These are memes started by Teach Mentor Texts and Book Journey, and I'm excited to participate, along with many other bloggers, in reviewing books I read the previous week. I'll be reviewing picture books through adult books.
These are the books I read last week:
This cute book took home the Geisel Award at the 2014 Youth Media Awards. The star of the book, a goofy green crocodile, tells us he LOVES watermelon, but worries when he swallows a seed. His angst is very dramatic, and he swears off watermelon when the seed finally dislodges. Can he really avoid his favorite food? Little ones will love this simple, funny, red, black, and green picture book.
