The last round of library books I brought home for my kids weren’t that popular with them, so most of what we’ve been reading have been our old favorites from our own bookshelves. I’m hoping my memory & searching hasn’t failed me, but I’ve tried to list some new-to-the-blog ones we’ve been enjoying:
George and the Dragon by Chris Wormell
I have no idea why this didn’t make it on our Favorite Picture Books list, because it definitely should have. A brain freeze that made me forget it? Both kids love it, and both have memorized huge portions of the text. The fact that they get to roar like a dragon during the recitation is a huge bonus.
Little Blue Truck Board Book by Alice Schertle; illustrated by Jill McElmurry
If I was rewriting the Favorite Board Books post, this one would make it. A gift from grandma, they love the pictures, and the fun rhymes, and the opportunity to make so many fun barnyard animal sounds. Plus honk like a dump truck.
Little Pookie by Sandra Boynton
Really, any of the Little Pookie books, but this one has the fun line about wearing daddy’s shirt, which is hi-lar-i-ous to my two.
Machines at Work Board Book by Byron Barton
I can’t remember if it was Anne or Jessica who gave me the heads-up on this one, but my son loved it for the longest time. Now he’s liking trying to read the words of it, so the appeal has continued somewhat.
