I LOVE children's books. It's such a joy to read to my sweet grandchildren. We have a beautiful library in town. So, from our weekly trip, here's a few treasures we found this time.
Make Way for Ducklings by Robert McCloskey is a classic story. Robert McCloskey was awarded the 1942 Caldecott Medal for his delightful illustrations of Mr. and Mrs. Mallard and their ducklings. Ages 4+
Owl Moon by Jane Yolen. A beautifully told tale of a girl and her father going “owling” one winter evening. Jane Yolen’s illustrations of the young girl determinedly tromping through the snow are enchanting. Owl Moon will surely encourage other children to appreciate their own encounters with nature. Ages 4+
Skip through the Seasons
Jump into January and dance all throughout the rest of the year. This rhyming, seek-and-find book of months features plenty of seasonal objects on each page for readers to point out. Educational end notes include facts about different calendars, seasons and days of the week.

The Sounds Around Town
Follow a baby throughout the day, listening to all the sounds of life in the city. The colorful spreads are adorned with sound words to try out, and the rhyming text uses repetition for easy learning.
