I was recently sent several books from LeRue Press to review and my favorite one was called Pick Me, Pick Me by Elizabeth Horton. It is a delightful story about a little boy, Miguel, who knows all the answers and wonders why his teacher doesn’t call on him for every answer. It is a great book to help students understand how they have to wait their turn and that every student needs a chance to answer questions. As a former teacher and a parent, I really loved the message in this book. My two daughters loved this book as well. They have asked for me to read it with them several nights in a row! You can find Pick Me, Pick Me by Elizabeth Horton on Amazon. You can also order directly from the publisher LeRue Press and the illustrator will draw a picture of Miguel and sign the book, too.

Naming Your Baby by Ruby Szudajski
Naming Your Baby will appeal to many parents even if they already have a name for their child. It includes the top 1000 names as compiled by the Social Security Administration, limericks using many of the names (not the bawdy, naughty type…these are all family friendly) and some meanings of name also. Written by an 86 year “young” great-grandmother, it’s a fun book and will be followed with a new edition for next year.
