Stegothesaurus (Heos, Bridget)
This book was a little over little gal’s head, but my hubby and got some chuckles out it. I think this would be a great book to read when teaching about thesauruses.
Yes, Yes, Yaul! (Czekaj, Jef)
Little gal picked out this book at the library. The rap references and rap sections made me chuckle. I’m not a natural rapper and would have loved to hear someone with some rap skills really perform this book. I’m not sure little gal got much out of this, but It was an amusing read for her momma!
Hank’s Big Day: The Story of a Bug (Kuhlman, Evan)
My daughter LOVED this book and asked to read it more than once. I’m not sure what captivated her about this book, but I did love the little asides added in to the illustrations.
In the Garden with Dr. Carver (Grigsby, Susan)
This was a beautifully written and illustrated book that taught me quite a bit about what Dr. Carver taught. I expect to revisit this when little gal is older.
The Day My Dogs Became Guys (Markoe, Merrill)
Little gal also loved this book and requested to read it multiple times. I can’t blame her, the imagery of adults acting like dogs is pretty hilarious in this book.
I have heard how bad worksheets are for learning, but little gal begs to do the workbooks I have in her school supplies. We’ve been doing worksheets a lot this week and she’s been really enjoying them.
Judy Moody read aloud
This book is a good case for pre-reading, which I obviously don’t do right now. I bought Judy Moody Declares Independence at a yard sale because I had heard she was popular for kids and I thought the cover was adorable.
I actually think the historical content is really great and I’ve even learned about the American Revolution from the book. I was especially excited to see Sybil Ludington referred to in the book (Hubby and I just recently listened to her story on Drunk History). However, I have a really hard time with Judy’s attitude, words, and behavior. I probably wouldn’t have read it with her if I had pre-read it.
We are finding a good flow with little gal coloring in a book or doing copy work while I read aloud. I’m going to see how it goes long term, but for the time being this is a good fit.
