Dig Those Dinosaurs and Waynetta and the Cornstalk - Book Reviews

We love reading in our house.  I have made reading something we do every single day in our house.  I think it is important.  Reading great books with my kids is something I really enjoy.  We love to read from a variety of different books.  

My 6 year old is at the age where she can read a bit on her own, but she loves when I read to her too.  Albert Whitman offers.  When I read to her before bedtime we often read picture books.  I received 2 great books to read to her.  However, they have a really nice selection of picture books and more!  

Dig Those Dinosaurs is an adorable illustrated picture book.  It is a cute picture book that teaches kids about dinosaur digging.  My daughter enjoyed the catchy wording too!  It teaches kids how paleontologists do their job.  It teaches them in simple words how the process of digging up bones and then putting them together.  The illustrations make the book a lot of fun!  This is a great book for children 4 to about 7 years old.  

My 6 year old really loved Waynetta and the Cornstalk.  This is a fun Texas Fairy Tale!  My daughter fell in love with this story.  It is a fun western style version of the old "Jack and the Beanstalk" story.  It starts out where Waynetta's mom is having a hard time on the ranch, but then Waynetta finds magic corn.  The story about the giant cornstalk is fun and really captures you.  The ending is really fun too!

You can learn more about these titles and purchase them by visiting the Albert Whitman website.
