Books for the Letter P
My children and husband absolutely love these National Geographic books! I think we have them all. We rotate them according to the season. They are nonfiction but use great pictured of real kids, and they’re short enough to be an easy bedtime story. Click to order.
book review “I bought this as a fall book for my 3 year old son. He loves this book and picks it most nights before bed. He related to it since we also went to a farm to pick our pumpkins this year. It’s a cute simple book about fall and Hallo
A little boys wakes up with a longing for pancakes, and his mom is busy and so directs him to get grain, have it milled, get milk from the cow, etc in order to make the pancake.
This a fairly long, detailed story that teaches kids where their food comes from through text and Carle’s signature colorful artwork.
I would recommend this for ages 3.5 on up. This is one of my four year old’s favorite books, and he particularly loves learning about the grain being grind.
This book is a great way for children to access the concept of farm to table. It’s a bit long without much plot, but I’ve loved seeing how it has ignited my son’s curiosity.
This was a nice surprise – I bought this to read to my daughter without knowing much about it except the Caldecott honor, and it is wonderful. The illustrations (which resemble impressionist paintings) fill every inch of every page, and the scene it sets is just perfect.
The story is a nice one. This paperboy embodies both responsibility and thoughtful introspection – at the end you really get the sense that the boy is a big dreamer with the right values to embark on an exceptional life.
My granddaughter, who is 6, has loved all the pigeon books but Mo Williams. She was so excited to get this book and was able to read it herself. All of his books are insightful and have an important message.
There are lots of different books with the pigeon in them for you to read.
My daughter liked this book so much we could repeat most of it by memory.
Got this as a gift with my firstborn, and have since then, purchased it for others that were expecting. This is such a cute book, and story, and all my girls love it. Definitely recommend!
There are several other books about the pout-pout fish.
