Kiddie Lit -- revisited

There is a book fair at daycare this week. And even though we have enough books to start our own kiddie library, I'm always a sucker to buy more books for the girls. Jessie has hit that stage of wanting to literally devour books and Maggie is starting to ask for "just one more book" at night. I haven't gotten her into chapter books yet, but they have started some in Pre-K, so I'm really hoping that she's about ready to start the Little House series.

Here are a few books that we've gotten from the daycare book fairs

Shark vs. Train: who's tougher? who's smarter? Who wins a video competition? Well, neither because they don't have thumbs!
Dinosaurs Love Underpants: want to know the real reason dinosaurs went extinct? It was really because of their love of underpants!
Stop that Pickle!: A tale similar to the "Gingerbread Man" with a twist at the end. Maggie loves to join in with "Stop that Pickle!" in different voices that make Jessie giggle nonstop.
ABC Animal Jamboree (Rumble in the Jungle, Commotion in the Ocean) I'm planning to purchase this one for Jessie's first birthday. At Maggie's old daycare, they had the "Rumble in the Jungle" and "Commotion in the Ocean" which we would read in the mornings. Each page has a different animal with a different type of poem, some rhyming, some rhythmic, and a few limericks!
