library books

We checked out some fun children's books from the library. Claire has poured over them for hours and Emily has a new favorite author, Ezra Jack Keats.
Emily fell in love with Peter in the board book version of The Snowy Day so I checked out two more Keats books, A Letter to Amy, and Whistle for Willie.
Claire loves the illustrations in Big Book of Little Children by Catherine and Laurence Anholt and Big Words for Little People by Jamie Lee Curtis and Laura Cornell.
Doreen Cronin and Betsy Lewin have teamed up to write several hilaorios books about farm animals the one we chose this time was, Thump Quack Moo A Whacky Adventure. Claire's favorite of the bunch has been When Sophie Gets Angry-- Really, Really Angry by Molly Bang.

I also forgot to mention that we are about 2/3 through Farmer Boy by Laura Ingalls Wilder. Claire likes it but not as much as she liked Little House in The Big Woods.

Did you read the entire Little House series at some point? I don't remember reading it to you, but my guess is you read some of it on your own. Do you still have to start with the 1st chapter before proceeding further into the story?

I read them all during elementary school.
See will let us start where we left off most of the time.
