Favourite Books - Our Faves Right Now
Here are some of our favourite books right now, that we seem to be reading over and over lately!! (The book write-ups are from Chapters.ca)
1. Knuffle Bunny: Trixie, Daddy, and Knuffle Bunny take a trip to the neighborhood Laundromat. But the exciting adventure takes a dramatic turn when Trixie realizes somebunny was left behind. Using a combination of muted black-and-white photographs and expressive illustrations, this stunning book tells a brilliantly true-to-life tale about what happens when Daddy's in charge and things go terribly, hilariously wrong.
2. Itsy Bitsy Spider: A silly new twist on an old favorite! Children can trace the glittery trail of the Itsy Bitsy Spider as he is blown out of the window of a barn and then drifts, flutters and glides from barnyard animal to barnyard animal. Colors and barnyard sounds are introduced in this rhythmic title. Sturdy card stock pages are highlighted with the Itsy Bitsy Spider''s web trail in "flitter"-a non-shedding, durable glitter.
3. The Very Cranky Bear: In the Jingle Jangle Jungle on a wet and windy day, Moose, Lion, Zebra, and Sheep found a perfect place to play. None of them had noticed that someone else was there. Sleeping in that cave was a VERY cranky... When four friends encounter a cranky bear, they decide they must cheer him up. Moose, Lion, and Zebra''s outrageous ideas all backfire, which leaves it up to poor, plain Sheep to deal with this beast, who just wants a quiet place to sleep. Whatever will she do? This rhyming story with hilarious illustrations is guaranteed to entertain its readers and its listeners.
4. I Love You Stinky Face: As a mother lovingly tucks her child into bed, the imaginative child has a few questions. For instance, "what if I were an alligator with big, sharp teeth that could bite your head off?" This unstoppably devoted mother will have readers laughing out loud as replies to one question after another.
