Six Picture Books To Read to Your Child

Queen-a-Bella Finds a Best Friend – Lisa Fair & Nina De Polonia
Genre: Children’s Picture Book
Source: I purchased it
When Queen-a-Bella’s sister sends her away to find her own friend, Queen-a-Bella makes it her mission to find one. She asks a butterfly and a fish. She asks a fox who wants her for dinner. She meets Liam the lizard and asks him to be her new best friend. Everytime he has an excuse she finds an answer until he agrees to be her new best friend. Great book about how friends don’t have to be, or do things exactly the same to be friends. A lesson in diversity.


Truthy Ruthy – Sari Barel
Genre:  Children’s Picture Book
Source: I purchased it.
Ruthy had picked up a bad habit of lying to her parents and not following the rules. Her dad decided to teach Ruthy the importance of telling the truth. Her dad told her that from that point on it was okay to not follow the rules or tell the truth. Ruthy was very happy. He promises to buy her treats and play with her then does neither. Ruthy learns how important it is to always tell the truth.


Meet the Bugs! Poems and Pictures by Mark C. Collins
Genre: Children’s Picture Books
Source:  I received a copy from the author in exchange for my honest review.
Author Mark C. Collins has created a book that allows parents to share the knowledge of bugs with their youngest child. The author/illustrator has created a set of wonderful pictures that make learning about the bugs fun and not scary. His poetry about each bug gives the reader some information about each one. It may be what they eat, where they live, or how they protect themselves. This is a wonderful book that takes the fear of bugs out of learning about them. The charming pictures give a fairly accurate depiction of the bug in a cute and friendly way. The thing that made me love this book was the actual information that is in each poem about the bug. This is a must read book.


Counting From Creation – Tracy Wainwright
Genre: Children’s Picture Book
Source: I purchased it
This is a smart book of twelve poems of events that we can read about in the Bible. It is a great way to teach a child to count, and an even better way to teach Bible truths to a child.

Bear and Bunny Go to Dreamland – Emily Thomson
Genre: Children’s Picture Book

When Bunny announces he is tired he asks Bear how they get to Dreamland and what he needs to take. Bear’s answer is quite simple and satisfying for Bunny.  This is a cute bedtime story that is sure to relax your child and prepare them for their own trip to dreamland.


Not Another Boring ABC Book – Sharon Cohen
Genre: Children’s Picture Book

In this alphabet book Princess Nina takes readers on a trip through her adventures with the alphabet. She begins her journey by shooting apples off the head of alligators. This would be a great book to use in any classroom to teach
