The Library List: Week of December 4

We live in a great neighborhood. Even by city standards, it is extremely walkable. Two great parks, grocery stores, great kid-friendly dining, book stores, wine shops and one of the city’s bigger libraries all within a few minutes walk.

This past week, we moved to a great new place just behind the library. As the weather continues to turn wintry, we’ll be making many more trips and I hope this can become a part of our Sunday morning routine.

Our visit last week was cut short when we ran into a friend and decided – after much, rather noisy chasing throughout the stacks – to head across the street to the park.

This week, we spent more time searching for a few favorites (the If You Give A…  series) and some seasonal reads. The holiday-themed books were nearly all checked out, but we did score an amazingly intricate pop-up cut paper version of The Night Before Christmas.

Here’s the full list of this week’s library finds:

  • The Tiny Seed, Eric Carle
  • Teeth Are Not for Biting, Elizabeth Verdick
  • I’m All Dressed, Robie H. Harris     *Kid’s Pick
  • So Many Days, Alison McGhee
  • If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, Laure Joffe Numeroff
  • Sam’s Winter Hat, Albert Lamb
  • Roberto Walks Home, Ezra Jack Keats
  • Pet Show, Ezra Jack Keats
  • Bus Stop, Bus Go!, Daniel Kirk      *My Favorite
  • If You Give a Pig a Pancake, Laura Numeroff
  • Honey…Honey…Lion!, Jan Brett
  • A Child’s Good Morning Book, Margaret Wise Brown
  • The Night Before Christmas: A Magical Cut Paper Edition, Clement C. Moore, Niroot Puttapipat

A.’s favorite was clear by the fifth time I read I’m All Dressed, but it was more difficult for me to settle on a favorite. I absolutely love the artwork and diversity of Ezra Jack Keats’ books. And, I love how much A. loves the cute If You Give A… series.
Eventually, I landed on Bus Stop, Bus Go! by Daniel Kirk. Here’s why: the cute story and its simple, short sentence will work for new readers and tots alike. I also love the bright, modern cartoon style.

Next week will be a quick trip since Grandma and Grandpa are visiting, so we’ll be researching ahead of time for a few good picks. Look for next week’s list on Monday!
