i love kids books and i'm very picky..
-a wish to be a christmas tree
-why christmas trees aren't perfect
-the light of christmas
-mary engelbreit's christmas from A to Z
-mary engelbreits version of "the night before christmas" - very whimiscal images
in general (depends on your dd's age - mine are 4 and 2):
-weaving the rainbow
-little yellow pear tomatoes
-it's time to sleep, you crazy sheep (there are so many books about sheep and i find a lot of them annoying.. but this one has me cracking up.. a little girl wants to count her sheep so she can go to sleep, but the sheep have other plans about what they
want to do)
-there's a sea in my bedroom - beautiful book about a young child's fear of water, we got it because our dd was afraid of water for a while
-daddy promises (although this one has some stuff about god and jesus, so skip if you're not into that)
-the national trust book of fairy tales (i like this fairy tale book the best because the tales are tied to actual places in the world rather than just being random tales - also the endings seem a lot nicer/complete)
-scott gustafon's mother goose nursery rhymes is the nicest general mother goose book i've seen - the images are very sweet even when the original poetry is not.
-wombat goes walkabout
the book "apple cake" looks good but i haven't had a chance to read it... maybe tonight! also "room on a broom" - looks a little suess-ish but with a lot less jibberish if you know what i mean. but it is only in my cart at present.
i have a lot more lurking in our cupboard... i just can't think of them. oh, the little house series too..
|My daughter quite likes the Catherine and Laurence Anholt books, as do I
i just checked a couple out just now... the magical garden of claude monet is my girls' type of book.
laurence anholt looks like a great kids writer.... argh, i should of checked out of cart and completed the order before checking his books out. LOL.
