Enjoying another bedtime story! We have read this range of books so often, both my children know off by heart the last sentence on the first page, as it’s the same for all the books. Repetition is great for children, and it’s an early way of them developing to read. #usbornebooksathome#sazbookshelf#bedtimestories#appletreefarm
Confession: I'm a big fan of story told through art. For real. I LOVE IT! But there are those days when my kids hand me a book with no words and every word I've ever known flies right out of my head. No noun or verb I string together makes any sense and I'm secretly cursing the artist that is putting me through the agony of making up story when I'm tired and all my creative juice has run out. Am I the only one?!?⠀
Well forget all that up there 👆🏻.I'm recommending South by Patrick McDonell because I've never felt anything like that about this book. The story is full of #kindness and #compassion . The pictures are simple enough for a tired mama to easily give to a non-reader without the struggle to understand what is happening. It's a lovely seasonal book for #autumn without falling into the Halloween or Thanksgiving categories.⠀
A little bird wakes from a nap to find all the other birds have flown south. When a friend comes along to help him find the way back to his family, the two friends journey through cities, fields and forests following the sound of their song.
Three little ghosties are trying to see who is the scariest while boasting about their various spooky frights. The silly stories & twist at the end help little ones see there’s nothing to be afraid of & their power to turn the table on otherwise scary figures.
