I received a sample for this review/feature. Opinions expressed are my own.
Puddle Jumpers and There Was an Old Lady Who Gobbled a Skink are two new books that are adorable, cute and fun to read for kids in the 3 to 6 age range. Add in their awesome illustrations and these are great additions to any bookshelf!
It’s a rainy day in the month of May and Sam spots a rainbow, and then a puddle. A perfect spring puddle. His mother warns, ?No! No jumping in puddles! You must keep clean today!? but Sam can?t stop himself from testing the water with his galoshes. And then the puddle invites him to play. The puddle whispers, ?Jump, Puddle Jumper, jump!? and with that very first jump, Sam is off on an adventure of the imagination. He?ll be a frog in a pond, with a hat and some spots and a magic wand. He?ll be a crocodile with pink polka dots and teeth like blades, and a polar bear with purple polar hair. He’s going to jump, leap, dance, plunge, swim, and jump again. Sam is having so much fun in his puddle that even Mom can?t resist. With a leap and a thwump, she’s jumping too, cheering, ?Jump, Puddle Jumper, jump!?
There was an old lady who gobbled a skink. And a worm and a pail and a line and an oar and much more in this hilarious book about a crazy fisherwoman who swallows all the essentials for a successful fishing trip. With the ever looming threat of ?perhaps she?ll sink,? readers will hold their breath in anticipation as she gobbles her way through the tackle box and then the boat! With an already impressively full stomach, she reaches for just one last bite . . . but to find out how the story ends, you have to read the book!
Most little kids love the little things in life like jumping in a good puddle. Sam wanted nothing more than to enjoy jumping in the puddle he comes across but mother told him to stay clean. He can’t resist and soon his imagination takes him on journeys to puddles everywhere. Some puddles are too irresistible! I also find that little ones can’t resist laughing when reading about someone swallowing something funny! This old lady gobbles up a skink! Things progress from there as she swallows more things to catch the thing before it! You will start reading faster and faster as you find the last item she swallows! A story for sure that will never get old! Happy Reading!
