Leo joins his six-year-old big sister Elena who is thrilled to have a little brother.
This, of course, got me thinking about what I will be reading to my new grandson (after all, it has been years since I have done this). And, because I always want to bring Elena a book to read as well, I’ve been thinking about what titles she might like.
For newborns I have chosen the traditional and ever popular Goodnight Moon, Very Hungry Caterpillar, Guess How Much I love You, and Pat the Bunny and then Brian Fiocca’s Locomotive which just won the Caldecott Medal. For my granddaughter who is a terrific reader, there is Where the Wild Things Are, What Does the Fox Say?, The Polar Express, I Want My Hat Back, Make Way for Ducklings and Mrs. Rumphius.
I would love to hear your suggestions for titles for each of these age groups. There can never be too many books!
