Can You Growl Like a Bear? by John Butler

Hi there!
Welcome back to another exciting week here at Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers. This week will be chock full of all the fun you've come to expect here at the site and then some. Oh yes, it will be bookish and it will be busy.

To kick things off, we're going a gentler route and exploring another Baby book that found its way to my door courtesy of the folks at Peachtree Publishers (thanks guys!). While it's intended for the wee one's, older folks will get a kick out of the reactions it causes in younger readers. Don't believe me? Check it out for yourself! Today's book of choice is...

John Butler

This is one of those rare children's board books that is great for the little ones for a daytime activity as well as a sleepy time activity. It invites readers to make the sound along with the animals they see on the pages and at the very end gives a sweet good night to send them off to the land of dreams. So while you're both enjoying the adorable pictures, you'll also be engaging their minds and imaginations as they learn which animals make which sounds and try to imitate it. I can only imagine how well this would work for a story time group ...especially one that ends with nap time.

All in all, another cutesy read from the folks that aim to please the ever growing minds of childre the world over, Peachtree Pubishers. I can certainly see this being a popular favorite for all those beginning readers out there just starting to explore the world around well as the parents and guardians who are cultivating our next generation. You're never too young to start engaging that knows where those random thoughts and ideas will lead one day?

Special thanks to Peachtree Publishers for the review copy. (THANKS!) For more information on this title as well as their full catalog be sure to check out their official site (, or follow along on Twitter ( This book was released last month and should be available on a bookstore shelf near you.

Until next time...happy reading!
