First on the list is the Life of John Lennon. I have loved the Beatles for as long as I can remember and it's interesting to read about John Lennon in the children's book version. (Yes, there are lots of details omitted). I'm truly an awful singer but I try to sing the song lyrics that are within the book. My inability to hold a tune won't help my kids appreciate music, but I'm hopeful reading about one of the greatest artists will!
I LOVE this book! It's most definitely my favorite of the most obscure. Since I'm a child of the '80s, and grew up with Weird Al's parodies, it's funny to think of him as a children's author. However, this book really hits home for many adults because I think so many of us remain unsure of what we want to do when we grow up! I also love that it gets the kids thinking about their future profession. And best of all, it makes us giggle!
Weird Al's second attempt was not quite as good as his first, but honestly, Billy is such a lovable kid that it makes me love this book. And it, too, has a wonderful lesson behind i.
Marcel the Shell is most definitely not one of my favorites. However, this book makes both my husband and kids laugh like crazy. And, really, there's nothing better than a good laugh! So, for that reason, it makes it one of my favorites!
