Four more fun children’s books that we really enjoyed!
One Cool Friend by Toni Buzzeo
This is a really cute story about a boy who brings home a penguin from the zoo as his new pet. His father is oblivious to the arrangement until the very end of the book. The illustrations are unique and remind me of the 1970’s for some reason. It’s a Caldecott Honor book, too.
Stellaluna by Janell Cannon
Stellaluna is separated from her mother when she is just a baby bat. A mother bird raises Stellaluna alongside her own babies, but she struggles to fit in. One night Stellaluna encounters other bats and discovers the wonderful things that she’s capable of.
This is a really interesting book which chronicles the journey of planning and building the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C. Kids will enjoy reading it because it’s chock full of informative tidbits and wonderful photos. It’s astounding how long it took for this museum to come into being!
Each Peach Pear Plum by Janet & Allan Ahlberg
Here’s another charming and simple book from Janet and Allan! The text is very simple rhyme and the pictures are an I Spy game featuring well-known nursery rhyme characters. I’ve always loved the illustrations in the books by the Ahlbergs–they are so quaint and adorable!
