What’s cuter than a kitten and more fun than a unicorn? A Kitty Corn, of course!
This fun and colorful book starts out with the line, “Kitty thinks she might be a unicorn”.
She is proud to be a unicorn…unfortunately, none of her friends agree. They all insist she is a kitty. Then one day, Kitty meets a real unicorn and “feels no bigger than a ball of lint”.
She begins to slink away disappointed until the unicorn confesses that he is actually a kitty-corn and a beautiful friendship blossoms.
This book is fun and silly and full of adorable illustrations. A fun addition to any preschool library.
Unicorn Crafts Your Kids Will Love
Don’t just read the book about Kittycorn, continue the learning with these fun activities.
Sam’s First Word
Everyone in the family wants newish baby Sam to say their name first. They use every trick in the book. Whispering to Sam, singing to Sam, telling Sam stories, and writing Sam poems…but no one is paying attention to baby Sam until she says something that really gets their attention.
I guarantee your toddler will love the surprise ending to this book and beg you to read it again and again.
This book features a caucasian family along with their neighbor Mr. Theotopolous. This book also contains lost of pictures of Sam after she strips off her pajamas and diaper. If your kids are anything like mine, they will delight in these illustrations and giggle as you read it.
Sam’s First Word is written by Bea Birdsong and Illustrated by Holly Hatam. Both women believe in using books to empower and forge new connections. And I believe in using books to enlarge the world for our children and nurture relationships as you read together.
