1.          175.     Once upon a time, there was a Thomas named Thomas.  Thomas caught a star.  Thomas caught a star and he put it in a jar.  He wanted to save it for later.  He wanted to have jars of stars, and dishes of wishes.
The End.

Book 442

Splat the Cat, Name of the Game, based on creation by Rob Scotton, illustrated by Robert Eberz, Harper Collins, 2012.

My six-year-old son picked this out to give to a little girl for her birthday. I'm sure he picked it because of the artwork. 

I'm not in love with the text -- some of the word choices are questionable -- but I am in love with the artwork. That Splat is one darn cute cat. 

Book 441

Drop It, Rocket! by Tad Hills, Random House, 2014.

A few weeks ago I was working at the Book Fair at my Kindergartener son's school.  I had to buy this book so that I could justify buying the little Rocket dog that went with it.

This book (and Rocket) are adorable.  My son can read this book pretty easily, so I didn't buy it as a challenge for him.  I bought it because it is a fun book to read over and over again.  And did I mention how adorable that Rocket dog is?

Book 440

Otis's Busy Day, by Loren Long, Penguin Young Readers, 2014.

We were in the store today to pick out books for a little girl's birthday.  My Kindergarten son picked out this book -- I don't think it was for the little girl.  On the way home, he read it to us -- perfectly.

This Easy Reader has a little bit of a story, and fabulous illustrations.  You just can't go wrong with an Otis book.
