- Catherine @ A Spirited Mind reviews a good one: Mrs. Piggle Wiggle. This fun book is a must-read, so go read Catherine’s review to find out why!
- Alice @ Supratentorial highlights several Steve Jenkins titles this week. If you’re looking for some great science-related picture books, this is the post for you.
- Janet @ Across the Page writes about a quartet of math-related picture books. Reading math picture books is something I’ve been trying to do more of in our homeschool, so I appreciate Janet’s reviews this week!
- Mary @ Homegrown Learners reviews a couple of titles we’ve enjoyed this year at the House of Hope: 26 Fairmount Avenue and Black Ships before Troy. Click over to read Mary’s great reviews!
- Jen @ Happy Little Homemaker reviews a trio of great bedtime stories, including one of our favorites–The Going to Bed Book by Sandra Boynton.
- Maggy @ Red Ted Art’s Blog reviews a title I’m hoping to get my hands on soon–Katje the Windmill Cat by Gretchen Woelfle. Of course, there’s also an art project involved.
- Diana @ Busy Homeschool Days reviews yet another title we can add to our ancient Greece booklist: Island of the Minotaur by Sheldon Oberman. I think my girls would really go for this one!
- Please, please, please don’t miss the video review of Where the Mountain Meets the Moon by Grace Lin, produced by Z-Dad and his kiddos at Bookie Woogie. It is FANTASTIC.
- Janelle @ Brimful Curiosities reviews a bilingual book, The Cazuela That the Farm Maiden Stirred by Samantha Vamos. This looks like a beautiful excuse to make some rice pudding (yum!) to me, and I love the art activity that Janelle paired with this story. Be sure to check out this post!
- Carrie @ Reading to Know reviews The Littles and the Lost Children by John Peterson. I enjoyed the cartoon The Littles when I was, er, little, so I’m guessing I’d enjoy sharing this series with my children.
- I also posted a review of a great picture book biography of Phillis Wheatley last week. If you’re looking for American history resources, check out this review!
James Rumford, author of Don’t Touch My Hat (one of my RAT picks this week) also left a comment! Check out his website for interesting information about this terrific author (who also wrote a book about ancient Egypt, although I didn’t realize it at the time that I wrote yesterday’s RAT post). I am always fascinated by authors’ and illustrators’ creative processes, and Rumford details his on his website.
If you are a Blogger blogger (ha!), I couldn’t leave a comment on your post yesterday. I read and appreciated every single RAT post, though!
Have a great weekend, everyone!
