What My Child Is Reading - October 17

This is a new weekly book meme that focuses on children's books, hosted by Mouse Grows, Mouse Learns. This week, I'm going to focus on lift-the-flap books, which my kids are wild about right now.

Corduroy's Birthday by Don Freeman and illustrated by Lisa McCue starts with Corduroy receiving an invitation to his friend Checkerboard Bunny's house. It then shows his friend's party preparations and the fun activities that take place at the surprise party. The book has multiple flaps on each page. My kids' favorite flap in the book is the birthday candles flap, which are lit on the top flap, and blown out underneath. They like to pretend they're blowing out the candles.


Where's Spot? by Eric Hill is an adorable lift-the-flap book that my daughter has been requesting lately. Spot's mother goes searching for him when she sees that he hasn't eaten his dinner. She looks inside, behind, and under things all over the house and is surprised to find everyone but Spot, until the end. My daughter especially likes the alligator under the bed.


Who's New at the Zoo? by Susan Knopf is a book my son likes to read. It is a board book with a lot of different flaps on each page, and each flap often has little facts about animals on the underside along with the picture underneath. Danny Dozer, Barney Backhoe, and their other John Deere tractor friends work on new animal habitats for the animals that are new to the zoo. The flaps are a little hard to open for younger toddlers, but they enjoy all of the different things hidden below the flaps.


That's what my kids are reading this week. Visit Mouse Grows, Mouse Learns for more children's book suggestions.
