What Do You Do With An Idea?

What Do You Do With An Idea?
Author: Kobi Yamada
Rating: 5/5 Stars
Reviewer: Juan

Summary: The story is about a small boy having an idea and his journey of bringing it into the world. At first he is worried what others may think and how his idea might be viewed as ridiculous, wild or impossible. But as he continues to nurture his brilliant idea, it grows and so does his confidence. And then suddenly, something amazing happens which changes the world.

Review: This is a great story that any child or adult can relate to. We have all had an idea that might have been a little too big, wild, or downright crazy. This story inspires and teaches to never give up on one’s dream and to look forward on what that idea may bring.

Summary: A spin on Mary Had a Little Lamb with an inventor twist.

Review: This is a great spin on the classic song “Mary Had a Little Lamb.”  In this rendition she is a young inventor who clones a sheep and has some crazy adventures.  A very cute book that draws on the imagination and has a lot of fun in the process.

Reviewer: Julie B.


Summary: Alligator discovers Duck hanging out on his front lawn and is determined to find out who the duck belongs to.  Alligator brings Duck around town to the library, the movie theater, even skydiving and still doesn’t know who Duck belongs to.  Finally, Duck points out that he is belongs to Alligator.  Alligator reflects on the adventure they had together and agrees.  Duck belongs to Alligator.  They are friends.

Review: Pre-K thru age 6.  What a fun, comical story!  I love how grouchy Alligator is in the beginning of the story, and after spending the day with Duck, realizes they have become fast friends.  Short simple text and large illustrations are great one on one or in a small storytime.  I predict many giggles will be created by this book.
