I am really loving the Burton the Scarecrow series that we were sent for review.  I love that you can buy the whole series, or just individual books and I think that they would make great gift ideas!  If you have a young one in your life, you could actually buy this set of books to help to building a great home library!  
You might wonder why you would want a set of books "about a scarecrow" but guess what - that is just a small part.  The MORAL compass of each book far outweighs the scarecrow of it all... The scarecrow character just makes it more "kid friendly"  but the message is something that many of the adults in the world could learn from!  

Book 3 - Burton's Harvest Party :  With Grandma Green aw…

Burton the Scarecrow has recently made his way into our house and let me tell you- these books are super cute!  I was trying to figure out just how exciting a scarecrow would be and V.A. Boeholt has done a great job in keeping us entertained.  We were sent the 5 book series and I fell in love with Burton as soon as we met him.  
Burton is awesome and a great role model for kids to have.  This post is going to share the first 2 books of the series and you will have to come back to learn of the last 3.   If you don't fall in love with the illustrations in the book, you will for sure fall in love with the stories you get to read!

Broxton is really getting more and more into reading and that makes me so happy!  Right now we are all about " what does S-T-O-P spell"  or "what does O-P-E-N spell"  every sign he can see, we have to discuss...   That is when we are riding around... Once we get home, we read books and have decided that we will start a book journal for the summer...  (We have never left the library with less than 5 books each time!)  What I love is that Disney Books has released the Super Hero "World of Reading" books and that makes little man happy- so that makes mama happy too!  

Up first - The Amazing Spider-Man 2 - Fully Charged.
This book has us meet Peter Parker aka Spider Man and learn of a guy named Max. …

Although summer break has started here (and most other places by now, right?)  it doesn't mean that it is time to put the books up. In my opinion, it is more important to keep reading books DURING the summer!!! Stimulate the mind, my friend, explore and discover new worlds and characters!   Or - you can be like us and revisit characters we know and love...  I was happy when we were sent the latest Disney Book Group Planes book to review - Disney Planes - Fire and Rescue :  Dusty's Big Job and we loved it!
This was such a super cute book!   I loved the message behind it and as always, I loved the illustrations!   In Dusty's Big Job, we see Dusty as he has been told he can not fly fast (and will no longer be able …
