Here are a few of the books I’ve collected recently. I place them on the coffee table in my office for others to view when they visit.
I picked up The History of Counting on a recent visit to Liberty, NC. I love this book for older kids! Look at the rich detail the author shares about body counting on one of the many informative pages inside the book.
Also, from one of my favorite children’s book authors, Melanie Watt, you’ll find several of the Scaredy Squirrel books in her series: Scaredy Squirrel: Scaredy Squirrel Makes a Friend; Scaredy Squirrel at the Beach; Scaredy Squirrel at Night. I’ve just ordered the Scaredy Squirrel plush puppet from amazon.com, too! I love this character!
I also am collecting her Chester books: Chester; Chester’s Back!; Chester’s Masterpiece. And of course, I just got her Have I Got a Book for You, a great book for teaching about persuasion.
What are some of your favorite new children’s books?
