The Ultra Violets by Sophie Bell

The Ultra Violets, by Sophie Bell, is an ultra-awesome Middle Grade novel, that is going to take your kids on an adventure to Sync City with a purple-haired pre-teen, Iris, and the rest of her friends!  I have to admit that while I am an avid reader, my own daughter takes some encouraging in the subject.  When The Ultra Violets arrived in the mailbox, I had to convince my daughter to let me read the brilliant, purple-covered book first. While the cover is extremely inviting, you’ll be pleased to know that the …

Isabella: Girl on the Go by Jennifer Fosberry

Isabella: Girl on the Go is a picture book by Jennifer Fosberry. The illustrations are done by Mike Litwin. Published by Sourcebooks Jabberwocky, this book left me feeling a bit conflicted. While I loved the premise and idea behind the story, I also felt each page ended a bit abruptly. I wish Fosberry had put just a bit more into the dialogue between Isabella and her father. Isabella is a rambunctious little girl with a grand imagination. Each page takes the reader on a new journey to a new place …

Back-to-School Rules by Laurie Friedman

Perfect for the child that is just about to enter school, and just in time for school to start with a release date of September 1, 2011, Back-to-School Rules by Laurie Friedman is an adorable read. While most back-to-school books focus on what to do, this children’s picture book takes the opposite approach and teaches children what not to do. The main character, Percy Isaac Gifford, is more than happy to share his wisdom with your children, which he imparts by giving ten simple things every child should know not …
