Bear’s all time two favorite books this month have been Over and Over by Charlotte Zolotow and The Magic Porridge Pot by Paul Galdone. She asks for them at least two times a day each, sometimes three.
This one is the story of a little girl who is trying to understand the special days that come throughout the year. “What comes next?” she keeps asking her mother after a special day passes. As all of the Charlotte Zolotow books we love, this one is a sweet, nostalgic book with peaceful illustrations.
In this one, a little girl lives with her mother. They don’t have much food. One day a lady gives the little girl a magic pot that promises porridge that never runs out, but the lady warns her never forget the words to stop the little pot from making porridge. It’s not my favorite book, but apparently Bear loves it.
J-jo’s favorite was Doggies
by Sandra Boynton. He loves dogs in books, but doesn’t like the real thing.
And I liked the book A Good Day
by Kevin Henkes. It starts out the animals are having a bad day, but then they see the other side of the coin and realize it’s a good day after all.
