Review: Narwhal: Unicorn of the Sea

Narwhal: Unicorn of the SeaNarwhal: Unicorn of the Sea by Ben Clanton
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book is adorable! All three kids enjoyed it. So cute!

This is so cute! I really enjoy this because it's a comic and it's just plain......AWESOME. My baby sister loves this, she just giggles, laugh, and asks questions like," Why does the fishy have a horn?", and , " Is this a slippery fish?, (aka Slippery Fish from "YouTube.")

My favorite part is when Narwhal makes a new friend and they eat waffles at the end. Even though there are 3 comics in there, they all end with eating waffles. They are short though, they're like 4 pages long each.

Don't Touch This Book! by Bill Cotter

Review posted on Got Fiction?

And on my daughter's blog

I grabbed this book from Sourcebooks for my 2 year old, and it's a cute one! We had just bought Don't Push the Button last week, and these books are really fun for the toddler age group.

I know it's not my usual genre, but every now and then I come across a fun book and want to share. :)

So in the same vein as Don't Push the Button, this book is about not touching the pages...until you're asked to touch the pages. It's fun and colorful and my 2 year old had a grand ol' time touching the tablet to "swirl" the colors.

Basically the monster Larry tells you to touch the page and when you turn it, the page has turned purple, or rainbow, or swirly. At one point you roar like a dinosaur, and on the next page you've "created" a dinosaur! It's good fun.

The only thing I will say about it, is that it works better as a hardcover. On my tablet, the pages would turn if we touched them and swirled. But it's easy enough to just swipe back.

So, yeah, if you've got little ones, or know someone with littles, it's a fun and cute book.
