Froggy
Oct 9th, 2010 by Noodlenuts

Age Range: Toddler

There is a Froggy  story for almost every occasion or circumstance, but unlike some other such prolific authors, Jonathan London manages to maintain the entertainment value throughout this series of familiar situations, with sound effects that will keep toddlers giggling non-stop.

For a Rainy Day:
Jun 3rd, 2010 by Noodlenuts

One difficult I’ve noticed in dealing with children’s books is the lack of activity books (particularly really interesting ones) suitable for very young children. Indoors and outdoors, science and art–there are books here full of ideas and suggestions to get your preschoolers engaged and active and keep them busy anytime. Read the rest of this entry »

I Like the Music
May 22nd, 2010 by Noodlenuts

I do not like this concert hall.
This concert hall’s no fun at all. . . .
But I like the music in the street . . .

Don’t be fooled by that first line!  This fabulous book is a wonderful introduction to the joys of both “street” music and symphonies, to the irresistible music of various ethnic communities and the rousing strains of orchestral music. Read the rest of this entry »

Pecorino’s First Concert
May 20th, 2010 by Noodlenuts

Before the day is out, Pecorino will furmuzzle a man with a long mustache, wamboodle himself down into a tuba, and cause the most Brobdingnagian blast of a note that anyone has ever heard.  It’s all in a day’s work for Pecorino.

How does one even begin to describe the best things about the story of the silliest boy in the world and one of his silly adventures? Read the rest of this entry »

Cool Bopper’s Choppers
May 6th, 2010 by Noodlenuts

Cool Bopper was a bebopper

in the Snazzy Catz Jazz Club.

Cool Bopper,

like Charlie Parker,

bopped hard

below silver stars

and blue moons

of night.

Cool Bopper’s Choppers reads like a jazz song—long, skinny columns of text displayed as sheets on a music stand give a winding, sing-song feeling to language that bounces and scats, stops and starts, and flows like the best free-form jazz, without being too abstract for a young child to enjoy.

I Know a Shy Fellow Who Swallowed a Cello
May 6th, 2010 by Noodlenuts

I know a shy fellow . . .

. . . who swallowed a cello.

I don’t know why he swallowed a cello.

Perhaps he’ll bellow.

There are countless variations, in children’s books, of the story/song about the old lady who swallowed a fly.  Of all of them, my current favourite is I Know a Shy Felllow Who Swallowed a Cello. Read the rest of this entry »
