Good Reads for Kids
Good reads for kids and kids at heart!
Mr. Putter and Tabby Take the Train by Cynthia Rylant - All the Mr. Putter and Tabby books are delightfully quirky, but this one is particularly fun as Mr. Putter tries to sneak his feline friend onto the train. These are some of our favorite early readers because the stories are so fun for both adults and children.
Winter Lullaby by Barbara Seuling - The illustrations in this book are what first drew me in but the text is also beautifully written and informative. Each page focuses on a different animal and where it goes to escape the cold of winter. The book begins in the fall and progresses through to a snowy winter day on the last page.
A Long Way Away by Frank Viva - This picture book follows the journey of a little alien as he travels from outer space, through the solar system, past the moon, and right into Earth's ocean. The simple text is enhanced by the lovely, retro illustrations and children can trace the alien's journey by following a continuous yellow path all through the book. Great picture book for almost any age!
