a long list....  
we will be returning a batch of books to the library tomorrow morning, so i thought i'd do a quick 'star only' review on them now.

Brave Charlotte - Anu Stohner & Henrike Wilson  **** (4)

The Wind's Garden - Bethany Roberts & Melanie Hope Greenberg ** (2)

Twigboy - Stephen Gammell ***** (5)  Ethne LOVES this one!

Bare Bear - Miriam Moss & Mary McQuillan **** (4)

Beach Is To Fun: A Book of Relationships - Pat Brisson & Sachiko Yoshikawa *** (3)

Gator - Randy Cecil - ***** (5) Ethne's new favourite 'word' is AAAGHEEEE!

Hello, HelloMiriam Schlein *** (3)

The Winter Dragon - Caroline Pitcher & Sophy Williams ***** (5) I really like the illustration on this one...

Little One Step - Simon James **** (4)

My Blue Boat  - Chris L. Demarest *** (3)

Thidwick the Big-Hearted Moose - Dr. Seuss **** (4) gets a 4 because of guns/hunting...two things i'm not big on at all, but it's Seuss, and i still really like the story.

Rooster's Off to See the World - Eric Carle **** (4)

The Gigantic Turnip - Aleksei Tolstoy & Niamh Sharkey **** (4) story is a 3, but the illustrations are a 5, so i give it a 4...Ethne really liked the book too.

Cluck O'Clock  - Kes Gray *** (3)

Moon Lake - Ivan Gantschev **** (4) I really enjoyed this one, but Ethne seemed disinterested...I think maybe for an elementary school child it would be more enjoyable.
