ABC's and Apple Trees -- Loving and thoughtful care for your child

We Love to Read

We love nothing more than to read and share stories!  These quality children's books stand up to reading - and re-reading - and re-reading - believe me, I know! Here are links to websites and read-alouds of some of our favourite children's books and authors:

  • Bob Macleod's Superhero ABC is a delightful age-appropriate story for boys and girls who love superheroes. Here's the author website         http://www.bobmcleod.com/abc.ht  and here's a  read-aloud  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2hrXQYCHeBo
  • Jacky Davis and David Soman's books about Ladybug Girl and Bumblebee Boy are destined to be classics.  http://www.ladybuggirl.com/
  • Bethanie Deeney Murgula's books about Zoe are fantastic. Like Davis and Soman, Murgula understands how children think and play. /http://www.aquapup.com/ 
  • One year, we did a project where we read every single one of Robert Munsch's 60 published books.  I loved his work before, but that gave me a deep appreciation of his talents as an author, storyteller, and collaborator.  http://robertmunsch.com/books
  • Doctor Seuss - we all loved his books in our own childhoods and for good reason.  No one has ever created more charming and practical books for early readers than Green Eggs and Ham and Hop on Pop.  http://www.seussville.com/
