Kid Konnection: Mouse's Favorite Downstairs Books (Part 2)

Mouse's interest in books has grown over the past few months, and it is fun to see which books she is most drawn to. Here I highlight another couple of books which have gained her affection, evidenced by the number of times she brings me the book to read to her.

One of my aunts is a strong believer in giving books as gifts to children. She'll get no argument from me! For Easter, she and my uncle gave Mouse a set of animal books, one called Kitty Kitty and the other Farm Friends. Both are board books that Mouse has grown quite attached to. Farm Friends teaches children the various sounds that farm animals make. Mouse loves it when I make the donkey sound--probably because I get a little too into it. The Kitty Kitty book discusses a kitty's behavior, using real life pictures of cats. I try to engage Mouse as we read, asking her if her cats do the same as the cats on the pages.  Both books are more instructional than entertaining story wise, but they are perfect reading for a toddler learning about the sights and sounds around her.

    1. Stacy - I wish the books has listed authors on them. It makes it hard to identify. I will see if I can insert a photo of the books when I get a chance.

  4. Just as long as they have cute pictures... my kids didn't care if they were fun or educational.
