Here are the books we read in February!
One of my all time favorite read alouds EVER! Pete gets his brand new shoes in all sorts of goo that turns his white shoes all sorts of colors, but does Pete cry? Goodness NO! Adorable, hilarious, wonderful message and the kids all join in. What more could you ask for in a picture book?
Three white mice get into a colorful mess and discover what happens when the mix colors together. Perfect for introducing secondary colors!
Dog starts the day out with just one black spot but quickly gets colorfully messy as he gets dripped on with jam and paint and so much more. Nice combination of color recognition and counting. (I think I partly enjoy this book because this has happened to our own little white dog!)
Funny funny book about colors and getting dressed. Kids absolutely love the end when the turkey finally gets his clothing on the right way at the wrong time!
Classic rhyming book with fabulous and big and colorful illustrations. Always a hit at Story Time!
Our little library is so lucky to have a set of these fabulous board books which are now out of print. Little White Fish has been an Itsy Bitsy favorite for a long time. In this story Little White Fish is looking for his Mommy and finds many different and colorful ocean creatures. Cute as can be, with simple text it is always fun to read this book!
Simple board book for early color recognition. Photos of adorable baby faces wearing easily recognizable colored items – red bow, blue hat, etc.
Very sweet story of a preschool girl trying to make a special Valentine for her Mommy. Scissors are hard! Beautiful drawings and a very nice message.
This is the perfect snuggle book! It describes all different kinds of kisses – butterfly, sloppy, hand, etc. Simple text and cute illustrations, and everyone kisses their little ones when you read this out loud!
I Love You Through and Through
by Bernadette Rossetti Shustak
Illustrations by Caroline Jayne Church
My favorite bedtime book because of the simple and beautiful message about unconditional love – and partly because the sweet drawings remind me so much of my youngest son. Very simple rhyming test.
Cute book showing all kinds of hugs – nice use of opposites.
Another very simple board book showing recognizable baby/toddler activities.
