I was going to do a themed book post but decided to highlight the books that my 3 year old son has asked to read over and over again this week. What could be a better recommendation than that?
Chief Rhino To The Rescue by Sam Lloyd was an instant hit with my son and I had to sneak it out of the house yesterday to return it to the library without him knowing. It's a simple but fun book about a fire chief with the best intentions but who is a little too eager to save the day.
Baby On The Way by Martha and William Sears and Christie Watts Kelly. I started reading my son books about having a baby as soon as I found out I was pregnant. We have read many many books and this one is the one my son has attached to. We had it out of the library , read it at night and when we were atthe bookstore he still wanted to read it. It's a good practical look at what to expect and how to talk to your child about the changes on the way. It does have a slight lean to attachment parenting style ( which we fit) but is pretty universal.
Meet The Orchestra by Ann Hayes. When I first read this book my son was too little to enjoy it. I thought it was a good non fiction book with animal characters sitting in for the musicians. Wow was I unprepared for my son's reaction to it when I pulled it back out this winter. It's never made it back to the bookshelf in his closet, instead it's been on his nightstand or his book rack ( where all the current favorites are housed) since. He loves the information about each instruments and loves acting out he would play them.
Construction Countdown by K.C Olson. This is another book that was a hit early on with my son ( well before age 2) and has continued to be a favorite now that he is 3-and-a-half. When he was little it was the construction vehicles that drew him in , now it's the counting on every page that keeps him interested. Great counting book for truck lovers!
