I love finding really great books at the library, chasing after a toddler can make it hard to read them before leaving the library, so I just grab a whole bunch and hope they are good. Of course my son always picks out a few on his own too!
” I Like It When…” by Mary Murphy is a gem of a board book, it’s simple, bright and sweet. A big penguin and a little penguin do many of the things any parent and child do with the repetitive text “I like it when…” at the start of each page. The truly brilliant aspect of this book is it’s unspecific about who the caregiver is , a child can relate it to any loving adult in their life.
” Unlikely Pairs” by Bob Raczka is awesome! I am adding this to my must buy list for sure! The author pairs two very different works of art side by side creating an interesting and narrative tableau. This one is my favorite, pretty genius I think!
” Truck Driver Tom “by Monica Wellington is my son’s favorite pick from this trip to the library. The story is simple, Tom and his puppy drive produce from the farm to the market and see the country side and much more along the way. The best part of this book are the fun bright and detailed illustrations, there is a wide variety of trucks, cars , emergency and construction vehicles! Also it’s a great lesson about how our food gets from the farm to us!
