Snow Day Review Blitz! I'm trying to finish posting the reviews I wrote in 2014.
Froodle, by Antoinette Portis, is a delightfully silly, jazzy picture book that will delight kids who know what birds really say. Froodle Sproodle!
Rupert Can Dance, by Jules Feiffer, is an exuberant story of a cat with a secret.
The Promise, by Nicola Davies, illustrated by Laura Carlin, is a parable about planting trees, and how it brings growth, life, and blessing.
100 Bears, by Magali Bardos, a European import, is a somewhat bizarre and surprising counting book that goes all the way up to 100.
A Walk in Paris, by Salvatore Rubbino, is a wonderful child's-eye view of Paris, as a little girl accompanies her grandfather on a walk through the City of Lights.
Viva Frida, by Yuyi Morales, with photographs by Tim O'Meara, is a highly symbolic and beautiful celebration of Frida Kahlo's life and art.
