Stop you’re copying me!

If you’ve ever been around the younger set, I’m certain you’ve heard that expression at least once or twice–whether it’s siblings, friends, or frenemies, kids don’t like being copied. And, if somebody is doing everything you’re doing, and following along behind you, I’m certain it would get on your nerves too!

Blue and Red are friends. So much so that Blue likes everything about Red–and tries to be Red, in every possible way. Of course, Blue, being Blue, doesn’t have all of the attributes that make Red, Red–and can’t quite pull it off. This, ends up getting on Red’s nerves and forces a confrontation where Red tells Blue, in essence, to go be themself! The journey to self-discovery begins and Blue discovers what being Blue is all about–how Blue’s unique attributes can help Blue do things that Red would find impossible to do.

Obvious to adults reading the book, the learned lesson is that we all have strengths and weaknesses making up our own, unique, individuality–an important lesson to be learned at any age. Particularly important is the tale-end of the book, where once Blue learns that Blue can function independently of Red, Blue and Red start joining forces; and, creating new adventures together–Purple! [Get your mind out of the gutter, it’s a kid’s book!]

This is a lovely, funny, gentle read that is certain to spark discussion. The book can be read at many levels. I’m adjusting the target age to include those in Pre-Kindergarten as well.

Mole wants to bring the sky into her house, so she scoops up a bit of the sky in her hands and takes it home with her. Kids will understand her reasoning; that's the kind of thing so many kids try to do. (And, like Mole, are disappointed when it doesn't work.) But in the end, Mole's friends save the day.

Bright and colorful, Mole Catches the Sky is a sweet book that illustrates what friendship is all about.

Note: I received a digital copy of this book through NetGalley.… (mer)

This was a nice beginning but advanced reader. It says it’s a level 3 so it has “chapters” but it still frequently repeats, and has fewer words on the page than a beginning chapter book. The story is nothing special, but it works, and will do as intended.

A beautiful-to-look-at, heartwarming-to-read picture book about bad days, easy and accessible for kids to understand. Bear and his friend Smile are always together, until one day....they're not. Bear's friends try to help him find it and eventually, Bear finds Smile once again. Bad days happen--often for no reason--and sometimes doing your favorite things is hard. Bear and Smile remind us that bad days end and we will feel cheerful again eventually.
