"Books to the ceiling,
Books to the sky,
My pile of books is a mile high.
How I love them! How I need them!
I'll have a long beard by the time I read them."
- Arnold Lobel

What My Child Is Reading :: Week of 6 September 2010



I came across this wonderful meme, "What My Child Is Reading," over at my newest blogging discovery, Mouse Grows, Mouse Learns! Take a minute to peek inside this wonderful blog ... I know that I am super-thrilled to have found it!

Fall is most definitely in the "literature" air here in our little corner of the world! This is my favorite, favorite time of year, especially when sharing children's literature with my little ones. 

We can be found reading all manner of books about apples, school, fall, leaves, and Halloween!


Here are our latest picks:


Who Will Haunt My House on Halloween?

Who Will Haunt My House on Halloween?
Written by Jerry Pallotta
Illustrated by David Biedrzycki

Publisher's Summary:  It's Halloween night.  While a mother is upstairs getting her daughter's costume ready, lost of trick-or-treaters stop by the house - from werewolves, ghosts, and zombies to witches, bats, dinosaurs, and more! But are they really ... real?


Let It Fall

Let It Fall
Written and Illustrated by Maryann Cocca-Leffler

Publisher's Summary:  Mounds of color, raked up high - jump right in and watch the sky.


One Smart Cookie: Bite-Size Lessons for the School Years and Beyond

One Smart Cookie:  Bite-Size Lessons for the School Years and Beyond
Written by Amy Krouse Rosenthal
Illustrated by Jane Dyer and Brooke Dyer

Publisher's Summary:  One Smart Cookie offers a fresh batch of words that encompasses everything you might say to a child, whether it's the first day of preschool or the last day of high school.  Cookie-centric definitions range from wanting to know everything about cookies (curious) to thinking carefully about what kind of cookies to make for your friend (ponder).  This book mixes Amy Krouse Rosenthal's morsels of wisdom with the delicious illustrations of mother-daughter duo Jane Dyer and Brooke Dyer.  This is one vocabulary list that will resonate well beyond the school years.

What have your children been reading lately??? I would love to know!!!

Thank you so much for sweet words of encouragement about my blog and joining WMCIR. All your choices look awesome. I think the first one might be a little intense for my Halloween-averse daughter, but I am putting the rest on my library list.
