books for four year olds: our library loot this week

July 29, 2011

After a few weeks off from the library, we finally went back. I had grown tired of reading the stuff on our shelves, so we needed something new to enjoy.

We hit the jackpot.

I don't know how we got so lucky, but here are some of our favorites:
Fly High, Fly Low (50th Anniversary ed.)
Fly High, Fly Low  by Don Freeman
One of my very favorite author/illustrators, but had never read this one. It's so great. The story of two pigeons and their babies. You're going to love it.
One Fine Day
One Fine Day by Nonny Hogrogian
Just to warn you, the fox gets his tail chopped off on the first page, but it gets sewed back on in the end. My four year old is fine with this--but maybe yours won't be. This is a great read aloud book because there is so much repetition. And the illustrations are just lovely.
Little Beauty
Little Beauty by Anthony Browne
Charming story about an unlikely friendship between a gorilla and a kitten.
The 108th Sheep
The 108th Sheep by Ayano Imai
Need a good bedtime story? This one is just gorgeous. And fun. Especially if you like sheep.
The Adventures of Polo
The Adventures of Polo by Regis Faller
I don't usually like wordless books, so when Juliet picked it out, I admit, I tried to convince her to leave it at the library. But she really wanted it, so we checked it out. I'm so glad we did! It's wonderful! I love it. Now I want to check out the others in the series.
Polo: The Runaway Book (Adventures of Polo)Polo and Lily (Adventures of Polo)Polo and the Dragon (Adventures of Polo)Polo and the Magic Flute (Adventures of Polo)
Have you ever read any of these? Any recommendations?
Fancy Nancy: Splendiferous Christmas
Fancy Nancy: Splendiferous Christmas by Jane O'Connor
I finally did it. I read my FIRST Fancy Nancy book. Yes, you read that right. I've never read one until this past week. Again, I didn't think I would like it. But it was good. I liked it. I think we'll get more. I'd love to hear which one is your favorite.
Children of the Forest (Mini Edition)
Children of the Forest  by Elsa Beskow
Mostly, I like the illustrations in this book, but Juliet was enchanted by the story. The little toadstool hats remind me of all those crafty mushroom things I'm seeing everywhere these days. I like those mushrooms.

What about you? What have you been reading this week?
