The girls are driving me INSANE today, so here's a quick update with some of our very favorite books--in case anyone wants to plan a Christmas wish list or maybe hit up the library :-)
This one has been a favorite for over a year, but I'd say in the last couple months Brielle has become obsessed lol. She squeals and screams when we get to the part that say "fum, foe, fie, fee, monsters don't eat broccoli!" :-) Raya loves finding the funny little pictures, like the monster licking the stop sign, or trying to eat a rocket out of the sky with a fork. Really cute book--and it rhymes, which I always like!
Lee's mom always gets the girls holiday themed books, which is a fun surprise for them. When Raya went to visit this weekend Grandma H. gave her a Dora Halloween book, and also this Little People one---the girls LOVES these flap books. And there are so many flaps--plenty to look at! Awhilie back Grandma H. gave them a Noah's Ark flap book just like this, and it's been a favorite ever since. I'd suggest any of these Little People flap books--they are really sturdy too and have held up well to my girls. (and they are pretty big too!)
This board book is another OBSESSION! We checked it out from the library when Raya was little and she loved it. So then I bought it for Brielle in her Easter basket and we read it probably 20 times a day until I hide it because I simply can't take it anymore hehe. There are hardly any words---it's one of those books that you ad-lib a lot and the pictures are great. Brielle loves saying "night night!" to each animal and then she SCREAMS when the lady wakes up and sees the animals in her bad lol. Highly recommend this one!
Both girls love Dora, but they have multiple box sets for all kinds of characters too--- Caillou and Fancy Nancy are also favorites here. These box sets are a great bargain compared to buying them individually, and the girls love carrying the little cases around with the handle. Brielle is now really good about not ripping pages too, so that's nice! We are pretty much moving away from buying board books in the future, other than the lift the flaps and such.
Pinkalicious is also a big favorite! Not only are these books super girlie and fun, but this "original" is about cupcakes! haha. There are also lots of other off shoot pinkalicious adventures that the girls like, and also spinoffs like Silverlicious and Purplelicious, etc. (probably butchering the spellings there ;-)
Along the lines of cupcakes, Raya loves this one too (it's above Brielle comprehension, but she still likes to pretend to eat the cupcakes haha). This one is pretty entertaining for the adult reading as well, which is always nice.
We will just share one more today---we love all the Llama Llama books, but this one is the girls' favorite. The love it when he throws the big tantrum in the grocery store expecially haha.
So, what are *your* favorite kids books? Please share! :-)
