Here's what we ended up with this week:
The Watcher, by Jeanette Winter: This is too complex for my daughter to sit through, but she enjoys the illustrations. My husband teaches a novel that deal with Jane Goodall, and my low readers read a leveled book about Jane Goodall. I'm eager to read this aloud as they read the leveled book, especially because it's written as a narrative.
No Sleep For the Sheep!, By Karen Beaumont, Illustrated by Jackie Urbanovic: This book is fun with a lot of repetition (great for building a child's phonemic awareness), but so far my daughter has rejected it. Hopefully she'll warm up to it over the next couple of week. The illustrations are delightful.
Rubia and the Three Osos, by Susan Middleton Elya, illustrated by Melissa Sweet: I love the spirit of this book, and I especially love that it is sprinkled with a ton of Spanish.
My Very First Mother Goose, edited by Iona Opie, illustrated by Rosemary Wells: We have several books in this genre around the house. But I really love the way that this mother goose is arranged (into 4 chapters). You could get away with reading a chapter a night- great for little ones! My daughter loves the pictures too- little animals dressed as people!
Dora's Book of Words: This was my daughter's choice, as you can imagine! It's a hit!
