Books for Young Readers

 If you wish to read a book that will have you and your children rolling on the floor, read “I Yam a Donkey” by Cece Bell. 
Poor Mr. Donkey needs a grammar lesson and a yam walking by tries and tries to oblige. As the story progresses so does the confusion on the part of Mr. Donkey. He simply does not understand.  He thinks if he gets his eyes checked, all will be clear.  (Not so.)



Having trouble getting along with your siblings or co-workers?
Read “Two Mice” by Sergio Ruzzier.  When two mice begin their adventure, all kinds of unexpected things happen.  Problem solving and working together for a common goal are some of the skills the two friends must develop.  It is a good lesson for us all.
