Friday Library Trip: Toddler Picks and Mommy Picks
I’m beginning to notice that the toddler likes to pick books that have something familiar about them or are about one of her favorite topics.
This week’s Toddler Picks:
That’s Not My Train by Fiona Watt (author) and Rachel Wells (Illustrator)
Choo Choo! We’ve read several of these “Usbourne touchy-feely” books now and she picked this one up, both because of the train, and because it looks similar in style to the other books. Interestingly enough (to a mom anyway) , I enjoy the touchy feely part more than she does. She just likes the repetitive text.
Moo Baa La La La by Sandra Boynton
The toddler has read this book about a zillion times with the iPad app, so she was excited to see the real thing. Though, she kept trying to see if the pictures would respond to touch like the iPad app pictures do…
This week’s Mommy Picks:
Ribbit Rabbit by Candace Ryan (Author) and Mike Lowery (Illustrator)
I really love this book. It was out on the shelf, selected by one of the librarians, and I couldn’t resist the hilariously clever title. Inside, the text is equally hilarious and equally clever. And the story stars an adorable frog, a rabbit (or a “hop hop” as my daughter calls it), as well as a robot. Beep boop!
Busy Birdies by John Schindel (Author) and Steven Holt (Photographer)
My daughter wanted a book with an owl in it and I picked this one. Lovely rhyming text accompanied by gorgeous photos of colorful birds in action.
