We're enjoying some fun books right now -- mostly from the library. I thought I'd share Maia's current favorites.
The Biggest, Best Snowman by Margery Cuyler and illustrated by Will Hillenbrand is easily Maia's current top choice.
She has the entire book memorized as we found out to our surprise one bedtime when she "read" it to us rather than the other way around. Maia is fascinated by snowmen and likes all books about them, probably because we never get enough snow to actually make one. I'll have to take her up north one of these days... I still remember the three feet of snow we got on April 1st one year in Boston.
Maia also loves Mama Provi and the Pot of Rice by Sylvia Rosa-Casanova and illustrated by Robert Roth.
It's about a grandmother who makes a huge pot of arroz con pollo for her sick granddaughter and trades bowls of it for other delicious side dishes on her way up the eight flights of stairs to her granddaughter's apartment.
Happy Winter by Karen Gundersheimer is one of my favorites from childhood that I'm now enjoying again with Maia. I tracked this copy down used on Amazon and am so glad to have it again.
It's a fun sing-songy read about two sisters and what they do on a winter day -- go sledding, make snow angels, bake a cake, dress up, play hide and seek inside with a friend, etc.
I picked up Me and My Amazing Body by Joan Sweeney and illustrated by Annette Cable from the library because Maia kept asking about skeletons and body parts.
She especially likes to look at our "veins and arteries" on our wrists and other places on the body where you can see them through the skin. This was a decent intro but I'd love to look for some other body books for her. Any recommendations?
What books are you and your kiddos reading and enjoying?
