Welcome to the May and June 2013 issue of Through the Looking Glass Children’s Book Reviews. I have put together a wonderful collection of reviews for you for this issue, and I hope you enjoy reading the reviews as much as I have enjoyed writing them.
Mermaids and Sea Monsters: For this issue's special feature I look at books about mermaids and sea monsters for readers of all ages. Here readers will find picture books, novels and novelty books that tell stories about these water loving beings and creatures. Some of them will be nice and some will be downright nasty!
Summer is here! At long last the cold and wet days are behind us and children can look forward to many weeks of sunshine and play time outdoors. Some families begin the season by visiting their local pool or by going to the beach. Meals are eaten outside, barbecues are fired up, and summer vacations are planned and anticipated. Celebrate the summer season with some wonderful books for readers of all ages.
