Rosie Bear Book Review: Two for One Monday

1.All through My town, by Jean Reidy

all through my town

Reading All Through My Town, is like taking a walk through any small town – one populated with animals that is.  Busy residents run stores, deliver newspapers, race for the bus, and meet friends.  The rhyming prose is fun to read, and the brilliantly colored illustrations brim with life  They brim with something else that is very special too . . . bears.  See how many you can spot as you browse through the pages of this great book.

Rosie Bear says Three Paws up!

2. Too Many Toys, by David Shannon

too many toys

Spencer has too many toys! He has fleets of trucks, a tub  of bath toys, closets full of games, puzzles and costumes, and many many stuffed animals. Worst of all, people keep giving him more.  Everyone knows that Spencer loves toys, so every time he has a birthday or holiday, his aunts, his uncles, and his friends give him presents.  And they know what he likes, so they give him toys.

One day the toys become a problem.  Spencer’s Mom trips on his train tracks while carrying a load of laundry.  “You have too many toys!” she says. “Bring me all the toys you don’t need anymore and we’ll give them away.”  They put the toys in a big box, and after all that hard work, Spencers Mom goes away for a rest.  When she comes back she finds a big surprise.

This is a fun book with a great message – Spencer should keep his stuffed bear! Well, no, that’s not really the messsage, but there is another  good one.  Read, Too Many Toys, and see what you think.
