8 Books Preschoolers LOVE!
We read a LOT of books in our house – I hope you do in your house too! And from time to time one of those books really strikes me as a special book - a book worth reading again and sharing with others. Here are a few of our new favorite books:
- “In the sand sat a cannonball carved with a C!
- The dug for doubloons and scooped up a D.
- E escaped down from one pirate’s pierced ear.
- His mate raised a falt and found F – give a cheer!”
“They stared at the old tractor. It was covered with rust. Only a few bits of red paint were left. The tires were flat, and saplings were growing out of the engine. ‘When I was a boy; that tractor was new; with shiny red paint. My father used it for almost all the chores around the farm,’ Grandpa said proudly….The more Grandpa Joe talked about the tractor, the more excited he became…..Timmy imagined the tractor when it was shiny and red, with its motor rumbling and with tires that were new and round.”
This book is beautiful! The illustrations are charming. The story is so sweet. A Grandpa takes his grandson Timmy to a run down farm where he grew up. The boy sees a beat-up rusty tractor. But as the Grandpa begins telling stories about when he was young & the found memories he has of life with the tractor the boy begins to picture the tractor as new again. This story helps kids imagine what life is like on a farm, see that the older generation had lives of their own, and is a sweet story of the Grandpa & Timmy. Just beautiful, I think we found a new favorite! Ages 3-8
- "Forsaking their niches, their nests, and their nooks, they went wild simply wild, about wonderful books.
This book is darling! A librarian, Molly McGrew, mistakenly drove her bookmobile to the zoo. The animals became wild about reading books. It’s a great book to share the fun and joy of reading a good book. The illustrations are cute; and I love how there are classic books like Goodnight Moon, The Cat in the Hat, and The Wizard of Oz in it. It has a great rhyme to it too, so it’s a fun read. Ages 3-8
- “Green frogs leap. Beetles creep. Finches perch. Herons lurch.
- Flicker! Flutter! Scamper! Scoot! On every rock and leaf and root!
- But the six silent turtles sit still as stones.”
- “They had peanut butter pot roast served with peanut butter rice.
- They had peanut butter soda chilled with peanut butter ice.”
“Alex is a BIG polar bear. Zina is a tiny penguin.
- Ales I mostly white, with some black. Zina is mostly black, with some shite.
- Alex is shaggy. Zina is smooth.”
- "Spider creeping….scary. Gross.
- Lurking…leaping! Don’t get close!
- Freaky, sneaky, shiny flat bug.
- Hariy, scary – what was THAT bug?”
- “…..Who has my PB&J? It isn’t my mom. She doesn’t like peanut butter.
- Maybe it’s Spotty from next door. He sneaks inside sometimes, and once he got my cookie.
- But it’s probably Penny.”
