Story Time

Well, this isn't more Christmas break pictures but I have been wanting to do this post for a few days so what the heck.  There are a lot of doosies out there when it comes to children's books from the library, if  you know what I mean, but when you find a really good one it is such a joy so here is a list of our favorites for you to check out at your next visit to the library:

What Color Is Your Underwear?  This one is funny.

The Wizard, the Fairy, and the Magic Chicken  This one is also funny, good story.

The Magical Life of Mr. Renny  This one has wonderful pictures and a very fun story.  We just checked it out last week and the girls have wanted to read it everyday more than once. 

Go Away, Big Green Monster!  This one my daughters loved and quoted for a while but it has some issues with color going on in it. 

Smile  Very clever book, a bit sassy.  Because of this book, instead of getting frustrated or mad when the kids won't stop whining and such, we just start looking for their smile and it works every time. 

One  Awesome book!

Foggy Foggy Forest  Awesome book.  My favorite picture book so far.  Not so much a story as a picture book. 

The Gruffalo  Probably our favorite story yet so far.  I love this story so much.  There is a short movie that is so well done.

The Gruffalo's Child  This is the sequel and it is cute too, as is the movie.  If you have young kids, you should have these two books and movies.  There is also lots of other Gruffalo stuff out there, coloring books, stuffed characters, etc.  Just check out Amazon.com. 

When we come across more we really like I will share them too!
