Our Top 25 Read-Aloud Picture Books Part 3

So far, we have covered a selection of books thought to build character and to give a taste of culture and history.  The information is on the Nourished and Nurtured blog.  The next category is:

Fun and Silly Picture Books







Some Smug Slug by Pamela Duncan Edwards – My kids adore this book, which tells the story of a slug who travels unawares to the top of a toad, and gets promptly eaten.  I have great fun reading this book, filled with an amazing number of “s” words.






Make Way for Ducklings by Robert McCloskey – Mr. and Mrs. Mallard seek to find a safe place to raise their ducklings in this great story.  My kids love seeing the city life in this book, and my son especially loves the friendly policemen who come to the rescue.






Sophie and the Next-Door Monsters by Chris Case – Sophie starts out being scared of her new monstrous neighbors, but in the end she makes a new friend. My kids love seeing the monster child turn Sophie’s cat into a potato and then back again to a cat.





The Hat by Jan Brett – Hedgie the hedghog gets a mitten stuck on his head, and soon enough all the other animals want something to keep them warm for the winter, too.  We adore Jan Brett’s illustrations and the way she shows previews of what is to come on the right side of every page. My kids laugh and laugh at the animals wearing woolens.



Little Pea by Amy Krouse Rosenthal- Little Pea hates candy. But he has to finish it before he can have his spinach dessert. My kids love this story; they can’t imagine anyone hating candy and I think it makes them more excited about eating veggies too.


We have one more category to go.  Talk to you again next week!


Marion Lovato is the author of Sam, the Superkitty.  Her book describes an ordinary cat changing into a superhero to protect his family from things that go bump in the night.  Available on Amazon as a paperback or Kindle edition.  http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1604588667
