Book Reviews

In my mail, I received books to review. Here are some of those books.
A picture book called DINO-HOCKEY by Lisa Wheeler and Illustrated by Barry Gott, is a funny and entertaining. It is published by Carolrhoda Books, Inc. Written in rhyming couplets, the book would appeal to Dinosaur and hockey fans.It begins, "The game begins at half past six, when dinos grab their hockey sticks. They plan to win on icy floors--MEAT-EATERS vs. VEGGIESAURS!" The illustrations are clear and well defined. I think this picture book deserves 3 books out of 5 book rating. (Which means its a good read)
Christmas Is Coming is another picture book by Anne Bowen and illustrated by Tomek Bogacki that I found entertaining especially with Christmas coming soon. A little bit on the wordy side but the meaning is all there. Anna, a young girl, tells her new brother about the signs of Christmas approaching. I liked this page: "You know Christmas is coming
when you see lights
like ribbons of stars shining in the dark--
Anna discovers that the best present of all is...well you'll have to check out the book to find that out.
I'll be back with more reviews next time.
