Video Review: Little Blue Truck Series (Part Two)

A few months ago I reviewed the Little Blue Truck series – a very popular collection in our house!  We’re still reading the series with my baby pretty much daily, and have expanded our collection.  This video reviews four more books in the series, including Little Blue Truck’s Christmas – currently timely, fun all year round, and one of the best in the series.

Video Review: The House in the Cerulean Sea

I recently read The House in the Cerulean Sea by TJ Klune on the recommendation of a friend.  I’ve since been recommending it to many other friends, so a video review was likely inevitable!  Warning – contains some rambling, and lots of repetitions of the idea that it was so, SO GOOD.  Enjoy my review – and I think you’re likely to enjoy the book too!

Video Review: Anne of Avonlea

I’ve been rereading the Anne of Green Gables series by my favorite author, L. M. Montgomery.  I recently read the first and most famous book, and today I’m back with a video review of Book Two, Anne of Avonlea.

Anne of Avonlea continues Anne’s story, and I continue making connections to Montgomery’s life.  I share a few insights on the background of the writing, and discuss both the best and the…not as good…parts of the book.  Enjoy!

Video Review: Anne of Green Gables

Regular readers know that L. M. Montgomery is my favorite author – and you may also know that her most famous book is Anne of Green Gables, which tends to have better name recognition than she does! I’ve been rereading the Anne series, and have started video reviews of each book, starting with the first and most famous.

Anne of Green Gables isn’t my top favorite, but it’s a good book and a good place to start with Montgomery.  In my review, I discuss the characters, including why I think Marilla is more important than is often recognized, make some connections to Montgomery’s own life, and show my faux first edition.  Enjoy watching!

Video Review: Roar of a Snore and Prancing, Dancing Lily

Today I’m sharing another video review, of two picture books I’ve been enjoying reading to my baby: Roar of a Snore and Prancing, Dancing Lily, both by Marsha Diane Arnold.  The first is a fun rhyming story of waking up a family one by one to find the source of a great and clamorous snore.  The second follows a cow on her quest to find her own right dance.
