collection. Kindergarten and up.
Shelve It - Has its moments, but rather a downer overall
