Kid's Pick - 5 minutes for books

Tuesday, October 20, 2009


My son will be three years old this December. I have been reading to him since before birth and he has so far picked up my love for books. He has more books than anything else in his room and recently he has been picking out longer and longer titles to read at bedtime, nap time and any other time. For the past few weeks he has been hooked on a book I bought before I was even pregnant.

Mr. Peabody's Apples by Madonna. I worked at Barnes and Noble before becoming a stay-at-home Mom when Madonna's books came out I was able to pick up first editions of her first two titles. I bought them knowing I would have children some day, my love of reading is something I always hoped to pass on.

Well, here I am with an almost 3 year old and finally reading this book. This is one of the first books my son says the actual title when he wants to read it, he loves the illustrations and the story provides a great introduction and eventually conversation starter for stealing and not judging other people. I am a little afraid he will want to cut a pillow in half some day but, if he learns the lessons then it will be worth it in the end.

8 your two cents:

I've never heard of this one. Very appealing cover, though! I think I would be the worst bookstore employee, because I'd always be hidden back in some corner with a stack of books. :)

Thanks for linking up with us!

Thank you for visiting today. This sounds pike an interesting book.

I actually have this one too. I was surprised to find it is very good. I don't know why I was surprised, just a seemingly unlikely author for kids books.

at lot of the times we are in the back reading books. If anyone is every missing at the bookstore just look in the back, they probably have theri nose in a book.

I also think the illustrations look fantastic.

Don't you love it when they ask for books by title? It's so awesome. THe willingness to read it again and again increases! ;)

Sounds fun!

when he asks for a book by title it reminds me that he really does like to read, that I am doing all I can to help him in his reading career I guess, bottom line: it feels good.
