Thoughts on the new books I’ve been reading to my kids this month:
Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site
A birthday gift for my son from Grandma. He’s a big fan, and I don’t mind it. That makes it a winner for this family.
Hugs for You
A birthday gift for my daughter from Grandma. I’m not sure that she likes it so much, as she wants her own book read whenever her brother gets his book read. Either way, it’s super quick to read, and we hug after each page, so that’s a bonus for me. 🙂
A Is for Astronaut: Exploring Space from A to Z
The kids like it, but don’t love it.
Babar’s Museum of Art
I liked this one more than they did, as I tried to remember the artists whose paintings have been adapted to include elephants. Fun intro to the idea of an art museum, but a little more text than my kids want to hear. Even the four-year-old, and he’s got a decent tolerance for listening to books.
Ok, mom confession time. I don’t always like books that don’t have text. This one doesn’t have text, and while I thought the pictures wouldn’t be compelling enough to grab my kids’ attention, I was so wrong. My son LOVES this. The maze pictures are especially appealing for him – he traces his way through each one. I’m on the lookout for a book of easy mazes for him he loves them so much!
Meet Me at the Art Museum: A Whimsical Look Behind the Scenes
(why yes, we were on a museum-book kick.) Super cute, with just the right amount of text for my kids’ attention spans. I loved how it included some of the museum jobs that aren’t always mentioned. (why yes, I did work in a museum before staying home after having my son.)
