* Every Tuesday we introduce you to a favorite book from our secret book room.
A special thank you to our friend and teacher Beth Lawton for sharing these super books with us!
Today’s great book: I Took the Moon For a Walk by Carolyn Curtis with illustrations by Allison Jay(2004, Barefoot Books)
Ladybug Girl by David Soman and Jacky Davis (2008, Dial Books for Young Readers)
Time to Read: short and sweet; especially bedtime or anytime
Summary: from the back cover – “Join a small boy on a lyrical, nighttime journey as he and his friend, the Moon, discover the mysterious beauty of the world after dark.”
“Ladybug Girl knows how to make her own fun, right in her own backyard!”
Best Quote from the Book: I Took the Moon for a Walk – “Then as we turned back, the Moon kept me in sight. It followed me home and stayed there all night…”
Ladybug Girl – “Feeling as big as the whole outdoors, Lulu stretches out her arms and flies down the hill with her wings bobbing behind her.”
Our View: Here are two picture books for young children that we highly recommend. From their illustrations to the innovative storylines, each book offers a beautiful view of the world and a place that children will immediately recognize. The style of rhyme and rhythm are easy to read and allow for a peaceful end to the day. Your children will love them!
