Another Monday, another post about books...
Here are a few books we have been enjoying by author
This is a cute story about 3 little mice who go searching for "the best present of all"
for their Mother's Day gifts.It has illustrations by Jan Brett.
This story with illustrations by David Diaz is about a family returning home to Mexico
from California to visit family for Christmas.The parents talk of returning "home",
but the children don't think of Mexico as home and do not understand why their parents do.
This is a delightful story about a little girl and her Dad buying flowers to plant in a window box for her Mom's birthday surprise. It has colorful illustrations by Kathryn Hewitt and is guaranteed to bring a smile to your face.
Illustrated by Susan Meddaugh, this is a funny story about a Dad trying almost anything to get his daughter to nap before her Mom gets home. You can guess who actually falls asleep.;-)
Lovely watercolor illustrations by Ted Rand bring to life this story about a "secret place" in the city where a river flows and wild animals live or gather that "hardly anyone knows about".
