HAZEL’S FAVORITE BOOKS PART 2

I’ve made reading books a part of our routine since the day Hazel was born (my parents gave us the book On the Night You Were Born the day she was born and we read it to her in the hospital). Hazel has really grown to love books. I read books to her throughout the day and I read to her as part of our bedtime routine. Hazel also loves to knock all the books off her bookshelf and “read” books to herself. I thought it’d be fun to share the books she gets the most excited to read 🙂

The Monster at the End of This Book by Jon Stone: I read this book in my best Grover voice and Hazel thinks it’s hilarious. She also loves to turn pages and has fun hearing Grover’s reaction as she turns each page.

Barnyard Dance by Sandra Boynton: Hazel loves animals and gets excited whenever she sees a picture of one (and she gets even more excited when she sees animals in real life). It’s also fun to act out this book with her…she bows to cow and everything. Haha!

Pajama Time by Sandra Boynton: All Sandra Boynton books have a tune to them as you read them, so you end up singing the book instead of just reading it. Hazel bobs her head along to the Pajama Time song as I read/sing it.

Baby Touch and Feel Animals by DK: This book doesn’t have a story to it…it just has pictures of animals and you can touch their fur, scales, etc. This is her favorite book to “read” to herself. She pretty much just stays on the page with the dog and gives it kisses.When I read it to her, I make all the animal sounds and we talk about the animals.

Quack! Quack! by Roger Priddy: This is another touch and feel book but it has more words than the other.

Where is Baby’s Belly Button? by Karen Katz: I read this book five times in a row today because Hazel kept handing it to me and signing “more”. It’s a great book for learning body parts and has flaps that you lift up to find baby’s eyes, belly button, etc. When we read it, we not only find the baby in the books body parts, but we also find Hazel’s and Mommy’s too.

What are some of your favorite children’s books? I’m also looking for new books to buy 🙂

XO, Kacie
