Knees, elbows, fingers, thumbs
Draw on all or draw on one.

The Puffin Book of Fantastic First Poems

The Puffin Book of Fantastic First Poems by June Crebbin
Our 8 year old’s English teacher introduced us to this book. When she has 3 minutes to wait for the lunch bell to ring, she takes out this book and regales the children with funny poetry. It keeps them calm and interested despite rumbling tummies, antsy feet, and minds ready for a break! These poems, from classic authors (Robert Louis Stevenson and Walter de la Mare) to contemporaries (Roger McGough and Michael Rosen), cover seven themes: animals, playtime, families, mealtimes, outings, curling up for bed and “whatever.”

Pull out Puffin’s Poems when
- there isn’t time for a full story before bed
- table manners are slacking (and poems work better than lectures)
- entertainment is a must while waiting in line during a family outing

A Mom's love story to rivaling sons. Each wants to know, "Who do you love best?" Clearly an experienced peacemaker, Mama offers just the right answers. She uses colors to express how, in a way, each one is loved the most. Whyte's (Boomer's Big Day) watercolors amplify the story's considerable emotional pitch. A great bedtime read-aloud.

What Do People Do All Day?

What Do People Do All Day? by Richard Scarry by Richard Scarry
What DO people do all day? Good question. (Some days I wonder what I've done!) Scarry introduces children to the world of work through his fun illustrated stories (animals dressed like people). He shows grocer cat protected by doggy cop and foxy mayor... Each one helps another and that's how communities (and families) are built. "Everyone is a worker..."

Scarry makes parents' work light. His books are so entertaining and easy to follow that even children who barely read have fun perusing this one on their own.

The Rhyme Bible Storybook

Rhyme Bible Storybook by Linda SattgastThe Rhyme Bible Storybook for Toddlers by Linda Sattgast and Toni Goffe by Linda Sattgast
A favorite for many families, including ours. These cheerful rhymes read like a song and they're easy for children to remember. The kids and I play a game with these fun verses: I leave out a word and they love filling in the blank. Filled with vivid, joyful illustrations, each story teaches Bible truths while giving children a reading time that's packed with giggles, entertainment, and leaves us all smiling.

The Rhyme Bible Storybook for Toddlers uses more simple language which makes the stories easily appreciated by little tykes.

Voices in the Park

insert image in small size linked to itself by Anthony Browne
Four people (apes really) and two dogs go to the park. The "story" is the collection of each person's perspective: from the overbearing mother and her shy son to the discouraged unemployed father and his outgoing daughter. You could hardly guess they're relating the same afternoon stroll!

Through colors, shapes, fonts, and words, Anthony Browne shows that each person has a unique point of view. Voices in the Park helps kids understand that there is more than meets one person's eye. Entertaining tool to address empathy, conflict, and personality.
