library book list

January 13, 2012

I found this inside a storybook we read the other night. It's the book dedication by the author. As I read the words, it made me smile. 

If you read my blog, you are probably one of those parents who are on a quest to fill their children's childhoods with stories. 

I'm going to try to share a list of books every week (on Fridays) that you can use in your library trips the upcoming week. 

Although, I love getting book recommendations, I always find it frustrating when I have a long list of books that I'm looking for only to learn that our library only has a few of the titles. 

So, rather than give you a big list, I think I'll just share 5 that we are loving that week in the hopes that you will be able to find at least one or two of them in your own library. 

Here are our picks for this week: 
The magic of rainboots and umbrellas captivated Juliet. 

Rosie and Buttercup by Chieri Uegaki
Juliet really related to this story of a big sister who decides to give her little sister away. She then rethinks her decision and ends up trading her two most precious possessions to get her back. This is a really sweet story--especially for older siblings.

The Sea Monster by Chris Wormell
This one is scary. But in a good way. A sea monster lives at the bottom of the sea--but he is nice. He ends up saving a little boy who is swept out to sea. Juliet had her fingernails in her mouth through the entire thing. It's wonderful.

A Sick Day for Amos McGee by Phillip C. Stead
I'm late to the party on this one, but we finally checked it out. It's beautiful. And I really want Amos's peacock print blanket. For my own bed.

Posy by Linda Newberry
You know we love a good cat book. This one is gorgeously illustrated.

What should I look for this week?
