Watch the Birdie! & How the Crayons Saved the Rainbow - Book Review

Little Maddie loves to curl up with books and have us read the stacks that she gathers...usually they're 8 books high. Now we have 2 new books that she's added to her stacks. As I read each book to her the first time she was a little nervous with suspense...she really liked both, and asked me to re-read them many times.

From Sky Pony Publishing:

Watch the Birdie, by Nancy Cote (ages 3-6):

"When a baby bird falls from its nest, what's a little mouse to do?"

Mousey saw a baby birdie fall from a tree and knew that he was too small to help the birdie on his own. He spotted a cat nearby and enlisted the help of various critters and animals...but the frog was too slippery and the birdie fell off...the bunny was too furry and tickly and birdie fell off...and snail was too slow so birdie fell asleep and fell off.

Unfortunately the cat crept closer with each fall, and then he pounced at the birdie - Mousey bravely jumped between them. In the commotion birdie realized that she could fly and she picked up Mousey and flew them up to the tree nest to safety.

How the Crayons Saved the Rainbow, by Monica Sweeney, illustrated by Feronia Parker Thomas (ages 3-6):

"How will one little forgotten box of crayons save the world from black and white?"

Ruminating Mommy 2016, book review, review, children's book review, monica sweeney, Feronia parker thomas

The Sun and Clouds were best friends who worked together to take care of the earth. Their favorite thing was to make rainbows to bring colour to the world. When they got into a fight they refused to share the sky and eventually the whole world turned black and white.

In one lone classroom there was a forgotten box of crayons who were happy to bring colour back to the world. They decided to draw rainbows all over the world and when they drew a huge one the Sun and Clouds took notice. They renewed their friendship and created rainbows together to bring colour back to earth.

Both books would be a great addition to any children's bookshelf, and they can be purchased at:, Walmart, and other online retailers.

I received both books for my post. All opinions and reviews are my own.
