Summer Scholastic Reads (4 Book Reviews)

Summer has rolled around and with that so have a host of Summer Reading Programs. To add some punch to the reading festivities here are 4 new Scholastic picks that you can introduce your child.
I know three out of the four are better suited for a Father's Day but lets celebrate Dads in July too. Dads are the pillars in our family and deserve to be celebrated the whole year through, right?!

Now to the books....

LaRue across America

In this hilarious book, Ike's plans for a peaceful cruise with Mrs. LaRue are thwarted when their neighbor, Mrs. Hibbins, falls suddenly ill from heat stroke. Mrs. LaRue suggests that she and Ike care for her cats while Mrs. Hibbins is in the hospital, inviting them along on the cruise. But cats aren't allowed, and Mrs. LaRue decides to take them all on a week's vacation of road-tripping.

Ike begs and begs for bus fare in his letters to Mrs. Hibbins, but she does not respond. As they drive farther and farther from the coast, his wistful dreams of a cruise fade into desperation over the desert horizon.

I have to admit that I think this book is one of my favorite "funny" books for kids. The humor spun into each page as Ike's desperation builds, is hilarious. Older children and adults may be able to to better appreciate Ike's snarky postcard jots than the younger ones.

A definite must read for a good laugh!

When I Grow Up

"What will I be when I grow up" is a question all of us will hear tumble out, at some point, of our children's mouths. This beautiful book begins with a little boy asking his Daddy the same question and discovering that everything begins small and then slowly grows to become something magnificent.
The fuzzy caterpillar becomes a colorful butterfly, the little sprout becomes a tall tree.... then the little boy realizes that he has finally found the answer to his question!
(You will need to read the book to find out more!)

Daddy's Little Scout

This sweet book tells the story of Little Fox and Daddy as they go on their own little "house hunting" adventure tumbling down hills, counting rabbits and playing in the stream.
The Daddy-Son duo explore the homes of their woodland buddies and finally find the home that's just right for Daddy and his Little Fox.

My Daddy and Me

My Daddy and Me
is a book that shares the love between a father and his child right from the beginning of the book till the end. The bond they share is likened to complementing pairs like peanut butter and jelly, rakes and leaves and the moon and the stars. Truly a love relationship that is special and everlasting!
