Great children's book recommendations?


Posted by Sarah_H

Have you bought any new children's books recently that you'd recommend for kids aged around 4 or 5 years old? I'll start us off by telling you about "The Pristine Pig." My daughter loves this book with it's very funny story and great illustrations. It's one of those books she doesn't get tired of me reading to her.

It's all about a pig that's trying to stay clean and the adventures he has while trying to keep out of the way of his siblings who think he should be dirty like pigs are known for. I like it's underlying message about excepting each other for who we are and not expecting everyone to be like us, or who we want them to be. It's one of the Pencil Play Pals books. Anyone read any of the others available?

Oh, I got it at pencilplaypals.com which also has a fun kid's club by the way.

Looking forward to hearing what books you'd recommend.

My kids like to explore comic books and they share it with their friends too. For a while I started sharing with them disease explaining comic books and so far, they are working. I found them on http://www.Kidzcomics.com, an online publisher whose motive is to educate children with quick learning approach. They provide very kidsfriendly comic books which kids really love to take interest.

I'd recommend a new poetry book, Suzie Bitner Was Afraid of the Drain.  My kids love the rhymes (and the illustrations) and it's a book they won't outgrow anytime soon. (I think it will appeal to ages 4 to 12.)  It has a very positive tone, which I really appreciate.  Some of the poems are funny; others are whimsical; they're all a lot of fun.  And they're all about things kids can relate to.  Bonus for Mom: they're great for those "only have a few minutes to read tonight" times.  There are excerpts on the author's website (www.suziebitner.com) if you want to take a peek. Definitely worth checking out!
