4. Chronicle Books Newest Titles

I got a Chronicle Books box - ALWAYS a good day!
And I wanted to share a few of the goodies with you!

How to Read a Story by Kate Messner
Simple, Step-by-step teaching kids how to read a book!  Fabulous, funny and yet right on their level.  The illustrations are light-hearted and fun as well.  Step 1 - Find a story, Step 2 - Find a reading buddy, Step 3 - Find a cozy reading spot - couldn't agree more!!

I Wish You More by Amy Krouse Rosenthal and Tom Lichtenheld
This is an author combo that time and time again writes and illustrates books that are endearing and make kids smile.  This is a simple story of what we wish for - either for our kids or for each other.  It is certainly not a story to read aloud in storytime, I don't think.  But one to cherish together, side-by-side, and talk about as you go.  It would also make a lovely coffee table book or gift for just the right friend.

Beach House by Deanna Caswell and illustrated by Amy June Bates
Here is a book that makes you feel sure you've been transported to the beach!  I love this - it's told in rhyme which is fun and different - the simplicity and flow of the words tied in with the amazing illustrations give the reader a beach experience all from the comfort of home.  I think this would be a fun read-aloud and one kids will explore all on their own again and again.


**I was sent preview copies of these books from the publisher for honest reviews of the titles.

8. Daredevil Duck

Here is a children's book that you will NOT want to miss!  This is a riot that sitting down and sharing with your little ones will not disappoint.

Daredevil Duck by Charlie Alder is nothing but fun - it follows the story of D.D. - Daredevil Duck - as he goes out into the world and is literally afraid of EVERYTHING!  He tries so hard to be brave - but his fears always seem to get the best of him.  The story is humorous and told in a fun way as the layout of the book leads to some half pages, some foldout, etc. and it all just lends to the lovability of the story!  You really must follow his sweet story as D.D. tries to find something that he can do that is BRAVE.

 **I was provided a copy of the book by the publisher for an honest review.

25. Sketch sprints

I've been having fun doing some sketch sprints this week using old fairy tales and fables as a starting point. It's been a great way to warm up and get loose as well as work on character and contrast.

Here are two posted on my Medium page:
