Picture Book Review

Go ahead and take a look.
It's about a children's picture book.
Not one, two, three or four,
But Buddy chose many more.
Seven great books selected for you.
So check out Buddy's book review.
RIBBIT
by Rodrigo Folqueira
It started off just an ordinary day,
for a family of frogs in a pond.
Until a little pink pig arrived.
The frogs asked the pig
if they could help him.
The pig's response was "ribbit."
The pigs were confused,
is this a pig or a frog?
Additional animals showed up,
they wondered why a pig 
wanted to be a frog?
This funny tale has a
 great message in the end. 
The Dark
by Lemony Snicket
Laszlo is afraid of the dark.
The young boy encounters
the dark in every room.
There is a twist to this story,
dark becomes a character.
Laszlo overcomes his fear
when dark seeks to help him.
 I'm Bored
by Michael Ian Black
A young girl is bored.
She encountered a potato.
The potato likes flamingos,
but the potato does not like kids.
So the young girl tries to prove
to the potato that kids are fun.
She demonstrates what she can do.
But the potato was not impressed.
The girl walked away in disgust.
You will be surprised on the ending.
Railroad Hank
by Lisa Moser
 Granny is feeling blue.
Railroad Hank plans 
to cheer her up.
Hank asks his friends
what he should get her.
Even though his friends
made great suggestions.
Railroad Hank didn't 
understand his friends ideas.
He loaded up his train not 
with food but a whole cargo
containing the food.
Missing Mommy
by Rebecca Cobb


A boy tries to overcome the grief
over the loss of his mother.
It was written from a 
child's point of view.
The boy expresses his emotions
and also questions why she is gone.
Even though his father tried
to explain, there was no answer
the boy would accept.
The child misses his mother.
