Brain candy for Mom and Election Book for 3-6 year olds

4 years ago


For Mom:


If you are looking for a fun read that doesn't take a lot of energy, this is a the perfect book.  Co-written by Jennifer Crusie and Bob Mayer, it is one of their better collaborations.  Mayer's description of the ultimate male, aka former Green Beret, matched with the not so perfect yet sexy, Crusie heroine can make for some hot reading under the blanket.  (So hot, you may be able to see your aging bedmate in a new light.)  Best of all for you who are weary, it doesn't use too many brain cells.




For Children age 3 to 6:


 With the election season in full swing, here is an entertaining book for boys and girls ages 3 to 6.  Dads and moms will enjoy the fantastic artistry of Mark Teague.  The story begins with a newspaper article of the mayor campaign event that a group of dogs disrupts.  On the next page is a sympathy card from Ike (the dog) to his person, Mrs. LaRue, which begins


"How sorry I am to hear about your injuries!  Who knew hot-dog carts were so unstable!" and continues with "No doubt you are worried about me. So am I.  But Mrs. Hibbins has promised to serve me meals, and somehow I will persevere."  


The reality of the situation is drawn in brilliant colors...Ike is surrounded by hot dogs and is preparing his next hot dog in a bun.




It goes on from there, with each letter to Mrs LaRue moving the action forward as Ike and his doggy friends disrupt the campaign and then enter Ike into the race for mayor.  You and your kids will love this book!
