On one of my most recent posts on my Moomettesgram’s Musings WAHM blog I mentioned I’m participating in a new publishing concept called “Cross Blog Conversation.” I divulged that I am a frustrated librarian at heart, and as a child spent a significant amount of time reading.

I passed along my life-long passion for books to both of my daughters, and hopefully my granddaughter, ‘Lil Moomette will follow in our footsteps.

As one of those people who can spend hours perusing the stacks of a library, or idling the hours away at second-hand bookstores while day-tripping or on vacation, it seems I’m always on the lookout for the perfect book.

I believe I’ve found some!  All grand moms like to give gifts to their grandchildren, and I am no exception.  When I was asked to review several books from the author Leslie Patricelli (Candlewick Press), I jumped at the chance.

Leslie manages to capture the fun and silliness of being a child through bright and engaging artwork, yet at the same time, encouraging the development of simple concepts.

Baby Happy Baby Sad

The first book is Baby Happy Baby Sad.  This book is small yet sturdy enough that ‘Lil Moomette, who’s 2-1/2 could flip through the pages all by herself.  What I liked about it was that if something spills on it, the lamination allows it to be wiped off quickly. Each page is unique in that it provides situations that the child would be able to identify with:  Petting a puppy is Happy while dropping ice cream is Sad.

The next book by Leslie Patricelli, Higher! Higher! is a little larger for a child to handle.  The concept is about a child’s adventure on a swing  ~ examples of the higher one goes, the more you can see: in a swing; in an airplane or into outer space.higherhigher51ws2ubcbkl_sl500_aa240_1

Leslie has received accolades  from magazines such as Scholastic Parent and Child and School Library Journal.

I recommend adding these titles to your book list when looking for the perfect birthday present for little ones or addition for story hour whether you’re a daycare provider or homeschooling mom.

Recommended for ages 1-5
