First sentence: Oh, the wonderful things Mr. Brown can do!

Plot: Mr. Brown is a sound-making wonder! He can hoo hoo like an owl and buzz buzz like a bee. It is so much fun to make noises that you hear every day, like moo and tick-tock. But stranger sounds are fun to make, too . . . like the pip of a goldfish kiss and the grum grum of a hippo chewing gum. Encouraging imaginative play while learning to read, Mr. Brown Can Moo! Can You? will keep kids laughing (when they’re not tick-tocking).

 

Mommy’s thoughts: It was Dr. Seuss’s birthday on March 2 so this is day three of our happy birthday Dr. Seuss book palooza week! Itty Bitty loved Mr. Brown can moo! Can you? Her favorite thing to do right now is make animal sounds so this book is now one of her top favorites we loved everything about this book.

Itty Bitty’s thoughts: she is in love with this book! She loves to try to read it with me the whole book she was making animal sounds with Mr. Brown.

Mommy’s thoughts: I love to find any new counting book because each one is different! A day at the beach is a cute beach/summer themed counting book and we were going to wait and review it this summer but with an almost 18 month old things are spontaneous. So when Itty Bitty wanted to read this one I figured why not and we sat down and started reading! I love the colorful pictures and Itty Bitty loved pointing at them as I was reading to her about starla the starfish as she shows Itty Bitty how to count. Over all we loved this book!

Itty Bitty’s thoughts: she loved this one, hands down a favorite this week! And her new favorite numbers are one and three!

Llama Llama TV show review

llama-llama

Intro: We all know and love the Llama Lama books but in February 2018 the streaming service Netflix aired the Llama llama cartoon!

Cast: The show has a great cast of actors voicing and bringing to life the characters to life you have Franciska friede plays Ramona rhino, Jennifer Garner plays mama Llama, Vania Gill plays Luna Giraffe, Islie Hirvonen plays Nelly Gnu, Brenden Sunderland plays Euclid sheep, Austin Abell plays Gilroy goat, Kathleen Barr plays Grandma Llama/ Eleranor Elephant/ Lenora lepard/ Mama Gnu and Ramona Rhino, Vincent tong plays Officer Flamingo and Daddy Gnu, Shayle Simons plays Llama Llama, David Hoole plays Grandpa Llama and Evans Johnson plays Zelda zebra.

Mommy’s and Itty Bitty’s thoughts: we love this show so much it has a great cast of actors bringing it all to life some of the episodes follow some of the books like Llama Llama and the Bully Goat and some of the episodes are brand new. Itty Bitty has sat down and watched this show so much its one of her new favorites. With her being almost 18 months old very few shows keep her attention all the way through but Llama Llama can and has kept her attention for the whole 30 minutes and sometimes even longer depending on what’s going on! We love that we get two mini Llama Llama shows in each episode. These are our thoughts on show so we want to hear yours! Go watch it and let us know your opinion.

Book info: The Berenstain bears valentine blessing by mike Bernstein Publication date December 24 2013 Number of pages: 24 this book is recommended for 4-8 years. Grade level preschool-2 this book is available in paperback and E-book we own it in a paperback (source bought).you can get this book on Amazon. For paperback 4.74 and E-book .99

 

First sentence: When winter comes to Bear country, a young cub’s mind usually turns to thoughts of ice hockey.

Plot: The country Cousins hockey team has been practicing every day for the big game against their rivals, the Beartown Bullies. But when Brother receives a Valentine in the mail from a secret “Sweetie Bear” he doesn’t know what to do. Will the Valentine keep him from playing his best at the hockey game or will he learn an important lesson about love?

Mommy’s thoughts: I grew up with the Berenstain bears books and always enjoyed them, so when I saw this at the store I knew we just had to have it! I love that the books teach a good, moral lesson. Something else that I love about it and will continue to buy more of the Berenstain bear books because of it, is that when papa bear was talking to brother bear about his secret admirer, papa tells bother that he should not be ashamed about having a crush. He explains that all love comes from God. He then goes on to tell bother that love is patient, love is kind, it does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud…love never fails! I absolutely love that the book talks about God so openly. I wish more books did the same! This book is at a 4-6 age range but I can see kids older than 6 liking this book! It is a little older then what Itty Bitty can sit through so we just put a book mark in it and came back to it. Over all I love this book a lot!

 Itty Bitty’s thoughts: As I mentioned, it was a little long for her but overall I believe she liked it!
