RhyPiBoMo Week 4

Books I read the week of April 25-29:

LEAPS AND BOUNCE by Susan Hood and Matthew Cordell. A story filled with fun, humor and rhyme with a little science on the side. This is basically a lesson in how frogs grow from tadpoles into frogs. It's told as an adventure story with lyrical language and humorous, cartoony illustrations and several open-the-flap pages. And it uses a few of my favorite words: rumpus, hullaballo and shenanigans! It has amphibians rhyming with shenanigans - not a perfect rhyme, but it's so fun, it works.

TINY RABBIT'S BIG WISH by Magarita Engle and David Walker.

MAMMOTHS ON THE MOVE by Lisa Wheeler and Kurt Cyrus.

WATCH YOUR TONGUE, CECILY BEASLEY by Lane Fredrickson and Jon Davis.

NINJA RED RIDING HOOD by Corey Rosen Schwartz and Dan Santat.

I AM COW, HEAR ME MOO! by Jill Esbaum and Gus Gordon.

ROOM ON THE BROOM by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler.

TYRANNOSAURUS DRIP by Julia Donaldson and David Roberts.

CATS NIGHT OUT by Caroline Stutson and John Klassen.

BOO-LA-LA WITCH SPA by Samantha Berger and Isabel Roxas.
