School Freebie

Top Ten Tuesday: My favorite books from the '100 Books Every Kid Should Hear Before Kindergarten' list, read with my young grandson this summer.

(My ratings were influenced by Ian, the soon-to-be-kindergartener. He really enjoys humorous books but also likes to read books about nature.)

Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus (Willems)            Napping House (Wood)

Marisol McDonald Doesn't Match (Brown)                 Please, Baby, Please (Lee) --Jamie's
                                                                                        favorite, he's Ian's brother, age 2.              

All 100 of the books were good, no clunkers at all. These books just happened to be the books that we enjoyed reading together the most or had positive interactions over.  See my original post about the project here. It became a family project.
