What my child is reading... week 2


Bark, George by Jules Feiffer- My kids have had me read this book so many times. They love the surprise ending.

What Makes a Rainbow? by Betty Ann Schwartz- This is a Magic Ribbon Book. These are so fun. This is a great book to help with learning colors.

Oscar Otter by Nathaniel Benchley- This is about an Otter that doesn't listen to his father and finds himself in trouble.

Apples, Apples, Apples by Nancy Elizabeth Wallace- All about apples. This book has an activity, a  recipe and craft to do at the end. My kids thought they were fun.

1,2,3 to the zoo a counting book by Eric Carle.- This doesn't have any words. My kids both loved finding the mouse on every page.

Curious George and the Firefighters by Margret & H.A. Rey's- My kids always love Curious George books. I felt as though it is sending the wrong message to my kids. He sneaks on to a firetruck and ends up getting praised for it in the end. I always need to have a little discussion with my kids after reading a Curious George book.

Children's Human Body Encyclopedia- This book is says it is for 8+. But my three year old loves to look at the pictures and ask what things are. He has been really interested in these kinds of books lately. Especially about the skeletal system.

Are you my mother? by P.D. Eastman- This book is so cute. We have read it many times.

Bob's Busy Saw- This is a very short board book. My son has wanted me to read it this week at least ten times.

Richard Scarry's Cars and Trucks and Things That Go- We love this book. It is huge. We like to look at the pictures and decide if there really is a vehicle like that. For instance the corn car and pickle truck are probably not real.


  1. My 5-year-old loves Bark, George, What Makes a Rainbow? and Curious George. We haven't read Are You My Mother? In a while--I should pull it out.

  2. I like Apples, Apples, Apples, too. We pull it out during apple picking season every year.

  3. Great choice of books! We read and loved most of them. My daughter (who is 4) loves to read encyclopaedias. She is now pouring over Space encyclopaedia. Thanks for joining WMCIR!
