Construction site on Christmas Night

By Sherri Duskey Rinker and AG Ford

Book Source: Owned

Book Status: Available

Reviewer: Lil Brother

This is the start of the Lil Brother take over. And I am in charge, I am not annoying. I am amazing.

I was very happy to see this book at the school book fair. I like all the Construction Site books. I love Construction site stuff. You should see my pajamas right now.

In this story the trucks are getting ready for bed on Christmas night. They each get a present which is a new piece of construction equipment. You also find out what they have been building all along. It is a new firehouse. There are new fire trucks in this book.

I like the rhyming of this book. I like it is the same trucks from the other books. I like you have watched the construction site grow in the books.

I recommend this book to everyone who like construction trucks.

Nuts to You

By Lynne Rae Perkins

Book Source: Library Family Read Along

Book Status: Owned

Book Reviewer: Lil Bro

In this book, a squirrel is picked up by a hawk and dropped far from his home. He has to find his way home. Two of his friends find him. There are humans cutting down the trees for a power line. The squirrels have to get to their family get them to move.

I liked the friendship in the story. Some of the squirrels have funny names like TsTs which were fun to say. I liked reading a chapter a night with my grownups. Some nights we read more so we finished early!

I like reading with my grownups. It is fun.

Reviewed by Lil Bro

This book is about a Porcupine being helpful. She wants to make a pie. While she was out collecting her berries, she saw her friends. Each friend needed a supply for their party treat. She shared her supplies with them. Then she realized she was missing her berries. Her friends helped her out!

The story is about animals having a party. They are helpful to each other. If you share, people will share with you.

Kids should read this. There is even a pie recipe in the book!

Building Blocks

CD by Tim Kubart

Music source: Tim provided to me

Music Status: Out September 28th

Review by Coopbart (Lil’ Brother)

A perk of being Tim Kubart’s biggest fan is getting to listen to his new cd early! I have had it for a while. You would be jealous if you knew how long I have had it.

My favorite song is “Going Up” which is about construction sites. I also like “Field Trip”, “Oopsie Do” and what I call the mommy song (Day One). I can’t wait to play “Birthday” on my birthday.

If you liked “HOME”, you will play this one just as much. (I wore out my “HOME” cd)

You can sing and dance to all the songs. I just keep listening to the songs. I am not sick of it yet. Oh and I created a dance for “Going Up” that I need to teach Tim and Alex!

My recommendation is buy lots of copies of “Building Blocks” and see Tim in concert a hundred times. I also recommend dressing as him just as many times.

Ps I made it in the video for “Day One“!

Besties!

Double Book Review: Volcanoes and Dinosaurs

Volcanoes by Arianna Soldati

Dinosaurs by Lela Nargi and Steve Brusatte

Book Source: Provided by Masters Media in exchange for review

Little Brother and Bridget review

These books are by National Geographic Kids. They have facts from actual paleontologist and volcanists. They share information on dinosaurs, why a dig is like and how dinosaurs lived. The volcano book tells the science behind Volcanoes, the different lavas and how you study them. It was very fun to read.

These would be good additions to a science classroom or for a kid interested in dinosaurs or volcanoes. They would learn a lot and could read the books multiple times.

Lunch Lady and the Schoolwide Scuffle

By Jarrett J Krosczka

Book Source: borrowed from library

Book Status: published

Review by Lil Brother

In this book, the Lunch Lady got fired but she comes back again because the superintendent was mean. She was going to destroy the moon. She had made school bad for kids. The kids get Lunch Lady to come help them save their school.

I liked that it was a comic book. I read this all by myself and I am just starting to read by myself. I liked that they had superhero stuff. The food weapons were funny.

I recommend this to my cousins and other kids trying to read.

Eppie the Elephant (who was allergic to peanuts)

Written by Livingstone Cruise

Illustrated by Steve Brown

This is Little Brother and I am doing this review because I wanted book mail. Just like Bridget, I have food allergies but I am not peanut allergic. We were sent this book to review because we are kids!

Eppie is an elephant excited for her first day of school. She is also allergic to peanuts and is worried about how the other kids will act. I worried about how kids would react to mine. They think it is weird I don’t eat pizza or ice cream at school.

Eppie makes friends but at lunch, her friends can’t sit with her because they have peanuts. Eppie is sad. The next day, her friends sit with her because they brought safe lunches.

This book helps kids learn about food allergies and being a friend to a kid with allergies. It is nice to see the friends change their lunches so they can sit by Eppie.

I recommend this to kids going back to school, especially if they are at a no nut school.
