Today I am going to tell you about an awesome triple-play, but there are no sports involved! I am going to let you know about 3 must read ebooks from uTales! I recently reviewed the first uTales ebook I ever read (“Annie and Me” by Sandra Hershenson, read my review HERE) and I was really impressed with the ebooks on uTales. My little sister (who has some trouble reading) also really liked the ebooks on uTales and thought they were fun to read.
Now on to the game!
Our first batter up is “The Cat Who Swallowed the Moon” by Heather Dickinson. This marvelous ebook has a fun tale about what happens when Horace the cat sings too much and opens his mouth too wide. Yep, you guessed it, he swallows the moon! All the other animals miss the moon and try to get it out of Horace but nothing works until one little bird has the perfect idea! The illustrations in the book are really detailed and very nice to look at! The story is cute too! This uTales tale scores BIG!
On deck is the heavy hitter “The Snug Snag” by Laurel Heager and illustrated by Claudia Fehr-Levin. This really cute story is about animals living in a hollowed-out tree stump. It is told from the perspective of two children watching the animals in their home. The children are surprised at how many different animals are living inside. This rhyming tale is fun to read and there are great sounds and animations in the book too! SWING and that ball…ER book is OUTTA HERE!
Batting clean-up is the ace “The Boy Who Cried Shmutz” by Sandra Hershenson and Illustrated by Claudia Fehr-Levin. OY, you are going to LOVE this funny Yiddish re-telling of the Boy Who Cried Wolf! The town of Tidyberg always was sparkling clean and the townspeople made sure it stayed that way. Hershel, the town’s shmutz finder thought it would be funny to yell “SHMUTZ” even when there wasn’t any and watch all the cleaners schlep over to clean the smutz up as he laughed his tuchus off. I really love that I learned Yiddish words from the book. I thought the illustrations were really great too! It’s GOING…GOING…IT’S GONE! HOME RUN!
And that’s the game folks! The final score is 0 TV Remotes for The Junky TV Shows and 5 bookworms for The Ebooks from uTales!
