The assignment I gave the kids was to go and choose their favorite picture book off of our shelves. The book had to be one that they really, really enjoyed and one which they would encourage other people to read. Beyond that, I gave no directions and waited to see what they would bring to me. Here were their choices:
Bookworm1 (age 9)
Bookworm1 picked out Little Pea.
It is about a little pea who liked rolling down hills and he liked it when Mama Pea told him stories about herself before bedtime. He liked it when Papa Pea would come home from work and fling little Pea up into the air. But there was one thing that Little Pea did not like. He did not like Candy. Every day for dinner he had to eat candy. He hated all of it. His parents told him that if he would eat all of his candy then he could have dessert . . . spinach!
Everyone should read this book because it is very funny and because I think it is cute.
The following picture was found on Jokeroo. We think it's adorably cute and funny:
Bookworm2 (age 6)
Bookworm2 picked out Can I Play Too?
A little snake comes up to Elephant and Piggie and asks if he can play catch. He cannot play catch because he is a snake. He tries to catch the ball but it just bonks on his head. Then Elephant says, "Let's have more balls!" And Piggie yells out, "More balls!" The snake says, "Oh boy" and got all bonked up.
I think everyone should read this book because it is very funny.
Bookworm3 (age 4)
Bookworm3 picked out A Big Guy Took My Ball!.
The big guy in this book is very big. He took Piggie's ball. Piggie cried. Elephant decides he's going to take the ball from the big guy. Elephant finds out that the big guy is very big.
People should read this book because its very funny. I like it because they end up playing Whale Ball.
Bookworm4 (age 3)
Bookworm4 picked out Richard Scarry's Busy, Busy Town.
He can't explain why. He points to the hippopotamus when asked. Mostly he likes having the family's attention in talking about a book that he is holding in his hand.
He is enjoying sitting and looking at it.
When looking this title up online we discovered that there is a Richard Scarry's Busy, Busy Town (Korea Edition) which we are currently now drooling over. When we go to Korea next, we're going to have to snatch that up!!
