My toddler turns 2 in a few days. She loves to play with peg dolls, so her present from me will be this peg doll version of the title character in NO DAVID!, which is one of her favorite books. I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out, considering I am not usually very good at drawing and I only used Sharpies!

Today's prompt for #raisingreadersjune is family vacations. We're out at a bookstore so I took the opportunity to snap a pic of a book I loved when I was 12: WALK TWO MOONS by Sharon Creech. It's the story of Salamana Tree Hiddle who takes a road trip from Kentucky to Idaho with her grandparents to find out what happened to her mother. On the trip, Sal relates an interesting story about her friend Phoebe Winterbottom, her mother, and an apparent lunatic. WALK TWO MOONS was the 1995 Newbery Medal winner.

My #currentread on my #kindleapp is an ARC of DEATH OVERDUE by Allison Brook, which I received from Crooked Lane Books via @netgalley. I don't usually do ghost books, but I can't resist a library-themed cozy mystery so I gave it a shot anyway, and I'm loving it already! The writing is quick and fun, the main character is totally sympathetic and the ghost's presence so far fits right into the story.

I'm trying to keep up with Miss Muffet as she zips through our easy reader collection. Of these four, I think I like Crosby Bonsall's quirky PIGGLE the best!

I read through a big stack of easy readers while the girls napped today, including all these I Can Read books by Nathaniel Benchley. The Arnold Lobel illustrations were my favorites, but I enjoyed all of these!

Ellery Adams is one of the best cozy mystery writers I have discovered, probably second only to Lilian Jackson Braun. I'm loving the setting and characters in MURDER IN THE MYSTERY SUITE, and I'm zipping right through the story on this hot July fourth afternoon.

My three-year-old and I went to the @moreheadplanetarium today, where she was absolutely mesmerized by the "Carolina Skies" show - especially the Ring Nebula, Ursa Major, and Ursa Minor. We ended the day with a read-aloud of this book, ZOO IN THE SKY by Jacqueline Mitton, illustrated by Christina Balit, which I happened to find at a used bookstore we visited yesterday. Β She enjoyed reviewing the constellations we learned about at the planetarium and studying the star charts on the end papers.

In addition to our usual picture books, I've been reading aloud WINNIE-THE-POOH to the girls at lunch time. I wasn't sure whether either of them would necessarily understand it, but they are completely in love with the characters and even the younger one (almost 2) can retell some of what happens. ("Pooh bear. Bees. Tree.") I'm also really enjoying the story's sense of humor and the flow of the language as I read aloud.Β We only have 3 chapters left, and I think we'll probably move right on to THE HOUSE AT POOH CORNER when we're done.Β πŸ»πŸ·πŸ°πŸ“š #winniethepooh #aamilne #ernestshepard #illustration #kidlit #readaloud #readtome #homeschoolpreschool #preschoolathome #preschoolers #toddlers #kidsbookstagram #bookstagramjr #homeeducation #homeschoolers #amreading #currentlyreading #readathomemom

My toddler (turning 2 later this month) just brought me A CHILD'S CALENDAR by John Updike and Trina Schart Hyman and asked me to read it. She lost interest when we got to May, but I flipped ahead to September. I love the line "The air is full / of smells to feel" and the illustration of a farmer's market that perfectly evokes the feeling of early Fall.

We had some fun with apples in our homeschool today. 🍎🍏🍎 First, Miss Muffet read FROM SHOOT TO APPLE by Stacy Taus-Bolstad (@lernerbooks) via @hoopladigital. Then we cut open an apple to see its star and made some red and green apple prints. ⭐ Finally, we took out the globe and read HOW TO MAKE AN APPLE PIE AND SEE THE WORLD by Marjorie Priceman, locating each country on the globe as it was mentioned. 🌏

We generally don't buy paperbacks if we can get hardcovers, but I still love to look at old paperback covers. I spotted these gems on this evening's visit to our local friends of the library bookstore.

Little Bo Peep (23 mos) is freaking out about this illustration from LITTLE BITTY FRIENDS by Elizabeth McPike and Patrice Barton. She keeps trying to see the unshown side of his face and saying, "Only one eye? Where other eye? Only one. Can't see another eye." 🀣

Having worked in the public library, I can promise that it is not a good place to find potential tenants as suggested by Katie and Sue in this passage from DEPEND ON KATIE JOHN by Mary Calhoun (1961). πŸ˜„

Here's one of the ways we learned about today's solar eclipse: from THE GOLDEN BOOK OF SCIENCE (1963)! Though it's obviously not up-to-date, this is still a useful resource for learning about certain scientific concepts that haven't changed much in 50 years. Little Miss Muffet enjoys the illustrations and the language is simple enough for her to understand but detailed enough to answer her many many questions about why the world is the way it is. β˜€πŸŒ™ #goldenbookofscience #vintagekidlit #solareclipse #thesun #solareclipse2017 #greatamericaneclipse #science #preschoolscience #preschoolathome #homeschoolpreschool #kidlit #childrensbooks #nonfiction #oldschoolkidlit #readaloud #readtome #readathomemom

I am #currentlyreading THE COTTAGE AT BANTRY BAY by Hilda van Stockum. Set in Ireland, it is a family story about Father and Mother O'Sullivan and their four children: Michael, Brigid, Liam, and Francie. As the books of Kate Seredy do with Hungarian folklore and history, the story incorporates lots of Irish culture, language, and history into episodes from the characters' daily lives. Shown in this illustration (which was done by the author) is Paddy the Piper, a spirited, larger-than-life friend of the O'Sullivans who, despite suffering great personal tragedy in the loss of his brothers and father to war brings great joy to others with his music and sense of humor. ☘☘☘ #hildavanstockum #thecottageatbantrybay #osullivanfamily #paddythepiper #kidlit #illustration #middlegrade #oldschookidlit #vintagebooks #vintagekidsbooks #kidsbookstagram #bookstagram #bookstagramjr #amreading #irish #ireland #amreading #bookish #booksbooksbooks #booknerd #readathomemom

This week, Miss Muffet has been reading TALES OF OLIVER PIG aloud to me after lunch. I loved these books as a kid, when I sympathized most with oldest sibling Oliver. Now, though, I find myself laughing in recognition at the behavior of toddler Amanda (who has much in common with my own Little Bo Peep) and feeling Mother Pig's pain when her young pigs don't follow her instructions. Arnold Lobel's sweet and cozy illustrations are the perfect match for the warmth and humor of Jean Van Leeuwen's text, and the subject matter is just perfect for an almost-four-year-old beginning reader. πŸ·πŸ–πŸ½ #oliverpig #talesofoliverpig #jeanvanleeuwen #arnoldlobel #easyreader #illustration #kidlit #beginningreaders #learntoread #readtome #newreader #preschoolathome #homeschoolpreschool #childhoodmemories #favoritebooks #kidsbookstagram #childrensbooks #bookstagram #bookstagramjr #readathomemom

After watching the Really Rosie animated special, I was finally able to borrow THE SIGN ON ROSIE'S DOOR from Openlibrary.org to share with Miss Muffet. We both loved the short chapters about the make-believe games Rosie plays with her friends, and Sendak's illustrations are perfectly charming as always.

Yesterday we put together our last Busy Builders set from @silverdolphinbooks. This one is the construction site, which includes a bulldozer, digger, and dump truck. My review of all three sets is coming to the blog very soon!

My husband read at age 3, and I read at age 4, so I guess we thought Miss Muffet might be an early reader, but it's still so surprising to me that she is already reading I Can Read books at age 3.5. With lots of support from us, she has just spent a couple of weeks slowly reading through LET'S GET TURTLES by Millicent Selsam and Arnold Lobel. Swipe to see the sweet little turtles we made to celebrate finishing the whole book! 🐒🐒🐒 #kidlit #easyreaders #learntoread #literacy #raisingreaders #kidlitcrafts #craftproject #letsgetturtles #icanread #science #homeschoolpreschool #preschoolathome #millicentselsam #arnoldlobel #turtlecraft #eggcartoncrafts #vintagekidlit #oldschoolkidlit #preschoolscience #preschoolart #readathomemom

I have to admit to being a little bit frightened of Really Rosie when I was a kid, but I have always loved the music, which is composed and performed by Carole King. I had Miss Muffet watch the animated show on YouTube earlier this week, and she's been looking at this book (which contains all the dialogue and music, as well as stills from the film) Β on and off ever since.
