books 66 through 71: picture books

I convinced my niece, as a part of the "let's reclaim my mother's condo from a hoarder's clutter" project, to go through her books and select ones that she has out-grown to be donated to the library "so other kids can have a chance to read them and she can make room for new books at her reading level".  I'm a bit OCD, so I have been reading them prior to passing them onto my mom for final approval.

book 66:  Santa's Toy Shop by Michelle Andrews

This is a very short pop-up Christmas book.  The few pages that it has are colorful, but that is about all it has going for it.

book 67  Roar of a Snore by Marsha Diane Arnold

This picture book is quite adorable and has the kind of rhyme and repetition that makes it fun to read out loud.  A family tracks down the source of a loud snore in the middle of the night...

book 68:  Draw Me a Star by Eric Carle

This picture book was a re-read for me.  I think it was originally on a banned-book list, although I can't imagine why.  The story was okay, but nothing inspiring.  The page at the end where the author told the story behind the story was more interesting.

book 69:  Momma, Will You? by Dori Chaconas

book 70:  Job Site by Nathan Clement

This could be a decent picture book for a child who likes looking at big vehicles (not so much my princess and animal-loving niece).  I liked that it paired the name of the vehicle and its job with illustrations.  Now I know the difference between a bull dozer and an excavator.

book 71:  Big Brother, Little Brother by Marci Curtis

This book used photography of actual siblings, which was amusing, but I think it would probably be more amusing to the adult than the kid.
