We’ve branched out a bit since last month, and aren’t reading alphabet books almost exclusively.
B Is for Bulldozer: A Construction ABC
Our one new alphabet book for the month. Both kids really like it – all the fun illustrations, and how there is an overall story behind the individual letters. The rhymes themselves are so-so, and I doubt that I’ll ever get this one out from the library again.
And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street
I’m assuming I read this classic Dr. Seuss title when I was a child, because some of the illustrations were vaguely familiar, and the title/refrain was extremely familiar. But beyond those hints of “I’m sure I’ve read this way back when,” it was almost a new book. And it was definitely new to the kids. They like it, but don’t love it.
An old favorite, but my daughter has recently become obsessed with it. She demands that I read it to her before her nap and before bedtime. She has to point out the mouse on every page (I’m not going to confess precisely how long it took me to notice that he moves around the room). She also has to take it into her crib with her. And she calls it “night moon?” So cute.
The Tall Book of Nursery Tales
Specifically, the Gingerbread Boy tale (read by momma), and the Three Little Pigs tale (read by daddy). The rest of the book? Who cares – Gingerbread Boy and the Big Bad Wolf are where the action is.
