I recently found two series (well one I knew about but found a new one in it). They are just cute, take 10 minutes out of your adult day to read them to yourself, but would be fun bedtime, or sit and read time with your younger children. They are also good for the early to bit more advanced solo readers.
I found the Sir Ladybug series right before book one came out. I just found out that book two is now also published. The basic idea of Sir Ladybug is tht Sir L is a ladybug knight. He goes out and does knightly things. In the end, we have a moral to our story. And in this sequel Sir Ladybug and the Queen Bee we have a Queen Bee who is a Queen Bee with a, shall we say, an “itch” attached? She likes being a bully. Therefore, it is up to Corey R. Tabor’s hero and friends to stop her. If you like the Pea, Bee, and Jay series by Brian Smith, it is good, too, though Sir Ladybug does run a smidgen younger. The artwork is simple and simply adorable. The colors are not overwhelming but catch your attention. You do need to have known book one to help you understand a few details.
And in a new to me series is the Peanut, Butter, and Crackers series and (what seems to be book two) with Fetch! by Paige Braddock. This is a simple story about three friends, an old dog, a new pup and a cat. They deal with the high energy, the craziness of every day (humans leaving for the day to go to work, food, sleep) and the issues at doggie school. This oddball, but truly loving family, loves mischief, fun, sleep, making new friends, and squeaky balls. The art is terribly simple, the text seriously simple therefore the adult me rushed through, but the kid me would have loved taking their time savoring every minute. While Sir Ladybug is more the six/seven to nine crowd, our PBC crowd is for the young listener and the five and up crowd. (I did find a sample of book one, and due to what I can gather, find Puppy Problems first).
