Reading books is something we love to do every night before bed. There are certain books we reread that my kids memorized and “read” to each other. Our theme this week revolves around books and I wanted to share some of our favorites. These are not in any particular order.
H’s Top 5
By Victoria Kann & Elizabeth Kann.
I actually found this book at a yard sale right before it became a huge hit. H loves the Pinkalicious series but this is her all time favorite.
Giving Tree, By Shel Silverstein.
A classic, one of my favorites as well.
Pumpkin, By Erica Silverman.
H found this book on display at Barnes & Noble during Halloween and loved the story. We read this all year round.
George Goes Bananas, By Michael Rex.
A cute parody to the Curious George books, H thought this story was a riot. She had me read it several times the first day we bought it.
Amazing Adventures of Bumblebee Boy,
By David Soman & Jacky Davis
“Bum ba bum bumm!” H shouts.
N’s Top 5
Do Dinosaurs Eat Their Food? By Jane
Yolen & Mark Teague
N loves this series but this is his favorite by far.
George Goes to the Ice Cream Shop, By
Margret & H.A Rey
Two of N’s favorites things… Curious George + ice cream. How can he not like this book.
Love Underpants, By Claire Freedman
& Ben Cort
A fun story about the extinction of dinosaurs and a little lead into introducing “big boy pants” for my boy.
Bear Brown Bear What Do You See? By
I love listening to N “read” this story to me.
My Oh My Oh Dinosaurs, By Sandra
N loves to narrate and change his voice according to the type of dinosaur. N bellows in a low voice, “Dinosaurs BIG” and squeaks, “Dinosaurs tiny”. We have such fun with this book!
Which books do your kids have memorized? What are some of his/her favorite book series?
