Lola Loves Stories
Lola Reads to Leo
by Anne McQuinn
illustrated by Rosalind Beardshaw

Three delightful stories about a young girl who loves to read. Beautiful illustrations!

In Lola at the Library we see Lola pack her backpack and head to the library where she picks out books and attends Story Time. Afterwards she and her Mom go out for juice and lattes (this always cracks up the grown ups).

In Lola Loves Stories we see Lola reading books every day with her parents and see how she turns the stories into imaginary play.

In Lola Reads to Leo Lola has just become a big sister (ironically most of this week’s Itsy Bitsy friends just became big brothers or sisters are are about to!) Lola reads to her baby brother in many different situations and helps out her parents.

All three are wonderful books about families and reading together.

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom
by Bill Martin, Jr. and John Archambault
illustrated by Lois Ehlert

ROLLICKING rhyming book about the ABC’s!  Lots of families are familiar with this classic and joined in the chant!

Count the Monkeys
Count the Monkeys
by Mac Barnett
illustrated by Kevin Cornell

Hysterical counting book where the only thing we don’t count are monkeys. One of my newer favorites with tons of audience participation.

we are in a book
We Are in a Book!
by Mo Willems

Another goofy fun book all about reading. Kids love Elephant & Piggie!

pete the cat
Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons
by Eric Litwin
illustrated by James Dean

Another of my all time favs! Fun rapping story about Pete losing his buttons – which of course we have to count – with a wonderful message about not fretting over losing STUFF.

little white fish 11
Little White Fish Counts to 11
by Guido Van Genechten

Cute story about Little White Fish as he plays peek-a-boo with his underwater friends. We get to do a lot of counting and looking for his friends behind pull down flaps.

by Kristine O’Connell George
illustrated by Maggie Smith

Adorable little board book all about BOOKS! How we use books, treat books, what else we can do with books (party hat!). Very sweet and just right for this age group.

dino vs library
Dinosaur vs. the Libary
by Bob Shea

Dinosaur is used to getting his way and being LOUD! But when he goes to Story Time at the Library who will win?!?

what daddies do best
What Dadies Do Best
by Laura Numeroff
illustrated by Lynn Munsinger

Cute and simple with wonderful illustrations. A very nice tribute to Daddies. This book flips over to become What Mommies Do Best and when read back to back there are many funny differences shown in how 2 parents may parent differently, but equally wonderfully.
