Library Reading : Two New Kiddie Books

Share via email

Apparently my boys are just as fickle as me, which is why I love library books!  It is really hard to find a book which appeals to both my boys.  Usually one or the other has lost interest before I get past the third page. 


That being said, imagine my disbelief when I found not one but two books this library trip that are complete winners.  Even better – I haven’t gotten tired of reading them!


Dig, Dogs, Dig – A Construction Tail by James Horvath

This appeals to me on multiple levels. 

First off – there is a blue pup named Max.  (Granted, there was some explaining as to why there was no Green ‘Cooper’). 

Secondly – it is a cute book about construction.  Being that I work in the field, I am always looking for something fun. 

Lastly, he was able to rhyme ‘grader’ and ‘excavator’.  Mr. Horvath is obviously a literary genius.


Twenty Six Pirates – An Alphabet Book by Dave Horowitz

When a dedication starts off thanking  Frank Zappa, the Beastie Boys, House of Pain, Simon & Garfunkel, Bruce Lee and Roy Schedier– you know you have found a gem. 

It is a short read, which is a huge plus when reading a book before bed. 

Each time I read it, I chuckle.   Cooper’s favorite was ‘Pirate Lee.  Needs to Pee’. 

He also wrote a book Twenty Six Princesses.  I can just imagine how adorable that book must be!
