August 2016 Book Finds

Every month is a new challenge to find new books! We are always reading pictures books. Yes, EVEN my 10-year-old reads pictures books. Reading of any kind is important. Plus not all pictures books are at the same easy reading level. All books have different degrees in reading level.

It is fun to have a book you can pick up and read and finish sometimes. We really do enjoy reading picture books. This month’s collection comes from some of our travels, some we have bought and some from libraries that we visited.

August 2016 Book Finds: history, dragons, wordless books, zoos, bugs, art works  -

There are links to Amazon for all the books. A lot of the books have previews of the books as well. I make a small amount of money from purhaces made on

What’s New? The Zoo!: A Zippy History of Zoos is a great book to learn more about the histories of zoo! They did not start recently. There have been zoos all over history. We had a great time reading about all of them.

Return is a wordless book that my girls and I have been looking forward to! This is a great series and it is the third book in the group. Journey and Quest are the first two books in this wordless book series. They are all great. You can see so much, plus I love the crayons that make things.

Dragon Was Terrible is a great book about how bad behavoir is not always nice. It says that dragons are horrible but this one is worse. I love how the books works through the problem.

Bring Me a Rock! is a nice book about how small things can help sometimes. A bug king wants big rocks only. He turns away a bug with a small rock. But it turns out that a small rock may be just what you need!

I Am NOT a Dinosaur! is a fun look at the other animals that are not around not but were around during the time of the dinosaurs. Plus there is a great timeline at the end of the book plus details about each animal in the book. We loved this one.

Art Detective: Spot the Difference! is a fun book about finding the differences of orginal art works and a forgery. It is a fun way to look at art and noticing the changes and there is an answer key in the back plus details about each of the paintings.

A Child’s Introduction to Natural History: The Story of Our Living Earth–From Amazing Animals and Plants to Fascinating Fossils and Gems is a book my girls fell in love with. While it is very basic it has a lot of great details for them to read about different topics. It is a good book to help kids learn and maybe find other books they might like on different topics. It covers a broad range of bacis history for them to learn about. It also has a list of nautral history museums to go see at the back of the book.
