iBLURB for Kiddies 7

Quote: If you want your children to keep their feet on the ground, put some responsibility on their shoulders.  - Abigail Van Buren

Help! I'm cracking up!  by Tedd Arnold
The star of this book – is a crazy, paranoid kid who takes life more than literally – as he finds himself falling apart and losing it, panicking over each and every  harmless adage made in the world around him. When asked by his dad to give him 'a hand' for example, our Nervous Nelly panics over how he is going to live without it, and how he can assure that his hand stays on the end of his arm - by using some good strong glue, I suspect. 
(Enjoy this book, but just don’t lose your mind!)

Henry always felt out of step with the world around him. When everyone looked up, he looked down. If he thought it was going to be a sunny day, it usually rained. Amy could do everything right, she never tied her shoelaces together, or forgot her umbrella. Amy showed Henry everything she knew, but deep down she wished she didn't always have to be so perfect. So Henry showed Amy how to dress funny and roll down hills sideways. Together, they could be serious or silly, right-way-round or upside down. As long as they were together they could do anything! (It's a bit whimsical, it's a bit silly and more than a little bit cute)

Just another ordinary day  by Rod Clement
Like most kids, Amanda gets dressed, goes to school, plays with friends, and eats dinner with her family. But don’t be fooled by this deceptively simple story — readers will soon find out that Amanda is no ordinary girl! Best-selling Australian artist Rod Clement has created a wickedly funny picture book in which the artwork tells an extraordinary story of ‘Just another ordinary day.’ 

Bawk & Roll  by Tammi Sauer
C'mon over--there's a whole lot of clucking going on in this hilarious follow-up to the popular Chicken Dance. Marge and Lola have hit the big time! The dancing duo is ready to rock 'n' roll their way across the country, touring with the great Elvis Poultry. But when the lights go down and the curtain goes up, stage fright sets in. Will our two beloved chickens be too chicken to perform? Or will they find their courage and totally bawk, shake, and flap? (the illustrations are hilarious - Elvis Poultry steals the show!)
