book 103-113: kidlit continued

book 103:  Let's Learn Our First Words by St. Martin's Press

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.
