Reading with Little C: Baby Books

8 01 2015

Little C made his appearance at the end of February. As the second child he probably doesn’t get as much one-on-one book sharing time as his older brother did as a baby. He’s usually with us when I read to Little L at night, so he’s experiencing the language and artwork in his own way though. When we do get the chance to read to him on his own, there are some titles that he seems to especially enjoy (in addition to many of the same books we read to Little L as a baby – see here and here).

These mostly black-and-white board books by Peter Linenthal:

look animals

Look at the Animals! by Peter Linenthal; illustrated by the author

 

look look

These board books from Caroline Jayne Church based on the classic songs:

twinkle twinkle

Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star adapted and illustrated by Caroline Jayne Church

you sunshine

You Are My Sunshine by Jimmie Davis and Charles Mitchell; adapted and illustrated by Caroline Jayne Church

And we received this great title as a gift, and it’s been one of Little C’s favorites from the beginning:

i kissed baby

I Kissed the Baby by Mary Murphy; illustrated by the author

I’m looking forward to see what Little C chooses as he gets older and what his individual tastes will be in contrast to his brother’s favorite titles.
