Recent Favorites

Stella-Bucca is now 18 months old and has developed some definite favorites in terms of books, even desiring to “read” some to me as she flips through the pages and recites the lines she remembers from our reading experiences.  Here’s a quick rundown of some of Bucca’s recent favorites.  I’ve found that all of these have really captured her attention and delighted her to the point of desired multiple readings in one sitting.  All except Carle’s book feature a set rhythm that provides a sense of order in the text, which may be a contributing factor in my Bucca’s interest…she LOVES music and dancing, and many of these books can be sung as they’re read.

Our list includes:

We’re Going on a Bear Hunt by Helen Oxenbury and Michael Rosen
