Let’s Do Nothing

“Let’s Do Nothing by Tony Facile

This book was the 2011 winner of the Red Clover Award, which is given by kids voting for their favorite book.

This book is very funny. It is about two boys who are friends. They have done everything they can think of and so they decide to do NOTHING!

One of them has a very big imagination and so it is very hard for him to sit still and – DO NOTHING.

MMr. Putter and Tabby Walk the Dog

“Mr. Putter and Tabby Walk the Dog” by Cynthia Rylant

If you’re just learning to read, we have a lot of beginning readers for you. There are books about dogs, books about cars, books about children like you. One of my favorite books is mr. Putter and tabby walk the dog, by Cynthia Rylant. Mr. Putter and his fine cat, Tabby, live next door to Mrs. Teaberry and her small dog, zeke. One day Mrs. Teaberry slips and hurts her foot, so she can’t take Zeke out for his walk. Mr. Putter agrees to walk Zeke, but he gets into all kinds of adventures with zeke. Some of the things that happen are funny, and the pictures made me laugh. If you want a funny book, come and borrow one of our many books about Mr. Putter and Tabby.

 

Mrs. McBloom, Clean Up Your Classroom

“Mrs. McBloom, Clean Up Your Classroom!” by Kelly Dipuccio

The whole concept of this story is sure to be a winner with kids familiar with messy rooms of their own that seem impossible to clean up, containing too many wonderful bits of string, rock, and odd bits and pieces that have no apparent value to an adult.

But it is the wonderful illustrations that make this book so outstanding. I must have spent half an hour (or more! ) pouring over each page, making sure i had seen it all. My favorite item in mrs. Mcbloom’s classroom is the gopher that has his tunnel and den under the exploding model of a volcano.
