The kindergartener is left-brained artist, out of the box thinker.
The second grader devotes her time to her friends and making sure everyone feels included and happy.
Looking for books likely to be new to the children, perhaps very new or very old? Or not. Must be a good story and one that I can get multiple copies of fairly easily.
I would very much appreciate any recommendations you might have.
Bumpus Jumpus Dinosaurumpus is fun - as is Gnash, gnaw, dinosaur - poetry/rhyming books about dinosaurs (the latter part of that probably doesn't need saying! Sorry)
I don't know how readily available they would be but Schim Schimmel's Children of the Earth... Remember and Dear Children of the Earth: A Letter from Home have beautiful art work and a lovely environmental/conservationist theme.
>3 MarthaJeanne: Excellent points, MarthaJeanne, now to find such books.
>4 Peace2: The Day the Crayons Quit is a great book and well known to my nieces. I agree that the sequel does not work as well.
Bumpus Jumpus Dinosaurumpus and Gnash, gnaw, dinosaur sound delightful.
The reason I wound up posting here is that I censored a some books that I thought that I would use for political reasons. My SIL works at her daughters' school and had to call the police when a couple of Moms got into a physical fight in the run up to the US presidential election. So, less obvious diversity, no too obvious environmental/conservation issues. MY SIL would back me to the hilt, but I do not want to put her in that position.
I will look into Children of the Earth and Dear Children of the Earth for my nieces, though.
I've read about and seen An Undone Fairy Tale, I like that you've read to multiple age groups with it. Would it be too well known?
You can see that I am torturing myself a bit with this.
It is entirely possible that this will not happen now. My SIL and older nice both have the flu. My SIL has health issues that make this particularly dangerous for her. She should be in the hospital, but hospitals are way too dangerous right now. She and her daughter don't even have the same strain of the flu.
Thanks everyone, for your help with this. If nothing else, I have books to look forward to reading myself and to my nieces at bedtime.
There's Red Ranger Came Calling, Breathed and A Wish for Wings that Worked, Breathed. Both are Christmas/Santa books. Red Ranger has an awesome twist at the end.
It was a Dark and Stormy Night by Allan and Janet Ahlberg is another one that is a lot of fun.
I wouldn't worry too much about whether or not the kids might know the book. Kids love having an old favourite read to them again (and again). They also love knowing what's going to happen when their friends don't.
I live in Glendale Queens, New York.
I'm a big fan of very funny children's books. :-)
