A Sea-Wishing Day

November 7, 2016
Subheader: 

Odd imaginative journey to the ocean.

It's kind of weird. I've known kids to be into animals and possibly boats, but being into the ocean itself is kind of strange.

It's fun to imagine things.

The Berenstain Bears: We Love Trucks!

November 6, 2016
Subheader: 

Tiresome book about trucks.

It's pretty simplistic. It kind of makes me think of Richard Scarry's Cars and Trucks and Things that Go, which my kid had a copy of and which was a lot more interesting than this book, but apparently a lot of fun to rip into pieces as well.

Trucks are awesome.

In the Forest

Subheader: 

Mundane walk through the forest with fanciful animals.

There's no real message. It doesn't really go anywhere. The animals don't really do anything. There aren't any characters. Nobody really has a personality.

The Berenstain Bears' Baby Easter Bunny

November 16, 2016
Subheader: 

Tedious lift-the-flap book.

It's just supposed to be a lift-the-flap book, but I think by the time the kids are old enough to lift the flaps without just tearing them to shreds, they're kind of beyond this. Maybe most kids aren't as destructive as mine was.

The Bike Lesson

November 13, 2016
Subheader: 

Papa Bear fails at riding a bicycle.

Another stupid old Berenstain Bears book where Papa tries to teach Small Bear how to ride a bike and keeps not listening to his own advice and getting maimed and mangled in various ways, and Small Bear just thanks him for showing him what not to do.

Be careful when you ride bikes.
