Normally, I like to have a theme for the week when we go to the library. I pick out the books that I have written down and then Logan will select ones that he finds interesting. This week the five books we read every day are a mixture of his picks and mine.
The Mixed Up Chameleon, by Eric Carle
Who doesn't LOVE Eric Carle? The Mixed-Up Chameleon, by Eric Carle, is about a little chameleon who wants to be like everyone else. In the end, he realizes that it is best to be himself. Logan adores animals so he had a great time identifying each animal in the story. He thought it was quite silly when the chameleon was mixed up.
I remember singing this song as a little girl. Logan LOVED this book. It was probably his favorite of the week, and he was able to recite it pretty accurately by the end of the week.
I thought that this book was going to be a little long for Logan, but he listened to the whole thing. A little boy goes out for the day with his mom, and everywhere they go, they get a dinosaur in addition to whatever else they are buying. The pictures are well done and Logan particularly liked when the boy was able to keep all the dinosaurs in the end!
What are you reading this week? Any new favorites?
