Sunday Snapshot {Will’s favorite books}

 

Since day one Will has preferred books to toys.  Most nights he takes books to bed too.  As long as he has Frog and books he’s pretty content.  Here is what Will is currently loving. (this list is more for me to remember than anything). 

Will LOVES these two books.  I think it’s the pictures.  One is more focused on adoption but the other one kinda mentions it as well.  He likes to talk about the pictures too so it’s usually a good opener to talk about our special family.

We Belong Together: A Book About Adoption and FamiliesThe Family Book

 

I think this is a neat book and one I would have loved when I was little.  Will loves to say “Do you see that?”  when we read this book. He likes to study all of the pictures and investigate every scene.

Up Above and Down Below

To hear Will say “chameleon” will make your day.  He pronounces it correctly, he just emphasizes every syllable. He knows every word by heart in this book.  This is one he reads a lot at school.

The Mixed-Up Chameleon

We’ve read this little bible from cover to cover several times.  Sometimes all in one sitting.  Though usually he just wants to read about Jonah and the whale (and the people of Nineveh).  He likes to talk about Nineveh a lot. And he likes to pray for Jonah, the whale and Nineveh every night. Lately he’s wanted to read about Noah, Daniel and David & Goliath too. 

The Beginner's Bible: Timeless Children's Stories

We do not YET own Dinosaur Bones.  But Will has watched the Scholastic movie/reading on on-demand too many times to count.  We have checked the book out from the library too.  Will likes to study the book intensely and knows every word.  A few months ago this book was Will’s prize for potty training but that didn’t work.  But he still asks when he’s going to get this book…..it’s on it’s way now.

Dinosaur Bones

Another library book we don’t own yet but it’s in the mail too.  This is one that Will has also watched the Scholastic version too many times and knows every word in the book.  I love the on-demand version too, the reader is very animated.

Will also loves tons of Dr. Seuss books.  His preferred ones change from week to week.  Sometimes it’s the classic stories, sometimes it’s the little “Bright & Early” versions.  He also loves anything about Dora, Diego, Peter Pan, Goldilocks or the Lion King.
