We have read some fun books this week. If you have young kids, particularly in the infant to three year-old range, make sure to check back on our blog on Monday and Tuesday for two great board book give aways.
Cock-a-doodle-doo Barnyard Hullabaloo. The Bibliophile chose this out of the catalog we received when we got our give away prize of Five Little Pumpkins in the mail. We were happy to find a copy at the library, and it has been well received. It is a nice length - includes a lot of animals and fun text for a picture book, but not so much that you groan when they choose it off the shelf at bedtime.
Big Bigger Biggest The Bibliophile picked this up from a table at the library. The only text are the descriptive words (deep, deeper, deepest, etc.), which appear in combination with fold out flaps. It's a bit simple for him, but he enjoys it. If you want another book like this, he has always enjoyed his Curious George bigger smaller board book, which has similar flaps.
Other favorites which have seen some repeat reading this week:
I'm really trying to avoid buying this, but it might be inevitable. He often opts for one chapter of Rally Race instead of a pile of shorter books at bedtime. We've read it 1,000 times.
Are You My Mother?
A classic. We had read it many times before, but now he seems to be connecting with it more - understanding the full storyline and laughing in the appropriate places. It's a nice reading level for him to read aloud right now too.
In the Town All Year Round. This was his favorite book for a long time, so we used to post about it often, but it has been awhile since I have mentioned it here. It is such a fun book, with so many ways to read it -- playing I spy, answering the questions posed in the book, just looking at the illustrations, turning the pages to follow one character through one of the many storylines depicted wordlessly throughout the book. It is reminiscent of Richard Scarry, for sure, but also unique. If you haven't read it, I suggest taking a look.
