This is the Tuesday every month over on the 5 minutes for books blog when they run a carnival called Kids Pick. This is the first time I have joined in for this carnival but I am happy to add my post, I love sharing books with my son and I am excited about sharing the books he loves with you.
My son is two and a half years old, I have been reading books to him since he was two days old and just this morning he brought in three books for me to read to him before I ever got out of bed plus one before nap time and probably two more before bedtime tonight. This is a list of books he has been loving recently.
Do Your ABC's, Little Brown Bear (Picture Puffin Books) Follow Papa Brown Bear and Little Brown Bear as they find items that begin with each letter of the Alphabet. I am actually not the biggest fan of this book because it is terribly long and not very poetic, it doesn't flow very well but the little guy loves it. He is learning his Alphabet and in this book he can pick out many of the letters and likes the little brown bear character.
The Sneetches and Other Stories an "unforgettable tale of the unfortunate Sneetches, bamboozled by one Sylvester McMonkey McBean ("the Fix-it-up Chappie"), who teaches them that pointless prejudice can be costly." (From Amazon.com review) I had never read the Sneetches before I had my son. My husband loved all things Dr. Seuss when he was little but for some reason I was never exposed to his works as a child. Now that I know them I love them and thankfully so does the Little Guy. Dr. Seuss books are so much fun to read, every story flows trippingly off the tongue.
Curious George Goes to a Costume Party The title of this book is all you need to know in regards to a synopsis. Before Halloween last year I tried to get my son to pick this book for bedtime night after night. Again and again he would say 'no' or would run and pick another book and hand it to me instead. Then a couple months after Halloween he found it on his book shelf and hasn't stopped picking it since. It is a very cute Curious George tale with room for some funny voice work by me which I greatly enjoy. I don't have to worry, this year he will be more than ready for Halloween.
