In our house books are a big deal. Perhaps it’s because I have two degrees in English or perhaps it’s just because books are fun! Either way, as Grey’s book collection continues to grow, I wanted to share with all you mommas what books we are loving in hopes of encouraging your littles to develop a joy for reading. Check out the infographic at the end of this post for more reasons to start reading to your child now rather than later. Now, on to this edition of Misguided Book Club:
I will warn you, Corduroy is a lengthy book for a little, and sometimes we don’t get through the whole thing, but nonetheless Grey always grabs it off the shelf and asks me to read it. Beside the fact that it is an actual classic, Corduroy is one of those stories that gives you all the warm fuzzy feelings of childhood as he finds his forever home with a loving little girl.
The little Lion who her Roar is an adorably fun book about a young lion who tries to find her roar in unexpected places. Grey especially loves this books because of the lift-the-flap pages (there’s only been one casualty so far!).
I raved about Ten Tiny Toes in a previous post, but just in case you missed that, I wanted to give you another chance to get.this.book. When Grey was an infant this book was a favorite because he was enamored with the illustrations. As he grew it became a quick favorite as he began to learn his body parts in a fun way. It’s one of the books I’ve actually memorized, which comes in handy when he wants to hold the book.
The Foot Book (Big Bright & Early Board Book) is fun, silly, and brightly illustrated. We have a collection of 12 Dr. Seuss board books, but this is the only one Grey has been interested in so far. As a parent I can’t complain as it’s one of the few Dr. Seuss books that doesn’t have a ton of made up words, which when you’re learning how to speak is kind of important ;).
