1 Sentence Book Reviews: A Trip to the Library

We went to the library recently, and picked up a couple gems*

Hand, Hand, Fingers ThumbHand, Hand, Fingers, Thumb by Al Perkins, Illustrated by Eric Gurney

A book about a Woodstock for beatnik monkeys.

(Purchase this book for your little hippy for just $8.99 at Barnes & Nobles. Or, if you really are a hippy, just get it out of your local library. Commie.)

Tomie’s Little Mother Goose by Tomie dePaola

Tomie’s Little Mother Goose The author/illustrator of Strega Nona presents a collection of nursery rhymes which starts off with the following gem:

Old Mother Goose,
When she wanted to wander,
Would ride through the air
On a very fine gander.

(Purchase this book of “rhymes” at Barnes and Nobles for just $7.99)

* Honestly, though, I really like these two books. Especially the monkey one. It is a fun read, and, well, it has monkeys. Millions and millions of monkeys.

  1. If you haven’t read The Monster at the End of This Book, Starring Lovable, Furry Old Grover, you are missing out on a great book.

    Written by Jen Stone, illustrated by Mike Smollin and published in ’71, this book was my favorite as a toddler. In fact, I still have the original book and can’t wait to read it to the twins.

    [Kaz: Thanks, I’ll have to check it out… And you don’t have to wait to read it to them, although they might not appreciate it fully until they can see the pictures!]

    I love ‘Hand, hand, fingers, thumb’! Especially when my daughter was very young because we could do the actions.
    I second ‘Monster at the end of this book’. I still own the one I had as a child. It’s a bit worse for wear but it’s the first book we actually read to my daughter and she LOVED it. You can really get into the action with that one.

    [Kaz: everyone seems to recommend this book. We’ll have to check it out!]
