Mommy Is a Soft, Warm Kiss by Rhonda Gowler Greene, illustrated by Maggie Smith
Picked out by my daugher, and we read it every. day. until it “had” to go back to the library. Had to, because I didn’t try to renew it as I was tired of reading it. My love for it is not as strong as my daughter’s, who has already stated that she wants to get it again.
Pink Cupcake Magic by Katherine Tegen, illustrated by Kristin Verner
Also picked out my daughter (if there is a pink cover, she grabs it). Another one that will be going back to the library without being renewed. This one does keep her brother more entertained however, because of CUPCAKES!! And the big brother getting his reward at the end. 😉
Corduroy by Don Freeman
Somehow we’d never read this classic before. Now we have, and both kids liked it. Neither of them requested it again though.
I get a kick out of these math-themed books. The illustrations are wonderful too!
Green Lantern vs. the Meteor Monster!
This one is bad, but unfortunately it was one my son picked out. He does love his superheroes! I don’t mind the superhero books so much when he’s the one reading them, but this one isn’t one he can manage. It’ll go back to the library next time, as I hid it back into the library bag after only one reading – it’s just that bad.
Bedtime Math: A Fun Excuse to Stay Up Late by Laura Overdeck, illustrated by Jim Paillot
This is a work in progress, and my son loves it! We don’t read it at bedtime though. I like how it’s structured, and how there are different levels of problems – one of the levels always works for my son. Sometimes it’s the “wee ones” and sometimes it’s the next level up, but it’s fun.
