Read-Aloud Tuesday: Dec. 10

Each Tuesday, I read stories to my boy H’s Montessori classroom.  In classic librarian form, I research and choose books I think they’ll like (and that I like, too!).  Here are this week’s books:

rosies-magic-horseRosie’s Magic Horse by Russell Hoban

What do ice pop sticks, horses, and treasure have in common?  Rosie!  A fantastic flight of fantasy, this is for kids who willingly suspend belief as they read stories.  Adults, prepare yourselves: this is unlike anything you’ve ever read!  Share with ages 3-8.

tap-the-magic-treeTap the Magic Tree by Christie Matheson.

“There’s magic in this bare brown tree.  Tap in once. Turn the page to see.”   Interactive and clever, this is more than a simple book of seasons.  Reminiscent of Herve Tulliet’s Press Here, it is a lovely addition to the interactive book market.  Share with all ages.

big-snow-jonathan-beanBig Snow by Jonathan Bean

Young David longs for snow – a big snow, the kind that covers the grass.  As he waits, he helps his mom with chores around the house (making cookies, changing the sheets, etc.), which inevitably remind him of snow.  When Dad comes home early, it’s clear: big snow is here.  This is the perfect book to read with preschoolers when snow is in the forecast.  Share with ages 3-7.
