Welcome to the Kid Lit Blog Hop! I have been busy making very short videos on picture books. Here’s one picture book discovery:

Excellent Ed by Stacy McAnulty, illustrated by Julia Sarcone-Roach

The Ellis kids are excellent at something: soccer, math, ballet, and baking. Ed the dog tries to figure out his special skill: breaking stuff, losing stuff, forgetting stuff. But the kids are better at that too! Is this why he doesn’t get to eat at the table, ride in the van, or sit on the coach? Or are his skills related to that? [picture book, ages 4 and up]

Willy Wonka-Like Chapter Books & Kid Lit Blog Hop

Willy Wonka-Like Chapter Books & Kid Lit Blog Hop

How am I defining a Willy Wonka-Like chapter book? You probably don’t need an explanation but here I go anyway:

  • A wacky figure-head behind this adventure
  • A competition between kids (though adults can be involved) OR
  • A mystery that has to be solved through riddles and puzzles

Yep. That’s I came up with this list. What am I missing? Please help me out! Thank you!

 

Book Scavenger by Jennifer Chambliss Bertman

12-year-old Emily’s move to San Francisco is softened by the fact that Garrison Griswold, publisher of an online sensation called Book Scavenger, lives there. This hunt combines books and puzzle solving into a competitive scavenger race. It’s all for fun and bragging rights, but then Emily finds an odd book with her new friend James that just might be a clue to how Griswold wound up in a coma. Is this the end of the Book Scavenger game?

Readers can solve the puzzles in the book OR go on a book scavenger of their own. Yes, it’s a real thing! [chapter book, ages 8 and up]

The Américas Award

The Américas Award and Kid Lit Blog Hop

The Américas Award was founded by CLASP in 1993 to encourage and commend authors, illustrators and publishers who produce quality children’s and young adult books that portray Latin America, the Caribbean, or Latinos in the United States, and to provide teachers with recommendations for classroom use. CLASP offers up to two annual book awards, together with a commended list of titles. This is a great award to find multicultural books for kids~

The Américas Award Winner

This was my Picture Book of the Day selection and also the 2014 Seibert Winner about the amazing conservation recovery effort to save the parrots of Puerto Rico. [picture book, ages 5 and up]
