Life in Orange County
New on our Bookshelf: Bruce’s Big Move
The chiclets have loved the “Bruce” series since “Mother Bruce” was first released last year. Last month, the last one, “Bruce’s Big Move” by Ryan T. Higgins, dropped and the chiclets are all about it – so huge thanks to Disney-Hyperion for sending us a copy!!! Yes, it’s made for chiclets ages 3-5 years old, but my 6 and 9 year olds have read it over and over. And it’s one book that never goes into the donation pile.
About Bruce’s Big Move
After the events of Hotel Bruce, our favorite curmudgeonly bear shares his home with not only his four geese, but three rowdy mice besides! Fed up with their shenanigans, Bruce sets off to find a rodent-free household. But as usual, nothing goes quite according to plan…
A hilarious sequel for fans of the previous Bruce books, as well as a standalone discovery for new readers, Bruce’s next reluctant adventure is sure to keep kids giggling.
The chiclets love that Bruce is a bit of a grump – but he has a heart of gold (even if it’s hidden away). He’s a great character, the illustrations are very detailed and the stories always keep you cheering for him.
As mamá, I love that the book is big because it makes for a great bedtime reading. It’s also great for little chiclets just learning to read because of the short sentences. Plus, major vocabulary builder with words like “rodents” and “pesky.”
