What My Child Is Reading

What My Child is Reading is a weekly meme hosted by Mouse Grows, Mouse Learns.  I thought this would be a fun meme to join in.  Even though I don't review children's books here on my blog, I think it's a still a good idea to share what my little ones are reading!

My daughter is five and in Kindergarten.  She is in the French Immersion program at school which means all of her learning is in French, so we read both French and English books at home, as you will see in my posts.  My son is almost three and he enjoys listening to any book we're reading no matter what the language!

So here are a few of the books we read this week:
 La coccinelle mal lunée by Eric Carle - also known as The Grouchy Ladybug.  Great for teaching kids about telling time and fabulous illustrations.  My daughter loves how the size of the page grows with the animal size, especially the blue whale fin.
 Wynken, Blynken, and Nod by Eugene Field.  Three little fishermen go sailing in a wooden shoe into the sky to go fishing.  The original title was Dutch Lullaby.  This book was picked to represent the Netherlands as we learn about different countries....and because I'm Dutch.

Where are you Bear? by Frieda Wishinsky.  This is a Canadian Alphabet Adventure, in which a teddy bear loses his little girl and goes on a search across the country for her.  I bought this book for my daughter from Scholastic because a) the little girl looks just like my daughter; b) my daughter is inseparable from her teddy bear; and c) it's Canadian!  It's a cute little book though it's more suited to my little guy as there is not much story but one word a page (a Canadian word for that letter.)


  1. I look forward to seeing more of your French picks. I'll be teaching my 3-year-old French at the beginning of the school year.

  2. Oh what sweet books! I love that your children are going to be bilingual - what a skill to have!

  3. We're very excited that the kids are going to be bilingual. And now I finally have someone to use my French with!

  4. Lovely book, we love Grouchy ladybug, good to know what it's called in French, since I'm starting to teach it to my kids.(Came here via WMIR)

  5. How neat that your daughter is learning French. The second book looks awesome! Thanks for joining WMCIR!
