First up - Cynthia Rylant's newest series, Brownie & Pearl. Although today I used Brownie & Pearl Step Out, I'll feature her latest, Brownie & Pearl Grab a Bite.
- Rylant, Cynthia. 2011. Brownie & Pearl Grab a Bite. Ill. by Brian Biggs. New York: Beach Lane.
Personally, I love that Brownie eats string cheese (enjoying the peeling as much as the eating) and that she bites her Saltines into shapes.
Since I was loosely basing my storytime on the number two, I used an older title that we had in our storytime collection. I'd never used this board book before (we have multiple copies so that each child and caregiver can follow along in their own copy), but I certainly will again! Toddler Two is by the very kind and friendly, Anastasia Suen - author, teacher, consultant, and organizer of our weekly Nonfiction Monday roundups.
The simple words, beautifully detailed felt art, and collection of commonplace items (tricycle, dog, ball, sandbox) make this a picture-perfect picture book for sharing with toddlers.
Q: Can it be that Cynthia Rylant doesn't have a website?
