I’ve been wanting to share some recent reads I’ve really enjoyed.
–Elsie’s Bird written by Jane Yolen and illustrated by David Small
It’s hard to decide which is more beautiful and evocative, the words or the illustrations (we’ll call it a tie). A lovely picture book for older kids.
–Pigs Make Me Sneeze! by Mo Willems
My sister-in-law gave this to my five-year-old for her birthday and she loves it. It is a great early reader because “Aa–aa–aa–choooo!” is such a fun word to read over and over again!
Younger Middle Grade:
–The Talented Clementine and Clementine, Friend of the Week by Sara Pennypacker and narrated by Jessica Almasy (pictures by Marla Frazee)
My seven-year-old and I have been listening to these audiobooks and they are fabulous. Clementine is such a hilarious, spunky character. The narrator does a fantastic job, but I’m sure these would be great to read as well. We are listening to them out of order; the first book is called just plain Clementine, but we haven’t had a chance to listen to that one yet because it is always checked out.
