We haven't had as much library time this past month. But, we've managed to find some new one's that we really liked.
K's Books (Age 5):
Author: Carmela LaVigna Coyle
We picked this one up because K loves the movie The Princess and the Frog. It was really cute with colorful illustrations. I liked the story the best. I think it did a great job of demonstrating that every little girl is a princess at heart. And it turns out there are a couple more book by the same author that follow this theme.

We really enjoyed this one. I thought it had some really good points on what Thanksgiving means and it's traditions. It's religious and points to thanking God for what we've been given. For this reason, I know it's not for everybody. But, for what we believe, it had some valuable lessons that I thought were geared well to K's age group.
B's Books (Age 2 1/2):
Author: Lisa Desimini
Wow! This one was fantastic. It had really bright and colorful pictures. And it did such a great job of going through the season. B really loved it. I think she would have liked it more if it was in a board book, or a smaller edition. The book was big and hard for her to pack around.
Author: Claire Freedman
This is one of B's go to animal books. She also particularly likes books that talk about going to bed. The story is simple, and the animals are cute. There's one page that bothers me because it doesn't rhyme like the rest of the story. But, B loves this one, and it was an impulse buy at the library book fair!
