Bu kitabı ilk kez, geçen yıl ki Goodreads Okuyucu Seçimleri’nde kazanan listesinde görmüştüm. Bookdepository’com’da sepetimde bekleyip duruyordu. Son seyahatimdeki İngilizce kitap ganimetlerimden birisi olarak kitaplığımda yer buldu. Ben, “Franklin’in Uçan Kitaplığı’nı” alana kadar “Franklin ve Luna Ay’a gidiyor” da çıkmış 🤩 Şimdi gördüm. Evet, kitapta bence tatlı ama herkesin korkacağı cinsten bir kitap düşkünü ejderha ile kitap okumayı çok seven Luna’nın dostluğu, ve göklere uçurdukları bir kitaplıktan bahsediliyor. Kitabı okumak için youtube’daki şu linki : https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=5qaSUeVFpzI, Türkiye’den almak içinse happyshop.com.tr ‘yi öneririm. 🧡 Yaşasın kipatlığı olan ejderhalar! 🐉

APESAR DE TUDO, de Dipacho (Companhia das Letrinhas), publicado mediante acordo com Pipa Agência de Conteúdos Infantojuvenis

Vocês já conhecem esse livro sensacional? 
Resenha do Blog da Letrinhas: "Dois pinguins que se conhecem, de repente se separam, resistem e persistem, enfrentam conflitos entre si e com o ambiente que os cerca. As histórias de amor são cheias de desafios, para humanos, para pinguins.

Essa poderia ser uma das leituras de Apesar de tudo, livro do colombiano Dipacho que tem seu enredo marcado pela simplicidade dos traços e das cores. Com poucos elementos, o autor põe em xeque questões caras à humanidade – o amor, o encontro e o desencontro com o outro. O livro acaba de ser lançado no Brasil pela Companhia das Letrinhas.

Apesar de tudo foi gestado em uma viagem de mais de dois anos. Foi nesse período que o ilustrador apreendeu experiências sobre amor e distâncias – de parentes, de pessoas pelas quais se apaixonou no meio do caminho. Associou a um assunto que aflige a todos, o aquecimento global, representando num amarelo que por vezes é assustador." #literaturainfantil #livrosilustrados #librosilustrados #childrensliterature #childrensbooks #picturebooks #dipacho #companhiadasletras #pipaagencia #apesardetudo

The Littlest Bear loves playing in the snow, but he longs for a friend. One night, when he cannot sleep, he goes for a wander and tumbles down a snow hill. As the Little Bookworms predicted, when he reaches the bottom, he comes face to face with a wolf.
.
Unlike the terrifying wolves that the Littlest Bear’s Mum has warned him about - wolves that catch bears - this little wolf turns out to also be lost and helpless. What’s more, the Littlest Wolf is afraid of bears!
.
Can the Littlest Bear and the Littlest Wolf overcome their preconceptions and become friends?

"Moira's Birthday" is one of my all time favorite Robert Munsch books. See, Moira gets so excited about her upcoming birthday party, she invites all the kids in her school. The problem is she neglects to tell her parents how many kids she has invited, opps. On the day of her party, Moira must think fast to ensure her guests are fed. This leads her to order 200 cakes and 200 pizzas to save the day.I love how this humorous tale connects to big numbers. Whether you are introducing students to large numbers, multiplication or fractions, this book can be used to create laughter, excitement, and intrigue around mathematics concepts. #mathchat #kidslit #annickpress #bookstagram #math #childrensliterature #elementaryteacher #elemschool

Welcome to DAY 11 of Mr. Dog’s 2018 Advent Calendar, in which Mr. Rabbit tells the origin story of Easter. He explains the whole colored-egg debacle, and how his people became so unfairly mixed up in Mr. Man's mess.
🎄
For this year’s calendar, we’re sharing the backstory of Mr. Dog and his friends. We’ve chosen 24 of our favorite stories from Albert Bigelow Paine’s Hollow Tree series, and each day we’ll feature one by sharing the original engraved illustrations (by J.M. Conde) here. We hope you’ll also pop over to the Mr. Dog Podcast (link in our profile) where you can listen to the day’s story read by Henry Cordes.

I’ve so been looking forward to setting up our Christmas book nook, but was waiting on receiving the last of my book order from Hannah’s school. So here it is. Now if it would only snow or just be cold here, the feeling of winter would be complete. #childrensliterature #ourbooknook #shareyourmonthlybooknook #letitsnowplease

🎉Kazoo Book Club🎉
Please Bring Balloons, by Lindsay Ward.
When Emma finds the note tucked into the carousel polar bear’s saddle, asking for balloons, she doesn’t think twice. Her willingness to jump into the unknown flies them both out of the city to the North Pole, for the Polar Bear Rumpus! 
Charmingly illustrated, this is a story about that kind of pure belief and joy that children possess. You know what I’m talking about—the kind that’s so free of cynicism and self-doubt you want to bottle it up so you can sprinkle it on them in their sleep when they turn 13. 
And it has one of the sweetest endings I’ve ever read. 
A non-holiday themed winter read, this is one that can be read all year long. 🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉/5

"Οι πλούσιες ώρες του Ζακομινούς Γκενσμπορό"
Rebecca Dautremer 
Εκδόσεις Μεταίχμιο @metaixmio .
Ξεφυλλίζοντας το βιβλίο παρακολουθούμε το μεγάλωμα του Ζακομινούς, του μικρου λαγού με το "τρελοπόδαρο"  και την ξύλινη πατερίτσα ,  από την πρώτη ως την τελευταία του μερα.
.
Θέμα του βιβλίου τα πάντα, η ζωή η ίδια και ότι περιλαμβάνει.
. 
Ηλικία ;  η συγγραφεας λέει για όλες τις ηλικίες. Εγώ θα έλεγα για μεγαλύτερα παιδιά και σίγουρα για μεγάλους. Το κειμενο βρίθει δυσκολων συμβολισμών και σε σημεια ειναι αρκετά "σκοτεινο" για μικρότερα παιδιά.
.
Για την εικονογράφηση απλά δεν υπάρχουν λόγια. .

THE BELLY OF THE BEAST // iiiii’m back. not that i’ve been away actually, but today i completed #CloudAtlas (which i did enjoy) which marks the last of my assigned reads before christmas. so now i finally get to read whatever i want to read and i started it off with book eight and nine of #ASeriesOfUnfortunateEvents by #LemonySnicket that i ordered a while back and only got to just now.
//
i am still enjoying the series immensely - but i’m getting frustrated. the baudelaire children are always so close to at least a couple of answers and then something goes horribly wrong and everything goes downhill. which is the point of the series, after all. but i do hope at least some things will turn out well. i still have the four remaining books to order, and i am very excited to get to them in the new year. i truly wish i had read the series as a child.
i mean, apparently i turned out morbid anyways, but it would have been a much smoother kickstart to my morbidity 🖤 - one might call me #theprinceofdarkness ( i totally ripped this off the most recent @myfavoritemurder episode i listened to - 75, if you’re wondering - which was so good !)
//
enough of sidebaring (is that a word?): do any of you have a children’s book you read as an adult for the first time (yikes, i’m not down with the idea of me being a grown-up) that you wish you’d read as a child ? for me that’s #ASeriesOfUnfortunateEvents (obviously) and #AnneofGreenGables which i simply adored when i read it last year.

Give a gift that will last a lifetime! 🎁

The Good Guys: 50 Heroes Who Changed the World with Kindness: A life-changing book that shows kids it's cool to be kind. .
.
A gloriously illustrated celebration of heroes who have changed the world with kindness and compassion, from David Attenborough to Nelson Mandela, Oskar Schindler to Usain Bolt.
.
.
What if we celebrated boys for their kindness as well their strength? For their generosity as well as their success? For their loyal friendship as well as their charm? 
The Good Guys introduces us to 50 heroes who have showed that changing the world doesn't require a sword or a corporate jet. Readers will find stories of extraordinary men including Muhammad Ali, Professor Green, Patrick Stewart and Lionel Messi, as well as unsung heroes such as James Harrison, who has spent fifty years donating his rare blood to save millions of babies.
There's even a section celebrating ten boys who didn't let their young age stop them from helping others, such as Matthew Kaplan, who responded to his brother's bullies by setting up an anti-bullying programme for schools. The Good Guys celebrates the feats of heroes and everyday men, and will show kids that it really is cool to be kind.

Storytime. So I’ve always said “A Little Princess was my favorite book as a child.” Well it turns out the copy I read growing up was an adaptation! Not the original! So I’ve been reading the full version recently!
.
.
.
This story is so inspiring! If you haven’t read it or even seen the movie please do! Everyone is a princess!

Which book inspires you?

Grey Rabbit had some sewing to do. She sat in the rocking chair making new white collars and cuffs for herself, and mending her torn apron... Who else wants to live in Little Grey Rabbit's world?

It's a bit unusual for me to review a book that I didn't love, mostly because I have learned to abandon books that are not at least 3 star reads for me. Brandi @lollipopsandlyrics hosted a buddy read of Emily of New Moon last month and I just finished it last night. I have a wildly unpopular opinion of this book according to the ratings on @goodreads, so I wanted to make sure to share my thoughts with Bookstagram.

First, Emily shares many similarities to Anne of Green Gables, both are orphans raised by elderly women, both have a best friend and big imaginations, and both of their stories are told through the little, everyday details of life. There were many quotable lines that I appreciated, and hints of the charm I love in the Anne series.

This book never grabbed me and drew me in to the characters or the story. It is inevitable to compare Emily to Anne, and I found myself always wishing Anne was in the situations because I knew what she would do, while I never felt like I understood Emily. Much of this book is told through the letters that Emily writes. I loved the concept here, especially because writing was therapeutic for Emily, helping her to process so many hard things. But I did not enjoy the execution of these rambling letters. I think it's interesting that my least favorite of the Anne books is Anne of Windy Poplars, and much of that plot is comprised of letters.

The ending of this book brings so many plot points together, but I found the conclusion to be a little too neat and tidy and very abrupt. I think I wouldn't have minded this as a child reader, but as an adult I did not find it satisfying.

I know Emily has lots of supporters, so I would love to hear from you! Tell me what you love about this book. I hope that I have been delicate with this fan favorite, and I am glad that I saw it through to the end.

Huggie & Stick 🐰🌿 are a fantastic set of characters and certainly worthy of #booksharetuesday. Added bonus, this book is written by Drew Daywalt - the author of The Day the Crayons Quit.
.
.
Huge and Stick have very different personalities and perspectives on what happens in life.  Read about their adventures from both points of view.  Perfect for:
🐰Comparing and contrasting character traits
🌿Perspective taking
🐰Determining what you think 'really happened'
🌿Predicting how the other character might respond
🐰Noticing 'interested' and 'not interested' clues within the character exchanges.
🌿Are the characters friends?  Why or why not?
.
.
It's often easier for children (and adults!) to 'justify' and identify with the character they align with the most.  As an added challenge, encourage your child to take the perspective/point of view of their 'opposite' character.

Can you picture Goofy, the Disney character, who is clumsy and easily excitable? I think his signature phrase “Gawrsh!” sums him right up. His whole personality is captured in one word. 
If Coop had one word to sum him up it would be “Believe”. He is young and full of determination and optimism. He is our little Boy Scout, ready & prepared 🧢🐣🏕 but the blows of life sweep his little toes right out from under him.
He can often be heard repeating the word “believe” under his breath, over and over. His circumstances often leave him in a belly-flop but under the chaos and deep down within he hopes and hopes it will all work out. 🙏🏼🤞🏼🙏🏼

🎄Books as gifts 🎁 📚 I love giving books at this time of year & this is top of my giving list this year. We discovered it in our amazing local children’s books shop @rogansbooks a couple of months ago & it’s been a favourite since. Mixed by Arree Chung is a wonderful story that helps explore colour, diversity, friendship and acceptance of others. The city becomes spilt into ‘reds’ ‘’yellows’ and ‘blues’ and much disruption is caused when a yellow falls in love with a blue. Their love & happiness together creates new, vibrant colours and the community realise they can find more joy with each other rather than against each other. Such a lovely tale of acceptance & friendship, beautifully illustrated and simply told. Great for discussing diversity with little ones, and also just a lovely fun story #readeveryday #literacy #childrensbooks #raisingreaders #picturebook #childrensliterature #childrensliteracy #kidlit #earlyreaders #booksasgifts #mixed #arreechung #macmillan

Hey guys!  Sorry I’ve been so absent here.  My youngest had her first birthday over the weekend so we were I. Crazy planning mode trying to get everything ready for that.  And now it’s on to Christmas.  My older daughter got to see the new Grinch movie in theaters with our extended family over thanksgiving while the baby and I checked out movie posters in the lobby.  Have you seen it yet?  Did you like it? .

💗Books ALWAYS make the best gifts!
If you are looking for a heartfelt gift this holiday season this is it! 💗💗💗
💗
The Invisible String has been a favorite of ours for many years! Our original copy has been well read and loved as evidenced by the bends, creases and scotch tape holding it together! I gifted Lulu the newest edition of this beloved book for our #25daysofbooks 💗
And just when you think a book could not get any better...It does!!! With a few minor changes and the most adorable illustrations, this story still sends the overall message that we are all connected by love!!! A perfect gift for the season!

A més les il·lustracions de Quentin Blake em semblen molt boniques i tendres 😍. És a partir de 8 anys, per si teniu curiositat ☺.

It’s been cold here in Florida, snow in many parts of the country, it’s hard to believe it’s not officially #winter yet! I always love doing a winter #storytime theme here in Florida because it gives us a chance to talk about the wonders of winter with littles that don’t get to experience it all! But there are so many great #picturebooks about winter for all our young readers such as this great read, “If It’s Snowy and You Know It Clap Your Paws”. Be sure to read about this book and other great winter reads on the blog today! Link in bio ❄️

I've been stuck in a block for so long, just couldn't decide what medium to go with for colours 🤯 Finally decided on pencil crayon over watercolour after digital painting and gouache tests. This is a work in progress before going in with watercolour details and pencil crayon layers - what do you think of the colour palette so far?? 🙃.

Ramona the Pest by Beverly Cleary
*
*

I first fell in love with this story based purely on the cover art 😍 Joanne Scribner is a master when it comes to mastering children. I love Ramona’s unruly hair and baggy pants- she is basically every 5 year old I know. I recently read a list of the top 10 books that every 6 and 7 year old should know, and it’s no surprise that this sweet book made that list. It’s a great depiction of that first year of school and Ramona is just so funny that she is sure to are away any anxiety from first year school goers. Grab this book and read it with your little one- you’ll both love it!

It’s a great depiction of that first year of school and Ramona is just so funny that she is sure to are away any anxiety from first year school goers. Grab this book and read it with your little one- you’ll both love it! . #bookstagram #kidsbookstagram #kidsbooks #childrensbooks #childrensliterature #kidlit #dellyearling #dellyearlingbooks #beverlycleary #ramonaquimby #ramonathepest #booklove #booklover #bookworm #booknerd #igbooks #igreads #reading #currentlyreading #illustration #illustrator #joannescribner #coverart #bookcover #vintagebook - 6 hours ago

Looking forward to seeing what the future holds! #editing #freelance #writinglife #writinglifestyle

Something about this time of year makes me want to curl up with a good book. When we moved into our current house a few years ago, we converted a storage space under our stairs into a book nook. While my romantic mental images of my children nestled under a blanket with a stack of books hasn’t yet come to fruition, I have faith that it’s still just a matter of time (none of my girls are independent readers yet). In the meantime, it gets plenty of play as my oldest daughter’s “library”. It’s probably her favorite pretend-play; she’s made library cards for family members, gives book recommendations and hounds those who don’t use her designated return location.

The beauty of books is that they are time capsules for your past. This was a book I had when I was a kid and finding it brought me right back to that time. It starts: “the village called him Mr.Gloomy but his real name was Mr. Toomey...the village people didn’t know their was a reason for his gloom.” After losing his wife and baby he “travelled till his tears stopped.” Its a story about a little boy who helps lift him from his isolation and depression. A great Christmas classic about bringing joy to those hurting around the holidays and the pictures are real works of art. #12booksofchristmas #christmasbooks #christmasgiftsideas #kidsbookshelf #childrensbooks #christmas #literature #childrensliterature #christmasjoy #christmasjoychallenge #dogood #dogoodbegood #joy #service #teachingkids #librariansofinstagram #kidsreading #kidsmorals #christmasspirit #picturebooks #elementaryteachers

If you’ve been following me for any bit of time at all, you have probably picked up on the fact that we LOVE a good friendship story in this house… Especially a good friendship story with a repeated refrain that children can grasp and apply to their own lives! We fell in love with To the Sea by Cale Atkinson (@2dcale) a year and a half ago, and it’s been requested at least weekly, if not more, ever since then.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
To the Sea tells the story of Tim, who often feels unnoticed at school, until he meets an unexpected friend, a whale named Sam. Sam had taken a “wrong turn” and ended up stuck outside of Tim’s school, far away from his home in the sea. The power of simply “noticing” others resonates throughout the rest of the story, and the phrases, “I see you,” “It’s not every day you meet a friend,” and “Friends don’t let friends down” are repeated throughout the book.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The illustrations in To the Sea, also done by Atkinson, are just as powerful as the simple text. Though the entire book is illustrated in shades of blue, green, and orange (with a bit of while here and there), Atkinson manages to change the emotional tone of the pictures, but still keep the same color palette, when the climax hits and the emotional state of the characters changes.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So why do we love To the Sea? We love the unique feel of the illustrations and their eye-catching color palette. We love rooting Tim and Sam on as they find each other, and cheering for Tim as he helps Sam find his way home. But most importantly, we love the messages around friendship. The importance of feeling noticed, of noticing others, of keeping promises, of helping friends— these are wonderful conversation points for reading this book with children of all ages.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Recommended for ages 3-5, but given the unique colors and short simple texts, this works well for younger children. To the Sea could also be read with older children during m social-emotional lessons on friendship.
