A Little Bit of Love by Cynthia Platt
One Little Blueberry by Tammi Salzano
Another bright and colorful book, with the illustrations done in watercolor, One Little Blueberry is a cute little counting book with a surprise ending. I like when counting books actually tell a story. I have enjoyed reading this over and over to J-jo. Bear likes it as well because she loves stories told in rhyme. It’s a good book to add if you are doing an insect theme as many insects are featured in it (though it wouldn’t be a book to learn about these insects, but to look at insects from an artistic perspective).
My Mom Has X-ray Vision by Angela McAllister
If you were to buy just one book in this list, this would be my recommendation. All kids can relate to the feeling that their mom can see through walls. It is a book loved by both my children. Surprisingly, J-jo will sit through it even though it is long for his age. He is always pulling it off the shelf and bringing it to me to read to him. There is something about the cat illustration that really grabs his attention and he looks for the cat on every page. Bear likes it because “it is funny! The mommy always knows what he is doing when he is being naughty.” I like seeing the illustrations and how they explain just how the mom can know what her son is doing even though he is in a different room. If you don’t look at the side illustration, you really do think she has x-ray vision!
Disclaimer: Tiger Tales provided these books; however, the opinions of the books are my own honest opinions. I truly am enjoying reading these books over and over to my children. I would enjoy them even if they had come from the library or been bought with my own money.
