More I Just Finished Reading...Top Picks for December
It is cold out there! And the perfect time to curl up and read a good book.
Ages 3 - 6
The Snowy Day is a great book to read after the snowy days we have been experiencing. Peter wakes up one morning and finds himself in a snow covered world just waiting to be explored. Published in 1962, this Caldecott Award-winning book still captures the excitement and wonder to be found after a fresh snowfall.
Each of the stories tells a tale of an extraordinary woman. The stories are one page long, and packed with information and inspiration. Opposite each page of text are portrait illustrations that were all done by female artists. These short biographies are perfect for bedtime -- you can read just one or a few!
By Thomas King
The two stories that Thomas King shares in this book are Coyote Sings to the Moon and Coyote's New Suit. The Coyote is not portrayed as a trickster in these stories, and we get to see another side of this Indigenous character. These funny and witty stories are paired with Byron Eggenschwiler's pen-and-ink illustrations to add some visual comedy.
