Children's Book Reveiw: Pugtato Finds a Thing by Sophie Corrigan

Book Description:
Enchanting illustrations. Giggle-inducing text. Unique and loveable characters. Join Pugtato and his cute and quirky pack of pals in this heartwarming picture book that celebrates the power of friendship, compassion, and believing in your own unique gifts. 

When Pugtato’s simple, quiet life is disrupted after he digs up a strange object in his garden, he enlists his best “spuddies” to help (they are more clever than he is, after all). Tweetroot is certain it’s a new egg for her nest. Tomatoad is quite sure it’s a toy just for him. And Purrsnip simply won’t stop scratching it! Luckily, Pugtato has another very special spuddy to ask …

My Review:
Pugtato is a delightful and fun read. Sophie Corrigans charming illustrations will make kids giggle. The vegetable/pet characters will stir a child's imagination and cause them to laugh out loud. Pugtato Finds a Thing would be great for children age 4-8. The rhyming text is spot on and easy to read aloud. And the ending is perfect for this little mystery. Preschool teachers could use this book to talk about different abilities and gifts and about friendship. I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.

Book Review: Love You More Than Anything by Anna Harber Freeman, illustrated by Jed Henry

If you enjoy reading aloud to your children, you'll love this little gem. At the end of the story ask them to fill in the blank, "love you more than..."

A family of chipmunks celebrates the love they share as they do life together. Anna Harber Freeman's delightful rhyming book is perfect to read to your little ones. As the family scampers to the park they repeat the phrase "Love you more than..." and fill in the blank with everything from ladybugs to chocolate cake. Jed Henry's charming illustrations reflect the joy and fun-filled day the family shares.
