Me on the Map

Me On the Map by Joan Sweeney, illustrated by Annette Cable is a book we got several years ago as a prize from our library's summer reading program, and it quickly became a favorite with my kids. The text is simple and is a great introduction to basic geography.

It is also a great way to start your kids learning where they, state, town, street, and house number! You can't beat the price on Amazon either, less than $4 and free shipping. This is one I highly recommend owning!

The Pencil

The Pencil is a witty and creative book that starts with a blank page and...a pencil! Follow the pencil as it experiments with drawing (and naming) people, animals, places, and finally a paintbrush.

What will happen when the drawings want things changed? Then the pencil draws something that destroys his hard work and threatens his existence; how will he solve the problem?

This is a fun and quirky book that we all enjoy!

Open the pages of Journey and prepare for an exhilarating adventure as a little girl uses her imagination (and a red crayon) to discover fantastic new places.

A doorway to an enchanted wood is just the start of her travels. And in the end she just might meet someone else who will share we love for adventure and imagination.

This book is told completely by its illustrations, and each one is vibrant, full of details, and gives the reader the chance to tell the story through however many words you choose. I enjoy this book as much as my children, and I especially love how they can "read" it to me, adding in what sticks out to them on each page. A 2014 Caldecott Honor Book.
