More Great Books From the Public Library!

A few of my students have asked which books my family and I have borrowed from the library this week.  I’ve included our favourites below.  Let me know if any of these books are your favourites too or if you have any book recommendations.

This is my new favourite book!  I like it so much I changed the header of this website to my favourite line from this book “Books Beat Boredom”- so true!  There is nothing like a great book.  The author/illustrator is one of my favourites too- Mo Willems!

My 3-year-old has a favourite song.  It is “The Wheels on the Bus”.  Consequently, he enjoys any book that has to do with the song.  This week we found Karen Katz’s version that has babies as the passengers on the bus.

This book was on the “New Books” shelf at the public library.  The cover looked funny so I thought we’d try it.  I’m so glad I picked this up.  This is a modern fairytale that has a princess and a pig switch roles- the pig becomes “Priscilla” and the princess becomes “Pigmella”.

You may be thinking “another David Shannon book?”  YES!  Pirates are big in my house and this book fits in perfectly.  This book has a sequel titled Pirates Don’t Change Diapers which I highly recommend as well.

I have read the original book Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? many times so I thought it was time to try this version which uses North American animals.  I hope our school library has this book because it is the perfect book to accompany our Animal Unit in Science.  In fact, many of the animals in this book we have learned about during our animal report writing.
