E's Reads (2)

I am a little late with this post. I had forgot all about it until I saw these books piled up in E's room. I almost put them away before I remembered they were there for a reason. Some classics and some new favorites (of the little girl's).

Caillou: Happy Halloween by Chouette

This books is really cute and A favorite of the little girl. She loves Caillou. This book takes an episode and puts it on pages. Bright colorful pages, cute story and the voice is the same as the show. Not a bad holiday book. Of course, it is way past Halloween and I would be happy if this one didn't get picked for awhile.

Caillou: Spend The Day With Me by Chouette

This book is a touch and feel book with no real story. It has nice illustrations, though and the little girl has enjoyed touching and feeling all the different textures. The sticky jam is her favorite. I prefer the books with a story.

Where is Baby's Belly Button by Karen Katz

This book is adorable. Cute babies, flaps to open and position words and body parts. It is interactive, engaging, educational for a toddler and another favorite of the little girl. It has seen a lot of use and has lost a few flaps but she still loves to look for baby's hands, feet and belly button.

Good Night Gorilla by Peggy Rathmann

I love this book and so does the little girl. She has so much fun following the gorilla through the zoo as he lets all the animals out so they can go sleep in the Joe, the Zookeeper's house. As a teacher, I appreciate the little teaching points throughout. The matching colors of the keys to the cages, number of animals. The little girl loves looking for the moon and balloon on all the pages. Her favorite page: The Zookeeper's wife's big eyes of surprise.

Have You Seen My Cat? by Eric Carle

This isn't one of my favorite Carle books, but the little girl does enjoy looking at all the different cats. I do like the illustrations. I mean, it's Eric Carle. They are always amazing.

I will be reviewing the books we read for Becca from Lost in Books' KidLit Challenge. I will be trying to read and review 80-100 books this year (Master Level).


  1. Great reviews! Good Night, Gorilla is one I really enjoyed reading to my pre-k students!
