Kids’ Book Pick: Class Pet Squad: Journey to the Center of Town by Dan Yaccarino

Class Pet Squad: Journey to the Center of Town by Dan Yaccarino is my children’s book pick for the month. It is fun, goofy, and full of adventure. This book is great for kids who have enjoyed Traction Man meets Turbodog, Mutant rat attack!, Captain Underpants, Gilbert Goldfish Wants a Pet, and Squish. What I loved about this book was that it was a chapter book with lots of colorful images. Each page includes silly drawings that help move the story forward. It is a great book for visual learners and kids who are looking to develop literacy and reading comprehension skills.

Kids’ Book Pick: A Pizza the Size of the Sun by Jack Prelutsky

Do not approach an emu,

The bird does not esteem you.

It wields a quick and wicked kick

That’s guaranteed to cream you.

– Jack Prelutsky

A Pizza the Size of the Sun by Jack Prelutsky is my children’s book pick for April. This book is a wonderful introduction to the world of poetry. It is fun, lighthearted, and a truly magical read. It was first published in 1996, but continues to be just as great a read today. It is a book for kids who have enjoyed Prelutsky’s  Be Glad your Nose is on your Face and Other Poems and Something BIG Has Been Here, Janeczko and Raschka’s A Poke in the I, and Silverstein’s Where the Sidewalk Ends.
