Banana by Ed Vere In this story, two little monkeys learn about sharing and about saying the magic word, "please". While I found this book a little too silly, Logan LOVES it. Maybe it's the illustrations, maybe it's that it only has two words, "Banana" and "Please". I guess he feels confident to read it!
For Just One Day by Laura Leuck In this rhyming story, a group of children imagine what it would be like to be a variety of animals for just one day. In the end, the kids decide the thing they most want to be is themselves. Good self-esteem booster. The illustrations are adorable and different. If you check this out, look for the under the sea page. So cute!
I also picked up Brown Bear, Brown Bear audio book. It includes a CD with the audio reading by Gwyneth Paltrow. She does an excellent job! It's an interesting new twist to one of our favorites. Currently, this is Tyson's favorite book. Tyson just turned 17 months this weekend and he is in LOVE with animals of all shapes and sizes!
So, that's what we are lounging around reading this rainy week. What about you? Have you picked up any great books at the library or elsewhere lately? Please share! I'd love to pass along your great reads.
