*The Little Ghost Who Could…*by Susan E. Barton*5-Stars

The Little Ghost Who Could

The Little Ghost Who Could is a beautifully illustrated book for children, ages 3 to 9. It’s a story about friendship.

Gobby is a friendly and kind ghost. Everyone loved him, except for Globby, the meanest ghost in town. Gobby didn’t like the way Globby bullied his friends. But, when Globby made his best-friend cry, Gobby knew that something had to be done. So, he came up with a brilliant idea.

I absolutely loved this book, especially the illustrations. Every picture is colorful, well-drawn and has just enough detail, to catch the eye. The Little Ghost Who Could is truly a quality children’s book and gets five shining stars from me.

*Clutter Land* by Denise McCabe* 5-Star Children’s Book

clutter land

This is a cute children’s book about a little boy named Joey who didn’t like to pick up his things when he was finished playing with them. After slipping on Joey’s toys, his Mam had decided that she’d had enough and grabbed her jar of magic dust. This magical dust would transform Joey’s room into Clutter Land.

Joey loved playing in Clutter Land, except for the fact that he and his new friends kept tripping over his toys and one another. So Joey decided to clean up his room and free up some space for his new Clutter Land friends to play.

I loved the colorful drawings in this book and the clever way that the author used to teach children the importance of cleaning up their toys.

**More Tails of a House Rabbit** by Linda Bartash-Dawley

more tails of a house rabbit

This is a cute children’s book told from a rabbit’s point of view. Hannah, the rabbit, is a mischievous bunny. In More Tails of a House Rabbit, Hannah tells her story.  She talks about her many adventures, her favorite hiding spots, foods and the crazy things humans do. I found the story well-written and quite witty. I would recommend this book to any adult looking for a humorous story to read to a child, or a young reader looking for a fun book to enjoy.

Crayons is a wonderfully drawn picture book for children. It is also an invaluable tool to teach them about diversity.

*Cool Kids Wear Glasses* 5-stars by Teddy O’Malley

cool kids wear glasses

Cool Kids Wear Glasses is a cute, insightful story, with a message.

Mandy is a pretty grammar school girl, who thinks that just because she’s considered the coolest kid in the third grade, that she should be a queen. And since she’s queen, Mandy assigned herself the task of listing who was cool in the school and who was not.

Mandy’s brother tried to tell her that she was being mean to her classmates. But Mandy wouldn’t hear of it. In her mind, she was doing the kids a favor, by letting them know who was cool and who wasn’t.

Anyone who wore glasses, braces or who was different in any way, was not allowed in Mandy’s cool kids club. Mandy’s whole life though, turned upside down, when she was the kid who was wearing the glasses.

This story is a fantastic learning tool for grammar school children.
Kids learn that it’s actually cool to stick up for someone else.
It’s cool to befriend kids who wear glasses, braces or who are different.
It’s okay to stand up to bullies and not let them push you around.

I found the story Cool Kids Wear Glasses, engaging, with well-drawn pictures, realistic characters, situations, and dialogue.

This is an excellent book for a young child to read or to be read to by an adult. Cool Kids Wear Glasses is a solid five-star read. I loved it!
