Team LT Reads: Next We Have Sponge Bob's Colourful Self

In honour of Logan starting school tomorrow, I thought I'd post up an edition of Team LT Reads.

1) Next - Michael Crichton
October 2007 - Harper
Review by Terry

2 out of 5 stars

Michael Crichton is my favourite author, but this book was a disappointment. Too many characters being introduced way too late in the book. And a subject that held no interest for me. I read it all the way through because Crichton has written some of the best stories I've read, but unfortunately I wouldn't recommend this one.

2) The Under Valued Self - Elaine N. Aron, PhD
March 2010 - Little, Brown and Company
Review by Tawny

2 out of 5 stars

I won this book in an online giveaway, so it wasn't one that I would have chosen to read in the first place. I'm not really into the self-help genre of reading. There were a few good ideas in there for making connections with loved ones stronger. Overall, I just think this book was oversimplified and had some seriously strange suggestions (like holding a conversation with an imagined real person living inside of you - what?). I'll admit though, I'm not on the self-help, talk/hug it out bandwagon, so it just sounded silly to me. I'm sure plenty of people out there would get more benefit from this kind of read.

3) Lost in Time: A Medieval Adventure - Steven Banks and The Artifact Group
January 2006, Simon Spotlight/Nickelodeon
Review by Logan

5 out of 5 stars

I borrowed this book from the library and love it. Sponge Bob and Patrick are funny. Every time I go to the library I want to take this book home with me again and again.

4) The Backyardigans: Jungle Colors - Nancy Parent (Illustrated by Susan Hall)
December 2005, Simon Spotlight/ Nickelodeon
Review by Lane

5 out of 5 stars

I don't really want mommy to read this book to me. I just like to pick it up, chew it a bit and look at all the colourful pictures. This is the book that I pick out of the pile every morning to look at. It's my favourite!


Logan's first day of pre-school is tomorrow. I'm sure he'll be fine, but I'm going to be a blubbering mess. Terry has taken the day off to help me through it and celebrate our little man. Logan is such a big boy now.

Good luck on the preschool. I haven't read that Sponge Bob book, but my boys aren't fans of the Backyardigans because they think they sing too much.
