Early Bird on Sesame Street
We love Sesame Street with all their great classic characters, and new ones too. Each month, we've been able to find new Sesame Street books we haven't read yet. This one is about Big Bird waking up early and exploring the neighborhood to find someone awake to play with. He learns a lot about how busy some people are in the neighborhood early in the morning.
Halloween in Anopha
A lot of the Thomas the Train books have more words than we're used to right now so I try to find the ones that aren't as long. In a lot of the books, (as a mom friend puts it) the trains are like grumpy old men. So we try to find stories that have some other things in them like things to name or identify (like animals or equipment) or the trains are focused on a goal like doing a good job. We got this one before Halloween, yet J is still wanting to read it even though I explained Halloween is over. The Halloween theme is okay, but I didn't like the story line about the black cat bringing bad luck to Thomas. I skipped those parts.
Handy Manny Firehouse Tools
This is a fun lift-the-flap book where Manny and his tools have been asked to help fix the firehouse alarm bell. There are many things happening in the story like getting a look inside a fire house, things happening in the neighborhood even safety measures during a fire. Again, this is a theme J doesn't get tired of.
Handy Manny Cookie Rescue
My son likes this one even more than the firehouse tools. He has me read it a few times during the day and then my husband a couple times at night. He can't seem to get enough of it. It's a sweet story about Manny and the tools helping a lady get a new oven into her house so she can bake her famous cookies for a bake off.
This is a sweet little story about a little old lady and her pet "puppy" (elephant). It has a little humor too. J loved it the minute I found it at the library. He really likes "reading" it on his own too.
The Pumpkin Patch Parable
I love finding books from our library that have a message about Christ. Instead of celebrating Halloween, this book shares an alternative message for autumn about the harvest season. On each page of the book, she shares a different verse to go along with the story about the farmer and the food that he is growing. It is also very colorful with great illustrations. This is a book that J has liked to tote around with him when we leave the house.
Richard Scarry's Busiest Fire Fighters Ever
J loves anything with fire trucks. This one has lots of them. It is a Golden Book just filled with firetrucks, fire fighters and even a dump truck and a steam roller. The Richard Scarry's stories are so fun with all the different animal characters and how they fit together in the neighborhood.
