Summer Reading Challenge: Week 2

This week I discovered more great picture books as I continued my summer reading challenge with librarian, Rena Traxel.  Here they are:

  1. Black Cat, White Cat by Silvia Borando Read someplace airy.
  2. My Name is Yoon by Helen Recorvits Picture by Gabi Swiatkowska Read someplace fluffy.
  3. Edmond And The Moonlit Party by Marc Boutavant Read someplace green.
  4. Mixed Me! by Taye Diggs Read dramatically.
  5. Willow’s Whispers by Lana Button Read someplace cozy.
  6. Lulu’s Party by Kit Chase Read lying down.
  7. Katie Shaeffer Pancake Maker by Cynthia Mackey Read somewhere breakfast-y.

Aside from my own book, (which I felt compelled to include while reading in a breakfast-y location and savoring golden brown pancakes) each one of these picture books is brand new to me so I felt happy to discover them.  My personal favourite of the bunch is Willow’s Whispers written by Lana Button, an early childhood educator.  The book features a child who cannot bring herself to use a voice above a whisper.  Her shyness gets in the way and it causes her some problems too.  Finally in the end, her big voice just wiggles it’s way out!

I was a bit disappointed with Black Cat, White Cat by Silvia Borando and yet, the simple illustrations were rather cute.  Maybe you will like it more than I did.

You can still join in the summer reading challenge with me! Just read one picture book each day and catch up by reading two a day for some days.  That’s still do-able.  If you have children in your life, they will be happy to spend the time with you 🙂

Have a great day!
