Bambini Bookshelf - August 2014
This is the start of our new book series mentioned in this post. Every month we will be sharing some books that are new to us that we love. They are the current favorites on our shelf. Adored and repeatedly read by one or both of our twins.
This is the Firefighter by Laura Godwin
It is hard to find a firefighter book that my son doesn't love, but this is exceptional. It has lovely rhythmic, rhyming language that is short, but descriptive. It follows a firefighter as he prepares for a call and helps his team save an apartment and its residents. Both of my children adore this book. 1+
Pippa at the Parade by Karen Roosa
I wish we had found this book before the fourth of July, but it is a fun book regardless of when you read it. A family takes in a parade which the author describes with enthusiasm. Toes tap, hands clap, the band comes "marching, strutting along, stepping lively to the jazzy song." The parade describes the most popular delights, along with tasty treats and ending in a fireworks explosion. 2+
Ten Tiny Babies by Karen Katz
My daughter loves all things baby and all books by Karen Katz (author of Where is Baby's Belly Button among others). This counting book counts babies 1 - 10 as they parade through play time, bath, and prepare for bed. It is filled with Katz's typical colorful illustrations, bouncy language, and diverse babies of all types. It is a great book to read before bed, which I can attest to after a week straight of bedtime readings. 1+
Red Car, Red Bus by Susan Steggall
If you have a transportation fan, Steggall has a collection of wonderful books. Rattle and Rap and Busy Boats are two of our favorites. This one is a delightful addition. It is a simple format. The book begins with a Red Bus. Trucks, cars, and vans of all different color and size are added one by one to the page as the bus flows through the street and back to the edge of town. This is a great book for identifying types of vehicle, labeling colors, and counting. 2+
