Not Inside This House by Kevin Lewis-ESSENTIAL

Lewis, Kevin. Ercolini, David, (Illustrator). Not Inside This House, 40 pgs. Orchard Books (August 2011). $16.99. Language-G; Violence-G; Sexual Content-G. “You’d expect a boy with a name like Livingston Columbus Magellan Crouse to explore. But Livingston Columbus Magellan Crouse doesn’t stop there- he comes home with specimens from his travels! First a bug, then a moose- what will Livingston Columbus Magellan Crouse show up with next? Curious readers are in for an adventure.” We loved this book! We enjoyed the predictability of reading the little boys name every other page, and my kids joined in and read it with me each time. The illustrations are detailed and fun. The text is humorous and exciting. Pre K. EL (K-3). ESSENTIAL. Reviewer: SL.
