PB & J Review: Just A Duck? & “I’m A Nut”

Happy Friday! 🙂

I’m starting a new blog post series called “PB & J” Reviews, which stands for “Picture Book & Jam (think music) Reviews”. I read up to 25 books to the munchkins on a weekly basis and I also listen to kiddie music every single day (semi-groan), so I thought I’d share some fun finds that are worth your time to check out. (And just FYI, I don’t get anything from doing these reviews; I’m just sharing these products because I like them.) So here we go!

Picture Book Review: Today’s picture book is Just A Duck? by Carin Bramsen. You can buy it here on Amazon.com or check it out at your friendly neighborhood library (which is where we get all our books for free!). What drew me to this book were the pictures. For example:

You really need to see this book up close and personal to get the full WOW effect!

Not only are the pictures amazingly cute, they are so life-like. The duck’s fur just pops out from the page and the water droplets look real enough to make you want to grab an umbrella! The story, about a duck who thinks he is a cat, is just as charming and engaging. As you can guess, C (and her chick) loved the book. This would be a great springtime read for toddlers and kindergarteners.

Jam Review: Today’s jam is “I’m A Nut”. This is a short song told from the perspective of an acorn (hence the title). I think E and C like it simply for the one line, “I’m a nut.” 🙂 I like listening to it in the car on those days the munchkins drive me a little nutty. 😉

Let me know what you think of today’s PB & J Review!
