Books: a few more really fun picture books

Here are a few more of our finds from the picture book stacks:

Madlenka written by and illustrated by Peter Sis – is a wonderful story about a little girl, a loose tooth, and her multi-national/cultural neighborhood. This illustrations are fantastic and very detailed!

Madlenka’s Dog written by and illustrated by Peter Sis – continues Madlenka’s adventures, this time with an invisible dog that everyone “sees” differently!

King Bidgood’s in the Bathtub by Audrey Wood, illustrated by Don Wood – a very cute book about a king who refuses to get out of the bath, no matter what people suggest to do instead! There is a CD with this one that has silly songs that follow the story (but not the text exactly).

Grandma’s Feather Bed adapted and illustrated by Christopher Canyon – this is John Denver’s “classic” song with silly illustrations. There is a CD with this book that we played MANY times so the kids could giggle and learn the words!
