5. Ann Jonas, Award Winning Children's Book Creator Dies

Ann Jonas, Award-Winning Children’s Book Creator, Dies at 81


Jonas once said of her work, “I’ve been trying to explore other ways of stretching children’s imaginations. I find myself drawn more and more often to designing books that involve some sort of visual play. It seems like a wonderful opportunity to encourage children to look at familiar things in different ways while offering the appeal of a game or a puzzle.”

12. A Few Kindergarten Laughs for Snack Time for Confetti

I was very excited to get this review copy from Tiger Tales Books. I feel in love with another title (Roly-Poly-Egg) from author, Kali Stileman a few years back. Today, I had a few extra minutes with a Kindergarten class and I tired out Snack Time for Confetti. Confetti, was born at the end of Roly-Poly-Egg. However, this story is totally different and once again is delightful. This story is about a young bird name Confetti who is hungry. All her animal friends offer her different foods that they like but she does not like any of them. Each time she does not like a food she says, "Yuck". Kindergartens caught on to this phrase and were happy to keep repeating it. Finally her mother comes to the rescue with her favorite foods. The illustrations were what I found so charming about Roly-Poly-Egg and once again they are the hightlight of Snack Time for Confetti. Confetti was easily drawn by a classroom of kindergarden students. This book not only fits the classroom environment, but offers a lovely connection for a mother/child moment for Mother's Day. Check out my orignal post for Roly Poly Egg. http://missolibrary.blogspot.com/2011/03/roly-poly-egg.html

19. THE RETIRED KID

The Retired Kid by Jon Agee is a book I discovered a few years back.  I just got a renewed interest in this title because I received it as a gift for the holidays.  This a perfect read-aloud for the New Year.   Eight year old, Brian, decides he needs a break from life and takes off to the Happy Sunset Retirement Community in Florida. At first he is happy with all the things retirement has to offer.  But, he soon realizes it also comes with things that just don't relate to him.   After three weeks he decides that retirement is just not for him.   He misses the good old days.  Brian is happy to return home and be a kid, even if it is hard work.  Life is about challenges and they are different at all ages!


Happy New Year to all my readers!   Hope 2012 is a great year!
