Vacation Bible Snooze

It is so much fun when I get the opportunity to review a children's book. My kids love to read and new books are such a treat.

I have never read a book by Mike Thaler (the creator of the Black Lagoon series) so I didn't know what to expect with this book.

I loved this book. The story depicts what a lot of kids are probably thinking when they are told they have to go to school in the summer. The illustrations really capture the story. My girls loved this story, too. Check out a glimpse into the book below.

It is time for a FIRST Wild Card Tour book review! If you wish to join the FIRST blog alliance, just click the button. We are a group of reviewers who tour Christian books. A Wild Card post includes a brief bio of the author and a full chapter from each book toured. The reason it is called a FIRST Wild Card Tour is that you never know if the book will be fiction, non~fiction, for young, or for old...or for somewhere in between! Enjoy your free peek into the book!

You never know when I might play a wild card on you!
