Reading Rocks: It's good to be YOU!

"So please, oh PLEASE, we beg, we pray, Go throw your TV set away, 
And in its place you can install, A lovely bookshelf on the wall."
— Roald Dahl, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Every week I post a list of 3 books to read to your kids. Buy them, borrow them, read them cherish them, share them.

This week's list represents a handful of my favorite "be yourself" books.  These are fun to read, and great for boys and girls, ages 3+

I Wish That I Had Duck Feet 
by Theo LeSieg (aka Dr. Seuss)
This is one of my favorite books to read out loud.  
As Theo LeSieg, Dr. Seuss was able to write in a
different voice (no made up words or places in this book).  
The beat and rhythm of the verse is fun and catchy.  
Follow the little boy as he thinks about all the things he'd like 
to have only to realize the best thing to be is... himself!

A Porcupine Named Fluffy
by: Helen Lester
Find out what happens when Fluffy (the porcupine) trys to be more... fluffy.  
Hilarious and heartwarming.   


by: Margie Palatini
Try and try as he might, Moose can't do ANYTHING about is unruly mustache.
By the end he discovers he's not the only one with this problem... and that's ok.
