Wee Ones Wednesday | #CYBILS2023 Book Reviews 12.13.2023

The closest we could come to creating a “theme” for this week’s featured board book and fiction picture book is to say they are about love. These books are for readers who

❤️ big machines.

❤️ building and construction

❤️ family and culture

❤️ spending quality time together.

Bottom line: there is a lot of love in these “little” books.

Pamela Thompson @ What We’re Reading Now – It’s time to build! This is not just for young learners who love big trucks and machines. Fun facts and its history are explained, and adults will learn facts that they might never learn anywhere else. The newest machinery like construction robots and remote controlled machines are also included. Full of useful information yet highly entertaining, this board book is a must have for future engineers and builders and anyone who loves construction. Curious kids who love watching buildings go up will love this book.


Brooke @ GoodreadsPlátanos are Love is a tribute to family and heritage. It is a beautifully-illustrated family love story that blends a wonderful mix of Spanish and English in a way most anyone can understand.
