3rd Installment of Books on Monday



I would like to share a web site that we really enjoy
http://rosemarywells.com/
Princess and I enjoy the books by Rosemary Wells
and I really appreciate the sentiment of her site.
That said here are some more of our favorite books
from our own bookshelves:
the HICCUPotamus by Aaron Zenz

Tumble Bumble by Felicia Bond
These are both delightful reads filled with rhyme that both
parent and child can enjoy!


If I Were a Lion by Sarah Weeks and Illustrated by Heather M. Solomon
excerpt: I'm sitting in my time out chair
because my mother
put me there.
"You try my patience, child!
I do not like it when you're wild."
Having said these words to my Princess so many times, I laughed out loud when I read this book for the first time.The illustrations are gorgeous and the story will strike a chord in any child who has ever been sent to the "time out chair".

When Sophie gets Angry-Really, Really Angry...by Molly Bang

This book is about what Sophie does to deal with her feelings of anger.
It is a Caldecott Honor book and a Charlotte Zolotow Award book.



Here is a fun read from the library this week:

While Mama Had a Quick Little Chat by Amy Reichert Illustrated by Alexandra Boiger

Funny eye-opener for all of us who have been interrupted by our children while having a "quick little chat".

Please let us know what you think of these books or what you are enjoying now with your family.

I see lots of good books in your library pile. I love pictures like this. I am such a book junkie I enlarged it to have a good luck. We have a copy of Tumble Bumble and have enjoyed it many times. Thanks for reminding me of Hiccupotumus. We had it from the library ages ago and Citcat loved it. She had the hiccups the first day we met her and at least once a week since then.

Did you like Bubbles Rainbows and Worms?

I really liked Do Princesses Really Kiss Frogs? Thanks for the suggestion. I have it on the list for next week. I need to order the Princess hiking one from the library.

Oh and I don't know The Acorn Tree and other folktales by Anne Rockwell. I need to check that as well.

I thought While Mama had a Quick Little Chat was cute but difficult to read aloud. We heard it at a book store storytime. We haven't had it from the library ourselves. Maybe I should check it out.

Whoa, I better stop looking. Thanks for all the great ideas. My basket is full.

My homeschool buddies and I are all posting pics of our "home schools" as part of our idea sharing.

Knowledge which is acquired under compulsion has no hold on the mind. Therefore do not use compulsion, but let early education be a sort of amusement; you will then be better able to discover the child's natural bent .
