David’s Library Picks: A Squirrel, A Pony, and Some Fish

Here are some of David’s favorites from the week:

ponybrushesteeth  Pony Brushes His Teeth by Michael Dahl. The other night David cried because he wanted to read this book. I guess that is a sign of a good book.  And, it is completely perfect for us since we are working at how to brush teeth (besides just sucking the toothpaste off the brush.)  Dahl describes Pony’s teeth-brushing routine, as Pony does everything just like his dad.


The Busy Little Squirrel by Nancy Tafuri. tafuri squirrelThis book is PERFECT for this time of year. Squirrel can’t play with his friends because he is busy collecting food for winter: acorns, seeds, corn, etc. David loves finding the spiders and caterpillars on most of the pages. This is totally toddler-appropriate and I love not having to paraphrase!




Hooray for Fish by Lucy Cousins. This book is full of fun pictures and descriptive language. Perhaps David also loved it because we often visit a local fish/pet store for fun (or to kill time). Maybe it is time for a pet fish?
