Friday Library Trip: Duck, Duck, Fish!

My one-year-old and I went on another trip to the library today! Today I let her do all the choosing.

But before we get to the books from the library, here’s a book we purchased last week:

Ducks Go Vroom (Step into Reading) by Jane Kohuth and illustrated by Viviana Garofoli

The author of this book is a friend of a friend, but the baby honestly¬†loves this book. Her thing these days is to have me read the first few pages of a book and then move on to the next one. But with this one she actually reads the whole way through! She’s crazy about ducks and she loves the simple, rhyming onomatopoeic words (read: sound words). ¬†We’ve had this book for only a week, but we’ve read it about a million times now.

Okay, now on to the library books:

Two Dumb Ducks by Maxwell Eaton III

As I’ve said before, the baby loves ducks and she picked this book up right away.

Tubby by Leslie Patricelli

I think she chose this again for the rubber duckies. And because we have a bunch of other adorable Leslie Patricelli books at home.

Duck & Goose Find a Pumpkin by Tad Hills

The baby loved the Duck & Goose book we chose last week and liked the look of this one too.

Farmer Duck by Martin Waddell, Illustrated by Helen Oxenbury

Sigh. More ducks.

Ten Little Fish by Audrey Wood, Illustrated by Bruce Wood

Surprise! She was fascinated by the fish and started making pop-pop-pop (bubble) noises with her mouth when she saw this book. She insisted that I read it twice while we were at the library.

    It means so much to me to know how much your daughter loves the book! I had originally thought of it as more of a baby/toddler book than an early reader. Maybe it will be a board book yet. Thank you so much for coming!

    Anything that goes Vroom is a hit with my son. Perhaps my daughter could read this beginning reader to him. Thanks for adding your post to the I Can Read Carnival!
