Welcome back to another look at some of the great books we are reading this week. Hopefully you will find a few titles here that you can share with your family!
First up is Wingsby Christopher Myers, this is a beautiful story about a boy in a new school named Ikarus who is taunted for having wings. He decides to exile himself and a young girl goes on a search to find him. This story offers a great lesson to little ones on acceptance and individualism. This is a lesson I try to share with my children as much as possible and we really enjoyed sharing this story.
Secret Pizza Partyis the cute story of a raccoon who LOVES pizza (who doesn’t!). He spends most of his time outside a local pizza place much to the pizza man’s dismay. Raccoon devises a clever plan to have his own secret pizza party. Things don’t go exactly as planned and we get to follow Raccoon along on his adventure to have some yummy pizza! My pizza loving kids really liked this book!
Where’s the Pair?is a beautifully illustrated seek-and-find book filled with all sorts of animals and encourages kids to find the matching pair on each spread. There’s a good mix of difficulty levels that made it fun for both Soph & Jack. It also has great rhyming text that flows nicely and uses great vocabulary. We really had a great time with this book.
Silly Sallyis a cute, fun, short book all about being silly! We follow along as Sally walks through town (not quite in the way you might think). I love that is shows that it’s OK to be silly sometimes! It has great watercolor illustrations that made the kids laugh! It has a great rhythm to it that makes it a great read-aloud.
Finally, Rocks! Rocks! Rocks!is a great book about Buddy who loves collecting and examining rocks. His mother suggests that they head out to their local nature center. They meet up with a Ranger who teaches Buddy all about rocks. As a mom with a three-year-old who loves to collect rocks we really enjoyed the illustrations and learning all about rocks!
Until next time!
