The plan: Buy 10 books.

Why 10? because there are 5 days in the week and that gives you two weeks of solid reading materials and a whole month if you cycle through the list twice 😉

1. “Touchy-Feely books” by Fiona Watt.

2.  “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” by Eric Carle.

3. “Brown Bear, Brown Bear What do you see?” by Bill Martin Jr. and Eric Carle.

4. “If You Give a Mouse a Cookie” by Laura Joffe Numeroff and Felicia Bond

5. “The Wheels on the Bus” (Big book with yellow cover) by Annie Kubler (link reading this with song)

6. “Five Little Monkeys Finger Puppet Book” by Parragon Books

7. “Pat the Bunny” by Dorothy Kunhardt

8.  “Animals” (Baby Touch and Feel) by DK Publishing

9. “Doggies” (Boynton on Board) by Sandra Boynton

10. “The Monster at the End of This Book” by Jon Stone

10.5 “Are You My Mother?” by P.D. Eastman – This one is controversial. Some of the kids are still struggling with separation anxiety so anything that reminds them of Mama or Dada will set off the alarm bells and the streams of tears/crying. Some of my classes loved this book, others not so much.

Other book the kids will enjoy when their vocabulary is stronger:

11. ‘Oxford Reading Tree’ the best are: “The Go-Kart,” “The Dolphin pool,” “The Cat in the Tree,”  “By the Stream,” “The Rope Swing”

12. I Just Forgot (A Little Critter Book) by Mercer Mayer

13. Dora Goes to the Doctor/Dora Goes to the Dentist (Dora the Explorer) by Random House and Robert Roper

You can find these books used on Amazon for $0.01 -4.00 USD.

Or you can get them at your local thrift store.

Better yet, just nab them from your local library for free!
