Amy Krouse Rosenthal

We recently re-read "It's Not Fair" by Amy Krouse Rosenthal and it reminded me how much I love her books.  I then realized that I had only read about half the books she has published and am now on a quest to read the other half.  Her books are quirky, cute and children love them.  Many have been on the New York Times bestseller list.  She has a cute website where you can check out for more information.

It's Not Fair -- One of my favorites to read to my kids when they are having a rough day with each other. Children wonder: "Why'd I get the smaller half? Why don't you yell at her? Why does my team always lose? Why can't we have a pet giraffe?"  The light-hearted illustrations make the book a humorous read.

Little Pea -- a little pea is forced to eat candy for dinner, which he hates, all so he can get spinach for dessert.  A fun book picky eaters everywhere will celebrate.
Little Hoot -- after a busy day playing with his friends a small owl is forced to stay awake by his parents because that's what owls do.
Little Oink -- a little pig tries to stay neat and clean in a world of messy pigs.
One of Those Days -- A list of all those difficult days that we all have: a Not Big Enough Day, a Gutter Ball Day, a Nobody's Listening Day. Presented in a humorous way, a great book for a child having a bad day.

Yes Day! -- A wonderful idea, one day when parents say "Yes" to everything.
Duck, Rabbit! -- a clever illustration that seems to switch between a duck and a rabbit provides for a humorous discussion between two narrators.
