Sign Here: Twenty-Two Unofficially Official Pull-Out Forms for Dreams, Pets, Pocket Money, Feelings, Secrets and So Much More Paperback by Gabrielle Djanogly and illustrated by Adele Mildred [Review and Giveaway-US/CANADA]

My thoughts:  Ever had your child sit down and play "office" creating a plethora of official forms for various ones in the family to sign consenting to a slew of different deeds, disasters, and desires? I have when mine were growing up and the memories are sweet.

This book.... SIGN HERE..... is a collection of fantastic forms, declarations, invitations, apologies, and whatever that the creative and organized and award presenting child will have a fantastically wonderful time using for family and friends. You can copy them to your heart's content so they may be used a multitude of occasions.

Cute book, and such fun.

About the book:  It's hard to apologize. It's hard to say thank you. Sometimes it's even hard to invite someone over for a birthday party. This cleverly designed, slyly bureaucratic collection of "forms" makes dealing with these childhood issues a great deal less awkward and a whole lot more fun. Issued in impressively official script and language by the Department of Regret, Remorse, and Reconciliation, the Union of Childhood Revenue, the Ministry of Dreams, and other indispensable offices, these forms help kids say some of the hard stuff: "I've eaten the last piece of...," "You're the best sister in the world," "Thank you for buying me stuff I need," "Thank you for buying me stuff I don't need." And, because it's important to record even your most private feelings, there are forms to verify that one's parents are, indeed, aliens; that the surprise birthday gift was not actually a surprise; that you had a really scary dream; and other conundrums not easily expressed in person. Highly adaptable to meet the needs and desires of any boy or girl, these forms can be endlessly photocopied--and of course filed away by parents and grandparents for future reminiscences and chuckles.

  2. I think The Great Wave is a beautiful hardback book which children will appreciate the majesty of art and shades of color in the crashing waves.

  5. My top choice would be FUNNY BIRDS, because our grandson LOVES popup books (so do I, for that matter! haha) and he loves our (Gramma & PopPop's) cockatiel bird and also our cat. So he would love that book. I also think he would love OSKAR bird book too.
