Weekly Low Down on Kids Books 3/20/12

Unfortunately there’s nothing to report.  We’ve read and read and read this week, but each time I picked up a title from the library it was quickly tossed aside by Miss Ayla.  Nothing resonated with us.  Day after day, she kept bringing me Librarian on the Roof!  Its become the household favorite over night.  Ayla is very young, so even when she is interested in something it doesn’t guarantee we will make it all the way through the story, but she will sit and flip through the pages of Stephen Gilpin’s illustrations over and over again, and come back to it hour after hour.  She loves it.

Even now, as I type this, I had the book in my lap and she had Curious George (which she picked out all on her own,  mind you) on the floor, and she just instituted a trade.

Although, she does have a bit of a love/hate relationship with the dust jacket.  She is fascinated by it, but doesn’t want it attached to her book.  Its a slow painful process teaching a toddler to treat dust jackets with care, but she’s getting the hang of it.

M.G. King and Stephen Gilpin… Well Done!  Ayla and I look forward to owning any books you may write and illustrate in the future!
