What The Littlest Apple is Reading, January 8
Since it’s been freezing out and we’re stuck indoors, we’ve been reading lots of books. Here are a few more books The Littlest Apple got for Christmas that we’ve been reading over and over and over again…
Knuffle Bunny, by Mo Willems: A cute story from the author of Don’t Let The Pigeon Drive The Bus. A little girl named Trixie goes to the laundromat with her Daddy, loses her stuffed animal, and says her first word. My son thinks the baby talk in this book is hilarious!
Hug, by Jez Alborough: What I love most about this book is the expressiveness and emotion conveyed with just a few words, the main one being “Hug.” The Littlest Apple adores this book…he made me read it to him about 5 times in a row yesterday, a record for any book (and you know how much he loves his truck books!!)
The Little Dump Truck, by Margery Cuyler: I found this one day at the bookstore when I wasn’t even looking for more books for The Littlest Apple. It’s got great retro-ish illustrations that show the dump truck going to a construction site then taking its load to the landfill. Lots of other kinds of trucks are shown too!
Finn Throws a Fit, by David Elliott: Could this book BE any more perfect for my Finn?! A little boy named Finn has such a big tantrum (over peaches, or is it something more than that?) that his tears flood the house, lightening in the kitchen, an earthquake rocks the world, etc. Any parent will certainly appreciate this one! It’s a good story, but obviously there’s an extra connection here because my son shares the character’s name.
