B is for Bookworm
Book-loving mommy-to-be! Recently enjoyed The Hobbit, Becoming, and The Marvelous Magic of Miss Mabel.
5.5 / 7.0

This book is about making new friends, helping each other find new homes, and being busy! I love that Ruff found new friends to live by and that they were all happy working hard together. This book is pretty cute and I love how the animals all express themselves when they’re happy, excited, or trying to get each other’s attention. :) This story would be great to talk about emotions and how those, in turn, lead to certain actions. Cute illustrations, too!
