What Wee Read
This week's What Wee Read features hidden surprises, lovely design and lots of "little" treats. Enjoy.
Little Owl Lost by Chris Haughton
When a little owl falls from his nest and gets lost, his eager (but not so bright) squirrel friend tries to help him find his mama. Our boys love playing along. "No, that's NOT the mommy!" Haughton is one of our all-time favorite illustrators, and this engaging, adorable book is one of his best. And it has a great surprise ending.
Spot It! by Delphine Chedru
This is a lovely designer-y book that kids seem to love as much as adults. Each page features a beautiful pattern, with creatures cleverly hidden inside. Kids get a kick out of spotting them (as the title suggests)—again and again and again—and you get to enjoy watching chubby fingers point out their discoveries.
10 Little Rubber Ducks by Eric Carle
Follow the adventures of 10 little rubber ducks swept overboard in a storm. It's full of fun surprises, especially when—spoiler alert—one of them joins up with a real mama duck floating with her babies. Each duckling gives a good night quack, and there's a button that kids can push to make the rubber duck squeak. It makes for a fun bedtime read.
