Little Blue Truck Board Book by Alice Schertle
Little Blue Truck Board Book by Alice Schertle
5.0 out of 5 stars Rollicking!, July 3 2014
A rollicking ride! Great rhythm and rhyme, fast paced and exciting, with a great message of teamwork thrown in! Just a great book for wee folk!
Adventures with Barefoot Critters by Teagan White
While the illustrations are dear, I find them a little complex and small in order to develop an instant connection with them. The rhymes are a little problematic for me too, as they don't scan perfectly. A cute book, but I was a little underwhelmed...
Are You There God?  It's Me, Margaret by Judy Blume
My cousin loaned this book to me at 10 or 11, and honestly, I had hugely mixed feelings about it then, and as an adult I still do. While it may have been revolutionary at the time, it sends a message that girls are inherently not ok with maturing, that they compete for their bodies to grow breasts and get their periods, that fitting in with the right crowd is essential - and other negative stereotypes we'd be well to dispel. The only way this book is useful, imho, is to read it with your daughter and point out the nonsense in it.
