My Lemonade Stand Can't Stand Me

My Lemonade Stand Can’t Stand Me

Mark Lawton Thomas (Author), Jeehyun Hoke (Illustrator)

Price: FREE

I bought Mr. Thomas’ other book and was really pleased. So when I read the reviews for Lemonade comparing Thomas to Silverstein and Prelutsky, I had to get it. Well, I wasn’t disappointed. I think he’s on his way. And the illustrator, Hoke, did a fantastic job. I hope they reissue it in a coffee-table edition. It’s that good.

Farm Girl

Farm Girl

Karen Jones Gowen

Price: FREE

This book by Karen Jones Gowen offers a wonderful view of what it was like to grow up in Nebraska in the 20’s and 30’s. It is told from the viewpoint of the author’s mother who grew up during that time in Nebraska. It is well written and easy to read. It would be a great resource for teachers who are trying to teach what life was like during that time period. The author also includes excerpts from her grandmother who was an early homesteader in Nebraska. The narrative style the author has used enhances the book and lets the reader feel as if they are living right along side Lucille Marker. I would highly recommend this book.

Ms. Julie M. Bucknam

FARM GIRL, the groundbreaking and critically-acclaimed folklore history by Karen Jones Gowen, is a 2012 top-rated AMAZON BESTSELLER.

Set in the Dust Bowl of the American West, this true account of a child coming of age on a 1920’s Nebraska farm, recaptures an era. Young Lucille Marker experiences survival during the Depression, one of the worst dust storms in history, and finally the disintegration of the close-knit community in which she grows up. Readers who like the books of Laura Ingalls Wilder or Willa Cather will enjoy Farm Girl. It takes place on the Marker farm, located near Red Cloud, the locale of Willa Cather’s Nebraska novels. Farm Girl takes one back to a time and place that no longer exists in American culture. Richly photographed throughout with over sixty authentic photos documenting the people and places of the story, this historical, easy-to-read book is suitable for use in the classroom.

Things You Might See: A Rhyming Picture Book for Kids Learning to Read

Things You Might See: A Rhyming Picture Book for Kids Learning to Read

Steve Hodge

Price: FREE

My son is five and learning to read. He loved this book and it was an easy read for him to guess the words with the pictures.

Jennifer B.

Every young child will enjoy “Things You Might See” whether they’re learning to read or aren’t quite there yet. Using simple, brightly-colored drawings and often funny rhymes, you’ll read the text accompanying the drawings and point out the last word in each rhyme at the same moment your child guesses the rhyme, making the book a fun, interactive experience for both of you. Some of the things you and your child will read about, hear and see are a cake made out of rainbows, a mitten on a nose, a boy in a hole, a frog in a bowl, a skunk that’s very smelly and a button on a belly. With lots of colorful drawings and fun rhymes, your child will enjoy the time they spend with you each time you share the book together and take some of his or her important early steps toward learning how to read.
