What To Read Quicklist (Pre-K)

One of my favorite children’s picture book authors is Valeri Gorbachev (here’s a charming interview with the Brooklyn-based author/illustrator). If you see his name on the book, chances are it’s a sweet story about anthropomorphized- could I possibly have spelled that right the first time?- animals.  Here are my top 5:

  1. Catty Jane Who Hated the Rain My middle boy called this his favorite book FOR. YEARS. It was one of those books we checked out from the library every time.
  2. That’s What Friends Are For Everyone needs these guys to teach a class on what it means to be a friend.
  3. Shhh! A sweet book for a house with a new baby.
  4. Turtle’s Penguin Day A great book for school awareness.
  5. Christopher Counting A sweet tale for young counters everywhere!
