The new 2011 Fall books are now available at Charlesbridge. We are a family that loves books so we were excited to get new books and add them to DD's ever growing library. The first book we received to review was Santa's New Jet. The story is told from Santa's perspective. Santa's reindeer were too out of shape to fly his sleigh, but the elves built him a jet in time to deliver all of the gift. Santa had a lot of problems with his new jet, luckily the reindeer arrived in time to help Santa deliver all of the toys. We thought the story was really cute and the art is adorable as well. Last Christmas we decided to begin a new tradition. After we put out our Christmas tree, we are going to place all of the holiday related books under it. Then the kids will get to pick what they want to Daddy to read to them under the Christmas tree every night before they go to bed. We already purchased some Christmas books last December and we are excite to have gotten this fun new book to add to our little collection.
Teddy Bear Math is a wonderful book to use as a tool to teach your kids basic math. Through simple descriptions, the book is able to captured and express the basic concepts behind addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. We used gummy bears to work through the book with her. However, because DD kept on eating the gummy bears, we realized that it was not a good idea. So we printed out some teddy bear images to do the math with her and that is working out much better.
Me and My Dragon is an children's book about how a little boy wants a dragon and the different things he would like to do with his dragon. For instance, he would read to his dragon pet every night, hug him every day and walk him at least once a day. The illustration is wonderful. DD loves the way the dragon looks. She has been asking for a pet dragon so I feel like this book was written just for her. All in all, it is a great book for any child who dreams about having a pet.
Last but not least, DD also received the Robot Drawing Book to review. DD loves drawing things. She spends hours drawing different objects every day. This book offers very basic step by step directions on how to draw different robots. It is easy enough for a preschooler to follow but it also contains advanced/ additional drawing tips for older kids so that they could modify and create their own robot images. This is a great book for the little artist in your home. We love this book so much that we will be picking up other books by this author.
