Baby Bettys: I Had Trouble In Getting To Solla Sollew by Dr. Seuss (BLOG TOUR!)

unnamed

We are thrilled to be a part of this Dr. Seuss celebration! If you haven’t heard about Dr. Seuss’ newest book (YES, I SAID NEW!!!), listen up, because this is exciting news:

A
In the Fall of 2013, an original manuscript with accompanying sketches by Dr. Seuss, aka Ted Geisel, was discovered in the La Jolla, California home of the late beloved children’s author. That complete manuscript was for the picture book, WHAT PET SHOULD I GET?, and will be published by Random House Children’s Books on July 28, 2015. It is the first original new Dr. Seuss book since the publication of the last book of Dr. Seuss’s career, Oh, the Places You’ll Go! in 1990. WHAT PET SHOULD I GET? captures the excitement of a classic childhood moment—choosing a pet—and features the brother and sister characters that Dr. Seuss drew in One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish.

How awesome is that???

To celebrate the release of this book, many blogs were given a specific Dr. Seuss book to review as a way to appreciate and acknowledge all of his classic stories. We have read quite a few Dr. Seuss books, but most of them were the most recent releases. It was fun to read an older book that we had never read before…

Baby Bettys: HAPPY BIRTHDAY, CUPCAKE! by Terry Border

When we were asked to review this book, we freaked out! Honestly, I have never seen the girls so excited to receive a book in the mail before!

These books are MUST HAVES for anyone with children!

 SYNOPSIS:

What’s a cupcake to do when she needs to plan her birthday party? In this hilarious, kid-friendly homage to food and birthdays, Cupcake runs through tons of ideas while her best friend, Blueberry Muffin, finds reasons why they won’t work: Soup gets seasick; Donut melts in the sun; someome might get squashed during musical chairs; and Cupcake is not very good at limbo (her icing might get sliced off!). Just as Cupcake is ready to crumble, Blueberry Muffin has one last idea that just might save the day.

With laugh-out-loud visual gags (like a band made up of beans–the musical fruit, of course), this book is sure to put a birthday smile on any kid’s face (and on adult faces as well). 

 According to the Baby Bettys upon finishing the book:

“I hope my party will be as cool as Cupcake’s!” 

“But the food in our kitchen doesn’t talk!”
