E has been battling the stomach bug the last couple days, so I don't have a great post planned for today. It was all I could do to get up, dressed, and disinfect the house this morning. Instead, I thought I would join a wonderful party at a wonderful blog. Here are the books we've been reading this week:
by Doreen Cronin
The title says it all! This adorable picture book is the diary of an adolecent earthworm and is absolutely adorable. I don't want to tell you much about it, and ruin it for you, but trust me that the story - while not overly educational - is as entertaining as it is endearing.
by Daisy Meadows
E started on chapter books this past winter, and the Fairy series are one of the few preschool-age appropriate chapter books I have come across. Each book focuses on a different fairy relative to that series: colors, pets, musical instruments... it's quite the franchise. E read the entire book during "nap" time, so I think I'm going to need to find more at the library soon.

This is A's current favorite book. I inherited it from my sister - it's honestly not one that would have caught my eye. The pages are of different big and little things: bears, hands, leaves, chairs, etc. Each page says "Big Bear and Little Bear." Yep, that's it. Totally simple and the pictures aren't even that great, but A LOVES it. She's been carrying the book everywhere around the house and "reading" it to herself. Her language development has really taken off these past few weeks, and I think she's enjoying being able to name things like "bear," "chair," and "hands." She will constantly interrupt me to have me help her discern which is the big object and which is the small.
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
