David’s Library Bag: Trains, Flowers, and Denise Fleming

I’m having a lot more fun reading to David now that he can sit through more picture books. I don’t know who has more fun picking out books at the library. . .

Here are last week’s picks:

trains-goTrains Go by Steve Light. David picked this one – we always manage to find our library’s new board books. We both enjoyed this one, although some of the train sounds turned into tongue twisters for me. I want to try out some of Light’s other works.


Planting a Rainbow – Lois Ehlert. Ehlert is plantingarainbowturning into a favorite author of mine – she has beautiful illustrations and captivating story lines for toddlers. David loved this book because he remembers helping me plant flower seeds. Now he wants to plant some bulbs (me too!). Although, I think I would like to try forcing some for indoors this year (and because we keep looking at properties and may or may not be living here in the spring!)

time-to-sleepTime to Sleep – by Denise Fleming. Fleming has created so many great books! We’ve read Lunch and Sleepy, Oh So Sleepy already. I think I have several of her other works from my preschool-teaching days.  This book is actually about winter coming, and not going to sleep, as I had previously thought.
