Sunday Post
The Sunday Post is a meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. ~ Inspired by the meme In My Mailbox.~

It’s a chance to share News. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.

AHHH! GUYS! I went to see Neil deGrasse Tyson at the Fox Theater this week and it was AMAZING! It was a lecture about science literacy (or illiteracy) and how the United States is declining as a major player in the scientific community. Other than that I haven’t done much else worth noting.

Here is my newest page from my Wreck This Journal! I had to ‘write one word over and over’, so of course I chose read. My handwriting is awful, and I should have used a ruler…but oh well!

On her way to her grandfather’s house with a bunch of bananas, Beatrice has a series of mishaps with jungle animals who each substitute something new for what she is carrying.

I am a sucker for beautifully illustrated kids books, and this is one that immediately called out to me.

The vibrant colors and gorgeous pictures are definitely what earned most of the stars for this book, but the story is pretty cute on it’s own. Beatrice is on her way to her grandfather’s house with a bunch of bananas, but along the way she loses them to an animal who gives her something in return…and the process repeats several times.


It is a story I’ve seen around in other forms, so if you have one like this already it might be a skip for you. It is a cute, light read that its definitely something I can see a child picking up multiple times.

Despite the slightly repetitious nature of the book I do think this one makes for a beautiful book to have on the little one’s shelves.

4 stars
