I love when good things come together in order to make something great. Pinkalicious is a pretty well-known character in our family. My 5 year old loves everything pink, frilly, flowy and princessy. That being said, she can relate pretty well to these books. When Pinkalicious combined with St. Patrick’s Day (my favorite) in her latest book, Emeraldalicious, I knew we were going to love it.

In this book, Pinkalicious and her brother Peter decide to take a trip to their favorite park. But when they arrive, they discover that the park isn’t as clean and green as it used to be. To make matters worse, Pinkalicious’s favorite wand breaks! Luckily, Pinkalicious knows just what to do. She makes a new wand out of some sticks and flowers, creating a pinkerrific wand, one with magical powers to make all their wishes come true. Piles of trash magically transform into castles and automobiles and more! Together, Pinkalicious and Peter take turns using the wand to make wishes – showing their love for all things green and making the park a more pinkatastic place. Pinkalicious shows the world that with a little imagination, and a lot of love, the world can always be emeraldalicious.

My favorite part is that while reading it, you realize that your child is learning several valuable things. They’re learning that the stuff we throw away doesn’t just disappear. Many kids don’t really understand that concept fully. They also learn all about recycling and re-using items in different ways. As if the book wasn’t fun enough on it’s own, Harpercollins has some fun extra’s on there site, like how to Host an Emeraldalicious party with these greenatastic tips!

While I haven’t yet read the first book in the acclaimed Cold Cereal Saga. Mad genius Adam Rex is back with the second book where three kids who must save the world from the diabolical schemes of an evil breakfast cereal company, which has been luring magical creatures to our world through a rift in the time-space continuum. (Really!)

Any reader that is into fantasy and/or comical reads will adore this book. Around 400 pages, it’s a surprisingly quick read. Hard to believe that the Goodco company is selling cereal with NEW! Intellijuice to turn kids into a zombie army! How about the fact that they kidnapped the Queen of England and replaced her with two goblins in a queen suit. This book will have your kids laughing and their imagination in overdrive. Such a great way to get kids to LOVE reading. Careful though, you might just like this book as much as your kids do!
