Arnold and Louise is a cute new series hitting bookshelf this month. They are fairly easy to read chapters that are short and perfect for an independent reader. There might be a few words they will need help on but this series will fun for them to read. The stories are also short enough that they would be a fun read aloud for story time or bedtime. Right now there are 2 books in the series The Great Louweezie and Lost and Found. I hope there are more coming because they are such cute stories. They remind me of the Frog and Toad series I read when I was little. There are lessons to be learned in each book with forgiveness in the end. I know the kids at the elementary school will enjoy seeing these for check out at the school library. I think they might be some hot ticket books that don’t stay on the shelves for long.
Arnold is a sweet big bear who likes naps, his marbles and his best friend Louise. He has lots of fun times and adventures with Louise.
Louise is a cute spunky chipmunk. She can be loud and you just never know what’s going to happen next when your hanging out with her.
I can’t wait to read more books from this adorable book series. I know if these had been around when my girls were beginning to read we would have bought them all and had the stories memorized from reading them so much!
The Great Louweezie : Arnold is a large black bear. His best friend, Louise, is a small chipmunk. But one day, Louise insists she is NOT Louise–she’s the Great Louweezie, and she can predict the future! But when the Great Louweezie’s demands begin to test Arnold’s patience, the game feels much less fun. What will happen if friendship isn’t in their future?
Lost and Found : When Louise borrows Arnold’s newly found treasure, he’s sure he’ll never see it again. After all, she loses just about everything he lends her. Louise swears she hasn’t lost it, but to get it back, she sends Arnold on a treasure hunt of her own–or is it a wild goose chase?
