Links from yesterday’s Read Aloud Thursday:
- Catherine @ A Spirited Mind writes about a generous number of picture books set in Holland. This post is a fantastic resource for anyone who wants to embark on a study of countries, as I hope to do this summer!
- Heather @ Books for Breakfast keeps us in suspense–will the kindly Miss Biscuit and her ragdoll, Violet Pickles, find their retirement cottage or something else? Check out her entertaining (and highly visual, with lots of illustrations from the book!) post about Biscuit, Buttons, and Pickles: Ivy Cottage by E.J. Taylor.
- Annette @ Live, Learn, Love writes about a couple of favorite beginning chapter books, as well as a wonderful Winnie-the-Pooh series that we’ve also enjoyed at the House of Hope. Her picks are classics!
- Rocker Mom @ The Linton Academy snagged a couple of winners on her first trip to her new library: a nonfiction title in what looks to be a good series and a fabulous sounding picture book about a little boy who creates his own miniature town.
- Janelle @ Brimful Curiosities writes about Here Comes Jack Frost, a book that is just perfect for this time of year! Of course, she also includes a fun art activity. Check it out!
- Alice @ Supratentorial, a pediatrician herself, highlights books that center around going to the hospital. She admits that the medical inaccuracies in the books only bother her a little. 😉 Seriously, this is a great post if someone in your child’s life is facing a hospital stay and you’re looking for resources to prepare your child for what to expect.
- Anna @ Mahers Hill Academy bemoans her lack of Yorkshire accent while she reads aloud James Herriot’s Treasury for Children. Oh, how I relate! 🙂
- Stephanie of Stephanie’s Mommy Brain shared The Courage of Sarah Noble with her children. This is a book I’ve been meaning to find for us to read, and I’m glad Stephanie reminded me of it!
- Life in the Tribe highlights some fun picture books about families. We love The Relatives Came!
That’s a lot of good reading! Don’t miss the comments on the original RAT post, though–some good discussion going on there this week, too.
Many thanks to everyone who participated this week! Have a great weekend!
