What my child is reading...

Harold and the Purple Crayon by Crockett Johnson- This was my favorite book as a child and I still love to read it to my children. It is about  a boy that draws an adventure with his crayon. He gets homesick and finally finds his bed.

Mr. Brown Can Moo! Can You? Dr. Seuss's Book of Wonderful Noises by Dr. Suess- This is a good book for kids with a lot of energy. They get to make all kinds of sounds.

Berenstains' A Book by Stan & Jan Berenstain- This is a good book for the letter A in a letter of the week curriculum.

Danny and the Dinosaur by Syd Hoff- This book is about a dinosaur that comes to life and plays with Danny for the day.

One Fine Day by Nonny Hogrogian- A fox gets his tail cut off for stealing milk and the woman says that if he replaces the milk she will sew his tail back on. He asks a cow for milk and the cow says he can have milk if he gets her some grain. And so the story goes everybody wants something in return until finally one person gives without anything in return. The first page seemed harsh. I wasn't expecting it. I did like the message at the end.

The Big Shiny Sparkly First Words Book by Susie Lacome- A fun book for Toddlers, it has a lot of pictures and flaps on every page.

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom- we read this every week to go with our Letter of the Week. Nathan calls it Chicken Back Boom Boom- A fun book about all of the letters. They climb up a coconut tree until it falls over and they all fall down.

Helen Oxenbury's Big Baby Book- This is a very simple board book but my kids have always loved it.

Mrs. Brice's Mice- a favorite from when I was a kid- Mrs. Brice has 25 mice. 24 do the same thing but one is always doing something different.


  1. My boys loved Mr. Brown Can Moo when they were younger. It was one of their favorites to act out.

  2. Thanks for joining WMCIR! We love everything by Helen Oxenbury - she is such a talented illustrator, and her baby books are awesome.
