Have You Got My Purr? by Judy West.This was my six year old daughter's favorite book. This little kitten hears his mother make a purring sound and sets off to find his own purr. What the little kitten soon discovers is that he had it inside of him the entire time.
Glad Monster Sad Monster by Ed E. Emberly. At first, I thought this was a scary book, but my children didn't think so. After reading it to my four and five year old girls, they fell in love with all of the different colored monsters, who have the same feelings as we do. There are pages that unfold to be used as masks. My children liked to make monster sounds that imitated the monsters feelings (happy monsters: they laughed; sad monsters: they boo-hooed; angry monsters: they growled.) This book also helped my children to not be afraid of monsters.
I Like Myself by Karen Beaumont. This little girl likes her self exactly the way she is. Inside and out, and she isn't bothered by the way others may see her.
Jubal's Wish by Audrey Wood. My seven year old daughter bought this book. Jubal (a bullfrog) is looking for neighbors to have a picnic with, but everyone he asks is unhappy. Jubal makes a wish for his friends to be as happy as he is. Just when he thought his wish didn't work, disaster strikes and his neighbors pull together to save Jubal.
Night House Bright House by Monica Wellington. An interesting book of things you could find lying around in each room of your house. Rhymes. Word/picture association. My children took turns reading this book one page at a time.
The Poky Little Puppy by Janette Sebring Lowrey. This story was one of my childhood favorites and my children loved it, too. This puppy and his four brothers and sisters go against their mothers warnings and dig holes under a fence to go expoloring. When it's time to go home, mother is waiting.
Horton Hears a Who by Dr. Seuss. An Elephant named Horton hears a tiny voice coming from a small speck of dust. The other animals do not believe him. Horton tries to save his little friend because he believes a person is a person, no matter how small.
