A magnetic boardbook with words in subject groups. Also, has interactive questions and a place to spell out words using provided magnetic letters. I like the variety of ways the book can be used to learn. Very good.
book 104: House Is a House for Me by Mary Ann Hoberman
A fun rhyming verse about all different kinds of houses. Lovely illustrations and subtle references to classic children's literature as well.
book 105: Wheels on the Bus Pop-Up Fun by Igloo Books Ltd.
The pop-ups are cute, but this is a pretty lame rhyme.
book 106: Great Kapok Tree by Lynne Cherry
Teaches a little about the ecological strata that live in the rain forest, but the story is awfully preachy and unrealistic (and I am a conservationist at heart and a zoology degree under my belt).
book 107: Read to Me by Judi Moreillon
Nice message and does its best to include every ethnic group, but pretty bland otherwise.
book 108: Big Sister, Little Sister by Marci Curtis
Not as good as the brother equivalent. Lacks the mischief and playfulness, I think.
book 109: On with the Show! by Joanne Barkan
A Disney Princess book featuring characters from Beauty and the Beast. Says it's about creativity. More about reconciliation of an argument. Kind of dull.
book 110: Cars, Volume 1 by Disney Pixar
Didn't see the movie, so can't compare plots. Has a few puzzles and lame jokes in back.
book 111: Cars, Volume 2: Fame in the Fast Lane by Disney Pixar
book 112: Cars, Volume 3: Home Sweet Home by Disney Pixar
book 113: Day by the Sea by Joan Solomon
British and late 70's/ early 80's photos. Otherwise, not super exciting.
