On Our Bookshelf: January Favorites

On Our Bookshelf: January Favorites
Even in the midst of the chaos of an overseas move, we’ve found a lot of time to read together. Perhaps reading books together has been even more comforting in the midst of all this change and the things we can’t control? Although our interpretation and perception of the book may change as we change, the words and pictures are always the same and enjoyed best together with each other. Enjoy our favorite picks of books we’ve been reading together with our children, as a family or studying and sharing together. I’ve needed the stories and snuggles with my children as much as they have needed comfort and calm.

For babies, toddlers and preschoolers:

Where’s Spot by Eric Hill


Barnyard Dance by Sandra Boynton


I am a Bunny by Ole Risom Illustrated by Richard Scarry


Preschool- young elementary
