OCTOBER - EgoReads for Kiddies

It's ALL about ME:
Mother: "No, you can't have the iPad right now!"
4yo reply: "I can't believe this. NO ONE UNDERSTANDS MY LIFE!" *throws his hands up and stomps away*

The Wrong Book  by Nick Bland
Nicholas Ickle has a big problem. He is trying to tell us HIS story. Yet everything he tries to tell us what his book is about... silly things happen to stop him. Elephants show up. Pirates appear. Then, there are the rats. Nickolas keeps telling these creatures that they have to go away, after all they are in the... Wrong Book! The Wrong Book is goofy and fun. After the first reading, my grandson started in with 'You’re in the wrong book'. I can see this being one of those books that he pretends to read as the text is quite simple with the illustrations giving clever visual prompts.

No Bears  by Meg McKinlay & Leila Rudge
Ruby is in charge of this book. And she'll tell you something right now. There are NO BEARS in it. Not even one! Ruby would like to tell you a story. A story with absolutely no bears, Ruby is sick of bears! You don t need bears for a book. You need pretty things like fairies and princesses and castles. And maybe funny things and exciting things but definitely no bears!

Mortimer  by Robert Munsch
This is the story of a boy named Mortimer who does not want to go to bed. When he is put to bed he is told to be QUIET, however, Mortimer decides to sing at the top of his lungs and disrupt everybody in the house. The family gets so fed up with the noise that they end up calling the police. This story gives the impression that it was written from the point of view of a parent who was driven crazy by the noise from their young son. This book is lots of fun, especially if you can get the kids to sing his special song really loudly! Get the family to join in and make a huge racket!

The Terrible Suitcase  by Emma Allen and Freya Blackwood - Sometimes you don’t always get what you want. Instead of the rocket backpack, you might end up with a terrible suitcase for the very first day of school. And this makes you mad! But sometimes what you think is terrible, might not be so terrible after all, especially when there are rocket ships and new friends involved. The Terrible Suitcase is a lovely story about acceptance, making friends and new experiences.
