Goodnight Sleep Tight What a Wonderful Flight

There is so much to like about this book (especially if you have a pilot in the family and are aircraft enthusiasts to begin with!)  Goodnight, Sleep Tight: What a Wonderful Flight contains just the right amount of information for young children.  There are only five varieties of aircrafts covered in the book and there is only a brief description of what they do. Goodnight, Sleep Tight: What a Wonderful Flight is a charming, rhyming picture book that introduces children to five different types of aircraft used in our society on a regular basis.  I recommend this book to children who are airplane enthusiasts, aged 3 to 8.  This book would make a great addition to a school or public library.

How Andrew Got His Spots

What is so beautiful about How Andrew Got His Spots is the mere simplicity of the story. The illustrations by Julie Sneeden are just lovely.  They are bright and colorful and do a great job of conveying the magic throughout the book. How Andrew Got His Spots is a charming and beautifully-illustrated picture book that teaches children to be patient and to believe in a bit of magic.  I recommend this lovely book to children ages 2.5 years to 6 years old who love books featuring animals.

The Secret Ramblings of Harriet Hughes

This is a really funny and cute book for 8-12 year old girls. It is written in the style of Diary of a Wimpy Kid but from a 12 year old girl’s perspective. The main character, Harriet, is very likable. She is a little dramatic when things embarrass her and she writes all about it in her diary. She has a quirky, slightly sarcastic sense of humor that had me laughing several times while reading the story and I loved the little hand drawn pictures that appear throughout the book. There are great friendships, wonderful family relationships, and of course boy drama, along with some character growth. I love that Harriet figures out that her initial thoughts about people and activities are sometimes wrong and that being open to trying new things can change your life.
