A super cute rhyming book that celebrates the relationship between twins. The author of this book has twins and they were the inspiration for this story.
This is the perfect book if you have your own home garden or if you are a teacher and you have a garden at your school. The teacher in this story tell the students about how Thomas Jefferson and his friends had a contest each year to see who could fill a bowl full of peas first using the peas grown from their own gardens. Thomas Jefferson learned that there were a lot of different types of peas and some grew bigger and faster than others.
The students in this story end up having the same contest amongst themselves in their classroom. They learn about different pea varieties, the effect weather can have on growing and good sportsmanship. Eventually someone does win the crown for the first bowlful of peas.
These monsters have a lot of work to do with their backhoes, bulldozers and trucks, but they still find some time for a nap…then it’s back to work. I know there was a time in my boys’ lives when they would have LOVED this book..right about the time they were into Bob the Builder and his crew. I love this book because the monsters are cute and it rhymes.
Llama has a new neighbor who has come over to play. They are playing together very well until the new neighbor decides to play with Llama’s favoritest doll EVER. Things go south quick and the doll goes in time out until everyone can apologize and agree to play together nicely. I am pretty sure every family whose had a small child in their house will be able to relate to poor Llama and his sharing dilemma. These books also rhyme…I love a good rhyming book.
You just cannot go wrong with a Karma Wilson/Jane Chapman “Bear” book. The story is sweet, the rhyme is endearing and the illustrations are lovely. In this installment, Bear’s friends all come by with food to share, but it seems that Bear doesn’t have anything to share because his cupboards are bare. Of course his friends don’t mind and there’s plenty to go around and the best thing to share is their friendship.
Told in the witty style of Mo Williems’ other children’s stories, poor goldilocks ignores all of the clues that would have kept her from going into the dinosaurs’ house in the first place. The dinosaurs are looking for a little girl to munch on and Goldilocks falls right into their trap. Unfortunately, the dinosaurs aren’t very patient nor are they quiet…lucky thing for Miss Goldilocks.
Don’t wait until December to read this; some books are just too cute to save for one holiday.
