Books read in November

01 Dec

Daddy was there to reassure Ruby and Ruby was there to reassure Rabby.

As Ruby learnt more about the fox in the woods, her fear for it went away.

Autumn scenes were vividly illustrated in this book.


In this lovely book, a young guinea pig shares about how he copes with separation anxiety from his parents.

“While I’m waiting, I cuddle with my blanket or stuffed animal. I get in a cozy place and look at my favourite book. I draw a picture to show you.”

Although he misses his parents, he knows that they’ll be back.


They were two friends who did everything together “until one day the penguin decided that there was something important he wanted to do all by himself… fly!”

The boy tried all means to help his friend fulfill his dream. Alas, none of his plans worked.

While searching for his dream, the penguin became separated from the boy.

As the penguin was flying in the air, fulfilling his dream, he became anxious and wished for his friend to be there to help him.

“The boy was there to catch him. The friends agreed that there was a reason why his wings didn’t work very well… because penguins don’t like flying.”


This book spins a new story with the classic song of a similar title.

A boy spies many animals as he sits in a boat going gently down the stream.

 “What can you see?”

“I can see… an otter swimming in the water.”

Have fun spotting the animals and the rhyming words.


One of the books in the “twisters rhymers” story series.

This one focuses on the ‘ao’ sound. 

The story is silly but fun to read.


All books were borrowed from the NLB libraries.

    How come you’re reading Children’s books? Not that there’s anything wrong with it. Just curious 🙂 BTW, try rather than the old

      Personal reason: I like to read children’s books! I find it such a joy to uncover the jewels behind the simple words and beautiful illustrations.

      Professional reason: It gives me a record of the good books to recommend to the families I work with.

      Thanks for the link, but I’ve observed that the old one is more reliable. Still, I’ll keep it in mind and try it for the post next month.

        The NLBsearchplus link allows you to link direct to the item, unlike the previous system. Like this, or even this.
