Great Children Books This Spring

The Children's Book Review

A sure sign of the glory of spring is all the colorful, creative, carefully crafted children’s books that are published. This year is no exception. There is a bountiful amount to read, to savor, and to collect. The Penguin Group leads the way with a bevy of beauties.

“Ladybug Girl and the Bug Squad” by David Soman and Jacky Davis ($16.99, ages 3-5) gives the spotlight to Lulu in words and pictures as she get set for the Bug Squad to appear for a play date. Winning prose and art work that sings.

“Madeline at the White House” by John Bemelmans Marciano ($17.99, ages 3-5) is pure fantasy and pure enjoyment for little readers or those who read to them focusing as it does on Madeline’s midnight sightseeing tour on a carpet of cherry blossoms.

“The Loopy Coop Hens” by Janet Morgan Stoeke ($16.99, ages 3-5) is a hilarious tale of three hens. Punchy, pointed, poignant in a way, this is a charming book.

“Happy Easter, Peter (a pull out the tab book) by Beatrix Potter ($7.99, ages 3-5) is interactive and just wonderful. Peter Rabbit’s agenda is the delivering of colorful Easter eggs to friends.

“The Pretty Pretty Bunny” by David Horowitz  ($12.99, ages 3-5) focuses on Narcissa whose claim is that of the best looking bunny. A book with a story with a moral about what beauty is all about. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

“Suki, the Very Loud Bunny” by Carmela and Steven D’Amico ($16.99, ages 3-5) is all about a highly adventurous bunny. She gets into big trouble in many ways because of her big voice. A BEAUTIFUL BOOK
