Book Number 80 – Silly Sally by Audrey Wood

Book Jacket for: Silly SallyThis story will have you wanting to chant and sing.  A simple story full of rhyme and silliness.

Little N is fourteen and a half months.  Reading to him has been a struggle.  Yesterday, he finally acted remotely interested for awhile.  We have been reading some books over and over – I try not to post the repetitions here.  I will continue to try and not give up.

Book Number 77 – Is Anyone Home? by Ron Maris

Book Jacket for: Is anyone home?While reading this story, I “knocked” each time the girl approached a door/gate, etc.  This way, Little N stayed a bit more focused on the story.  It is nearly impossible to read to him these days unless he is strapped in his high chair or unless he is drinking his bedtime bottle.  Oh well.  At any rate, it is fun to guess who is behind the door, and so nice to see grandma and grandpa!

Book Number 71 – Long Train by Sam Williams

Book Jacket for: Long train : 101 cars on the trackVery cool book – 101 trains – each one with a flap to open and see what the car is carrying.  Definitely too much for Little N at this stage, but I will be checking this out again when he is a bit older.  There are some rhymes throughout the story, but the whole thing is not in rhyme.  Lots of fodder for vocabulary practice!
