I’ve been reading so many wonderful books for early readers! Makes me want to be back in a school library – totally would be asking for a budget increase and getting students and teachers to check out some of these books! Here are reviews of a few of the ones I’ve read recently –
- Noodleheads See the Future by Tedd Arnold, Martha Hamilton, and Mitch Weiss. I love a good noodlehead tale (think Amelia Bedelia). They are just plain silly and fun. The illustrations are super cute and the story is bound to get a giggle or two.

- Moby Shinobi: Ninja on the Farm by Luke Flowers. This was my first time reading a Moby Shinobi book, even though I have seen them on my Scholastic Book Fair carts and I THINK the series has been highlighted in the author video that comes with the fair in the past few years. Silly stories, fun illustrations, and the main character is a NINJA, so kids will like that.

- Ballet Cat: What’s Your Favorite Favorite? by Bob Shea. The Ballet Cat series just makes me happy. I always LOL at something this cat does and I love the voice of the characters. Bright and fun illustrations.

- Pip Sits by Mary Morgan. This is from a new to me series called I Like to Read. This series is great for those littles who are just learning to read. Lots of white space and few words on each page. Font is easy to read and the stories are short and easy to comprehend. In this one, little chicks think a little bear is their mama at first. Cute.
