What we're reading in our house

Inspired by Joanna, here is what we're reading in our house:

I Saw a Bullfrog by Ellen Stern.

My little dude LOVES the pictures and the fact that it is so incredibly silly. And that he can see what these things really look like in the back. I love the way it is fun to read out loud. The first few animals are the best though.

The Teeny-Tiny Woman by Paul Galdone

With voices this thing is magic. Even if you have to say teeny-tiny like a million times. My son gets so grossed out about the woman taking the bone to make soup. And you know what? Me too! She's in a freakin' graveyard! I love how he noticed the cabinet had eyes the first time around.

Beware of the Frog by William Bee

I love William Bee. And the Train brilliant. It is maybe my favorite train book. Those sounds are so fun! Whatever killed in storytime the one time I read it. But Beware of the Frog is a little darker. Fun, but dark! I wasn't sure how it was going to go over, but since my son's favorite pastime is to hit things with sticks, I was fairly confident it would go over well. It did. Especially the smelly thing. He was a little confused when sweet old Mrs. Collywobble turned into a frog and was (in my mind, understandably) pissed about it. But it was a hit regardless.

Yay - picture books! I think I checked out And the Train Goes... but I'll have to do it again. Train books are very popular in our house. We've read a couple cute ones that I'll have to post later.
