Reading Together

Posts Tagged ‘holiday books

babyDavid Milgrim’s newest book Best Baby Ever is a fantastic book to share with little ones, give to new parents or to commemorate a child’s first day of school.  A new baby is the best baby ever to every parent.  In Milgrim’s book we watch a new baby grow up and the proud parents look on.  From the baby’s first smile to first steps and as the baby walks out the door to get on the school bus for the first day of school.  I have to say I get choked up at the end when I think of my own kids starting school and I am thankful I am still a few years away from my oldest getting on a school bus! My daughter enjoys reading this together because she enjoys books about babies since we have a new one at home.  She exclaimed to her baby brother, “You’re the BEST BABY EVER!” when we were reading this.

Nicholas Duck is mistaken for Santa Claus by all the other animals when he finds a Santa hat and coat on his door step.  Wearing it, the other animals begin to tell him what they want for Christmas.  Mistakenly, Nicholas becomes Santa Duck and passes on everyone’s Christmas wishes to the real Santa and forgets all about what he wants himself.  Don’t worry, Santa doesn’t leave him out! A wonderful addition to the many holiday books on our library’s shelf.  Santa Duck is an adorable character and the cartoon talking bubbles Milgrim uses make this a fun read aloud.
