I love Kevin Henkes. I love the characters he creates. I love the personalities he gives. I love the way his books always provide such great opportunities to have conversations with kids! I love reading Chrysanthemum to my students at school! Chester's Way is just as adorable and I love how they first are very set in their ways, because Isis can very much have her way of doing things. But then little Lily just switches things up for them! Such a cute book.
This one was such a hit that I went out to find it at Half Price Books! Isis loved it! On top of the fact that she just loves the color pink, she thought it was hilarious that the girl turns pink and then red and she loves repeating the words when I say them. I do tend to read this one with some flair, so she enjoys that as well.
With the success of Pinkalicious, I just had to continue with the series for Isis! I love that this one sparks some conversation with us about how it's okay if people like things that are different than what she likes and that everyone has different favorite things. She likes when Pinkalicious makes a friend in the end. I plan on finding the rest of the series, although I don't think they are at my library. I may have to order some from Amazon!
This book is absolutely adorable!!! I don't remember where I heard about it, but I love that it just gets rid of the fear of dragons for kids & makes it fun! Isis keeps telling me that she wants her own lovabye dragon, that's she's lonely for a dragon! Ha! I love it!
I have started going to yoga at my gym and I really love it! I've done some youtube yoga videos at home, too. Isis loves to watch and do it with me, so I found this book to read with her. We did some yoga together, too. She loves doing "yoga yoga," as she calls it.
I'd love some more recommendations! What have you been reading your kids lately?
