King Hugo's Huge Ego

Title: King Hugo's Huge Ego
Author: Chris Van Dusen
Pages: 38
Grade Level: K-4

This is a children's book. The rhyming on the first read sounded forced but the more I read the book the more I loved it. The illustrations are beautiful, large, and colorful. The text and pictures together make for wonderful harmony. I read the book to all my kids (ages 3, 5, 7, and 9) and they all absolutely loved the book.  It is funny and sweet all while teaching the lesson of how being full of yourself doesn't make you loved it only makes you full of hot air!

Reading Log-August 2011

First off I would like to apologize for the total lack of reviews lately. I have times when I struggle with things and this is just one of those times, lasting a bit longer than I would like but that is just the way of life. Trust me, just remembering to put up my log is hard enough, but I am always up to questions. If you have any about anything I read, no matter in what context--as a reader, a researcher, a teacher, a librarian, and so forth--please, do not hesitate to ask. Thank you for your patience.
