Summary: Max and Marla are best friends. And aspiring Olympians! With their eyes on the prize, they know exactly what it’ll take to reach sledding success: preparation, practice and perseverance.

With delightful illustrations and charming text, Alexandra Boiger brings to life the story of two unstoppable pals—true Olympians who never give up!
My youngest loved the part where the boy and bird fly through the air and hit a tree. This book was good at teaching kids persistance.
Summary: In this sequel to Earth Space Moon Base, Monkey, Robot, and Deep-Sea Diver embark on a dangerous underwater quest! The jellyfish and spider crabs they encounter are the least of their worries as they search the depths for missing starfish in their bathysphere, the Guppy. Ben Joel Price’s cheeky rhymes and limited yet striking palette evoke an enchanting world that will give young readers the explorer’s bug!
The book uses the same colors throughout the book: teal, green, purple, and grey. My oldest loves more adverture themed books, so he enjoyed this one.
Summary By day, George is a brave boy. He’ll climb the tallest tree, leap over fences, and stand up for his friends, without fear. But when the sun goes down, it’s only a matter of time before his parents say good night, leaving him in the dark. In the dark, George’s room fills with terrifying sights. The only thing to do is to hide under the covers with his bear. But wait! On this night, Bear is not in his bed. Where is it? It’s across the room, in the darkest, scariest corner…
The author did a great job and putting the story in the perspective of a young child. I remember having the same kinds of fears as a child.
Summary: When the mayor of a very tidy town notices a single flower out of place, Fussy Great Ape helpfully offers to fix it…but he demolishes the rest of the flowerbed in the process. He doesn't want the mayor to worry. He sounds off the ape call to action–“Bogo! Pogo! Apes-A-Go-Go!”—and Mucky Great Ape turns up to replant the flowers. Now the flowers look lovely…but now the entire town is covered in dirt! Well, it’s clear what this problem calls for. More apes! These eager apes have the best intentions, but they’re heaping disaster upon disaster. Can they work together to return this town to its formerly tidy glory?
We liked how the gorillas were so much bigger than the townspeople.
