TODAY, Monday, August 29th is a day for celebration. I finished another reading challenge I took on for 2022, the “What’s in a Name?” challenge.

Hosted by Andrea at the Carolina Book Nook, “What’s in a Name?” Includes the following six prompts:

A title that has a compound word–

My choice for this book was a kids’ book, which teaches what a compound word is and has four of them in the title. I reviewed it on PWR under a “Saturday Morning for Kids” post.

Another kids’ book, one I finished today was for the prompt, a reference to speed in the title. For this one, I enjoyed

My great niece and her daughter, who is five, love sloths. Every time I see something like this book cover, I think of them and have a whole new respect for an animal I once only thought of as lazy.

SATURDAY MORNINGS FOR KIDS

powerfulwomenreaders

KIDS’ BOOKS ARE REVIEWED ON PWR ON SATURDAY MORNINGS,
much like Saturday mornings were saved for TV cartoons in the 50s and 60s. Mom and Dad could sleep in while the kids sat down in front of the TV with a bowl of breakfast cereal.

Today’s recommendation is a picture book that will delight both boys and girls while teaching them a lesson about sharing.

Some think Pugs are so ugly they’re cute!

Pig was a Pug who was not only so ugly he was cute, he was selfish and greedy–a pig! He was piggy about his food, his toys, and didn’t want to learn to share.

Pig selfishly gathered all his things into a pile so high that when he…

SATURDAY MORNING FOR KIDS, LATE SATURDAY NIGHT

powerfulwomenreaders

SATURDAYS ARE RESERVED FOR REVIEWING KIDS’ BOOKS ON PWR.

REMEMBER the Ramona books by Beverly Cleary? They’re back; actually, they never went away, just the same homespun wisdom and humor with new covers. I think I read all the Ramona books, but it was only as an adult I discovered Amber Brown. Those too are great books for kids. If your kids or grandkids are into chapter books and series, I highly recommend these two series as something they will really love.

Thanks, Evin, for the sign off.

SATURDAY MORNINGS FOR KIDS

Just as Saturday mornings were reserved for kids’ cartoons on 50s and 60s TV programming, PWR reserves Saturday Mornings for reviews of kids’ books. Today’s recommendation was previously used for a First Line Fridays’ post.

Thanks” Reading Is My Superpower” host for loaning the image.

Today’s book is the awaited sequel to…

…by my favorite children’s author…

Alda B. Dobbs

As noted in the “Friday Firstliners”post, The Other Side of the River begins minutes after The Barefoot Dreams of Petra Luna leaves off. Barefoot Dreams ended with a cliffhanger, and now that River is coming out September 2nd, we can finally exhale.

Usually the sequel to a novel disappoints me, but this sequel is every bit as warm and suspenseful and adventurous as the original novel about the Mexican Revolution.

Petra Luna is a tween, but her responsibilities are those of an adult. Set in San Antonio, this historical novel…
