As I write, this January day with the most amazing weather is drawing to a close. It was sunny and 60 degrees from mid morning until sundown. My husband was able to wash both cars (one of his favorite things to do!) and we took a long walk. In fact, as I type this, I have the windows open in my den and I’m not even cold! If this lasts, I might be able to make it until spring!
I’ve rounded up some old favorites that I think you should be able to find quite easily. In fact, all of the kids’ books to remember this week are from my public library.
kids’ books to remember: read aloud
Again this week, these stories are appropriate for everyone, even your preschoolers.
Babe, The Gallant Pig by Dick King-Smith
Anna Hibiscus by Atinuke
Pippi Longstocking by Astrid Lindgren
KIDS’ BOOKS TO REMEMBER: picture books
I’ve included a Valentine book and a Groundhog Day book, so be sure and look for these at your library soon, before they’re checked out! Also, if you enjoy this Tacky book, there are lots more in the collection.
Somebody Loves you, Mr. Hatch by Eileen Spinelli. This is a wonderful book about kindness, empathy and caring. I’m sure it will lead to some great conversations in your family.
Gretchen Groundhog, It’s Your Day! by Abby Levine
Three Cheers for Tacky by Helen Lester
KIDS’ BOOKS TO REMEMBER: chapter books
All of these books are the first in a series of books. So if your kids like one of these, there are more, which should be a help on your next library visit.
11 Birthdays by Wendy Mass
The Penderwicks by Jeanne Birdsall
Bunnicula by Deborah and James Howe

Here are two sites to help you learn what new books are coming this year. I always look forward to the new releases and often put them on hold at my library, even before they are published!
This is an opportunity to win some books for your home library!
I’ve seen this list posted so many times this week, and most recently by The Eric Carle Museum. It’s one that includes some excellent titles not to be missed. The Eric Carle Museum is a wonderful site to follow on social media, which will lead you to some excellent articles about children’s learning, children’s literature and children’s authors.
If you’re looking for a new series to read to your kiddos, here is one for you to try.
Thank you for inviting me into your inbox. Have a wonderful week, full of kids’ books to remember!
