From Story Time: The Letter "N"

Read in Book Babies

By Jan Thomas
Beach Lane Books, 2011.  Picture Book.

Three grinning cows are ready to have some fun!  Unfortunately for Chicken, their idea of fun is jumping, dancing, and wiggling to and fro on Chicken's sofa.  Will they finally find a sofa activity that Chicken will be happy about?  You bet, because rowdy cows need naps too!  Thomas' bold illustrations are perfect for the youngest of readers, and this book is an excellent choice for kiddos (and parents) who enjoy a good giggle!

It's a cozy, rainy day in the house, and Granny is napping, but she's not alone.  Into the bed climb the child, the dog, and the cat.  But it's one last guest that changes everything!  Illustrations created from beautiful oil paintings inspire feelings of nostalgia.  This cumulative read aloud provides a great opportunity for comprehension, participation, and recall.  A classic!

What do you love about winter?  This book includes the best of frosty fun:  bundling up in cozy clothes, snowball fights, building snowmen, and don't forget--"thump a-bumping" down slippery slopes on a sled!  Add in a little ice skating and top the day off with a tasty cup of cocoa by the fire, and you've got a perfect winter day.  Rhyming text and colorful cut-paper collage illustrations are great attention-getters for toddlers who view winter with wide-eyed wonder.
