Some Winners

A couple real winners from the Wednesday Library trip this time a few oh-so-so and blah ones too.

The winners:

Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! by Mo Willems - Oh we love this! It is fun, funny and John is really starting to get into it as much as we are.

Does a Cow Say BOO? by Judy Hindley - So very cute, and John loves it, even holds his hands over his eyes in anticipation of the end.

Ginger Finds a Home by Charlotte Voake - Well okay, but really by the end we don't care.

Aardvarks Disembark! by Ann Jonas - Ugh, they could have stayed on the ark.

Alphabet City by Stephen T Johnson - Nice city type art, alphabet book maybe not.

Alphabet ABC by Marianna Mayer & Gerald McDermott - Cute but ripped up by some other kid, hmmmm, somehow we should really try to treat library books better.

I Unpacked My Grandmother's Trunk by Susan Ramsay Hoguet - Packed or unpacked by the end we don't care.

Harold and the Purple Crayon by Crockett Johnson - This one is still too old for John, so we're keeping it on his needs to read list because we both think that he is going to love it!!!

And where did I get the idea to get all these books from the library, well all but the winners were recommendations from the New York Times Favorite Children's Book or something like that, well that book is certainly going back to the library and why in the world did I ever think that the New York Times had a clue what a good children's book would look like. The winners this time, well the Pigeon book was a recommendation by Amy, John's speech therapist, and the Boo book we just happened upon in the library.

So anyone that wants to leave comment, we would love to hear what your favorite children's books are for kids John's age, or even older and we'll put them on our someday list.
