Too Many Carrots by Katy Hudson

91n6e8w3rvlI received a copy of this book from Netgalley/the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

My daughters and I love to read together. I hadn’t seen very many picture books on Netgalley recently, so I was very excited when I received the opportunity to read several around the same time.

Too Many Carrots was written and illustrated by Katy Hudson. The story begins by introducing the reader to Rabbit, who has outgrown his burrow. The problem is that he has too many carrots, and there is no room left for anything else. So, instead of downsizing the carrot collection, he sets out for greener pastures. Rabbit tries to move in with Tortoise- cramming himself into Tortoise’s shell. That doesn’t work out very well, and Rabbit and Tortoise must seek shelter elsewhere. I don’t want to give too much away, but needless to say, we are introduced to a variety of animals, and their living situations. Rabbit is not a very good houseguest, and he needs to make amends for the havoc he has caused. There’s just one problem- Rabbit really loves his carrot collection. Are the carrots more important than his friendships? Continue reading

Mr. Postmouse’s Rounds by Marianne Dubuc

I received this book from Netgalley/the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

My three girls love to read, so I was very excited about the prospect of reading Mr. Postmouse’s Rounds to them. This delightful picture book was written and illustrated by Marianne Dubuc.

The premise is simple: the reader is treated to watching Mr. Postmouse make his rounds through the neighborhood, which is a delightful place, with a wide variety of habitats. Mr. Postmouse delivers to the expected forest animals, but some of his customers live in the ocean, and others live on top of a snowy mountain. Mr. Postmouse does whatever it takes to make sure that the packages are delivered.
Mr. Postmouse does not encounter any adversity along the route, although he is grateful that he doesn’t have to deliver anything to Mr. Snake! Continue reading

March Grand Prix: The Fast and the Furriest by Kean Soo

I received this book from Netgalley/the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

My oldest daughter is a huge fan of graphic novels. She is always looking for new material to read. We’ve actually run into a problem; many of the graphic novels she wants to read are more suited to a teenage audience and the content is a little too mature for an eight-year-old girl.

I was very excited about the opportunity to read March Grand Prix: The Fast and the Furriest because I knew it would be perfect for her. We aren’t familiar with artist Kean Soo, but I’m sure she will want to seek out his Jellaby books after this. Continue reading

Poppy’s Best Paper by Susan Eaddy

I received this book from Netgalley/the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

I know you’re not supposed to judge a book by its cover, but as soon as I saw Poppy’s Best Paper, I knew that my three girls would love it. This delightful picture book was written by Susan Eaddy and illustrated by Rosilande Bonnet.

Poppy is an enthusiastic little rabbit full of joie de vivre. Some might also call her “spirited”. Poppy wants to be a writer when she grows up, so when her class receives an assignment to write about what they want to be when they grow up, Poppy doesn’t spend a lot of time on her paper, but she is sure that she is going to be the one whose paper is read aloud by the teacher. When she isn’t picked, she huffs and doesn’t congratulate her best friend, whose paper was the one read aloud. When this scenario is repeated the next day, Poppy throws a tantrum and continues to misbehave at home. Can she pull herself and write the perfect paper? Continue reading
