This is cute fantasy book by Audrey Penn and Illustrated by Barbara Leonard Gibson. I love this book and I think it would be a great add to any library where kids are involved. I read this book to my kids at home but I also read this book to my high school students. I think that this book helps to teach children that just because an adult shows affection to someone else doesn't mean they do not care about us. #ucflae3414f19
I love this picture book. My parents used to read it to me when I was a young kid all the time, and it was my favorite! It is a simple book that can help the kids learn to count, but it is also a good book to read to young children before bed. It counts backwards from 10 to 1 and the baby is getting one less kiss each time, but by the end (one) the baby falls asleep.
This was a picture book. It had a repetitive structure that made the same replies and questions happen until suddenly a turn was taken and as a result, the pout pout fish became happy again. Its illustrations kept me entertained and the watercolors added to the effect of under the sea. It also showed different moods that each fish had in an effective way to get a better sense of characterization.
