Reading Together

A lot of new picture books seemed to made their way into our regular reading rotation this month, especially the first four listed…

Between Winnie the Pooh and the books below, here’s what we’ve been reading together:

Boy + Bot by Ame Dyckman, illustrated by Dan Yaccarino

(In robot speech)

You Much Check Out This Book. You Will Love This Book.

Oh No, George! by Chris Haughton

The latest from author of a previous favorite, Little Owl Lost.

One Special Day by Lola M. Schaefer, illustrated by Jessica Meserve

A sweet story about becoming a big brother along with outstanding illustrations by Jessica Meserve.

You Are a Lion! And Other Fun Yoga Poses by Taeeun Yoo

A fun, simple picture book about yoga poses easy enough for the youngest yogis.

We’re Going on a Bear Hunt by Michael Rose, Helen Oxenbury

A classic read aloud, perfect for toddler age children.

Cake Cake Cake Pie by Sally Kahler Phillips

Rhythm and rhyme all about cake and pie.

The Duckling Gets a Cookie?! by Mo Willems

Been enjoying Mo Willems latest edition in his Pigeon (and Duckling!) series.

Ann Likes Red by Dorothy Z. Seymour

Independent Ann and her deep affections for the color ‘red’.

Gem by Holly Hobbie

A wordless adventure by the author of Toot and Puddle.

Brian Wildsmith’s Animals to Count by Brian Wildsmith

A simple counting board book we’ve been reading a lot of lately, paired with Brian Wildsmith’s fanciful illustrations.

Duckie’s Rainbow by Frances Barry

We take a walk with Duckie through a world of color on a daily basis.

Ten Apples Up On Top! by Theo LeSieg, illustrated by Ray McKie

What starts with one turns into fun with this ridiculous story about a few cooky animals who like to put apples atop of their heads.

Pouch! by David Ezra Stein

Kangaroos have been an animal of interest in our house lately (prime reason: “Kanga” and “Roo”). This is a fun book about a little joey afraid of everything outside of his pouch.

In the Night Kitchen by Maurice Sendak

In memory of the late Maurice Sendak, I’ve been reading In the Night Kitchen and Where the Wild Things Are to L. It seems to be the only thing to do… continue to read and celebrate the work of great imagination.

Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak

What have you been reading together?

***’Reading Together is a sampling of picture books I’m currently reading aloud to LBD (also known as L or Little L), my toddler daughter. As a children’s librarian, I’m always bringing home stacks and stacks of books to share together. Old and new. These are our favorites. Some of which have been read over and over and over again…. Times thirty. To the tenth power.***
