What We're Reading

We really liked this book. It was a great twist on the original version. All the dinosaurs in the museum come to life and Santasaurus arrives and he has 8 dinosaurs pulling his sleigh. D has loved dinosaurs since he was just a little guy.

Jan Brett is so great. It seems like every week we go to the library during the winter, we come home with one of her books.

Even though D is 3 1/2 he still loves lift-a-flap books. Hey, I still like them too. And we have always been a huge fan of Corduroy.

Froggy books are also always a hit in our house. Froggy has a great Christmas with his friends and family.

Our non holiday book for the week. I am a lover of all Eric Carle books but I have to be honest, this is not one of my favorites. Not sure why. In the book animals call the sloth lazy and boring. The lesson is great. Do things your own way and be true to yourself.

Maybe after reading all of the happy, feel good books about Christmas, made this one feel lackadaisical. (An awesome word from this book.)

I have a dino lover, so we'll have to check out the dinosaur Christmas book!

Thanks for joining this week! I heard about the first book on your list somewhere else - and it will definitely be on our list next year. We are big Corduroy (and flap book) fans here as well. I have looked at this book of Eric Carle in the library and didn't like it either :)

What I loved about "Slowly, Slowly, Slowly," Said the Sloth" is the vocabulary. It has wonderful vocabulary to teach your children, it kind of reminds me of some of the Jannell Cannon books for its rich vocabulary.
And we're Froggy fans here too, and dinosaurs.
