Olympics in Chapter Books for 4th grade I get this great newsletter from Random House Kids and wanted to share their newly published chapter books on the Olympics.
I am always delighted to help find books for kids. I received an email asking for book recommendations for Japanese themed and Japanese/English bi-lingual books and this is what I came up with.
A list of favorite picture books that are not widely known.
Dragons and aliens and dinosaurs, oh my! And for girls, there are interesting slightly mischieveous girls to meet as well as cousins who are really sweet. Short chapter book series can often have repetitive plot lines about nothing or language that is neither rich nor interesting. There is something special about each of these book series for the child AND the adult reading along.
This appealing series is a fun and funny read with great illustrations by LeUyen Pham that really make the book come alive. Look and Pham have a winning combination. Fans of Diary of a Wimpy Kid can have another series to dig into! Hooray for that!
