Book Review: Fortunately, The Milk - by Neil Gaiman This book is not only funny but entertaining, with the illustrations by Skottie Young which help to tell the story.
Amazing Book Cover: Fortunately, The Milk....by Neil Gaiman....Illustrated by Skottie Young
Neil Gaiman fans, rejoice! The author is releasing a new children’s book this fall and it sounds wacky and delightful. Fortunately, The Milk is the story of a father who goes out to get milk for his children, but he gets sidetracked by a stegosaurus on a hot air balloon, dinosaur police, a ridiculous amount of time travel, and more. In other words, it will be fabulous. And he’s collaborating with illustrators Chris Riddell and Skottie Young. You’ll be able to get a copy or two of the book in October.

Fortunately, the Milk by Neil Gaiman My rating: 5 of 5 stars Hangover rating: 4 (I'm still grinning) Source: Copy at Barnes & Noble Genre: Juvenile Fiction (chapter book) Objectionable material: None Only Neil Gaiman could send a father out for groceries and have him encounter aliens, pirates, dinosaurs, vampires, and a host of other creatures, only to return from his time travels with his necessary item -- milk -- for his children's breakfast cereal. Read in only about 25 minutes in the middle of the Barnes & Noble children's area -- I must have been grinning because the salesman noticed and asked, "it must be funny?" I responded, "I will read anything by Gaiman, even if written for an 8 yr old." A rollicking adventure -- with amazing illustrations. View all my reviews

Babe: The Gallant Pig by Dick King-Smith. $6.99. Publisher: Yearling (July 18, 1995). Reading level: Ages 6 and up. Series - Babe. Author: Dick King-Smith
Dick King-Smith is well-known for his animal stories and Babe is by far the best. No wonder that it was made into a movie! We just finished reading it aloud to our 5-7 year olds. Recommended as a read aloud for early readers and a read alone for advanced readers. Colloquialisms and local English expressions may need some explanation for early readers even if they acn generally read well. Wonderful, heartwarming story.
Time for another Read Aloud Thursday hosted by Amy at Hope is in the Word. It's been a little while since we've been able to participate, but we're back! We read Babe: The Gallant Pig back in November, actually. We were reading it so that Bookworm1 (age 5) would be able to watch the movie with his Nana when we went down to visit her in Texas. (That was the big treat for finishing this particular chapter book: getting to watch the movie with Nana! Hurray!) This is the second book we've read by King-Smith (the first being A Mouse Named Wolf.) I thought A Mouse Called Wolf was particularly child friendly, being an easy read-aloud for my then four year old. Babe was more of a reading challenge for us. I would say that is due in part to the vocabulary words in the book. As I read aloud I had to re-word sentences in my head so that Bookworm1 would be able to read the story. Some of the difficulty lay in the terms King-Smith used to tell his story. Some examples include words like: vicar, pence, Land Rover, ewe, worrying (as opposed to "attacking"), and trials. These words were either unfamiliar to us or not frequently used so I would sometimes switch them out for other words (e.g., "truck" instead of "Land Rover") and sometimes I would explain the meaning. This book is about Babe the pig who discovers himself to be quite good at sheep herding. Adopted by the farm's collie, he learns to herd the sheep in a kind and polite manner as opposed to the traditional way that dogs have of barking directions at the sheep. The sheep respond well to Babe's polite manner and follow his directions quite well, to the point where the Farmer Hogget takes note of Babe's easy way with the sheep. Farmer Hogget decides to enter Babe into a sheep herding competition! So happy are the sheep to have someone speaking to them politely, they will do anything for the pig and so, as you might guess, Babe wins the contest and presumably goes on to live a long and happy life on the farm. I would say that Babe is a very visual book in that the reader has to be ready to work their imagination to see the story play out. Because of the subject matter of the book, you have to be able to visualize the farmer calling out herding directions to Babe and the dog. You have to visualize the sheep's response to being herded about. This was very confusing, initially, to Bookworm1. Bookworm1: Mommy, WHY are they hurting the sheep?! Mommy: Oh. No. Not hurting. HERDING. I then gathered up some items to visually demonstrate to him what herding looked like. This book may have been a stretch for us, but it worked out alright in the end. I might suggest waiting to read this one with a six year old but if you are willing to do a little explaining, I think it works. Given King-Smith's fascination with animals, Bookworm1 happily proceeded on with a different of his titles, which we'll share about very soon!
When Farmer Hogget wins Babe at the fair by guessing his weight, the pig is adopted by a mother sheep-dog who teaches him. Though he is destined for the slaughterhouse, Babe secures his life while...

This is one of my favorite books don't care if it's kind of a kid book I just love the way Kate Dicamillo wrote it
This is the best first grade read-aloud I have discovered. The story really explains why choosing forgiveness is the way to save your own heart. It's a page turner, I promise.
"Forgiveness, light, love, and soup. These essential ingredients combine into a tale that is as soul-stirring as it is delicious." <3<3<3- A kids book and a fast read, but deeply loved.
The Tale of Despereaux by Kate DiCamillo Despereaux Tilling was born with his eyes open, a very strange way for a mouse to come into this world. Things get stranger as he behaves in un-mouse like ways, for one.. falling in love with a human princess. This is also a story about a dungeon, a rat named Roscuro, and a girl named Miggery Sow. This (sometimes twisted/dark) fairy tale is very engaging and does well as a read aloud (currently reading to my 3rd graders!).
The Tale of Desperaux, by Kate DiCamillo. Such a sweet story to read aloud (or alone)! :)
