B & K's Reading Daze

I have two girls who love to read as much as I do.  Granted they are 5 and 3, so reading isn't exactly what they do.  I'm so excited that this love of mine seems to be passing on to them.  So B & K's Reading Daze highlights some of the books they have enjoyed over the past month.  These books are usually books we find at the library, although occasionally I will showcase some favorites that we own or whatever else they really enjoy.

It seems like we haven't got as much reading time lately.  We've been a busy family which usually means later bedtimes and no time for a story.  Plus, my youngest had the library taken away from her for a little while.  She wasn't treating her borrowed books like she should.  But, we always have favorites and here are a couple of them.

K's Books (5):

The Pout-Pout Fish 
Title: The Pout-Pout Fish
Author: Deborah Diessen
 Illustrator: Dan Hanna

 Swim along with the pout-pout fish as he discovers that being glum and spreading “dreary wearies” isn’t really his destiny. Bright ocean colors and playful rhyme come together in this fun fish story that’s sure to turn even the poutiest of frowns upside down.

K LOVES this book.  It's cute and colorful.  We've read it enough times that she has it memorized.  I love the ending.

B's Books (3):

Noah and the Ark (Read with Me (Make Believe Ideas))Title: Noah and the Ark
Authors: Claire and Nick Page

I would think this one is obvious what it's about.  B particualrly likes stories about Noah and the Ark.  I think it's the animals.  She really enjoys this one.  The entire thing rhymes and has some hilarious  things that Noah says to God.  It also includes an A to Z list of animals that were brought on the boat (not all of course, just an animal starting with each letter).  So if you like bible tales for younger children, we really recommend this one!
