PICTURE BOOKS: Blackout by John Rocco AND Gilbert Goldfish Wants a Pet by Kelly DiPucchio


A busy contemporary family experiences a blackout and in the experience they rediscover what matters to them. Very simple text and beautiful pictures. Great book for new readers to test their skills.

Gilbert Goldfish Wants a Pet

Such a cute story about a goldfish who desperately wants a pet. But the one he gets may be more dangerous than he realizes.

I don't want to ruin the surprise on this one, but I will say this is great for a read-aloud, especially with kindergarten as they start to read the pictures and guess what is going to happen next before you reveal the surprise at the end. Great fun!
