Paris Cat is a good addition to a Europe continent box. It tells the story of a cat who runs out of the apartment to chase a mouse. He gets lost in the streets of Paris and in doing so, we get to a tour of the city. The illustrations are beautiful watercolors and could lead to an art lesson.
Can I Play Too? by Mo Willems is one Bear can read to me. Tonight I actually fell asleep as she read to me; talk about role reversals! The story, as most of Willem’s stories, has a funny twist ending.
How the Reindeer Got their Antlers is a Bear choice. She always seems to manage to sneak a Christmas book into our bag. I prefer to keep Christmas books for December. Bear has deemed this book so special, she has wrapped it so she can open it tomorrow. I thought it was a cute story.
Mouse’s First Halloween is another one that Bear delights in reading herself. It is a rhyming story that flows nicely and there is a pattern to the story that makes it great for early readers. I plan on checking out more books by Lauren Thompson.
