Welcome to a new occasional series! Sort of! I used to talk about the books Moira really loved, or that I really loved reading to her on a semi regular basis. But as she got older I stopped. Davis has recently discovered a love of picking out which books we should read, and some clear favorites have been uncovered. Here they are!
Mama, Where Are you? by Diane Muldrow: I bought this book when Moira was about 2, because I thought it was sweet. She loved it for awhile, but Davis REALLY likes it. Sometimes we read it 5 or more times in a row, with him going to the shelf to select another book, and coming back with this one every time. Each page has a baby animal on a flap asking the same question, then you lift the flap to discover that Mama is right there, teaching a lesson, or caring for the baby.
But Not the Hippopotamus by Sandra Boynton: The Hippopotamus does not want to do anything until pressured by it's friends. Hilarious!
Slide 'n Seek Shapes by Chuck Murphy: I've mentioned these books before in a Moira Recommends. It's an interesting concept and a well executed way to have parts of a board book's pages slide out, but I doubt they could make it strong enough for a toddler to not rip it all apart. The pictures are cute, but I think he could have tried harder to find something shaped like a triangle.
