Books of the Week: Birthday Edition

by Stacey


Tomorrow Katherine turns 8. I will reading to her class as a way of celebrating her special day. Over the past week, she has been thinking a lot about what books she wants us to read.

Earlier this week, we sat on the floor surrounded by picture books. I pulled out a bunch of our newer titles as I often think it is fun to bring books that most of the class won’t have heard before. That said, there have also been years that I have brought our most favorite, oldie but goodies.

This year though our collection is new and Katherine chose the following titles:

Silver Button by Bob Graham because she loves babies.

Open This Little Book by Jesse Klausmeier because the little book inside is super cool


Mr. Tiger Goes Wild by Peter Brown because it’s just a great book.

    Will have to check these out! My husband is reading to M’s Kindergarten class today and the pressure is ON! She wants him to bring “funny” books…which now realize are woefully sparse in her collection. But we found some good ones, like The Hueys in the New Sweater? Have you read it? Happy 8 to your daughter!

  2. I always love your book recommendations, Stacey!  Have fun reading to the class today, and happy birthday to your girl!

    Aww, happy bday! I love that she’s about 1/2 year ahead of my daughter. Always gives me a preview.
