Gentle Readers . . . and Maxwell,
It's time for The Cephalopod Coffeehouse, hosted by The Armchair Squid.
The idea is simple: On the last Friday of each month, post about the best book you've finished over the past month while visiting other bloggers doing the same. In this way, we'll all have the opportunity to share our thoughts with other enthusiastic readers.
My book for May is Ten Zany Birds by Sherry Ellis, who blogs at Mama Diaries.
I'm so proud of Sherry. This is the third children's book she's had published. Ten Zany Birds became available quite recently.
The illustrations by Charu Jain are adorable. Ten Zany Birds can be a book to read aloud to children, or it's a good choice for children who are learning to read. It also incorporates counting.
Ten zany birds
singing in a tree,
dance at a party,
happy as can be.
Five with stripes.
Four with spots.
One with purple
As you can imagine from the description of the birds, they are cute as can be. I intend to buy this book for all the young children in my family. Guess what you're getting for Christmas, great nephews and nieces? (Good thing they don't read my blog.)
You can purchase Ten Zany Birds on Amazon at http://goo.gl/NVFM0d. Sherry very generously gave me an autographed copy of the book because I assisted with editing--not that she needed much help from me! I'm not receiving any remuneration for this review. She won't even know until sometime today (Friday) that I've written it.
To participate in The Cephalopod Coffeehouse or see the other bloggers' favorite books for this month, all you need to do is visit The Armchair Squid.
Thanks for the book, Sherry! I love you!
Infinities of love,
