This week's Feed Me Books Friday theme is songbooks--which you know are one of my favorite kinds of books. However, I don't think I can say any more than I already have in my post about 100 songs to sing with your child!
There are seriously a ton of songbooks listed in that post and they are divided into various categories such as nursery rhymes, folk songs, religious songs, etc.
So, instead of repeating what I've already suggested, I thought I would share a few books that we've enjoyed this week.
This book was the most requested read this week. Dr. Cat is busy tending her patients at the hospital when she gets a call that Tomcat has broken his arm. She rushes to help him. The story tells of Tomcat's recovery and his decision to "never do anything silly again." (Which is what got him into the broken arm situation in the first place!) If your child likes stories about doctors, then I think he or she will love this one.
This is the funny story of a goose who raises a baby chicken. Only she doesn't know he's a chicken. But EVERYONE else does. Ben read this with Juliet first, so by the time I got around to reading it, I was startled at the end when Juliet yelled out the words on the last page, "MRS. GOOSE'S BABY WAS A CHICKEN!!" and then laughed delightedly. This is a fun one. Great for younger children, too.
Okay, so this one is a little weird, but we like it. An old man goes to a hill of millions of cats to pick one out to be his pet. He can't decide because they are all so beautiful, so he brings them all home. His wife doesn't know what they will do with millions of cats and eventually, the little furballs get hungry. So then they EAT each other up! (Yes, you read that right. Remember I told you this one was a little weird?) But one little cat doesn't get eaten and he becomes the old couple's pet. Like I said, sounds weird, but try it. You might like it. We did.
So what are you reading?
