Four Fun Pictures Books to Read This Spring.
Yes, I am technically a little bit old to be reading picture books but in my defense:
- Apollo isn’t too old to be read to (are we ever really too old for that?)
- I love reviewing books to share with other families.
Okay, enough of that. Now on to four fun pictures books for your family to read this spring.

Two Kings by Emma Lewis
“When the old king dies, a Duke and Earl find themselves in competition for the throne. Their vanity and greed soon lead them to war. But who will win? And what will happen to the people of the land?”
Two kings is a story of war and loss written at a child’s level. I love the illustrations in this book, some are made with mixed media. The ultimate lesson in Two Kings is how greed and pride can destroy. It ends on a very hopeful note.
The Wobbly Waitress by Lisa Stickley
The Wobbly Waitress is a hilarious story of Mabel the giraffe who, unfortunately, gets hiccups while on the job one day. She is a waitress and I think you can imagine how this tale goes.
Mabel ends up spilling and flinging food all over the cafe. Thankfully, her friends truly care about her and come up with a creative way to help. This book is full of delightful rhymes and descriptions of food. This book has human and animal characters and includes people with different skin tones (an important feature to me in books). This book will delight children ages 3-6.
The Lost Property Office by Emily Rand
The Lost Property Office by Emily Rand is a story that every child can relate to, losing a beloved toy.
Thankfully, this little girl has a family that loves her. After a dream about lost toys, the little girl’s grandpa comes up with an idea about how to find the lost teddy.
The Lost Property Office does a great job of showing a variety of ethnicities and cultures in the illustrations. Apollo loved examining the drawings and finding hidden details.
The Lost Horse by Mark Nicholas
“When the sculpture of a horse disappears from the gallery, everyone is panicked! The police start a countrywide search—where could he be? Has he been stolen? Did he run away? In a village outside the city, young Lyra dreams of having a friend of her very own. So when she hears a knocking at her window and sees the face of a horse peering through the glass, she cannot believe her luck!”
The Lost Horse is a beautiful book about a lonely little girl and a bronze horse. It demonstrates how friendships can grow and develop and how sometimes we need to go out of our comfort zone to make new friends.
The Lost Horse is a great book for ages 5-7.
