David’ s library bag is getting too heavy. I guess that’s a good thing?
Here are two favorites from last week:
First the Egg by Laura Vaccaro Seeger. I can see why this book earned a Caldecott Honor and a Theodor Seuss Geisel Honor. I can also see why many pages are ripped in the library version we checked out. Seeger wrote this book about transformations – seeds into flowers, caterpillars into butterflies – with captivating photos and toddler-appropriate language.
Whose Shoes? by Stephen R. Swinburne. This book was featured as PA’s 2011 One Book Every Child initiative, an early literacy program. David loved guessing whose shoes were featured on each page – farmer, fire-fighter, construction work, etc. Perhaps he will decide to start wearing “big boy shoes” that are not soft-soled?
