Be Careful, Barney!

My 2 year old and I really enjoyed this book. Little Barney gets in and out of trouble but learns a good lesson in the end. The illustrations in this story were adorable. Hats off to Ms Barnard for a job well done! I was happy to win this from Goodreads giveaways!

Hurry Home, Harriet!

I really enjoyed Hurry Home, Harriet. This book is a sweet book about a rabbit that gives her time to her friends and lends a helpful hand whenever she can. She thinks everyone has forgotten her birthday, but she doesn’t know how much of an impact she has made on them. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has a little one. The art style is fantastic!

Squirrel’s Busy Day

Lois loved this book. Now she finally understands why the squirrels at grandpas house maddeningly gather acorns before the snow comes. Was very fun to read and the ideas at the back of the book are great for educating kids about what animals do to prepare for the winter. Also the emphasis on team work was awesome.
