Brown Bear Brown Bear Slide and Find By Bill Martin Jr. / Eric Carle
Everyone knows the words to this classic and catchy story, but add in sliding doors and you will delight every reader young and old!
- Add a Books and Cookies Teddy Bear to make this a great gift!
Snuggle Puppy A Little Love Song By Sandra Boynton
Everything by Sandra Boynton brings me a lot of joy, but this one if like a hug in book…. So sweet and reads like a song. This one is a FAVORITE!

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom By Bill Martin Jr. and John Archambault
This rhythmic and rhyming read aloud gives a super fun spin on reading the alphabet. "A told b, and b told c, 'I'll meet you at the top of the coconut tree'"… which may seem like a good idea till the whole alphabet falls down! “Chicka Chicka BOOM BOOM!”
- Add a shaker or drum by Honer Kids to keep the beat!

I love this book! This is one of my favorite read alouds that celebrates everything about ourselves. From Beaver Breath to Stinky Toes, this joyful ode to self-esteem will have everyone smiling!
