List Of Favorite Childrens’ Books

In Every Tiny Grain of Sand I love this book because it has really good poems and great illustrations.  I like the words used in this book and I like that it has blessing and prayers.


Velma Gratch & The Way Cool Butterfly  This book has GREAT illustrations.  It is easy for kids to read.  It tells you some facts about butterflies.  It makes me giggle when I read it.

Olive The Other Reindeer   My mom and dad purchased this book for my older brother when it was published.

The authors   J. Otto Seibold and Vivian Walsh came to Sonoma to the local bookstore and had a reading and book signing.  So this book is super special because it was signed by the Authors.  I love the illustrations.  The thick pages.  The cute reindeer’s.  It always makes me wish it was Christmas when I read this book.

I Heard It From Alice Zucchini  This is a great book for all ages.  It has great water-color pictures in it.  I love how they made poems up about veggies and a garden.  I have never read a book like this one before and it is one of my favorites.  The pictures are really cool and you never get bored with them.

Here is one of my favorite poems from the book….

Garden Lullaby

Sudden hush when the sun goes down.

Night in the garden and soothing sound of crickets chirping lullabies.

Sweet dreams, little peas, ten to a pod.

Good night, radishes, tucked under sod.

Gone are the bees and butterflies.

Heads of lettuce wilted by sun recuperate when the day is done.

Closed are all the potatoes’ eyes.

Tomatoes snooze and eggplants doze.

All is still while the moonlight glows save crickets chirping lullabies.

By the way… I love smelling new books, so does my mom.
