Occasionally I will read a kids book, to preview for my kids or just because I thought it sounded cute. Here a couple of those.
What Really Happened in Roswell? Just the Facts (Plus the Rumors) by Kathleen Krull and Christopher Santoro ~V^^^^^V
I loved this. Its a informative recounting of the events that occurred in and around the Roswell incident. The facts are recounted along with the "beliefs" of people involved. The book is an easy read for those new to longer (or "chapter") books. The illustrations are adorable and the open ended, "what do you think?" at the end of the book is perfect.
Monsters: Hologram World by Dugald A. Steer and Justine Peek ~V^^^^V
A perfect seasonal read for younger kids. Its informative, giving facts along with mythological information. The illustrations and holograms are super fun.
Bailey School Kids: Aliens Don't Carve Jack o' Lanterns by Debbie Dadely, Marcia Thorton Jones and John Steven Gurney ~V^^^V
Pretty cute. This story is about the Bailey School kids preparing for Halloween. Along the way they discover an alien in their midst and all the candy has disappeared, just in time for the holiday. The kids need to save the day in more ways than one. ~Michelle
