A little more reading aloud is going on over here of late - now that I am not nearly so pregnant and am no longer gasping for air as I try to read to the girls or dozing off as I would read aloud. (Sad, but true). We're getting back in the swing of some daily reading and this is what has been in our rotation:
Sent to us from Amy at Hope is the Word! A touchy feel-y book that my 3yo is thoroughly enjoying, even though it really is baby Ethan's book. : )
Little Pea, Little Hoot and Little Oink - three sweet board books by Amy Krause Rosenthal. These three characters are different that others of their kind and these are short, sweet stories that impress that it's okay to be a bit different. I.e., Little Oink likes to be organized and neat - not messy like other pigs; Little Hoot likes to go to be early and not stay up late like the other owls; and Little Pea only wants to eat his vegetables not candy which his parents are insisting up on him eating! (Apparently candy is what makes little peas grow up big and strong ... who knew?)
And our current chapter read-aloud:
I will say no more othat than we are almost finished with the first story in this new collection and enjoying it every bit as much as the first book by Emily Bearn. What a wise Mama that decided to pre-order this for Noelle's birthday this fall! : )
