Deja Vu Review (14)

So, Brittany from The Book Addict’s Guide has started a new weekly feature called The Deja Vu Review, where we can give mini reviews of books we’ve read before we started blogging (or books we never wrote reviews for).  I think this is a great idea, and although it means I’m participating in five memes a week (I know that is crazy!  But I will still post at least two book reviews a week) I wanted to support Brittany.  Plus, it is fun!


I’m showcasing some picture books again for Deja Vu Review.  Being a children’s librarian, and hosting at least three storytimes a week, I have read more than a few picture books.  I love picture books so much, and in case anyone is looking for some books to give children as gifts this Holiday season, I thought I would share my thoughts on a few.

three bearsThe Three Bears by Byron Barton
Rating: 4/5 stars
Mini-Review:  This is probably my favorite version of Goldilocks and the Three Bears folktale out there.  I love this version so much because 1. the illustrations are bright, and not too busy; and 2. because it is simple enough to read to even two year olds, but interesting enough to read to 4 and 5 year olds.  Seriously, you can’t go wrong with this one.  It might be difficult to come across, because it was published quite a while ago

big smelly bearBig Smelly Bear by Britta Teckentrup
Rating: 4/5 stars
Mini-Review: This is such a cute story about a bear who hates to take a bath.  When he gets an itch on his back, though, no one will scratch his back for him because he is ridiculously smelly.  This is a great book for a three or four year old.  The illustrations are funny, and it makes a great readaloud.
