Review: Sophia Martinez: My Family Adventure




From the author of Zapato Power, another delightful early chapter book. The book contains three stories, each an adventure featuring Sofia, a seven year old navigating school, family, and pets! Includes Spanish words with a glossary of definitions. A light, fun alternative to endless Magic Tree House.

Review: Elephant and Piggie: The Thank You Book

Mo Willems' last Elephant and Piggie book arrived at the library today. By the end of the book Mr. Roquet looked something like this:

In the book, Elephant and Piggie say thanks - to all of the friends that shared their adventures over the last 8 years and 25 (!) books, to each other, and, finally, to us, the readers. It's a sweet and sad farewell to this beloved series. Have the tissues ready before you go near this one.
