We have found so many good books lately, I honestly don’t know where to begin. I try to keep these posts short so they’ll actually get read, but this one may be a tad bit longer. :)
My favorites this week:
M’s favorite this week:
Bumpa Rumpus and the Rainy Day by Joanne Reay and Adriano Gon. This is a book for when you are in a silly mood; it’s a lot of fun! Bumpa Rumpus wakes up on a very, very, extremely, rainy day and listens to all the sounds the rain makes – plup-plup from the gutter, tik-tik from the glass, tom-tom on the roof, and ta-toosh on the grass. Every page is filled with fun sounds and it has an overall great rhyming rhythm. It’s pretty fun to read out loud! I have to admit I’m happy when M picks this one. :) There is a fun *sorta-surprise* ending too!!
And one more! This is the one I’m most excited about because I bought it from the sale cart at our library for 50 cents!!!We’re Going on a Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen and illustrated by Helen Oxenbury. I should mention, anything by illustrated by Helen Oxenbury is sure to be a good book. I haven’t found one yet that we didn’t absolutely love. This is a classic, and I’m sure many of you have read it. If you haven’t, read it as soon as you can! This adorable family goes on a bear hunt through tall, wavy grass, a deep, cold river, some swampy mud, and on and on. Each part of their trek has a great sound effect that goes along with it - “squelch squerch” through the mud. And of course, they are not afraid, not one tiny bit… until they actually see a bear. :) The ending is just terribly exciting if you are a 3 year old boy! This is on our top ten list and I’m so happy to have found it at such a bargain!

Have a beautiful day! :)
