January is finally over. Longest month ever. We filled the long, gray days of January with some lovely books, but we are all excited for February! Preschool Bookworm turns 5 next week, a week before Valentine’s Day. I’m preparing a post of favorite 4 year old reads, thanks to the book log we’ve kept this year! Thanks for reading along.
The Trouble with Chickens by Doreen Cronin. Mama Bookworm didn’t care for this one, but despite my (daily) questioning, Preschool Bookworm wouldn’t let me abandon it. I prefer Doreen Cronin’s picture books. 🙂
The Littles and the Big Storm by John Peterson. I remember reading this series when I was a kid! This was a good fit for PB- exciting plot, a few illustrations, about 80 pages long.
Magic Tree House Survival Guide. A Christmas gift for PB. He loved it! And yes, it comes with a compass.
Dogs in the Dead of Night (Magic Tree House series) It couldn’t be a complete month without reading one of these.
Betsy-Tacy by Maud Hart Lovelace. I adored this and wish I had read it when I was little. (Copyright 1940. Love that!) Such endearing, sweet vignettes of two best friends enjoying timeless childhood experiences fueled by their imaginations and strengthened by their friendship. I’m certain we will read more from this series in the coming year. PB loved it, too. 😉
Homer Price by Robert McCloskey. We all laughed our way through the first story, including Daddy Bookworm. From there, Preschool Bookworm insisted on listening to it during his quiet time, so I was deprived the experience of finishing it (to date)!
The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (repeat listen!) by L. Frank Baum. We listened to this during the summer, but in preparation to see a production of the story, we re-listened 🙂 Worth hearing again and again. Anne Hathaway does a lovely job narrating.
