Review | Thunder Boy Jr. by Sherman Alexie, Yuyi Morales

My Review Thunder Boy Jr. was a book I randomly found in the library while looking for books to check out for the littles. The one thing that caught my attention was the cover; there was something so beautiful about it. I was also excited to see that Yuyi Morales had illustrated Thunder Boy Jr. the kids and I had read a couple of Yuyi Morales books last year and really loved her books so we were excited to see her illustrations. Thunder Boy JR. was a story that the Littles absolutely loved. The first time we “read’ it was Poochies reading his own version of the story and then Princess reading her own version of the story and then finally we read the story. About Thunder Boy Jr Thunder Boy Jr is a story about a little boy who’s named after his father. His sister and mother have what […]

As Told By The Littles | Just In Case by Yuyi Morales

Just In Case is a sequel to Just A Minute. This time Senor Calavera is back to visit Grandma Beetle for her birthday and he wants to take her the perfect present. What I loved about this book was that it focused on the alphabet. I’ve been homeschooling the littles and trying to find materials that are both English and Spanish has proven to be difficult. I loved how we were able to recite the alphabet in both in English and Spanish and I felt like the Littles were able to take something away from the book. Once again, the illustrations were beautiful and really captured your eye and brought the story to life. I would definitely recommend both Just A Minute and Just In Case. Thank you again to Naz over at Read Diverse Books for recommending these to my littles and I. Subscribe to Blog via Email Enter […]

As Told By The Littles | Just a Minute by Yuyi Morales

Just A Minute was the book I was looking forward to the most to read to the littles. I’m always searching for ideas to teach them English and Spanish and was pointed to these books via Naz over at Read Diverse Books. Just A Minute had beautiful illustrations that not only caught your eye but my kids recognized a lot of the items that we use in our every day life. I felt like they were able to connect to the story more because of that. Just A Minute was an adorable story of Grandma Beetle who avoids taking a trip with Senor Calavera by telling him she needs just another minute and the story flows from there. I really loved how English and Spanish were incorporated throughout the story and how it also involved counting. I’ve been teaching all three littles to count and found this book to be […]
