Themes: children, families, rhyming stories
Opening: One little, two little, three little children.
Summary: (from my library catalog) A rhyming celebration of the diversity and universality of children and their families.Why I like this book: The more I read to toddlers, the more I love solid rhythmic rhyming stories that embrace concepts without becoming pedagogic. This hits the mark in the best way, enhanced by beautiful soft illustrations where everyone can find a character with which to identify.Resources/Activities: discuss what kinds of families there are and what matters, what makes a family a family.For more Perfect Picture Book picks with teacher/parent resources, check out the list on Susanna Hill’s blog HERE.
