Here is the much-anticipated conclusion to my book list. Seriously, I know you have been anxiously awaiting the finale in the series. (ha, ha, ha).
Here are Will’s favorite books at almost 4.5 years old! Notice a theme….all animal related!
First, he loves almost any and all Dr Seuss books.
Will loves all things related to animals so Giraffes Can’t Dance is great. Lots of animals. It’s silly and involves dancing. And most importantly, it rhymes. And has a good lesson about how it’s okay to be different.
I think I have mentioned this one before but we are still in love with Wild About Books. It’s about a librarian who moves into the zoo. It is truly brilliant (and funny and rhymes). I think this is my all-time favorite book.
The rest of the books came from Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library. LOVE this organization! They send out a book each month to kids from the time they are born until they enter kindergarten. So each month we receive 3 books in the mail for the kids. And some of our favorite books have been discovered this way. Go see if this is offered in your state and register your kids…it’s free!
Will loves My Lucky Day. Though I don’t think he really gets what’s going on…the fox is going to cook the pig for dinner but the pig keeps distracting him. The pig does every day for an easy bath and dinner. But he loves all the silly things the fox does and can almost recite the book by memory.
Read to Tiger is silly and has lots of sound effects. And Will always ends the book with “that silly Tiger”. I just discovered there is a second book so I need to track that down.
And Will loves Ladybug Girl and Bumblebee Boy. They pretend to be super heroes and that is Will’s current love these days. It’s a really good book. And I am now seeing Ladybug Girl has an entire series of books! Poor Bumblebee Boy only has one book, I guess we’ll add that to our collection soon.
