Picture Book Saturday

Mitchell is one of those kids that just never wants to go to bed. When his dad graciously gives 3 year old Mitchell his license, the boy does all the saftey inspections on his "car" and sets off on an awesome bedtime road trip, on top of Dad's shoulders!

A silly and sweet story about a boy's imagination and love of things that "go," while also illustrating the bond between father and child. If you have a fan of cars in your life, pick this one up as a bedtime read! Be careful though, you just might end up with a road trip in your future.

Cat is very cranky when he wakes up from a sound sleep, because of all the noise on the farm. He decides that the animals are much too noisy and he needs to remedy that! Making the rooster squeak, the pig cluck, and the chickens oink is only the beginning of Cat's mischief...until the tables are turned on him!

A great storytime read aloud, all the animal sounds get mixed up and your kids will be giggling as you do the "wrong" sounds. The illustrations are super silly too, making another winner from Emma Dodd!
