Happy National Poetry Month!
It's never too early introduce your littles to poetry, and I've compiled a list of picture books that can help you do just that.
Below I've included books that feature poetry as well as books that share the biographies of great poets.
The starred (*) titles are books I own or have borrowed from the library, and the rest are titles I hope to check out soon.
I've also included a link to my poetry collection Words or Water, but that one is just for the adults ;)
What picture books featuring poetry do you and your family love?
Picture Books: Women's History Month & International Women's Day!
Happy Women's History Month and International Women's Day (3/8)!
For this edition of Comelibritos' Corner (Little Bookworm's Corner), I've compiled picture books that celebrate extraordinary women for you to share with the littles in your life. Add some of these to your collection and enjoy them all year round!
The books below are organized in four categories:
The titles with a (*) next to their names are books I own or have taken out of the library and can recommend first hand. The rest are titles I think sound interesting and I'm planning to check out myself soon.
Happy Reading! & ¡Que Vivan Las Mujeres!
Holiday Picture Books: Thanksgiving through Día de Los Reyes
That whirlwind that is the holiday season is almost upon us!
While the holidays can be stressful, there is one part I really enjoy: displaying our holiday picture books and discovering new ones!
I always think about how books can serve as both mirrors and windows for the little ones in our lives.
We use books as mirrors when we share our family's holiday traditions -- like watching the Macy's Parade, singing aguinaldos, or waiting for gifts from Los Tres Reyes Magos.
We use books as windows when we read together about how other families celebrate during this time of the year.
Holiday books also make great GIFTS! So if you're not sure what to get for your favorite kids this season, consider adding to their holiday book collections.
To get you started, I've included some of our family's favorite books (and a music album) below!
Don't forget to share some of your family's favorites in the comments.
