What the Littlest Apple is Reading

Tuesday, by David Wiesner: I requested this book from the library because it was on a list of books about frogs, which my son has been interested in lately.  This is such a neat book!  There aren’t many words, other than the introduction of “Tuesday evening, around eight,” but this is a beautifully illustrated, mysterious journey of frogs that ride lily pads like magic carpets.  There are several eyewitnesses to their night-time adventure, all equally befuddled.  As the sun comes up, the magic of the flying lily pads fades, and the frogs must head back to the pond.

Jamberry, by Bruce Degen:  This is the second time we’ve borrowed Jamberry from the library, and we still love it.  Beautiful berry filled illustrations, and magical, rhyming text follows a bear and a boy on a berry picking adventure, beginning with “One berry two berry pick me a blueberry” and on to “Raspberry Jazzberry Razzamatazzberry.”  The perfect accompaniment to your own berry-picking adventures!

A Good Day, by Kevin Henkes: This was a surprise hit at our house.  It begins as a bad day, when the little yellow bird loses his favorite tail feather, and the little white dog, little orange fox and little brown squirrel encounter similar difficulties.  But then things start looking up, and the story ends with a little girl discovering a yellow feather and yelling “Mama!  What a good day!”  I absolutely love the message of this book….developing an attitude of gratitude for children!

Trouble at the Dinosaur Cafe, by Brian Moses: Picked out by The Littlest Apple himself, this book is really cute!  A bullying T-Rex interrupts snack time at the Dinosaur Cafe.  Terry Triceratops is called (via “mobile phone”) to help out.  They jump on T-Rex’s belly and tickle his feet until he leaves.
