Books we're reading

Here are two library books we are reading right now:

The first one is "We're Going on a Bear Hunt" by Rosen/Oxenbury. This book is a childhood favorite of mine. I have memories of my Grandma telling us this story. She lives in Lake Tahoe where there are lots of trees and occasionally a black bear that comes to check out the neighborhood garbage cans. So this story always came alive for me when she shared it.

Now, my kids are enjoying this classic book. It teaches about doing things as a family, not being afraid, having a great day, action words like: over, under, going "through it", speaking quiet/loud and slow/fast, lots of action words and rhythm. Our kids know this book by heart. Lots of fun at reading time.

Then there is this book called "Eating the Alphabet: Fruits and Vegetables from A to Z" by Ehlert.

This is a great book for learning ABC's and encouraging eating our fruits and vegies. Which is a must for picky toddlers in our house. We are having fun tasting and preparing different foods they are learning about.
