This month I am still reading autumn and Thanksgiving themed books to the kiddo, with a few extraneous books thrown in for fun. I mean, when you are shopping the library shelves, the books just beckon like jewels sometimes, am I right?
Thanksgiving in the White House by Gary Hines: This book was a lot to read but fascinating! I am not sure how much a small toddler would enjoy it, but maybe an older kid would. Briefly mentions the possible execution of a Civil War soldier so if that sort of thing bothers you, stay away from this book. I really enjoyed this book!
The Busy Little Squirrel by Nancy Tafuri: Wyatt loved this one - it had huge illustrations and quick little sentences. Fun, simple read for a child, or for a read aloud.
The Squirrels' Thanksgiving by Steven Kroll: This was a bit longer picture book as well. It was a little dry, but had a good message overall, to be kind and thankful for other people, especially the ones we love.
What is Punk by Eric Morse: My husband found this one but we both loved it! We are adding it to Wyatt's permanent library - if you grew up listening to punk or still listen, you will like this book too. It mentions all the big names, including Iggy Pop and Detroit.
Little Owl's Night by Divya Srinivasan: Probably got the biggest reaction from Wyatt out of them all. He squealed, smacked the pages, scratched them (didn't damage them) - I would say this book was a success. Another book we are adding to our own library. I love to read owl books in November - this is when all the owl prowls start! We are going to one in December (without Wyatt) - be on the lookout for my recap of that night.
