always on the hunt for new books around here since reading with the kids throughout the day is one of our favorite things to do, and really important to us. we have been exploring our local library more and are loving it! these 5 are ones we have all enjoyed a little extra in recent weeks. you can see more of the kiddos favorite books in more posts like these HERE.
1. me…jane by patrick mcdonnell
this is one of eleanor’s favorites right now. and i love having her look up to such an inspiring woman as dr. goodall who in the book dreams of living with and helping animals and grows up to do just that! the last page with the real photograph of her and the chimpanzee always gives me chills! it’s a good one.
2. planes go by steve light
this is a fun one that samson is into. the board book has a lot of obnoxious text about airplanes which means we have way too much fun getting really loud and silly together while reading it.
3. pablo the artist by satoshi kitamura
a very cute story with the sweetest illustrations about pablo the elephant who has “artist’s block.” it’s all about being creative and has a funny take on the creative process. it also has a great message about teamwork and friendship, which we love.
4. pom and pim by lena landstrom
this is a cute one following pom and pim around their day together full of ups and downs. good luck! bad luck! what luck! it’s very playful and sweet, and we have really enjoyed it.
5. this moose belongs to me by oliver jeffers
oh my gosh, this book has been one of MY favorites the last few months so i’ve been so happy to see the kids wanting to read it more and more. it’s very witty and the illustrations are of course incredible (what else do you expect though, it’s oliver jeffers). i want wilfred and his pet moose to be my neighbors. ;) love them so much.
