Adorable Kids books

August 18, 2011

I've been given the pleasure of reading a couple of kids books that will be coming out soon. These 2 are so adorable, I thought I should share. My household is a BIG storybook household, so these are bound to become part of our library.

Honestly, Red Riding Hood Was Rotten
By: Trisha Speed Shaskan
23 Pages
Ages: 5+
Out now!

Every story has 2 sides. Here's The Wolf's side.

I loved this book! It was so cute! It was interesting how the author turned Red into a little conceited girl. I laughed when the Wolf looked at Red Riding Hood, but only saw things she had in common with apples. Note to self: Always keep apples in the house!

Back-To-School Rules
By: Laurie B. Friedman
36 Pages
Ages 5+
Release Date: September 1, 2011
Percy Isaac Gifford is headed back to school. Here's his list of Dos & Don'ts for school.

This book was so cute! I wish it had been released before my oldest started school. Percy's rules are great and so are some of his explanations for the rules he gives. This professional student has lots to share. I can picture this book in classrooms & libraries. It will definitely find a home on our bookshelves at home.

Join Jen's Corner in reading:

The Count of Monte Cristo
By: Alexander Dumas

Oh how I have missed reading the classics! I've had a real itch to get back to them lately. I've never read The Count of Monte Cristo before, so I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone loves about it. My husband, Dave, has agreed to read it with me since it's his favorite book of all time. the latest installment of  my Journey Through The Classics reading list has been turned into a family reading. My Dad is even seriously thinking of reading it with us. I'm going to try and get my brother & sister in on it, too.

If you would like to read The Count of Monte Cristo feel free to join in! I would love to hear what people like or don't like about this classic. A summary of the book is below.

Dashing young Edmond Dantès has everything. He is engaged to a beautiful woman, is about to become the captain of a ship, and is well liked by almost everyone. But his perfect life is shattered when he is framed by a jealous rival and thrown into a dark prison cell for 14 years.

The greatest tale of betrayal, adventure, and revenge ever written, The Count of Monte Cristo continues to dazzle readers with its thrilling and memorable scenes, including Dantès’s miraculous escape from prison, his amazing discovery of a vast hidden treasure, and his transformation into the mysterious and wealthy Count of Monte Cristo—a man whose astonishing thirst for vengeance is as cruel as it is just.
