All our little boy wants to do is sit quietly and read, but his friend Tiger wants attention and will do anything to get it! He growls like a bear, whistles like a train and even yells like the Karate Kid. What's our hero to do to get some quiet so he can read? Why, just Read to Tiger, of course. All ends well in this wonderful sequel to Tiger Can't Sleep by S. J. Fore.
Kevin Henkes and his wife, Laura Dronzek, team up to create Oh! a delightful winter story. After a night snowfall, the ground is covered in white. A squirrel, a rabbit, a cat, a dog, and two children all want to play in the soft snow. This is a nice, simple book for beginning readers. It is also a great read-aloud for younger children. Kevin’s website has information about some of his books as well as coloring pages and other activities.

I remember singing a version of “Knick Knack Paddy Whack” way back in elementary school. I recently discovered a book called Knick Knack Paddy Whack that has colorful collage illustrations by Christiane Engel. An older gentleman plays a drum and several children play a variety of musical instruments. A cute dog with a bone follows the man and the children as they parade through the neighborhood and stop for a bite to eat. A CD with vocals by Mr. Steve accompanies this delightful book, so that readers can listen and sing while turning the pages.
Happy reading, listening and singing!
