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.
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.
Do you have a perfect place to read? Do your kids? I know I usually read on the couch or while my kids are at tae kwon do lessons. Both of my kids do most of their reading in bed or in the car.
The little boy in this book is trying to find the perfect place to read his new book, but he can’t read in his dad’s chair because the ceiling fan is too cool and he can’t read at the kitchen table because the baby’s eating and getting food everywhere. His older sister’s music is too loud, so he can’t read in her room and he can’t read outside because the sprinkler is on. He does, eventually, find the perfect place to read though…on his momma’s lap in a comfortable chair.
Do your kids love surprises? Then they will love this book! The piggies are trying to whip up a culinary surprise for their mama, but they are making quite a mess. Papa comes to the rescue and helps them turn on the oven and get things cleaned up just in time. I love the rhyming in this book, too…it just adds so much to the book and makes it so much fun to read.
I love that this book talks about all kinds of “princesses” and that it rhymes…I haven’t read a good rhyming book in a good long while.
I also love that there is a phrase that repeats throughout the book that your little book lover will soon realize they can “read” along with you when you get to that part each time which is super huge for children who are learning about books and how they work.
Some princesses, when they choose,
never pick out fancy shoes,
but soccer cleats for outdoor sports
with shin guards and some baggy shorts,
and a sparkly crown.
