Kendall’s 5 Favorite Children’s Books – August
Welcome back to Kendall’s Library!
We hope you enjoyed last month’s post, Kendall’s 5 Favorite Children’s Books – July and had a blast reading the books with your kiddos! Kendall has many more books to share so let’s dive into more silly reads.
Cindy Moo by Lori Mortensen and illustrated by Jeff Mack
“Hey Diddle Diddle!” This cutie book is full of silly rhymes about a cow, Cindy Moo, trying to jump over the moon. After hearing the classic nursery rhyme, Cindy Moo is bound and determined to get over that moon! Kendall loves this “sing-read” book, and goes full excited mode every time she hears “CINDY MOO!” It is one of my favorites to read to her, and we both laugh and agree that Cindy Moo is determination goals. We love an inspirational read – even if is in the form of cows jumping over the moon.
Giraffes Can’t Dance by Giles Andreae and illustrated by Guy Parker-Rees
This little story of a Giraffe being brave and dancing despite his two left feet is the best way to show children that you can do it no matter what! With a little encouragement, Giraffe becomes the life of the party! Animals and inspiration.. I’m sensing a theme here, what about you? Kendall loves this book and is always eager to turn the pages for the next part. It is a board book so it is great for your child to easily hold onto and turn the pages by his/herself!
The Cat in the Hat by Dr. Suess
Written in 1957, this classic is still just as popular today! Kendall enjoys reading about Cat in the Hat’s mischievous shenanigans. He’s a silly cat in a silly hat who comes to play with two bored kids and makes quite a mess! This is a winner for Kendall because she’s a sucker for silly rhymes! And no one rhymes like quite Dr. Suess!
Moose Tracks by Karma Wilson and Jack E. Davis
“Who left all the moose tracks?!” Read this book to your children and have them help you figure out who left moose tracks all over the house! Kendall girl loves her animal books, and this one is full of animal friends. She loves to point them out. The illustrations in this book are vibrant and colorful. This book captures Kendall’s attention until the very end! You’ll never guess who left all those moose tracks!
How Loud is a Lion? by Stella Blackstone and Clare Beaton
“How loud is a lion? Shhhh! Listen!” It gets Kendall every time! She laughs every time I say, “Shhhh!” This adorable board book is “illustrated” by different patterns stitched together – very creative. It talks about characteristics of other animals while constantly asking how loud a lion is. Until, “ROARRRRR!” he sneaks up and scares you at the very end! We always have a fun time roaring and laughing at this book! A must-read for the kiddos!
