It’s Wednesday and you know what that means!! It’s time to take a peek at some of the great books we read this week.

I See Summer is a great bilingual book all about the fun things to see and do in summer. We had a great time looking at the illustrations and I am sure the kids loved mom trying to read in Spanish.

In, Out and All Aroundwas a book that the whole family really enjoyed. Mom and Dad even got in on the action trying to find out which snail was ready for a dance. Each page features a picture with a bunch of similar snails and it is your job to find out which one is different. It was the perfect challenge for a 3 and a 1 year old. This book was a huge win for us and we will be looking for more titles by this author.

In Where Is Bear?we follow several forest animals as they play hide-and-seek. Rabbit starts out and finds most of the other animals fairly quickly but the biggest animal of all, Bear, is nowhere to be found. We follow the animal friends on their adventure to find Bear! This was a really cute story with great rhymes that the kids really enjoyed.

Construction Kitties takes us out for a day at the construction site where we follow four kitties to work. They spend the day digging and moving dirt to help create a beautiful playground for the neighborhood. The bright illustrations in this book and the straightforward text made this book very engaging for the kids.

Lastly this week I  want to share First the EggI love this book! It starts with the classic question, which came first, the chicken or the egg? It then follows up with the life-cycle of other creatures like the frog and butterfly. This book has beautiful illustrations and uses diecuts in each page in a really clever way to help tell the story. Soph had a really great time trying to finish each sentence.
