These books are great anytime of day, but every book is best just before bed I think, particularly when snow is blowing outside and you're tucked up warm and cozy inside. Here are some of our latest "Read it again!" books.
This one has to go at the top of the list; all four of us are nuts about it!! It is the cutest, sweetest story about a girl that adopts a butternut squash at the farmer's market. I think it's brilliant.
This was a new addition to our Christmas books. It's a magical story about a little girl's journey and it's told through breathtaking photography, slightly assisted by photoshop (she rides a polar bear). My only complaint is that I wanted the Santa to be dressed in fur and velvet with a real beard and he looked more like a mall santa. But I still love it :)
A beautiful way to introduce the artist Kandisnky and encourage marching to the beat of your own drummer.
An old Dr. Seuss gem from the 1930's that's been reissued. I love old books, they just have a different flavor. This is an epic story that illustrates the notion of all work and no play makes everything fall to pieces!
I tried reading these to Sam, but the language was a bit over his head. I, on the other hand, burned through the whole series in a matter of days. It's quirky and weird, magical and empowering. I loved it!
So sweet. You will love him:)
This is a childhood favorite of mine; Abbie is so brave! We picked up a copy to add to our Maine collection when we were home for Christmas. Some of you may remember seeing this book on Reading Rainbow:) (You can watch the episode here!)
Another Maine favorite. The statue of Andre is not far from my parents' house. Sam thinks he would like to have a trained seal some day:)
From the beloved Sandra Boynton and a bunch of famous singers, this CD and book has been played over and over. Sam is nuts about it and thinks the idea of a "frog stampede" (you'll have to listen to it) is hilarious.
Have any favorite reads that we should check out?
