Potty Time - Caroline Jayne Church

Potty Time!
Caroline Jayne Church
Cartwheel Books an Imprint of
Scholastic
ISBN 9780545350808


This book only has 8 double page spreads. But it has a giant "FLUSH ME!" button that comes through on each page. And children will laugh and giggle and love pushing that button. It is a fairly simple story and the illustrations are in Caroline Jayne Church's characteristic style that we love as a family. Caroline Jayne Church is one of our favorite children's illustrators. This book is simple and fun and gets the point across. I don't think it will be a great potty training tool, but it will always bring a smile and laugh from children.

Let's Get Dressed! - Caroline Jayne Church

Let's Get Dressed!

Reading is always in fashion! Or that is what the back of this book states and I agree. Caroline Jayne Church has some amazing books - some of our family favorites that our children have gone back to over and over again to read. The illustrations by Church have a similar feel and look. But in this tabbed board book, there is a flap with a reveal on every page that follows the stages of getting dressed from underwear to shoes. It is a wonderful new book by an amazing author and illustrator.

Caroline Jayne Church is one of our favorite children's illustrators, but among our favorites from the books she illustrated are some of those she wrote also. This book falls into that category. It is a wonderful bedtime story, with CJC's characteristic illustrations. The joy and emotions she captures in her illustrations are wonderful; my children and wife love her books and this will be a new favorite.

In the last few years our family has read a number of books written and illustrated by Caroline Jayne Church. This is the first thing that we have read that she has illustrated for another author. It was just as wonderful and I am sure will be a family favorite. It is a great story with amazing illustrations. It will be great to share with any child in your life you love. It will affirm them, encourage them and make them laugh. It is a wonderful little book.

How Do I Love You? - Marion Dane Bauer and Caroline Jayne Church

How Do I Love You?
Marion Dane Bauer (Author)
Caroline Jayne Church (Illustrator)

Cartwheel Books an imprint of

Scholastic

ISBN 9780545072700


Between the two authors they have written well over 100 books for children. This is the first book by Marion Dane Bauer we have read, and about the 10th by Caroline Jayne Church. CJ Church is one of our favorite authors and illustrators. And based on this book we will need to track down more by Marion Dane Bauer. The illustrations are unmistakably in Caroline Jayne Church's style and yet they use a much brighter pallet than some of her other books. It is a wonderful little book and it will quickly become a family favorite.

Cartwheel Books an imprint of

Scholastic
ISBN 9780545281461

Caroline Jane Church's books are some of my children's favorites. She has authored and/or illustrated over 90 books. I doubt we will get to read them all, but we have loved all we have read. This new series is based upon known nursery rhymes with the first two titles being The More We Get Together and You Are My Sunshine. With shiny metallic covers children are immediately attracted to the books, and Caroline's characteristic illustrations, children's faces and actions, will draw in young children who will love to have the books read again and again. And children will also sit and flip through them by themselves over and over again. The 12 pages in this board book convey so much emotion and fun, children will love them.

Here Comes Christmas! - Caroline Jayne Church

Here Comes Christmas!
Caroline Jayne Church

Scholastic

ISBN 9780545118170

Caroline Jayne Church has a wonderful style when it comes to sight and sensory books for young readers. This is the fourth of her books that we have enjoyed together as a family. Almost every page has something to experience by touch and/or sound. The book will spark imagination and wonder, as a boy dreams on Christmas eve about what he will receive the next day, and flaps to open his presents with him. It is a fun story that will be read again and again.

ISBN 9780545118163

The books in this series by Caroline Jayne Church are wonderful. The first one we read was Here Comes Halloween! and now we have this one. These books are wonderfully illustrated and have great stories. It is the story of a young girl's Easter - finding hidden eggs, following a jelly bean trail and finding a big surprise. There are textures to touch and items embedded in the pages for younger children to explore and the story will keep older children entertained.

Here Comes Halloween! - Caroline Jayne Church

Here Comes Halloween!
Caroline Jayne Church

Scholastic

ISBN 9780545118156


This is a great little book for the Halloween season. It is about a little boy who is trying to decide what to be for Halloween. Either through dress up or his imaginations, he plays out a number of scenarios. He becomes a pirate, a dinosaur, a bat, a robot, a monkey and a superhero. It is a bright, colourful, fun-filled book, with great illustrations, and sections of each page have textures, or flaps or reflective surfaces for the younger children to interact with. It is a little book full of big-time fun for your little ones.

Pip Squirrel is going about his day when he notices the leaves on the tree are changing color. He is so shocked, he lets go of the tree and falls. Then he attempts to collect the leaves and reattach them to the tree. His mother, when she discovers what he is up to, smiles and explains about the tree. It is a great little story. The squirrels look more like dogs with funny tails but other than that the illustrations are great. The trees and the leaves in full bloom are extremely well done. This is a fun, bright colorful book to share with children.
