on the reading shelf

 well, this is one thing we found on a reading shelf this week. hee, hee! her older sister asked me, "mom, is it ok that the baby is doing this?" yes, i'm okay with it. i even took a photo. lately she loves small spaces like cupboards and shelves. it's very cute.

 but really i was referring to the rotating display shelf in the reading corner. she did her reading there, too. this week's selections included:

Babies by Gyo Fujikawa (classic) {not on the shelf because she's reading it}
Otto the Book Bear by Katie Cleminson (book related)
The Gingerbread Girl by Lisa Campbell Ernst (altered fairy tale)
Chipmunk at Hollow Tree Lane by Victoria Sherrow (non-fiction/animal/science)
Princess Hyacinth: The Surprising Tale of a Girl Who Floated by Florence Parry Heide (modern fairytale/friendship/dealing with differences)
The Mitten by Jan Brett (winter)
Cats' Night Out by Caroline Stutson (counting/rhyming/beautifully illustrated)
Each Peach Pear Plum by Janet and Allan Ahlberg (classic/rhyming/altered fairytale)
The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle (classic/counting)
Madeline by Ludwig Behmelmens (classic/rhyming)
Olivia by Ian Falconer (modern classic/humorous)
various board books for baby

i try to keep a good variety of books on here, books from various genres that cover a range of subjects or interests. on occasion,  i will choose all books by one author or about one subject. but one of the main factors in choosing what i put here is that i have to like to read them myself for i know i'll be doing that a lot over the week they spend on the shelf. also, i don't trade out every book. favorites or books i want them to engage a little more stay here for longer than one week.
