Amazing girls & strong boys

The Princess in Black and the Mysterious Playdate – As usual this was a fun romp in the life of Princess Magnolia/Princess in Black. I just loooove Princess Sneezewort!!! I want her to have her own book.

River Secrets – This is kind of special to me because I read it in Vegas over Thanksgiving break after a break up 😥 So I had a hard time getting through the book. But I loved Razo in this story. I want a boyfriend like Razo! 😛 You will have to read the book to find out why.

Alvin Ho: Allergic to Birthday Parties, Science Projects, and Other Man-Made Catastrophes – I just might read this whole series because Alvin Ho sounds like many of the students I see in elementary schools.

The Amazing Days of Abby Hayes: Volume One – I wanted to read this because it’s one of the first books my sister Lillian showed me back in like 2000. It features a girl who collects calendars! It brings me back to my middle school days.

Silly, scary & tough

I loved this series of books because it opened my eyes to how fun early readers, graphic novels, and chapter books could be. What a fun bundle of books 😀

The Story of Diva and Flea – This is a graphic novel by Mo Willems and Tony DiTerlizzi. It was as charming as a story about a cat and a dog in Paris could be. ❤

The Princess in Black and the Perfect Princess Party – I really love this series because it’s a fun combo of princess and ninja stories. I also loved all the different princesses! (even though it is a little stereotypical). Princess Sneezewort is my favorite.

Ling & Ting: Twice as Silly – I’m so glad I gave early readers a try because the stories are so charming and distills storytelling into its most basic. Each episode in this series was so fun! and Grace Lin’s illustrations are wonderful as expected.

Alvin Ho: Allergic to Camping, Hiking, and Other Natural Disasters – It would be adorable and chaotic if my future son is anything like the kid in this story.

Lint Boy – Such a unique story! The pictures could be kind of scary but it was also very interesting. It reminds me of Coraline which I also am a big fan of.
