#SundayQuestions: Acknowledgments: Waste of ink & paper or interesting aside?


I can see why someone may not be interested in reading this. But I'm not one of those people.

I enjoy reading acknowledgements that the authors have included. It's a nice little thing to read. I love that authors taking the time out to thank those who have helped make their book possible.

For me, it helps break the belief that writing a book is a one person show.

So, do you read the acknowledgements?

Question came from it's a dead blog but still houses these questions. So. I don't think they're the originator of the questions but figured I'd tell that I didn't just pull these questions out of the air.

Title: Luke & Lottie, It's Halloween
Author: Ruh Wielockx

A cheerful and simple story about Halloween for brave ghosts and witches ages 3 and up.It’s Halloween! The twins Luke and Lottie are so excited.They enjoy all the Halloween traditions. Dressing up, carving pumpkins, making sweets, and best of all, going trick-or-treating!


If I ever rate a child's book lower than 4 or 5 stars the book definitely did something wrong. This is the first book that I agree with the age range that is assigned for it.

The artwork is adorable and simple, good for the age range. Since I read this through Amazon I cannot say 100% how the font/size is for the writing in a more kid-book-look so you'll have to view that on your own.

If you teach in a school that allows Halloween themed books for the lower grades... this would fit in nicely. But if not, this works for at home / carry around during the holidays.

Title: Just the Right Size

Who's just the right size? You are! A funny and thought-provoking read-aloud about being tall or small for children ages 3 and up. Did you know a ladybug is just the right size to land on the branch of a tree? That would be difficult for a giraffe. But then, a giraffe is just the right size to reach the highest branches. Did you know that a frog is small enough to perch on a lily pad? A hippopotamus is not (obviously), but he is big enough to scare even a crocodile away! In her latest picture book, Bonnie Grubman explores the basic concepts of big and small by putting all sorts of living creatures in odd oppositions. And you? What are YOU just the right size for?


Cute book that involves comparing sizes that are big and small. Ends with a positive message of being the right size for a hug. Which I thought was a cute way to end the story.
