I have really been enjoying sharing some of the books we're reading, and I hope you enjoy reading about them!
Frosty the Snowman by Jack Collins and Steve Nelson has been my son's favorite book this week. We have read it no less than once a day. I truly think it's because of the bold illustrations by Richard Cowdery. The text is simple: it is the Frosty song that many of us know and love. (Musical notes are included in front and back, but they cannot help me to sing it on key.)
The Alphabet Book by P.D. Eastman has been another popular book with my son. Our copy is old and used. I like this for a very basic alphabet book because it's just "A American ants". Since there is no story throughout the book, you can really look at the letters and say them without interrupting the plot.
Days with Frog and Toad by Arnold Lobel was a much-enjoyed "chapter" book with my daughter, age 4. It's a typical Frog and Toad book. My favorite story was "Alone." Frog wanted some time to himself. He went off and sat on an island. Toad went looking for him...and then they were alone together.
Those have been the popular books! Something I don't think I have shared before is that only I read to my daughter the chapter books. When my husband tucks M in (every other night) he will read a picture book to her. Once we read "real" chapter books, I will definitely appreciate that so I don't miss out on the story!
