Leo the Late Bloomer
I absolutely loved the message in this book; encouraging kids and parents both to remain patient and positive when it comes to learning and growing. Some kids are late bloomers, but that doesn’t mean that they aren’t capable of doing what the other kids are doing, it just means that they need a little more time.
Curious George is a classic book showcasing a curious monkey and his ensuing shenanigans. It’s fun for kids, but it also teaches them that acting on our curiosities can sometimes lead to trouble. It’s kind of sad that he was taken from his home in the wild to live in a zoo or with the man with the yellow hat, but he seems to be happy (:
Where Crocodiles Have Wings
This book was very Dr. Seuss inspired to me. Just wacky, creative, and fun descriptions and scenarios. It was fun to read to my friend’s son who just found the whole book ridiculously funny. A crocodile with wings?! What could be more hysterical?
If You Give a Dog a Donut
Obviously, these books are tons of fun for kids and adults both. Cute animals, desserts, crafts, and silly activities keep us all turning the page wondering what is going to happen next.
This book is a good reminder that our families may be too noisy, or too quiet, or too annoying, or too boring, but they are still our families and we would be lost without them.
Can You Make a Scary Face?
This is a perfect book for young children like Carter’s age, three to five years old, because it’s interactive!
