Shark vs. Train by Chris Barton - Cricket LOVED this book, and the silliness of it. I loved how it cleverly differentiated tasks each would succeed at as well as tasks both would fail at. We both enjoyed how imagination was met with realism at the end of the book.
CookieBot!: A Harry and Horsie Adventure by Katie Van Camp - The librarian read this at story time a couple of weeks ago, and we've been trying to get our hands on it ever sense. Cricket asked for this book to be read over and over again while we had it, and was very sorry to return it to the library. I would call that a hit.
999 Tadpoles by Ken Kimura - This was an interesting tale of a mother and father frog having to move their 999 baby frogs to a new pond once the grew out of the tadpole stage and were taking up too much room. Cricket liked the drawings and all the different animals in the book.
Fancy Nancy: Stellar Stargazer! by Jane O'Connor - Fancy Nancy books are always a hit in our house. Cricket enjoys the stories and I love the language development. This was by far my favorite so far though. I really liked how the stars were introduced, and think it would be a great add on for an outer space unit.
BRAVE LITTLE TAILOR (Disney's Wonderful World of Reading) - This is one of Cricket's new favorites, I think because it was presented with characters that she knows and loves. The book was a good adaptation of the story, if I remember it correctly.
Bedtime Books (That we haven't already counted):The Berenstain Bears and the Prize Pumpkin
Word Play: Sight Words
That makes 196 books total so far for 2011. I'm almost at my 200 book goal! I highly recommend joining in at the Read to Me Picture Book Challenge.
