May Bookshelf – Six Titles to Check Out

We were sent some of these titles for review purposes. As always, all opinions are honest and my own. This post contains affiliate links.

We have had a busy month and I haven’t had a lot of time to spend writing. I couldn’t let the month end without sharing a few new titles with you though. I won’t lie. I am currently behind on my Good Reads yearly challenge. I want to read 52 books for myself this year and I’m currently four books behind. I started and didn’t finish a few this month but think it was more of my mood than the writers. I’ve included the one book that I finished for myself as well as six titles to share with your littles. Let me know what you’re reading that I should check out.

Wrong Time Wrong Place – I really enjoyed the style this book was written in. It was a really good story that walked mystery and sci-fi really well. This book merged mystery and time travel in a way that I have never read before. A lot of authors can’t do both well. This author did. She crafted a world that was believable and left us wanting more. I picked it up randomly at the library and read it in two days. If you’re looking for an easy read that will pull you into the story this is it. Also, it is a great reminder of the power of a mother’s love.

Butt or Face – Want a fun way to teach your littles about animals? Science has never been as silly as when playing Butt or Face. Not only will you be able to identify the butt or faces of a number of animals you might not be familiar with but you will also learn new animal facts. If you’re little is like mine then this will lead to a rabbit hole of animal facts being learned and shared.

The ABCs of Asian American History – Can we start with how amazing the cover of this book is? I love the diversity of the Asian-Americans included. Many times, we think only of Chinese Americans or Japanese Americans but there are so many different types of Asian Americans and this book helps us learn about many of them along with their contributions. I learned a lot right alongside JustaBXgirl.

Art and Joy: Best Friends Forever – This is a wonderful book to add to any artist’s personal library. We all hear the art bully’s voice in our heads at times and this book reminds us that we are so much more powerful. It reminds us that art and joy really do belong together forever. This is by the author that brought us How To Spot An Artist. You might remember we featured it here.

You Need To Chill – This is a sweet read where Bill’s little sister’s classmates are wondering what happened to Bill. They ask questions about where he has gone and what has happened. Little sister very matter of factly lets them know that Bill is now her sister Lily. She shares that it was a shock when Bill became Lily but at the end of the day, not much else has changed about their relationship and Lily’s personality.

Robby The Dyslexic Taxi and the Airport Adventure – This book is a sweet short read. Robby the Taxi is surrounded by supportive friends that understand he can succeed at anything if he has support. Because he has been shown support and figured out ways to achieve his goals in the past, he is able to be successful even when he faces an unknown route. My favorite part is that when faced with an unknown route Robby did get scared. That is normal. He didn’t let his fear freeze his though. That is bravery. He trusted that he could figure it out and he did.
