What are your favorite NEW storytime books?

May has arrived and my thoughts turn to....NEW STORYTIME BOOKS! I'm fortunate enough that in May I get to give each of the children in the preschools I visit a new book to keep (thanks to our library foundation) but that leaves me less time for storytime. So I generally go themeless, and plan simply to share some great NEW books with the kids. Here are some of the new ones I've found and am loving:

  • Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons by Eric Litwin. Of course. Almost, almost as good as the first. And I only say almost because nothing beats the joy of discovering Pete for the first time.
  • Stuck by Oliver Jeffers. Not super new (it came out last fall) but this is the first time I've shared it with kids. Wacky and fun.
  • The Duckling Gets a Cookie!? by Mo Willems. Another no-brainer. Plenty of opportunites to be melodramatic,
  • Oh no, George! by Chris Haughton. George the dog says he'll be good. Then he HOPES he'll be good. But he fails. I love how the ending of this story is left open, leading to good discussion on how George will handle is last test.

What are some of YOUR new favorites? Please share in the comments or on our facebook page! We all need new ideas!

Mother's Day and Favorite Books

 

7 day countdown to Mother's Day! Here's the perfect gift idea for mothers-to-be, grandmothers-to-be, mothers, grandmothers, and all the special caring women in your children's lives who read aloud to them. Give them a copy of "Help Me Get Ready To Read: The Practical Guide For Reading Aloud To Children During Their First Five Years" by Susan Marx and Barbara Kasok and one of our favorite "mother" books.
Some of these books are "Piglet and Mama" by Margaret Wild, "Have You Seen My Duckling?" by Nancy Tafuri, "Owl Babies" by Martin Waddell, and "A Chair for My Mother" by Vera B. Williams.
