Picture Book Review: Tap Tap Boom Boom
Tap Tap Boom Boom (Book) : Bluemle, Elizabeth : "It's a mad dash for shelter as rain sweeps into an urban neighborhood. Where to go? The subway! It's the perfect place to wait out the wind and weather. Strangers share smiles and umbrellas and take delight in the experience of a city thunderstorm."--
Title: Tap Tap Boom Boom Author: Elizabeth Bluemle Illustrator: G. Brian Karas Publisher: Candlewick Press Year: 2014 Word Count: 263 Top 10 Element: Rhyme I am participating in Picture Books 14:14, a challenge created by Christie of Write Wild that encourages bloggers to review 14 picture books in 14 days, starting on Feb. 14th. I am also including this post for Poetry Friday, which this week is being hosted by Heidi at My Juicy Little Universe. Tap Tap Boom Boom is based on the author's own experience with an urban rain storm. This delightful story reads much like a spoken word piece and is a book that begs to be read aloud, likely again and again. This book is a Charlotte Zolotow Honor Book this year. You can read about the other Zolotow winners here. Analysis: Rhyme Again, like with Nocturne last week, I have chosen to highlight a picture book for rhyme that is really more about the rhythm than a strict rhyme scheme. The sharp staccato of mainly two-word lines mimics the pattern of the arriving, crashing, and departing storm, while the repetition of the title phrase creates a refrain that echoes through the story. The opening lines, shown above, give you a taste for the style of this poem. You can find typical rhymes (air/hair) but also alliteration (dark clouds/damp/cold drops/dot) and repetition (tap tap). When I brought this book into my classroom, a group of boys immediately decided to read it out loud to each other. Totally unprompted, the lead reader ended up turning the book into a song. Try it yourself. See if you can resist the urge. Want more picture book analyses?

Teaching kids that it’s not a failure until you quit trying is the theme behind Rosie Revere Engineer by Andrea Beaty Illustrated by David Roberts | STEM Books for girls
"Rosie Revere, Engineer", by Andrea Beaty, illustrated by David Roberts. An inspiring read! You can only truly fail, if you quit!
Rosie Revere, Engineer - Kindle edition by Andrea Beaty, David Roberts. Children Kindle eBooks @ Amazon.com.
"Rosie Revere, Engineer is an absolutely wonderful kids' picture book about a young girl who loves to invent, but finds herself crushed by the laughter of adults — until her great aunt Rose explains the relationship of failure, invention and perseverance. Written in delightful verse and filled with sneaky histories of women in aviation, it's perfect inspirational material for young makers." | best from pinterest
Three cheers for Rosie Revere! by Andrea Beaty and David Roberts. A picture book full of inspiration: Rosie dreams of being an engineer. She loves collecting rubbish and creating contraptions. But people laugh at her creations and her emerging confidence is soon crushed. When Great Great Aunt Rose tells young Rosie how she built aeroplanes during the war, Rosie is once again inspired. But will Rosie’s engineering work this time? What if her plans fail?
Don't let failure stop you! Books That Heal Kids: Book Review: Rosie Revere, Engineer
Design Museum Shop: Gift Ideas > Gifts for Young Designers > Rosie Revere, Engineer
Author: Andrea Beaty Illustrator: David Roberts Interest Level: Ages and Up From the Book Jacket: This is the story of Rosie Revere, who dreamed of becoming a great engineer. Where some people see rubbish, Rosie Revere sees inspiration. Alone in her room at night, shy Rosie constructs great inventions from odds and ends. Hot dog dispensers, helium pants, python-repelling cheese hats: Rosie's gizmos would astound - if she ever let anyone see them away under her bed. Until a fateful visit from her great-great-aunt Rose, who shows her that a first flop isn't something to fear - it's something to celebrate. Why It's On My Bookshelf: I really loved Iggy Peck, Architect. So when a teacher alerted me a second book was coming out about a GIRL I was ecstatic. Rosie Revere has a creative mind and has lots of big ideas. But when she tries to build something and it turns out to be a disaster - she doubts herself and decides she's a failure. Luckily her aunt teaches her a very important lesson - The only true failure can come if you quit. You will also see Iggy Peck in Rosie's classroom. This year my school is really focusing on career education. Nice to have this on my shelf to help encourage children to follow a path towards college or whatever they aspire to be.

Where the Books Are: Children's Books - So funny and so true! Which is a bit scary I guess… #wherethebooksare #kids #books #parenting #booklove #itsabook
Seriously, one of my all time favorites. Very short, but quite wonderful. Easily in my top 5. (Stores claim it's a children's book, but it's really for anyone). Really, look this one up.
My new favorite children's book: so funny! Excerpt: Can it Text? Blog? Scroll? Wi-fi? Tweet? . . . No. . . it's a book.
Terrific book for those people who love BOOKS more than Nooks. Warning: While it is a children's book there is a Donkey character that is referred to as "Ass" in the book.

Some oldies but goodies today, to pave the way for my new feature, Old School Sunday. Beginning next week, I'll be profiling a different title from the past each Sunday, and hopefully having a good laugh at some of the goofy dated stuff I find in them. Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible No Good Very Bad Day by Judith Viorst 1972 | 32 pages | Picture Book This was a favorite book of mine in childhood, and I continue to love it today. Alexander's bad day is something we can all relate to, and I like the fact that we experience all aspects of his bad mood, but still feel hopeful that tomorrow will be better. The Story of James by David McPhail 1989 | 32 pages | Picture BookThis whimsical tale of imagination tells what happens when James takes his little brother fishing with him and turns his back for one second. A perfect blending of magic and truth - it's a shame this book is now out of print. Ira Sleeps Over by Bernard Waber 1975 | 48 pages | Picture BookI was both fascinated with and terrified of sleepovers as a kid, and this book dealt with one of the things I feared - that bringing a stuffed animal to a slumber party would be a major embarrassment. The twist at the end makes me smile every time, and Ira's sister is the perfect antagonist. I love to read this one out loud, just so I can do her voice. Who Came Down that Road? by George Ella Lyon 1992 | 32 pages | Picture BookPresented as a discussion between mother and son, this book is a look back at the many different people throughout history who may have walked down the same roads we walk down today. A fun way to package a history lesson, and a beautifully illustrated book. Whew! That's it - I'm caught up on picture books. Back to normal tomorrow! I borrowed all the picture books in this round-up from my local public library.

Picture Book Review: Waiting by Kevin Henkes
Waiting by Kevin Henkes 2015. Greenwillow Books. ISBN: 9780062368430 Quick Booktalk Five friends - all figurines - stand on a windowsill, each waiting for something. While some of what comes along is predictable, there are also some surprises. About the Illustrations The pictures in this book are similar in style to Henkes’s other recent picture books like A Good Day, and not as much like his popular mouse books. Each picture depicts the different figurines reacting in subtle ways to what happens outside the window and on the windowsill itself. The text hints at many of the story’s events, but it is the illustrations - and specifically the characters’ facial expressions - that really convey the book’s beauty and emotion. The relationship between the text and images is very strong in a way that is really only possible when the author is also the illustrator. Read-Aloud Possibilities The language in this book is really lovely, making it a pleasure to read aloud. It probably works best as a lap book since the illustrations are a bit small to be seen at a distance, but it might also work in a very intimate story time setting, especially if the theme is seasons, toys, or friendship. Because of the soothing nature of Henkes’s writing, it makes an ideal naptime or bedtime read-aloud. Readers Advisory Though very young children are unlikely to understand the depth of the text, they will still enjoy the book, as evidenced by my toddler’s repeated requests to hear it at naptime during the three weeks we had it from the library. There is really no child too young to appreciate something about it. I think it’s also a good book to share with much older kids, maybe even middle schoolers and high schoolers, as it provides opportunities to discuss symbolism and theme in a much less intimidating book than is typically assigned at that level. Other books about waiting that might be interesting complements to this one include Wait! Wait! by Hatsue Nakawaki, Wait by Antoinette Portis, and Waiting is Not Easy by Mo Willems. (I also really recommend pairing this book with the Pixar short Knick Knack, which is all I kept thinking about when I was reading!) I borrowed Waiting from my local public library.

My Neighbor Is a Dog by Isabel Minhos Martins and Madalena Matoso New Picture Books for Summer Reading 2013 Prejudice lives in our world but when we see it in our own parents, it’s impossible to ignore. As new, different neighbors move in, neighbors that the little girl likes, her parents don’t change. Her parents move out and the little girl looks forward to coming back to live there. Without her parents.
Picture book. My Neighbor Is a Dog: Isabel Minhos Martins, illustrated by Madalena Matoso. So many interesting neighbors are moving in! A dog, an elephant couple, a crocodile...but the boy's parents are miffed (never mind that they are giraffes) and pack their bags. In his heart, the narrator knows he will return...someday. This Portuguese import is a subtle story about acceptance that uses a mod style to be peachy instead of preachy. Recommended by The PlanetEsme Plan.
