What You’ll Love About This Book:Too cute! Me and my son both loved picture books and we found this really really cute.
“Together” is a delightful story of the ups and downs of having a best friend. Author introduces kids to two adorable dogs, big Mousse and little Nut, who become friends one rainy day. Soon, they are doing everything together, until they start to notice little differences. And when those differences become more pronounced, their friendship falls apart…until they learn a valuable life lesson about commitment and sticking it out. A great story about how despite your differences, you can still be best friends. I think this book does a great job showing kids that no matter how different their friends are, they can still find a common ground and become best friends like Mousse and Nut. Loved the message that we don’t have to do everything together in order to be best friends.It’s a worth buy.
Theme/Topic: This Books is about four children who needs some money to fix their clubhouse, so they decide to sell Lemonade.
What You’ll Love About This Book: This book was so cute and very easy to read. This book teaches a valuable lesson about money.
The children need money to build a new clubhouse and they decide selling lemonade is the best way to raise the funds. They sell lemonade for five days and keep track of their sales on a Bar Graph. The illustrations are amazingly detailed and add a little humor also to this educational story. The story helps readers understand how to read bar graphs and create them. Since this topic may be difficult for students to understand
This is a great book to teach economics as well! It teaches young kids can also earn money if they want to. This would be a great book to discuss needs and wants. If you want something you can find a way to earn the money to get it.
I found this book worth reading to develop Math and as well as life skills.
A note to parents is included in the back to offer tips for teaching and additional resources about bar graphs.
Theme/Topic: This is a story about Aditi who is go-getter and wants something very much.Her father sets challenges for her. Read to know how she does all….

We really like the name of the characters especially ‘Abhinaya Kutti’. Pictures are super cute. Aditi is a delight. So much thought has given to the story the mother’s progression shown very cutely. A good read for 5-8 year kids.
Theme/Topic:There is nothing worse than feeling ill, as Bear soon comes to learn.
What You’ll Love About This Book:
Last month my son was not keeping well for almost a week and he was sleeping almost entire day. He doesn’t want to play but surely want me to read aloud more…..he correlated his situation with this story so much as asked me to read this only many times in a day and what mumma can do so I read this again and again J
This is such a sweet story about what true friendship is about. This story about a bear who feels sick! His friends want him to come out and play, but he feels too unwell to go. His friends come over and comfort him as best they can. I love how much thought is put into the words on the pages. Such a cute way to show kids how to take care of someone who is sick.
Lots of rhyming words which is fun to read. The illustrations are done in acrylic paint. They are absolutely adorable and colorful. The facial expressions are well done. The pictures give you a warm and fuzzy feeling. This story is perfect for a read aloud during illness.
Theme/Topic: Five statues, each with a squat red fiend who lives inside.
What You’ll Love About This Book:This book is about sharing, cooperation, and appreciation of nature. The fiends are not scary. The best thing about this book is that it’s out of the ordinary topics, it talks about 5 little weird with ugly appearance, it talks about the importance of sharing and how even the greatest wonders of the world won’t be as wonderful if we don’t share them… it will make your kids appreciate nature and all its wonders, and how the sun the moon the ground the sea and the sky all blend together to give as this beautiful complete picture…truly it’s a good read! The artwork is superb.
We read this book few times but so far my son didn’t liked it much. Whenever I read this book he ends up asking many question who are fiends, are they real, where all I can find them and many more. So for me though this book is unique but not in our favorite list.
Theme/Topic: Shirley’s little sister, Doris, wants to be with Shirley EVERYWHERE!
What You’ll Love About This Book: This is such a cute book on sibling relationships. Shirley’s little sister, Doris, wants to be with her everywhere. It’s a cute sibling story how young kids behave with their elder brother or sister. They want to be with them all the time and this is not always a good thing. Can a bunk bed be the solution? Laugh out loud with the adorable Shirley and Doris in this funny story that will strike a chord with all little brothers and sisters. It’s not that great book but a cute and funny book for sure.
Theme/Topic: Poor little monkey! He’s lost his mum. Luckily butterfly is nearby to help him find her…
What You’ll Love About This Book: Beautiful book in typical Julia Donaldson style with fantastic illustrations.Best for all ages. This is an endearing story about a monkey who loses his Mum and is helped by a butterfly to try and find her. Throughout the book, other animals are introduced using describing what they look like. This allows the children to interact with the story and guess what the next animal may be. Monkey Puzzle is a charming jungle tale with the hallmark rhyming text of Julia Donaldson and lively illustrations of Axel Scheffler, creators of The Gruffalo. Very well written and illustrated. We really enjoyed reading this book.Must read for all kids till age 7.Happy Reading!!!
Theme/Topic: Little Critter needs a new skateboard and he learns from his dad that it takes money to get a new one….
What You’ll Love About This Book: This book is a good to read together as it will spark conversations about money, chores and costs of things. I thought this book would be a great way to introduce money and how saving money is important. It talks about that saving money is a good thing. The trip to the bank is probably out-of-date now (wish they could update it to show critter checking his balance on-line!). I thought it was pretty cool that Little Critter got to save up his money to open a bank account then had to work to save up more money to get the item he wanted. Those familiar with Mayer’s other books will find this one just as charming and the lesson about earning and saving for something that you want is a good one. . We love trying to find the mouse and spider that seems to follow the main character around, they’re always doing silly things. Fun engaging themes that any child can relate to, a great addition to any children’s library.
