With a new little one in the house, books have stiff competition. Even books get set aside for the opportunity to hold, cuddle, or just gaze at Ezra’s cuteness. However, we are still reading. Here are a few we have enjoyed:
Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak – This was definitely not pulled off the New Books shelf at the library. It caught my eye at my last trip to the library. It has been read many times over the years and it seemed time to enjoy it again. It is always a fun read. I’ll eat you up – I love you so. My Wild Things appreciated it.
Blueberries for Sal – Robert McCloskey- I guess my last trip to the library was spent in the “old book collection”. Martha, 2, has thoroughly loved reading this again and again. I’m glad that I didn’t let the numerous times we had read it keep me from pulling it off the shelf. Kerplink, kerplank, kerplunk….
Peggy: A Brave Chicken on a Big Adventure – Anna Walker – Peggy is a chicken who enjoys the simplicity of life. A quiet life in the country and a lovely daily routine. Then one day a gust of wind sends Peggy to the city and a big adventure…..A fun find at the library. Who doesn’t love a story about a chicken?
More – I. C. Springman – A magpie doesn’t seem to know when more is enough. With some help from a few mice and natural consequences, the magpie quickly learns when more is more than enough. This book has detailed pictures of the magpie’s collection and very little text. It provides a simple read with lots of fun discussion.
