Geisel Honor 2017 - not suitable for a readaloud with wiggly toddlers, but this early chapter-style book for beginning readers deserves the honor for providing an engaging and encouraging story for kids who are at that reading level. ( )

The Ratso Brothers want to be tough--but they find out it isn't so easy. Highly recommended. ( )

Our kids like the Ratsos books. This is the second one we've read and it was fun like the first. Now, instead of saying "rats" when something goes wrong, they say "Ratsos"! ( )

I love the Ratso brothers and their father! This book brings up complicated life issues in a subtle way. It brings up so many great talking points such as abandonment, bullying, and commitment. ( )
