Little Library

kid's books | La La Lovely

I like children’s books.  Love them, really.  So much so, I attempted to write one, before there was a blog.  Who knows, maybe one day, some day, I’ll dust off those pages and try to do something with it.

Children’s books are just magic.  I love the magic.  The story.  The pictures.  The imagination.  The anything is possible.  The animals talking.  The people flying.

This summer we started going to the library, again.  I say again, because we are commiters and quitters.  I have to pay for a library card and the last time I did, we were always leaving as my kid’s were screaming and I was trying not to cry.  But, this year, we were just the right ages and it was real fun.  We found many fun books we loved, and had fun scouring the shelves.  I came across two that I thought but these two were worth the . . .

 

 

share.  The first is called Busy Bunny Days.  It’s not really a story, and not necessarily an activity book, but a a bit of both.  There are darling characters that are busy about their day, and you have find them in the city, in the country and so on.  My kid’s loved peering into the houses and finding the animal families and seeing what they were up to.  I’d love to add this one to our collection.

The other book we particularly liked is called Sneaky Weasel .  The name sold it for the boys.  It was a cute, but also was a great lesson about how we treat others and behavior.

What children’s books are you loving, lately?  Are you a fan of taking your little ones to the library?

Here are a few other children’s books I’m la la loving!

    Yes…. it does remind me of that too! The little characters are so darling… I kind of want to be in the story. Save the books, they will love to show them to their kids one day. And, I just may! Thanks for the encouragement! xo . t

    I just discovered Tiny Creatures: The World of Microbes by Nicola Davies. I haven’t had the chance to read it yet, but I read about it on Brain Pickings and Maria Papova always has such good recommendations!

    I went into a book shop the other day and they had a beautifully illustrated book on display about acorns who were fed up with being eaten by squirrels and they set out looking for a new place to call home. I live in Japan, so the book was written in Japanese. I can’t remember the title, I should have written it down!

    I wish there more children in my life that I could read too. But for now, when I go to the library I mostly check out children’s books as a way to study foreign languages. Children’s books are often simply written and it’s easy to pick out the meaning of never before seen words.

    When I first moved to Japan, I bought a super cute children’s book called Ringo Kamo Shirenai, which roughly translates as Is It An Apple? It’s an illustrated story about a little boy who sees an apple for the first time and wonders what it could be. The boy has a wild imagination, which makes the story both adventurous and adorable.

    I think writing a children’s book would be fabulous! In an interview with a children’s book author I heard the other day, she said literature is not a pie it doesn’t run out. It only gets better with new authors and new voices!
