My girls and I love to read together. We have several times throughout the day that are set up for reading. After breakfast, before nap, after nap, and before bedtime. We love finding new and fun books and that is exactly what Your Alien is. I even teared up a little at the end while reading it (surprise, surprise, I am one sensitive Mama). The fact that it prompted a big group hug after wasn’t so bad either.
My daughters love the inside covers of this book because it shows the alien doing all sorts of different things. They like to point out what he is doing and giggle and laugh at some of them. This book is great for younger kids. I think it teaches about all the fun things that you can do, but also what is really important in life. It has quickly become the most requested bedtime book in our house – and I am not complaining. Purchase Your Alien Here.
In YOUR ALIEN (Sterling Children’s Books, August 2015) by Tammi Sauer, a little boy meets a little alien, and the two become instant friends! They go to school, explore the neighborhood, and have lots of fun. But at bedtime, the alien suddenly grows very sad. Can the boy figure out what his new buddy needs most of all?
