For the Preschooler:
Dear Mr. Blueberry is great for introducing how to write a letter with a salutation etc, but is also humorous because it is about a little girl who is convinced there is a blue whale in her pond.
Carmine A Little More Red – I love fractured fairy tales. In fact, I may already have posted about this book, but we love it dearly. I love how it has some fancy vocabulary like exquisite and knoll (although the word nincompoop is also in it).
How Rocket Loved to Read – either a Mouse Grows, Mouse Learns or Adventures in Mommydom recommendation. J-jo loved the dog but wouldn’t sit through the story. Bear loved the story and asked for it repeatedly.
For the Toddler:
Loved by both:
