Toddler Thursday: 2/24

The Pout-Pout Fish by Deborah Diesen             Farrar, Straus and Giroux, March 2008

As you can tell by the picture to the left, this fish is every bit as pouty as the name suggests.  He “spreads the dreary wearies”.  But through the help of friends, he realizes that maybe he was meant for more.   The pictures are adorable, even when there is pouting involved.  There is also some great rhyme and repetition to help the younger ones start reading along with you.

*Thanks Eileen for reminding me of this one*

On the Night You Were Born by Nancy Tillman                                                        Feiwel & Friends, October 2006

This book is so sweet that it can even melt my cold heart (just kidding, my heart is lukewarm).  This story celebrates the birth of that special little one in your life.  It shows how truly special each child is.  And look at the cover…dancing polar bears.  How could you go wrong?
