Tuesday Book Post
Saturday morning, on my way home from my Grandmother's,
I stopped off at the library to pick up some books I had on hold
and take a look around while I was on my own to see what else
I could find. Here are some of the books which caught my eye...
Can You Greet the Whole Wide World?
12 common phrases in 12 different languages
by Lezlie Evans and Denis Roche
I do wish I had this last week for World Hello Day,
but it was still enjoyable.
The Red Book by Barbara Lehman is a book without words.
Princess really enjoys being able to "fill in the blanks" herself,
so I knew she would enjoy it. We had to take it out, because
we were reading Museum Trip by the same author and
were enjoying it.
Monsoon by Uma Krishnaswami with pictures by Jamel Akib
is a story about a family in India waiting for the Monsoon season
to start. Princess and I were both enthralled..I could smell the mangoes!
Dawn Watch by Jean E. Pendziwol with pictures by Nicolas Debon
is a story about a girl and her Dad sailing across Lake Superior one night.
Naturally, Princess now wants to go sailing across the lake with her Dad...
but then the pictures were so lovely, so do I.
Bumpety Bump by Pat Hutchins
was sitting on the table at the library and it was so cold outside, I had to take home
some sunshine and warm days in the garden. This fit the bill!
Fun read..filled with rhyme and happy pictures of a boy and his Grandpa picking
fresh veg out of the garden.
The Dragon Snatcher by MP Robertson...we requested this book so long ago,
I no longer remember why I wanted to read it.I think it was because we read and loved
The Egg when we read it.Princess is really enjoying it.
THE POLAR EXPRESS by Chris Van Allsburg
this is one of Princess's favorite holiday stories and sadly, we do not own a copy of the book.
Maybe Santa will bring one this year.....
