our latest reading list

We finally got to Knuffle Bunny and were cracking up reading it last night. (Thanks for the suggestion Jen!) It takes forever for us to start a new book because B. loves to reread the same stories over and over over. So despite the fact that I ordered a stack of new books back in October we're just getting through them now.
In fact, the only way I can introduce a new book is to offer it up just before we turn out the lights out at bedtime. He'll agree to listen if it buys him an extra ten minutes with the lights on. That and I throw in a bunch of really old (and very basic) favorites, little board books like Moo, Baa, La-La-La. He'll also agree to a new story first thing when he wakes up but I'm usually way too tired to pull it together in the morning.
At 32 months, our (mostly boy-friendly) favorites right now are How I Became a Pirate, Knuffle Bunny, Tikki Tikki Tembo, A Giraffe and a Half, Pout Pout Fish and the Big Big Dark, Harold and the Purple Crayon, Green Eggs and Ham, the Paper Bag Princess and anything involving dinosaurs.
We've also got at least six brand new, unread books sitting on the shelf just waiting to get introduced into our rotation. Maybe by summer...

  1. Yay for Knuffle Bunny. The sequels are equally rewarding, especially Knuffle Bunny Too: A Case of Mistaken Identity.
