I will always remember this book for its eye-catching and vibrant illustrations! The award winning classic literature follows the story of a young hungry caterpillar from birth until it becomes a beautiful butterfly. The simplicity of the book allows children to learn key everyday vocabulary (types of food, numbers, day of the week, etc.). A short book with simple writing and animated artwork; this book is always a fun and quick read for children!
Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss
Like any Dr. Seuss books, it is all about illustrations that helps create imagination. Sam-I-Am wants a boy to like green eggs and ham. Throughout the story, Sam-I-Am takes the boy to unusual places and compares the food with funny objects throughout the story as he attempts to get the boy to try the bizarre dish. While the engaging plot, rhythmic flow and simple illustrations will make your children laugh and giggle, the book also sends out an important message to have an open mind in unfamiliar and they should try new things. This book generate great discussions topics as parents and children can explore the benefits of trying new things and also talk about having courage to try something new.
