What we’ve read so far, week eight (ish)

It’s never too early for early literacy! Even if she’s just lying on her back kicking her legs in the air instead of looking at the pages…

Box of board booksThis gift box is a handy way to store many board books. A new favorite is Sandra Boynton’s Happy Hippo, Angry Duck, which has a funny ending. We also love Oh No, George!, a gift from a friend.

We received I Love You Through and Through and I Love You As Big As the World and Noisy Farm from some cousins. The first two are wonderfully sweet without being sappy, and the third – and this is key – only makes noise if you press a part of the page. We also read The Very Hungry Caterpillar in Spanish. “…pero aun tenia hambre!”

Not pictured (because I forgot): 13 Words by Lemony Snicket with illustrations by Maira Kalman.

We’re getting a lot of books from the library, too, including three Patrick McDonnell books (thanks to Laura, children’s librarian extraordinaire, for the recommendation). I recognized the art right away – he’s the creator of the Mutts comic strip.

Sudo is bored by all this reading and would prefer to watch Doctor Who. The David Tennant episodes, it should go without saying.

  1. I really like “I Want My Hat Back” and “Extra Yarn.” And “Z is for Moose,” obviously.
