Last weekend I attended the California Association for the Education of Young Children annual conference in San Jose. My favorite session was Read Aloud Wow: Best New Books and Voices. Everyone that knows me knows I am obsessed with children’s books! I have been collecting for over 15 years and have a great collection. I will be posting some of my favorites under the Book Lists page. There were a few that stood out to me this past weekend that I just had to run home and buy! More to come. The following books can all be purchased through Amazon.com
1. Little Treasures: Endearments from Around the World by Jacqueline K. Ogburn
This is a great multicultural book about what parents call their children in different cultures.
2. One Special Day by Lola M. Shaefer
A wonderful predictable book about a little boy who is compared to diffent animals and then becomes quiet and gentle when he is introduced to his new sibling. Great pictures!
3. Pete the Cat: I Love my White Shoes by Eric Litwin
I can’t believe I didn’t know about Pete the Cat! Fun, positive book about colors. There are a few more in the series as well, I also purchased Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons a math/counting book.
