Tintin (7 years old)
Amazing Greek Myths of Wonder and Blunders
Author/illustrator: Mike Townsend
A humorous graphic novel retelling of several Greek myths, this book has encouraged Tintin to seek out other books about Greek mythology. He loved this book so much that he read it three times this week.
Laughs, Hoots & Giggles
Author/illustrators: Joseph Rosenbloom/Joyce Behr, Sanford Hoffman
With over 400 pages of jokes and riddles, this is one of the better joke books Tintin's gotten from the school library. He sat down immediately after school and read the first couple of chapters.
Johnny Boo (4 years old)
Knuffle Bunny; Knuffle Bunny Too
Author/illustrator: Mo Willems
I'm sure everyone with a preschooler has heard of these books about a girl and her bunny, and this isn't the first time Johnny Boo's gotten them out of the library. I know a book's a hit with Johnny Boo if he makes us act it out every night for a week. We are impatiently awaiting the September 28th arrival of Knuffle Bunny Free (ex: Mommy, when is Knuffle Bunny Free coming out? In a few weeks... You mean tomorrow? No, in a few weeks... Oh, you mean the day after tomorrow? Etc.).
Poppleton and Friends
Author/illustrator: Cynthia Rylant/Mark Teague
This book, about a pig and, of course, his friends, contains three short stories, of which "Grapefruit" is Johnny Boo's favorite (although he loves the others too). Johnny Boo begged me to buy a grapefruit yesterday so that he could see whether his lips would turn outside-in. They didn't.
