We interrupt this Cybils-fest to bring you this week’s Read Aloud Thursday. 🙂
You’re probably expecting some shiny, new picture books for today’s RAT, but no, today I have some tried-and-true favorites that most of you probably have memorized. I’ve seen these books around for forever, but since we now have a resident two year old who loves all things vehicular, I’ve only now become intimately acquainted with the colorful, rhyming picture books of Tony Mitton and Ant Parker. The books we’ve read are from the Amazing Machine series, and they’re billed as “an information series about vehicles.” So far we’ve only read three of the titles, but since we’ve read them about 1,234,789, I know whereof I write. I’ve even learned a little something about airplanes, trains, and tractors after reading these rhyming picture books! I think these are definitely some that we’ll be adding to our private collection here at home. Until then, next up on our library list: the rest of the series! Highly, Highly Recommended.
