What Wyatt’s Reading – August

We have been reading like crazy over here! I usually do this post at the end of the month or I try to, but we have been reading so much that I posted early. These are our favorites so far this month… some his, some mine lol.

I am Not a Skunk is a super adorable book about a cat that was mistaken for a skunk – when the family realized it really was a cat, they gave him a home! We were graciously gifted this book by author Ellen Pilch, and Wyatt loves it! The cat in the book looks so much like our Maggie cat!

We read two Mermaid books too – Wyatt loved the story of Pearl, a mermaid whose job it was to raise the moon, and I loved Tallulah, and her petoskey stone. (plus, we are Michiganders!)

I have read Over in a River over and over and over…this was a favorite of Wyatt’s. It had a great map of some of the rivers of the United States and the animals that call those rivers home. Really cool.

Leo Lionni, Kevin Henkes, and Eric Carle are perennial favorites, am I right? I totally love Henkes books and was so excited to share them with Wyatt when he was born. He loves them too, and he is also a fan of Lionni, an author I never really was super drawn to but now see the appeal, thanks to the kiddo. And Eric Carle is just so talented! I do have to say the illustration in this book of the grouchy ladybug saying “Go away” kind of makes me giggle, which is wrong, I know. Something about it though…lol.

Finally our pal Crinkleroot! I love these books to teach Wyatt about nature. This one is a little advanced for him but was a good place to start. And I learned from it too!

Have you read any of these?

  1. What a good selection of books. I love seeing the ones mom’s like just for our grandbugs! I want them to love reading now! (They’re 2 years, six months and one year, one month! It’ll be awhile but they do seem to like books!)

    Thank you for writing about I Am Not A Skunk. I am so glad that Wyatt enjoyed it. I need to get the mermaid books for my great-niece, she is really into mermaids. πŸ™‚

  4. Thanks for sharing! I used to do a feature called Friday Friends on my children’s blog, and I have been thinking about starting it up again as I am freshening up the blog in hopes of being more active there. What it was was a post with links to the kids’ book pages my blogging buddies had posted during the week. If I start it up again, would you mind if I linked the posts you make about Wyatt’s books? πŸ“š
