Every night at bedtime, there are three books read. Each kid gets to pick a book and my husband and I take turns reading them – or sometimes our 8 year old will read to us. Our family loves a fun book and our latest favorite is Groovy Joe: Ice Cream and Dinosaurs by Eric Litwin and Tom Lichtenheld!
Meet Groovy Joe, a fun-lovin’, guitar-strummin’, doggy-ice-cream-eatin’ pup as he wrangles three hungry dinosaurs and soon has them singing, grooving, and sharing!
Groovy Joe was living the dream.
He had a spoon and tub of doggy ice cream.
And he started to sing:
Love my doggy ice cream! Love my doggy ice cream!
Eric Litwin, author of the bestselling and beloved Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes, and bestselling artist Tom Lichtenheld, illustrator of Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site, have created a captivating new canine character who will groove his way into readers’ hearts and have them grooving and giggling all the while. In his debut adventure, Groovy Joe faces three roaring dinosaurs hungry for his doggy ice cream! Oh no! But Joe knows just what to do and soon enough he has them all sharing while moving and singing along.
I know that your kids will love Groovy Joe just as much as my kids do! You know it’s a good book when kids (and adults!) of all ages love it. My son has been wanting to bring it to school to show off to his class. If you’re looking for a catchy book with fun illustrations and a character who embodies positivity, creativity, and kindness, Groovy Joe is it! Make sure to check out the Scholastic website where you can listen to the musical performance of the book as well as listen to a copy. And good news – the next Joe story, Disco Party Bow Wow, in Fall 2017! Make sure to follow Scholastic on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram!
