What We’re Reading is a weekly series here at Mama’s Learning Corner. Each Monday, I post a few of the books my children and I will read together during the week. I hope you’ll discover some new-to-you books to share with your family.
I Like Me – Nancy Carlson
This is great reinforcement for my girls in how important it is to like ourselves. The character (pig) in I Like Me shows how she loves herself and the way she acts. It’s a very uplifting story!
“Little ones in need of positive reinforcement will find it here. An exuberant pig proclaims ‘I like me!’ She likes the way she looks, and (all her) activities . . . when she makes a mistake she picks herself up and tries again.”
My Mouth is a Volcano! – Julia Cook
I have a few children who struggle with interrupting, so this book is a timely read for us. My Mouth is a Volcano! is entertaining and uses a gentle approach in taming interrupting.
All of Louis’ thoughts are very important to him. In fact, his thoughts are so important to him that when he has something to say, his words begin to wiggle, and then they do the jiggle, then his tongue pushes all of his important words up against his teeth and he erupts, or interrupts others. His mouth is a volcano!
Frog and Toad All Year – Arnold Lobel
We are big Frog and Toad fans at our house. This new-to-us story has a chapter on each season.
Friends all year.
In winter, spring, summer, and fall, Frog and Toad are always together. Here is a wise and wonderful story for each seasonof the year-and one for Christmas, too.
