Where has September gone? I’m shocked at how quickly the month has flown by. Seems only fitting that today’s theme for What to Read Wednesday is birds. Here are two of our favorite series featuring our feathered friends.
We first discovered Gossie when G was three and they’ve been a part of our family library ever since. These goslings are pretty much toddlers and preschoolers in feathers. Dunrea has a gift for conveying the feelings and attitudes of the two to five set in charming, whimsical illustrations. The characters are completely loveable, from Gossie and Gertie and their rainboots and Ollie who won’t come out of his shell, to the forgetful Peedie and the forever-hungry Boo Boo. Be sure to add these and other Gossie titles to your flock.
The Pigeon Series (Mo Willems)
Oh, Pigeon. You fit in so well in this house. Strong willed, opinionated and (mostly) charming, Pigeon knows what he wants and isn’t afraid to ask (or strong-arm) for it. Drive a bus? Yes! Eat a cookie? Of course? Have a hot dog party? Why not! Take a bath? Absolutely! Mo Willems is a creative genius, and Pigeon’s antics will keep you and your children giggling for hours.
