KidLitPicks Book Club  December theme: Rhyming Reads Chosen by: @petitbookcorner To be featured, tag #kidlitpicks_rhymingreads Mods: @readingisourthing @spiky_penelope

FEATURE 🎄 To spend a day browsing through the bookshelves of @bookbloom’s library, that would be a dream. Check out these wonderful Rhyming Reads… #kidlitpicks_rhymingreads

RHYMING READS is our December theme, chosen and introduced by Teri @petitbookcorner.
.

I spy with my little eye something that rhymes with BOOK. How many words can you come up with? LOOK, CHOOK, COOK, HOOK, TOOK...
.

@kidlitpicks is on the hunt for the best rhyming reads to share with our kiddos! We all know that reading WITH our children is one of the greatest gifts we can give them, as it opens up their world to so many different ideas and perspective, BUT did you know reading rhyming books is one of the best ways to help your child develop phonological awareness and rhythmic language?
.

The more rhyming books we read with our children the better they become at recognising, identifying, matching and eventually substituting, manipulating and producing rhymes themselves. This assists them greatly with language development and on the road of learning to read. Plus rhyming reads are just so much fun and an excellent way to get the whole family engaged in read aloud moments that everyone will enjoy!

Visual Wonders - our theme for November, chosen and introduced by @wordsandillustrations
.

Sometimes a picture book story is elevated to the next level by it’s outstanding illustrations. Electrifying art that ‘illuminates’ the written narrative with gusto. Those picture books that you are happy to take your time with, to soak up the visual spectacle and enjoy. As an introduction to art and the power of imagination, these picture books do more than just please the eye. They charge the mind with new creative ideas and show young readers just how wondrous the world can be.

FEATURE ✨ “One of our favorite middle grade books this year!!!” —@averyandaugustine.
.

Twelve-year-old Lou Bulosan-Nelson has a dream — to build a house of her own. Not just any house — a 100-square-foot tiny house. A “just right” space to get away to when she’s in need of some peace and quiet. Lou’s hopeful plans are to build her house on some land inherited from her dad. It’s not long, though, before she and her carefully-drafted blueprints run into a couple of obstacles. It’s time to “seize the day” (one of Lou’s favorite mottos) and make things happen!
.

This book means so much to me. It means so much to welcome another Filipino American voice to #kidlit, and a character whose experiences are similar to my own — the language, culture, hospitality, community and loud, boisterous togetherness — it’s all there. Mae Respicio’s writing is fresh and funny with beautiful moments that will resonate with all readers about family, friends, and the intangible things that make a house a home. I hope you’ll welcome this story into your heart as I have and I hope you’ll love getting to know creative, resourceful, observant and lovable Lou.
