On to the books:
- The Glimmering Thing by Christopher Cork is the story of Captain Chris and his first mate, Joshua (a dog), who are on their sailboat when they see a “glimmering thing” in the distance. This glimmering thing has rainbow colors and is high on the top of a mountain island. When they reach the glimmering thing, it turns into all sorts of magical adventures for Captain Chris and Joshua. This is perfect for young readers or even to be read aloud to small children as there are few words per page and beautiful illustrations!
- 10 Sleepy Dinosaurs by Wendy Frood Auger; illustrated by Les Drew: Who doesn’t love cute dinosaurs and counting books for young children? Here’s one you don’t want to miss. I love Les Drews’s illustrations! In this book, you start with one lonely blue dinosaur until he meets a pink one, and then there are two. The pattern continues helping children with colors and counting until you get to TEN very sleepy dinosaurs from a full day of activities. PERFECT for preschool children!
- A is for Alfie by Les Drew: Here’s an alphabet book, starring Alfie the dog and his friend the cat. Not only does this book go through Alfie’s day with the ABCs, but it also rhymes! And again, Les Drews’s illustrations are so super cute–kids will ask for this book again and again. I love ABC books.
