|BEWARE THE TOOTING DONKEY|
DI: I will absolutely do that! Let's all take a minute to breathe and move on to something a little more serious! This is a Serious Book by Jodie Parachini and illustrated by Daniel Rieley (Greenwillow, 10/2016) is supposed to be serious, but with a cast of crazy animal characters it just can't live up to its name. While the group of animals do zanier and zanier things that narrator of the story is letting them know that they need to stop since this is a very serious book. Even though the narrator tries and tries to persuade them they just won't listen. The reader will be delightful by the antics of the animals. I know I may have lost it on a page that reads, "And absolutely no tooting"
|Don't you want to hug the sloth too?|
(9/2016). Here a sloth takes center stage and as he starts to move animals gather around to see just what he will do! Page after page turns to see the sloth's arms moving in teeny tiny increments. Most of the animals get bored except one: his best friend red panda! And what is the best thing in the world you might ask? SPOILER ALERT: It's giving your best friend a hug.
