Book Fan Friday - Love, Splat

Pin It now!
Three A's and a C

I missed Book Fan Friday last week! Eek! I'm going to get caught up today though. And I am going to be doing things a little different for the next few weeks so I don't miss another BFF post. I usually start reading a new book to Dawson on Saturday and then post about it on the following Friday. That way if Dawson really liked the book (like The Foot Book which I talk about way too much lately but Dawson absolutely loves it. Or Baby Cakes which has been a favorite of ours for months now) I can write about it. Or if he didn't like the book (like There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Bat) I can write about that, too. But things are very hectic around here lately (we are in the middle of moving from Utah to California and my hubby is still deployed which means I'm pretty much doing it by myself!) so I have decided to pick out the books we are going to read this month, write about them and then schedule them to post. So right now I have all of my BFF posts scheduled for the rest of the month! If I think about it or have time I might come back after we have read the books and add what Dawson (and me!) thought about them.

Let's move on, shall we?

I'm going to back track a little. Last week (the post that I skipped) we read Baby, I Love You by Karma Wilson (she also wrote Baby Cakes which I strongly recommend for reading to babies/toddlers).

To be honest I was disappointed with this book. It was nowhere near as good as I thought it was going to be. Dawson thought it was ok, but he didn't get excited when I read it like he usually does if he really likes a book.

This week we read Love, Splat by Rob Scotton.

I love this book! I thought it was really cute. (I also love Merry Christmas, Splat.) Dawson liked looking at the illustrations in this book, but it's a little too long for him and he gets bored, I guess. I'm not sure that I was able to finish reading him this book at all. He read it to me a few times though. (He is a much faster reader and he skips pages. *lol*)

To see what others have been reading head on over to Three A's and a C and don't be shy, link up. :-)

Is there a record for how many different links are in one blog post? Whatever it is, I think I just broke it!

Just the look of the Splat book makes me want to get it. And I'll totally go see if the library here has Baby Cakes. Good luck with the move! Wish I was there to be able to help!

Oh Splat does sound really good. I am always on the look out for new books. Usually Jacob wants to read any Thomas book,

It sounds like a cute book- the 2nd one! Chicka Chicka Boom Boom is my son's all-time favorite!
