My First Babymouse

Published March 21, 2016 by neverwearmatchingsox

If I told the kids at school that I hadn’t read a Babymouse book yet, they may disown me.  Maybe this will make it up to them….and once they find out that a picture book is coming out, they will be happy.  I loved the illustrations and the story and this will make a fun addition to the holiday books!





Chick n Pug books by Jennifer Sattler

Published February 19, 2016 by neverwearmatchingsox

Chick has read The Adventures of Wonder Pug 127 times!!!!  It is safe to say that it is Chick’s favorite book.  But life in the chicken coop isn’t all it’s cracked up to be  (haha) so Chick sets off to find some adventure when he comes across a real live wonder pug.  Chick swoons as he watches Pug sleep but will Pug ever wake up and have adventures with Chick????  Great illustrations, great story and it is part of a series!




It’s Christmas time and Chick wants to learn all about Santa and his elves.  Another fun book by Jennifer Sattler with great illustrations and a sweet story!  Check out her website and see all the other great books she has written.




Chick and Pug are at it again. This time, their squeaky hamburger toy is missing! Oh now, what are they going to do!!!!

Monster Needs A Party and more monsters by Paul Czajak

Published September 20, 2015 by neverwearmatchingsox

I have already reviewed Monster Needs a Costume but Monster Needs a Party and Monster Needs Your Vote by Paul Czajak are recently published so I may as well do those both together.  I love these monster books.  Told in rhyming text and great illustrations, these are so much fun to read at storytime and anytime I show these to kids at school, they are immediately checked out.  Fun for all to be had!


Mish Mash…or catching up on my story time shelf.

I think that my co-workers dread that time of the week when I’m furiously putting books on hold…but how am I to know if I like them or not without reading them???  Here are a few that were just screaming my name:

6137182   A book about all the things a tree does. Told in rhyming text, this is the kind of story that could be the start of an entire unit about trees, or just a read to your little one while snuggling kind of book.


421063I stumbled up Gris Grimly, the illustrator of this book, somewhere and decided to read everything that my library owned. This book, told in rhyming text, is a mix of Series of Unfortunate Events, Nightmare before Christmas and Coraline…the illustrations were fabulous. The rhyming text was a little off kilter for me, but if I was to read this at storytime I think I could make it work.

15947585  So this is the kind of book that makes complete sense to me as I am always making up lyrics to songs I know because I can’t remember the tune or song that it is supposed to be. I love the illustrations, and winter is my 2nd favorite season. This book reminds me of watching all the Christmas specials when I was a kid.

2137373   A “song book” for those ghastly monsters on a camp out. Written to the tunes of some of our childhood favorites, this book will sure delight even the grumpiest of ghouls!

The Visit by Mark Kimball Moulton

Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for this ARC.  I am in love with this book.  It took me right back to being a kid, standing around my grandmother’s tree and wondering what was underneath.  Told with beautiful illustrations and rhyming text, this is surely to be a new must own Holiday book
