What We’re Reading Wednesday: STUCK

stuck cover

STUCK is written and illustrated by Oliver Jeffers. It’s a silly book about a little boy named Floyd that gets his kite stuck in a tree. As he attempts to knock the kite free, Floyd ends up getting all sorts of other things stuck as well. Everything from a ladder to a whale to a firetruck & firemen.

We have checked out STUCK from the public library a few times because the kids love it. And I enjoy reading it to them over and over again. It’s such a fun read.  (the illustrations are great too!) However, other parents have stated that Floyd should have simply climbed the ladder to retrieve his kite. Well, how logical. That does make perfect sense. However, my children wouldn’t be rolling with laughter if that was the story. Instead, they love turning the pages to see what wacky, absurd object Floyd will throw into the tree next.

I highly recommend this book if you enjoy hearing your children giggle.

To purchase, go to Amazon or Barnes & Noble.

What We’re Reading Wednesday – Little Owl’s Night

My children and I LOVE books. We enjoy discovering new characters and stories. So, I’m going to start a weekly post featuring one of our favorite reads from the week.

little owl's night book

Last night, we read an amazing bedtime book that Harper received for Christmas. “Little Owl’s Night” by Divya Srinivasan is a wonderful story about nighttime. Unlike so many other Children’s books about the night, the focus is not on going to sleep. Rather, Little Owl shares the wonders of the nocturnal world.

“Little Owl’s Night” is beautifully illustrated. All of the woodland animals are delightful in their after-dark settings. My children loved the illustrations so much that we downloaded desktop wallpaper from http://www.pupae.com/littleowlsnight/funstuff.html

We hope you enjoy “Little Owl’s Night” as much as we do!

Order from: Barnes & Noble or Amazon.
