Lora's Rants and Reviews

My own unapologetic opinions on books and writing. I DO NOT accept review requests but only review books I choose to read and I don't post reviews on Amazon. I'm also persnickity about genre and plot.

Square 6 task: Read a book involving children

Children's book: Moshe Comes to Visit: Fun Rhyming book about Overcoming fears and positive thinking - Tehila Sade Moyal, Fatima Pires

This was a cute-ish story told in verse. The rhythm wasn't quite right and the rhymes didn't always work, but the story idea was that a mother berated her son for being afraid of monsters under the bed, then got scared when he made a pet of a cockroach! I'm vetting beginning reading books for a 5-year-old relative, so this worked into my reading.

 

Any suggestions from parents, teachers, etc for beginning readers that are more interesting then Dick and Jane for a girl who like Disney princesses?
