What We're Reading


some of our regular night time routine reads as of late!

1. The Lady with the Alligator Purse, by Nadine Bernard Westcott. We got this book when Max was a newborn. I've read it to him so many times since then as I especially love the naturally rhythm of the words (kind of like the Gruffalo). Apparently it's supposed to be a song, but for the life of me I can't figure out a singing beat to it, i find that just reading makes your words dance as it is. At age 3, he's finally interested in the story as well as paying attention to the illustrations. As a nurse, I also like that the "not all bugs need drugs" concept is portrayed in the story (ok i'm a nerd) hehe

2. If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, by Laura Numeroff. We recently got this book as a gift from our friend Helen. The first time I read it, i was really tired and I was annoyed at this mouse. The next night, slightly more perky, the book was actually pretty funny. I loved that I can translate the simple words into Tagalog for the bilingual feel. I also liked that the illustrations had varying emotions and gave mood to the story!

The Tale of Three Trees, retold by Angela Elwell Hunt. We got this as a gift a couple of years ago and I for one still love reading it to this day. I wouldn't say the illustrations are bold and bright like the books above, but it is such a beautiful tale. I think this would be a great book not just for kids, but  for adults as well. Truly beautiful.

Our little library is getting pretty full but i'm always on the hunt for a great story!
