Book list

02/01/2010 at 2:37 pm | Posted in Reading, Small Fry | 3 Comments

Although Small Fry tends to ask for the same books over and over and over (and over again), a few new ones have squeezed into our rotation since I last published her book list. At 23 months old, she has a bit more patience for longer books and also still loves her lift-the-flap ones, too. My new favorite is Bedtime Mouse by Sandol Stoddard. These lines make me smile every time I read them out loud:

Did you know about sky?

Did you know
There are skies in your eyes?

Did you know
There are moons?
Did you know there are moons in the skies of
your eyes whenever you shut them?

Did you know there are faces and places you’ve
seen and surprises
That your eyes are forever keeping
While you are sleeping?

Here are Small Fry’s current favorites. Any suggestions for new books to try?

Are You My Mother?
Bedtime Mouse
Big Red Barn
Clifford’s Birthday Party
Once Upon a Potty
Where’s Spot?

  1. Collin loves the Little Quack books. (Little Quack’s New Friend is one of his faves) -it’s cute.

  2. We’re Big Red Barn fans, too.
    Also Eric Carle’s Very Hungry Caterpillar
    Sheep in a Jeep, Sheep in a Shop, etc. by Nancy Shaw (great humor for both toddlers and adults!)
    Any of the Gossie, Gertie and Ollie books by Olivier Dunrea

    • Awesome. Thanks for the recommendations!
