Balloon Toons: Adopt a Glurb



This Christmas I wanted to surprise the boys with some books that they hadn’t seen before, so I went searching at the local bookstore to see what caught my eye. I happened upon a collection of books that I instantly knew my oldest son would adore. Balloon Toons, by Blue Apple Books. I bought Adopt a Glurb!, by Elise Gravel (she’s got a very fun blog!). I’m one of those people that judges a book by its cover, probably because as a designer I believe that is an important part of the package! Check out the book design and illustration!! It’s been a huge hit. For all of us. I always find it more enjoyable to read a well designed book, and it looks like my boys do too. I love watching my little reader laugh as he reads this book. He’s growing up so fast! I love that the illustration on the cover looks just like some of the characters that he draws all the time!

How about you? What is your favorite book to read to your kids right now?

    I came across some great books for boys (and girls!) that are past the early reading stage but not into the big novels yet. They are called Doyle and Fossey and they are a series of books about a boy and girl who solve mysteries using science. Highly recommend them – especially when you are about to pull out your hair at the thought of reading another Magic Tree House!
