Cock-a-doodle-doo, Creak, Pop-pop, Moo by Jim Aylesworth

This is a great book for kids who love farm animals and the sounds they make. As you follow a family through their day of waking up on the farm from breakfast to bedtime, from the kitchen for breakfast to the barn to feed the animals, to the garden to hoe the vegetables to the living room at night.

I absolutely adore the illustrations in this book. Love them!

It’s a rhyming book too!

It has been months and month since I’ve added a new book to MommaReads, but I have a whole stack of books here ready to review and this one is so cute I knew it had to be the first one.

If you have a little one who is into pointing out body parts then they will love this book. If you’ve been a MommaReads fan for awhile then you know I love a good rhyming book and this one doesn’t disappoint in the department either.

All of the animals in the zoo are having babies. Some are small, some are big, some are feathery, some are furry…they’re all cute. The pandas and the kangaroos are the only animals who don’t have any animal babies. The zookeeper has a special surprise for the pandas and the kangaroos though.

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.

Monsters on Machines by Deb Lund

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 Llama Time to Share by Anna Dewdney

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. 🙂

Bear Says Thanks by Karma Wilson

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.

If you have a child who loves sports then these books by Lisa Wheeler will be a HIT in your house! There is also Dino-Hockey, Dino-Basketball, Dino-Baseball and Dino-Soccer. They also rhyme and you know I love a book that rhymes. 🙂

The Best Place to Read by Debbie Bertram & Susan Bloom

November 9, 2012 - 5:44 pm No Comments

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.

Monster Mash by David Catrow

This book is set to the words of the famous “Monster Mash” song, but with illustrations that your child will love. I don’t know if you’ll be able to just read the book though, you may end up singing it to your child instead. Lots of Halloween fun is wrapped up in this book. Enjoy!
