Bedtime on Noah's Ark book

Bedtime on Noah's Ark
Written by & illustrated by Lee Holland
Okay, everyone, I have an extremely delightful bedtime board book for you today, and to make it even more lovely, Bedtime on Noah's Ark was written by a father/son duo, Brock and Declan Eastman! Read on to learn a little about their inspiring book. A big thank you to Harvest House Publishers for sharing this book with our family in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions of this book are my own. Many of you are likely familiar with the Biblical story of Noah's Ark, in which Noah built an ark and filled it with animals, two of every kind, to ride out the great flood. In Bedtime on Noah's Ark, Brock and Declan have taken a few liberties with this story in order to show us what a bedtime routine may have looked like for Noah and his animal friends! The book opens with the animals gathered around Noah, listening carefully, and you can almost imagine him saying, "All right, everyone, it's bedtime! What do you need to do first?" We watch the animals get clean and dry, struggle with their pajamas, receive help brushing their teeth, say their prayers, get cozy… Everything that a child might relate to in his or her own bedtime routine! And Brock and Declan nailed a gentle bedtime pace, rolling enough to keep the story moving but soothing enough to make this a relaxing bedtime story. Yes, your children are bound to giggle, and potentially even more like the animal in the story do, but they'll also relish the opportunity to share those giggles, movements, and hopefully rituals with their loving adults as a part of their bedtime routines. You'll also delight in the sweet illustrations from Lee Holland. Holland's depictions show the animals as gentle and kind, always loving and never fierce. I love that Noah and his family are also shown helping the animals through their bedtime routines -- and we laugh every time we see them donning their rain gear to help the animals dry off after bathtime! Parents of small children, be sure to check this one out! Your children may act like animals during their bedtime routines, but I promise you it'll be in the sweetest, most productive way possible!

Sir Cumference: And the First Round Table
Sir Cumference and King Arthur have a big problem. When King Arthur sits down with his knights at his long, rectangular table, the knights on the ends end up having to shout down to the other end in order to be heard. Tasked with finding a better table for the group, Sir Cumference tries a handful of other designs (including square and octagon, and more!), before settling on a circle, the original “round table” for the knights. We also get a cheeky account of how diameter, radius, and circumference got those names. Other books in the series include fractions, 3D shapes, pi, angles, and more. * Mathematical Focus: 2D geometry (other books in the series have different focuses) * Target Audience: Ages 9 and up

The Grapes of Math
Though Tang has a whole slew of mathematical picture books, The Grapes of Math is his first and easily my favorite. He calls this a book of “mind-stretching math riddles,” and that’s an incredibly accurate sub-title. Each spread presents a math puzzle with a challenge to readers to figure out the most efficient way to solve the problem. These creative puzzles push children to look for landmark numbers, group segments together for efficient counting, skip counting, and more, helping children develop their fluency and flexibility to make math easier. * Mathematical Focus: mathematical flexibility, fluency, and problem solving (consistent across the series) * Target Audience: Ages 7 and up
