Ashlei | 28 comments No T. Rex in the Library by Toni Buzzeo

Tess lets a highly-strung beastie T. Rex escape into the Library. While enjoying the beastie’s wild behavior, Tess soon realizes this T. Rex is out of control. T. Rex is destroying the Library by ripping pages out of books, clawing, and gnawing on the books. Tess pleads for him to stop. With her quick thinking, she discovers the only way to put an end to this T. Rex’s misbehavior is to send him to time-out in his book.

This was such a cute book! Younger children would love the illustrations and the use of entertaining text throughout the story. It would be a good read aloud for younger children, especially when teaching them how to/not to behave in a Library with the use of an untamed dinosaur.

Ashlei | 28 comments Rhyming Dust Bunnies by Jan Thomas

Ed, Ned, and Ted are dust bunnies that love to rhyme. Bob has a hard time with finding words to rhyme with Ed, Ned, and Ted. Throughout the book while the other three dust bunnies are becoming frustrated with Bob’s inability to rhyme with them, they discover that he is actually trying to save them from the big, scary monster’s attack of the broom and later the vacuum.
The book is written with little ones in mind. The illustrations are of silly, bright colored dust “balls” while using large print. A super amusing book to assist younger students with rhyming words.
