What The Littlest Apple is Reading

What My Child Is Reading Button

Maisy Goes to Preschool, by Lucy Cousins: We love the simple and colorful illustrations by Lucy Cousins in our other Maisy books, and The Littlest Apple enjoys seeing Maisy do some of the same things he does at school (paint, play outside, snacks, potty, naptime).

If You Take a Mouse to School, by Laura Numeroff: A cute follow-up to If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, with the same mouse and boy from the first one.  The circular “gimmick” of this series seems a little stretched in this one, but it is still a cute book about school.

Just Me and My Puppy, by Mercer Mayer: We’ve recently discovered a couple of the Little Critter books.  In this one, the Little Critter brings home a puppy much to his parents’ surprise, and tries to train and care for his not-always-well-behaved puppy.

Llama Llama Misses Mama, by Anna Dewdney: Now we own all 3 of the Llama books, and this one is perfect for us right now!  The Littlest Apple has started having some trouble again at dropoff at school, so he can relate to the Little Llama in this book who misses his Llama Mama while he’s at school, but eventually starts to have fun playing and coloring.  The best part?  Mama Llama always comes back!

From books, reviews

  • You may like “The Kissing Hand” if you’re dealing with school drop-off anxiety. It’s very good.

  • Thanks for joining this week. We love Little Critter books here as well. I hope that the dropoff anxiety gets better soon – we enjoyed DW’s Guide to Preschool from Marc Brown and My Preschool by Anne Rockwell.
