I get a lot of book selections from other blogs, so here are some picture books which we have enjoyed recently. The first one is similar to Harold and the Purple Crayon, except a dog is the main character. The girls loved this book by Louise Yates:
This year we studied China (including the Silk Road, the Great Wall, and Chinese characters). This is a book set in modern times which includes Chinese characters:
Another treasure by Anna Dewdney:
In this cute book the child llama gets bored at the grocery store and throws all the food out of the cart. Mama Llama explains that she doesn't like shopping either, but she likes spending time with her child. So then the child llama and she clean the store, work together to finish their shopping, and have a special day together. Several lessons to learn here!
In the tradition of Dr. Seuss, this cute book by Marilyn Sadler was enjoyed by my girls:
I highly recommend it!
