read-alouds for february 2013

March 7, 2013

Barton, Chris.  Shark vs. Train

Beskow, Elsa. Pelle’s New Suit

Billingsley, Franny. Big Bad Bunny

Birdsall, Jeanne. Flora’s Very Windy Day

Dunklee, Annika.  My Name is Elizabeth

Fleming, CandaceBoxes for Katje

Fox, Mem. Koala Lou

Freedman, Deborah. Blue Chicken

Fucile, Tony. Let’s Do Nothing

Graham, Bob. How to Heal a Broken Wing


Our favorite reads from this month were: Boxes for Katje, My Name is Elizabeth, Pelle’s New Suit, and Let’s Do Nothing.  My Name is Elizabeth made Sam belly laugh just about every time we read it.  It’s my new go-to gift for all the little Elizabeths in our life.  And Boxes for Katje is now on my personal list of kid lit favorites, it was too long for Peter but Sam really enjoyed it.  Such a beautiful story of gratitude and generosity for little ones.  And both boys loved Pelle’s New Suit, reminding me much of Charlie Needs a Cloak in how the author shares the step by step process of making new clothes from sheep’s wool.

    I was so hoping someone would have read “my name is elizabeth.” Did you by chance find it at the library? I’m now going to order it for sure! Love these updates:)

    Thank you for these wonderful lists! My 5 year old son can recite Drummer Hoff by heart now. A big thanks from So. Oregon! 🙂
