Three

Standard

Ohhh… the countdown is getting closer to an end now.  I don’t know about you but I know that I’m getting really ever so slightly excited.  Okay, seriously excited but I know it will drive everyone nuts so I’m trying to contain myself.  How am I doing so far?  *lol*

Today it’s my favourite three kids books.  They’re books I’ve read over and over and over again and then, just for something different, I’ve read them again.  So, here we go!

1.  The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle.  Such a simple story and gorgeous pictures.  I love how it teaches kids the days of the week, good food choices versus not so good food choices, the best thing to do when you’ve overeaten and that everyone has the capacity for change.  I’ve always loved TVHC and may have gone a little bit overboard when Master2 came along as Target had brought out a range of TVHC merchandise.  If it had the caterpillar on it then I probably bought it.

2.  Where is the Green Sheep?  Such a gorgeous book by Mem Fox and Judy Horacek with a great rhythm to it as it teaches about opposites and the value of perseverance… they do find that green sheep in the end, after all!  I’m yet to meet a toddler that doesn’t enjoy this book.

3.  Green Eggs and Ham by the fabulous Dr Seuss.  Another great book with rhythm that induces laughter by about the third page.  I have thought about dying some eggs green and serving them with ham but just can’t bring myself to do it.  I’d need a Sam-I-Am for that, I think.

Three days to go.
