Books of the Week
Here are the two books both M and I loved this week (the ones in the carousel above are really good too!):
Little Bear’s Friend, by Else Minarik
I remember this book from my own childhood and so enjoyed sharing it with M! He is allowed to watch Little Bear on TV once in a while and just loves it – and now that he’s able to sit for a longer book I was anxious to introduce these to him. I know some of you have mentioned these books in your weekly posts, so thank you for reminding me of them! The simple illustrations in this book and the sweet story of friendship make it one that any child will love. It is separated into 4 chapters or stories, but M insists on reading the entire thing every time. And I am happy to oblige. ;)
Wilfred to the Rescue,by Alan MacDonald
This is part of a series called “Stories from Brambly Hedge”, and it’s the first one we’ve read. It’s very good, and just adventurous enough without being frightening. It teaches a bit about being brave and helping others as Wilfred the mouse helps rescues a small vole named Sissy who has drifted out into floodwaters during a game of “hide-and-squeak”. It’s a great book for my adventurous, brave little guy to act out again and again.
As usual, I’m linking this up to Mouse Grows, Mouse Learns, and to a new (to me) linky at The Adventure of Motherhood, called Feed Me Books Friday.
Have a beautiful day! :)
