  6. Cute, fun story on being different, and making friends My six year old is a fan of zombies, and all things scary The name, Zombelina, gave way to age appropriate spookiness I have to say upon picking it up from the library, my daughter dove, nose first, into this one out of the stack of books we had in hand If you have a child that is sensitive to scary things, this book will still be appropriate.

  9. How often do you find a picture book that a great fit for both Halloween AND Christmas I loved Crow s use of rhyme and, as always, I adored Idle s illustrations Many of the dance terms used were foreign to me and I wasn t completely sure how to pronounce them, so, if I were reading aloud to children I d have to do some research Which makes me think many of the kids might be at a loss too Would be a great fit to use context clues, look up definitions, and research dance


  10.

  11. A rhyming story about Zombelina s path to playing the central role in The Nutcracker I liked the part where Zombelina shares her role with her friend, but the problem aka Grandpa wasn t entirely satisfying The rhyming text got a little annoying, but it makes for a sing songy seasonal read aloud Pencil artwork PreK 2.


  12. This supernatural story shows the value of friendship and working together It also showcases dancing and working hard for something that someone is passionate about This book would be ideal to read aloud because the rhyming is smooth and there are many underlying jokes that adults would appreciate If using as a critical thinking prompt, try connecting to Phantom of the Opera Ages 4 8
