These books and are too cute to miss. So put away the classics (just for today)! Break out your Library card and run to the library and try something new! Here are a few brand spanking new, (well to me) books to add to your list.
“The Bus For Us” by Suzanne Bloom is an insanely simple but totally engaging book. My son loved it because each page brings a new vehicle to the bus stop, and I loved it because of the children represented were diverse. There is a good repetitive rhyme as well.
“Sink or Swim” by Valerie Coulman is my new favorite book! It’s about a cow who is determined to learn how to swim. He seeks out advice, gets all the equipment and never gives up! However, the story is a wonderful lesson about tenacity in the face of adversity. The cow just keeps trying!
“The List” by Hazel Hutchins is a really sweet story about a generous queen eager to shower a neighboring kingdom’s new prince with all the best gifts, and her little daughter who in the end provides the best and simplest of them all. Very cute and a good lesson about the best things being free, simple and from the heart.
